SEKILAS MENGENAI BANTING SELANGOR...

Banting lebih dikenali sebagai bandar persinggahan (rest town) kepada sebuah bandar lama yang bersejarah iaitu Jugra. Banting kini lebih pesat membangun berbanding Jugra disebabkan impak pembangunan Putrajaya dan KLIA di Sepang yang bersempadan dengan daerah ini. Banting terletak di daerah Kuala Langat, iaitu daerah yang kedudukannya menghala ke Selatan negeri Selangor. Jangan pula anda keliru dengan daerah Hulu Langat yang kedudukannya bertentangan sama sekali dan dekat dengan Kuala Lumpur!

Peta Banting selangor

Lihat peta Banting di atas untuk panduan lokasi Banting di Kuala Langat, Selangor. Dari Klang, anda melalui Bandar Bukit Tinggi - Telok Panglima Garang - Jenjarom - Banting. Jika dari Putrajaya/Bandar Salak Tinggi, anda boleh melalui Dengkil - Kampung Bukit Changgang - Sg. Manggis - Banting (kira-kira 50 minit perjalanan). Sama ada dari arah Klang atau Dengkil, kedua-dua jalan akan bertemu di persimpangan Taman Sg. Manggis, Banting (sebelum dekat dengan Taman Seri Banting dalam peta di atas).

 

Seronok kalau melalui kawasan kampung dari Dengkil kerana boleh nampak berapa gerai orang kampung di bahu jalan menjual pembagai hasil pertanian seperti keladi, nenas, mangga, rambutan dan sebagainya. Laluan ini jugalah menjadi salah satu laluan sukan berbasikal Le Tour de Langkawi. Jika anda dari Pantai Bagan Lalang, Sepang, anda juga boleh menuju ke sini dengan mudah, melalui jalan Tanjung Sepat - Morib - Banting.

 

Jambatan Telok Datuk merentasi Sg. Langat di Banting dilihat melalui Google Earth. Jambatan ini agak tinggi, tidak lurus dan menghubungkan kawasan di Telok Datuk dengan bandar Banting Selangor (melalui Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad). Naik jambatan ini dan jalan terus sahaja untuk ke pusat bandar. [Ke atas]

Banting Selangor

Ya, dah sampai pun...SELAMAT DATANG KE BANTING...inilah salah satu landmark di persimpangan lampu trafik utama di tengah-tengah bandar Banting. Jalan terus (Jln. Sultan Abdul Samad) untuk ke ILP Kuala Langat dan Bukit Jugra atau belok kiri (Jln. Alam Shah) untuk ke Morib.

 

Bandar Banting bukanlah bandar besar di Selangor. Jadi, Banting tidak 'jem' macam di bandar Klang. Kedudukannya terletak kira-kira 25 km daripada pusat bandar Klang. Banting merupakan antara salah sebuah bandar tua di Selangor. Di sini masih terdapat banyak bangunan-bangunan lama kedai dua tingkat di sepanjang jalan utama bandar tersebut (iaitu Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad). Pada sebelah malam, bandar Banting juga agak sepi kerana tiada aktiviti perniagaan yang banyak beroperasi. Atas sebab itulah, pihak Majlis Daerah Kuala Langat telah mewujudkan uptown Banting sebagai salah satu tarikan baru di Banting, Selangor. Lihat Uptown Banting di sini.

Pantai Morib

Pantai Morib menjadi tumpuan kerana anda berpeluang melihat pemandangan matahari terbenam di sini. Sebab itulah Goldcoast Sepang dibangunkan di Sepang, semata-mata untuk menikmati keindahan sunset!

Apa yang menarik di Bandar Banting Selangor?

Bandar Banting masih jauh daripada arus pemodenan. Tidak banyak yang dibuat oleh pihak Majlis Daerah Kuala Langat (MDKL) untuk mengindahkan bandar ini.  Hanya tiang-tiang lampu jalan yang agak berseni dan menjadi landskap pemandangan di sepanjang jalan Sultan Abdul Samad.

