    and gently steady the wing above my head.

Supair Strike Harness Failure

On March 22, 2020 a paraglider pilot flying at Mt Tamborine in southern Queensland,
suffered a failure of his Supair Strike harness when the right hand carabiner loop failed. The
pilot was able to deploy his reserve and completed a successful descent under parachute
without injury.

The harness was sent to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) for examination. The
Dyneema carabiner loop was found to have failed at a stitching point where the loop was
attached with a secondary Dyneema strap. The ATSB point out that ‘this does not mean that
the stitching was inappropriate or done improperly’.

The SAFA recommends that all owners of Supair Strike harnesses have their harnesses
examined with particular attention paid to the stitching point of the carabiner loops.

A copy of the ATSB report can be downloaded here.

Our Craft



A Paraglider pilot sits in a harness below a fabric wing that holds its shape through suspension lines and air pressure.
Hang Gliding 

Hang Gliding

A Hang Glider pilot is suspended in a harness below a rigid wing which is usually an aluminium frame covered in a synthetic sail cloth.
Powered Paragliding 

Powered Paragliding

Powered Paraglider or Paramotor pilots wear a motor on their back which provides enough thrust to take off with a Paragliding wing, specifically designed for motored operations.
Microlight & PoweredHang Gliding

Microlight & Powered
Hang Gliding

Microlight trike pilots sit in a propeller-driven trike, suspended below a wing similar to a Hang Glider.
Powered Hang Gliders have a small engine contained within the harness allowing launch from flat ground.
