General information for Certification - Verification of Conformity - Periodic Check

Die technische Sicherheit unserer Fluggeräte gewährleistet das in vielen Bereichen z.B auch in der Automobilindustrie bewährte System "Musterprüfung - Stückprüfung - Nachprüfung".

The technical safety of our flying equipment is quaranteed by the system applied also for example in the car industry: Certification - Verification of Conformity - Periodic Check


Glider certification is carried out by a test centre at the request of the manufacturer. At this time, the test centres are: the DHV, the European Academy of parachute rigging, the Austrian Aeroclub (Öaec), the German Ultra Light Flying Association (DULV) and - currently only available for para-gliders, the German Paramotoring Association (DMSV). These test centres check that the glider conforms to either LTF airworthiness requirements, or the equivalent EN standard, depending on which standard is the current requirement in each country respectively. Proof of conformity is the examination certificate (available from the test centre).

Verification of Conformity

Once certification is completed, every manufacturer or importer must confirm that each individual paraglider sold conforms to the specifications of the certified paraglider. This comparison is called the conformity check. The proof that this test has been conducted is the signed inspection panel on the paraglider itself. The manufacturer or importer is always responsible for the proper implementation of this test; and in this case ‘responsible’ also means ‘liable’.

Periodic Inspection (Check)

All paragliders must be maintained in accordance with the provisions set out in the owner’s manual and regularly checked. This inspection will be to the same values established during certification and verified during the conformity check. The periodic inspection interval is given both in the owner’s manual and in the inspection panel on the glider. However, the inspection interval is also dependant on the manner in which the paraglider is used. Tandem paragliders used for commercial purposes must be inspected every year or after 150 flights, whichever comes first. Paragliders used solely for recreational purposes must as a rule be inspected every 24 months. It is the sole responsibility of the owner to see to it that his glider is inspected in a timely manner and any necessary maintenance carried out by suitably qualified persons in accordance with the manufacturers guidelines (set out in the owner’s manual). Inspection and service centres require official licensing, the appropriate technical and testing equipment, trained technicians and liability insurance that covers the maintenance they perform.