Istana Bandar

Istana Bandar, Banting Selangor - Located not far from the ‘Bandar Mosque’, it can be considered as its boundary. The palace, built around the end of the 19th century (year 1899), was financed by Sultan Alaeddin Suleiman Shah himself, in coincidence with the crisis occurring in the Sultan of Selangor’s palace , being the discontentment of the Tengku Ampuan Mahrum (the Sultan’s Consort). Resembling the Middle East Islamic architecture it is known as the Palace with 40 Rooms because it comprises of 40 rooms. This double storey palace was built on a 12.96 acre of land. The middle section of the palace is a two-storey, 4 room area, consist of the bedroom, Audience Hall, Royal Guestroom and His Royal Highness’s Throne room. On the upper section facing the east is the Verandah, which is a roofless spacious area with stone gratings walls as the resting place in the afternoon and evening with a small royal feasting room. This is the palace where the late Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz AlHaj was born.

In fact, during the first couple of decades in the 20th century, this palace was still used as the royal residence of the Sultan with his commoner consort, Hajah Safiah. And though, since 1903 when he was officially enthroned and resided in Klang, he always attended the Friday prayers at the Bandar Mosque. So, obviously until the completion of Ar-Rahmah Mosque in Klang (Kampung Jawa), around 1939, his highness regularly visited Bandar Temasya, held the prayers there, besides meeting his wife in Bandar palace. Only after his highness passed away in 1938 was the palace left unoccupied until now.

In short, based on this very Bandar Palace building is the single most solid evidence to show that Bandar Temasya is very well-known at least up to the first three decade of the 20th century. This is certainly fascinating. A matter that needs mentioning is the origins of the opening of Bandar Temasya by Sultan Abdul Samad actually opened the way to the glory of this place.

 

Banting Not The Only Attraction

By Stuart Michael

BANTING, a town in the district of Kuala Langat, Selangor, has a laid-back lifestyle and offers good food, reasonably-priced shopping and has a rich history. Situated on the banks of Sungai Langat, the town, with a population of about 50,000, has many attractions and one of them is a good place to shop for textiles.

The Indah Pesona Textile godown at Wisma MDKL is popular for its low-priced baju kurung and curtains. If you love saris and Punjabi suits, go to Jalan Pekan Banting. There you will find many items from India and the biggest of the shops is called Harekrishna. After watching the beautiful sunset at Morib beach, treat your family to a hearty meal as a whole stretch of stalls selling everything from satay to sotong and ikan bakar comes alive at night. On Sundays, there is a karaoke session with a small price of RM2 per song. Historically, the beach was a landing point for the British and Indian liberation forces during World War II.

Nature lovers can go jungle-trekking in the forest reserve at Bukit Jugra. Before reaching the peak, a lighthouse stands guard to guide vessels plying the Straits of Malacca. The view from the peak is breathtaking, so don’t forget to bring along a camera. Bukit Jugrah used to be called Parcelar Hill — derived from the Arabic word balasar, which means “above the head”.

Visitors should not miss the prominent Kanchong Darat landmark which is the Sidek residence belonging to Datuk Sidek Abdullah Kamar, the father of the Sidek badminton brothers. The brothers’ eldest sister stays there now, but visitors who wish to see the house are always welcome.

Before reaching Bukit Jugra, visitors will come across Makam Sultan Abdul Samad, the resting place of Sultan Abdul Samad Almarhum Raja Abdullah. He reigned as the Sultan of Selangor from 1857 to 1898. During his reign, Selangor saw its only civil war, which came to be known as the Klang War.

Banting town is also famous for its rojak mee and cendol. According to locals, the best rojak mee, which is pasembur and yellow noodles with five different curries, can be found at Restoran Tawaqal. The restaurant, run by a family of Indian Muslims from India, has been at Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad since 1941. Only two cendol stalls are worth mentioning here.

Both can be found along Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad — one in front of the old Lido cinema, which uses the traditional method to shave the ice, and the other in front of the KFC restaurant. Istana Bandar is historical as the fifth Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Alauddin Sulaiman Shah, built the royal palace in 1905.

It was the birth place of Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, the 11th Yang di-Pertuan Agong, who died in office. The palace is open daily to the public. Admission is free. Visiting hours are from 8am to 6pm. For those who want fresh fish, Kampung Endah fishing village is the spot to visit. Fishermen can be seen unloading their catch or mending broken nets here. There is a Chinese restaurant in the area and patrons can ask the restaurant to cook the fish for you.

Another popular tourist spot is Fazz Enterprise Kerepek House located at Kanchong Darat which offers 75 different traditional crackers and kuih. It is owned by the Mahmuddin Abas family which grows its own tapioca, banana and oil palm to make the snacks. The family also owns a small shop selling furniture made from Indonesian Jati wood.

Pantai Kelanang is a new tourist spot in Banting. Unlike Morib beach, which is a hive of activity, it is quite serene here. With a white sandy beach nestled behind mangrove trees, it is a place to relax and enjoy the peace and calm. To get to this beach, take the same road to Morib beach. After Tongkah, signboards have been placed to guide visitors. Banting town has suddenly captured the attention of all Malaysians and for the first time people all over the country are talking about it.

It did not even get so much of attention even when the Sidek brothers, who come from Kampung Olak Lempit not far from Banting town, were winning honours on the national and international front during their heyday. The town is located 32km from Klang and 20km from the KL International Airport (KLIA). 

The townspeople are as stunned as the rest of the nation over the brutal killing of millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya along with three others.The mood is sombre in Banting and the people were devastated, finding it difficult to believe such a ruthless crime took place in their area. Inevitably, the news of the murder and arrests had been the talking point in coffee shops, offices and schools especially over the past two days. StarMetro made a check around Banting town and found life continues to go on at a slow pace.

It resembles the usual set up of a small town which is mostly filled with double-storey shophouses. The visit also found that there were not many people out and about in the town which appeared rather quiet compared with normal days.The shops including restaurants and retail outlets were rather empty. The people seemed to have come to terms with the frequent appearance of police vehicles, journalists and photographers in town. Anthony Paul, 47, said Banting attracted a lot of attention from people all over the country. He said the news reports had also placed the town in a bad light.

ACCOMMODATION-HOTEL

City Hotel is one of many budget hotels in Banting town, Selangor. It is located in the town itself, offering basic accommodation at affordable prices. It is about 40 mins from KLIA airport.

There are many types of rooms here - from single / double bed to a 2 rooms penthouse on the top floor. Unless you really require the penthouse, I would not recommend because you need to climb 4 flight of stairs to get there .... yup there is no lift or elevator in the hotel. After all its a budget hotel. The hotel is clean and the water pressure is good with plenty of hot water.

Parking is free in front of the hotel ... it can be quite full during weekends since many families would stay here and make the daily trip to Morib beach - about 15-20 kms away. Accommodation at Morib is more expensive and limited. Next to the hotel is an eatery - Mamak restaurant which opens 24 hours a day. So it is really convenient for you to get some food should you become hungry while staying there.

So if you ever need a hotel in Banting town, you can try this hotel which is clean and convenient. Resource: Trip Advisor.

Impian Morib - Located along Morib Beach, Impian Hotel is located next to Sri Morib Golf Club. It features a pool and 2 Halal-certified dining options. Free Wi-Fi and private parking are provided. Impian Morib Hotel is a 30-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Rooms are decorated in shades of brown and come fitted with tea and coffee making facilities. An iron and hairdryer are also provided. Guests can work out in the fitness centre or play a game of volleyball in the outdoor courts. Local and Western dishes are available at Temasya Restaurant, which also offers a daily breakfast and lunch buffet. Light snacks are served at Coffee House.

This review was based on my first stay at this hotel. Staying for a meeting retreat, and I was assigned to the hotel's junior suite. This was hardly a privilege by my account as I am always very particular on room views. The layout of this hotel places the better view (partial sea & pool view) for superior and deluxe rooms, which are closer to the beach. The junior suite can be considered spacious, with a king and an unnecessary single bed. Bathroom is good but the space could have been better utilized to enlarge the room area instead. Oh yes, and you get to see the rooms on the opposite side for the room view ;-) Buffet breakfast during our stay was uniquely local, which I appreciated very much. However, I would recommend the nearby seafood restaurants for better lunch and dinner. There's practically nothing exciting happening here, hence the decision to have the meeting here must be correct as we have no other choice apart from our work focus. If you can afford leisure time, forget the beach and the limited recreational facilities (pool, gym, nearby golf course and beach vollyball). Instead, explore the nearby villages for freshly-made local snacks (kerepek) or the fishing village for better local experience. Overall, I don't have much complaints as this is one of the only two decent choices you have if you must stay overnight in Morib. But if I have to foot my own accommodation bill, a return is highly unlikely. Resource: Tripadvisor

We decided to book the hotel based on friend's review and it turned out to be a good decision. The staff were friendly and helpful, always with a smile but unfortunately hardly spoke English. The management should do something about it if they want to attract international tourists.
The chalet that we checked in was spacious, clean with nice ambience. The downside is the bathroom sink has only cold tap instead of C/H mixer.
The breakfast spread are quite nice but a bit limited choice. The pool is big but lack of umbrella shading the loungers.
Just a reminder, please be extra careful with the main road in front of the hotel as the local drivers tend to drive recklessly. In addition, there are not many restaurant to choose especially at night and the shops are not in walking distance and closed early Resource: Tripadvisor
 

What is Paragliding

 

Paragliding is a sport of assisted human flight. A paraglider is a motorless, inflatable wing, made of rip-stop nylon and fixed with Kevlar® lines that secure a pilot's harness. The pilot sits in the harness and launches the vehicle by foot, running off inclines, hills or mountains. He or she steers the wing by weight shift and application of brakes that changes the shape of the rear edge of the wing.

The function of a paraglide is to soar on wind currents. The record for staying aloft is over 11 hours, and the distance record, 186 miles (300km). The average flight for the every day enthusiast is about 3 hours, with heights reaching 15,000 feet (4,500 meters).

 

One of the advantages of paragliding is that the entire wing and harness fold up into a 30 lb (13.6 kg) backpack. This makes it easy for a paraglider to hitch-hike back from a flight, or to transport his wing by checking it in as baggage on a bus or even an airline.

 

If purchasing a paraglider, make sure it bears certifications of quality, which the dealer should explain. Recommended additional equipment consists of a variometer or altimeter, which tells you how fast you are rising or falling, and a 2-way radio. For those who love the quiet peace of soaring bird-like through the inviting sky, the investment is worth every penny.

 

Courses in paragliding are essential for anyone taking up the sport. Basic techniques and a solo flight are achieved in a 2-day introductory course. Afterwards, if you want to continue with the sport, it's recommended you get certified through more advanced training.

 

When selecting a school for paragliding instruction in the US, look for instructors who are certified by the United States Hang Gliding Association (USHGA). You can contact the United State Hang Gliding Association for more information about reputable schools.

 

Paragliding and hang gliding are similar, but they do have a few key differences. A hang glider is heavier and must be transported on a roof rack. A hang glider also suspends the pilot in a prone position, rather than sitting, and hang gliders fly slightly faster and can fly higher than paragliders, up to 17,500 feet (5,334m).

Parasailing and parachuting are very different from paragliding or hang gliding. A parasail does not soar freely on the wind, but is pulled behind a motorized boat, while a parachutist jumps from a plane to free-fall to the ground, as do parajumpers who jump from fixed objects like bridges, mountains or buildings.

 

 

History of Paragliding

There is no evidence to tell who was the first man to paraglide. Some suggest that it was David Barish in 1963. But, of course, that is not sure.

Photos and videos show a group of skydivers in eastern Montana in the late 70's. They were flying their parachutes off from the small hills. In the French Alps, some climbers used small ram-air canopies in order to make their descents from the peaks safer and more efficient. These parachutes weighed only eight pounds, flew at 20 m/h., and lost 3 feet height per every one foot. Soon (by the mid-eighties), a new challenge was found. Man had just found a way to prolong the distance and duration of such flights. The secret was in the areas of rising air.

Many attempts were made in order to improve parachute glide performance, for example, increasing the wingspan, using non-porous fabric, and modifying the shape and trim of the airfoil. A new design meant changes in the flight characteristics and new pilot skills and techniques were needed. Designs that appeared to be successful were produced in large numbers to meet the demands of the paraglider pilots, whose number grew drastically. And so, by 1986 the sport was well established in Europe.

Europe, Asia, and the US have developed a wide range of equipment in the last several years. Manufacturers put their products thorough number of tests to insure the pilots' safety. In the US, in the developing and marketing paragliders were involved at least three manufacturers of skydiving equipment. Their products were extremely safe and stable. But, as a disadvantage, they lacked the performance of the European designs. Fewer radical new designs emerged by the early nineties. Production was concentrated on paragliders that had very stable handling characteristics, and were suitable for the general flying population. Step by step the wings were classified in different groups, according to their usage. There were different canopies designed for student pilots, intermediate (recreational) pilots, and competition pilots. In France and Germany were established standardized procedures for testing and certifying paragliders. Now this standard represents the benchmark for all manufacturers around the world.

The development of the wings from a ram-air skydiving parachute technology, the two sports led to the developing of to kinds of sports - skydiving (parachuting) and paragliding. In fact, they become full-circle in some regards. Presently, there are several sport-jumping-canopy designs. Their wings are non-porous, elliptical shaped and with thin-profile airfoils, which allow higher speeds, better glide performance, and greater aerodynamic efficiency. These features, which were especially developed for paragliders, are now being incorporated back into skydiving parachutes. Of course, though some paragliding wings look at first sight similar to some skydiving canopies, they have very different flight characteristics that require completely different pilot technique.

 

Paragliding Equipment

 

Canopy
The upper and the lower parts of the canopy are joined by means of vertical ribs and form the cupola. During a flight the stopped air rushes through the openings of the leading edge and keeps it protuberant by the help of its static pressure. Materials of great tensile strength are used for the production of a cupola and usually these materials are polyamide or polyester, impregnated in order to be waterproof. They are sewed with suitable synthetic threads.

 

Second Parachute
In case of a breakdown small sport parachutes are used. The system consists of a cupola, lines and outer and inner containers. The cupola has an apex that softens the strike and the swinging. The lines pass from the basis to the connecting line. The connecting line joins the parachute and the clasp of the pack and it opens the canopy outside the wing. The outer container holds the inner one and the parachute and is responsible for the proper opening of the canopy. In fact, the throwing container is an inner one but it has a handle that opens the parachute.

Harness
The lines are fastened to the harness in 4 groups. There is a front harness and a back harness, which girdles the pilot's left and right.

Pack
The pack connects the pilot with the paraglider. Different designs influence not only the pilot's position and comfort, but also the flight conditions. The pilot stays in the pack erect or leaning back at a different height. The higher position gives stability, and the lower position makes the virage easier. A crossed pack means that the trapezium formed by the harness, the seat and the breast harness, is stretched by extra risers. It prevents the pilot from an overturn. Its disadvantage is in the weak reactions of the paraglider to the maneuvers.
 

Altimeter
An instrument that displays the altitude.


Variometer
An instrument that displays the rate of descent or ascent.

Windmeter
An instrument that displays the wind speed.

Windsock
A device used to show the direction of the wind and to some extent the wind speed; useful for take-offs and landings.

Preparing for a take-off

  1. 1.There are many different tracks with different lengths and conditions. There are some facts that must be checked before a take-off. The pilot has to know if:

  2. 2.The track is long enough.

  3. 3.The acceleration is opposite to the direction of the wind.

  4. 4.The land is flat enough for a safe take-off.

  5. 5.It is possible to stop the flight.

  6. 6.There are no holes that will lead to the allocation of the lines.

  7. 7.The slope of the hill is greater than the angle of flying.

  8. 8.The track is far enough from any natural or artificial obstacles (trees, rocks, building, etc.).


Wing Unfurling

  1. 1. The pack is fastened to the pilot.

  2. 2. The canopy is unfurled at the highest point of the path, in the direction of running. The cupola lies symmetrically behind the pilot in the form of an arc. Thus the parachute fills with air through its middle.

  3. 3. The harnesses are stretched, without being twisted. The locks of the lines and the brake lines are checked.

  4. 4. The lines must be divided into their rows, starting with the brake lines. The A-lines form the last row.

  5. 5. The leading edge is completely opened.

  6. 6. The pack is fastened to the risers.

  7. 7. All connections that can unfasten must be checked, including the rescue system.

  8. 8. The helm is put on. During the first attempts the harnesses around the pilot's shoulders and flanks must be fastened as well as possible in order to lighten the straight flight.


The take-off

The pilot stands straight in a starting position in the middle of the trailing edge, puts the harnesses on his elbow, the brake lines are separated from the risers and checked. The pilot takes the front risers and stretches his hands upwards positioning the stretched risers behind him. The back risers are above his shoulders. Right before the start the pilot checks all elements of the apparatus and the pack. If the flight is delayed all the check is made again.

The next step is levelling the glider - the pilot runs the first steps with his body moderately stooped. The cupola fills with air and lifts above the pilot raising his hands. He is upright again. Now he has to view the whole cupola in order to check the flying conditions. If there is something wrong, he makes the corrections with the help of the brake lines. In case the corrections appear unsuccessful, the take-off has to be stopped and the pilot directs the wing across the slope pulling the brake lines.

If the flying conditions are suitable, the pilot accelerates the cupola to the point of elevating with the help of his stooped body. He begins with even steps and constantly increases their length. The brake lines are pulled so that the cupola does get ahead of the pilot and the takeoff does not change its direction. The elevation speed is reached when the canopy lifts the pilot from the ground. Its value must be between the minimum collapse and the speed of best flying.
The last step is in the air. During the elevation the pilot's body is in an upright position. The brake lines must not be dropped! If a correction is necessary, they can be held with two hands but not earlier than the pilot is high enough.

If there is a strong wind, the reverse launch is the better choice. The difference is in the start position. The pilot faces the paraglider holding the brakes. After he fixes the cupola above his head, he follows the steps of a normal take-off. There are two types of a reverse launch: with parallel and with crossed hands.

Stall

If the slow pulling of the brakes proceeds, the stream departs from the upper part of the wing, the glider stops, the cupola is unstable and collapses with great speed. This state is called a stall.

Flying in virage

The basic technique of flying in virage is very simple. In order to go in, the pilot has to pull the brake line on the corresponding side and to go out - he follows the opposite procedure. There are many other ways of performing a virage: faster or slower, with a longer or shorter radius, evenly or precipitously. There are three kinds of virage: a virage at full speed, a slightly disturbed virage and a considerably disturbed virage.


In general, any attempt to go into virage rapidly, neglecting the chute behavior, leads to the danger of spinning. It happens when the stream departs from the wing side that is inner to the turn; all that leads to a sudden torsion round the vertical axis and rapid loss of height. The spin is to be ceased immediately by loosening the brake.

Landing
The glider is directed straight upwind. The position of the brake lines corresponds to the position of the best collapse. The height of 5m is the latest moment when the pilot must have stood in an upright position prepared to land. In this position he can soften the hit with his feet even in case of sudden and hard collapse. When the pilot is 1-2 m above the land he stops the glider carefully pulling the brake lines (forwards, along the body) until in rest. In the ideal situation this rest coincides with the first touch with the ground. The track must be freed immediately after the touchdown.

Risks at flight

First of all it must be mentioned that the paraglider does not have a solid structure so it has some peculiarities that make it different from other flying apparatuses. Secondly, as many years' experience shows, dangerous situations rarely occur during a flight, but if they do, they may confuse the pilot and may require unusual corrections. Most often the major danger is caused not by the flying situation itself but by the panic-stricken pilot, who feels helpless left to those unknown forces.

Stall
There are some facts that can show the pilot that he is heading for a stall:

  • · There are almost no noises.

  • · More height is lost than during planning.

  • · Resistance increases

There are many possible causes. Besides the pilot's mistakes, they can be changes in the weather conditions and disadvantages of the place (a too short track, many hindrances, etc.). In order to make corrections, the pilot must accelerate the wing.

Parachute effect

When the stream has departed, the apparatus gets first in a parachuting condition - the cupola is filled with air but it is too soft. It is streamed only from the inside, sometimes the wing even glides backwards. The speed of collapse is from 3 to 6 m/sec.


Releasing the brakes will eliminate the parachute effect. If it is done too fast, the cupola will launch forward.

Spin
The wing is stopped spinning by completely releasing the brakes. If the spinning persists, it must be brought to a complete stall, but if the height is not enough for performing a stall, the rescue system must be launched immediately!

All maneuvers in stall are unpredictable and extremely dangerous.

Closure
As the glider loses height in case of a closure and is out of control, in turbulent conditions it must be kept away from cliffs, walls and other obstacles. The tendency towards closure depends on the its construction and the activity of the turbulence.

Extreme elevation

In some meteorological situations the regions of rising currents can be of such a size that the pilot is not able to get out horizontally without going into the clouds. By using the maneuvers for emergency lowering, he can decrease the height even in a strong current. There is one more way of solving the problem that is called stall in the B-lines. With the brakes in his hands, the pilot catches the B-risers at the height of the locks and pulls them. The first 10-15 centimeters are against the strong action. Then the stream departs and the cupola bends slightly backwards. With the next10-15 centimeters the speed of collapse increases and the canopy moves in the direction of the pelengacy. The pilot must leave the current at about 250m above the land by releasing the B-lines.

Using the life system

  • To set the life system in operation the pilot should throw the inner container away. As soon as the connecting line is pulled stretched, it pulls out the splint from the container and frees the parachute's canopy. The process is accompanied by a hit.

  • Once the safety parachute is launched, the pilot should take the glider under control, in order to cease the swinging and the collapse. The inner risers are entirely pulled and the wing gets into a stall.

  • If the maneuver fails, the pilot stands into an upright position, ready for an emergency landing. The speed of collapse is from 3 to 7 m/sec.

Emergency landing

  • The pilot can be forced to land in some unusual conditions. For example, he can be forced to land on a tree, on water or under the effect of a strong wind.

  • If the pilot has to land on a tree, he thrusts himself upon it, making sure that the lines of the wing and the safety parachute tangle well in the branches so that he is safe from falling. After clutching the strongest branches, he must stay in his place until the rescue comes.

  • The pilot must be provided with a lifejacket in case of an emergency landing on water. The pilot lands against the wind. In the air he should loosen the harnesses round the legs. Before falling into the water, the pilot pulls the brake lines completely so the canopy will not fall over him.
