How to pack a paraglider for shipping?

If you want to sell a paraglider and send it via courier services, you need to pack it properly. The following guidelines and tips will help you to prepare your items for shipping and enhance security during transportation. We will also list recommendations on how to pack and send a motorized paraglider.

Pack a paraglider

If you have a paraglider for sale or want to send it to the destination for recreational activities, check these packaging tips:

  • Prepare the paraglider wing. In fact, a wing is a canvas made of nylon or synthetic fabric. You need to put it on the ground and straighten, but make sure that it does not get torn somehow. Afterwards, take lines and risers and fold them properly so that they do not get tangled.
  • Fold the paraglider. Depending on the model of your paraglider, fold it in the way it occupies little space and fits the size of the original bag.
  • Prepare the paraglide harness. Make sure that the hardness is clean. Attach a reserve parachute to it, if you have one. Check if all the straps are secured so that your paragliding harness resembles a backpack.
  • Prepare a helmet. If you need to send a helmet, you should double box it. Ideally, you should take an original box or another cardboard box of the corresponding size first, put some cushioning materials there, and place your helmet inside. Afterwards, place a smaller box into a bigger one and seal it.
  • Put your items inside the box. As items could not be sent in plastic and fabric bags only, it is necessary to put them in the box. Find cardboard boxes of the appropriate size to nest your paraglider and paraglider harness inside.
  • Seal the box. If you have either one or several boxes, you need to seal all of them carefully. Use plenty of adhesive tape for that purpose.

Pack a motorized paraglider

The construction of motorized paraglider is a bit more complicated than that of a typical paraglider. If you want to send a motorized paraglider, you should prepare and pack it properly as well.

  • Detach the parts. As a construction of the motorized paraglider is complex, you need to detach such elements as screws, blades, electronics, motors, and fuel system.
  • Drain the tank. You need to make sure that the fuel tank is empty.
  • Pack detachable elements. Take bubble wrap for covering all the detachable elements.
  • Afterwards, follow the steps above to pack a paraglider.

How to pack a hang glider?

Packing a hang glider for shipping seems to be a difficult task. However, the following guidelines will explain how to protect a hang glider and avoid any damages during transportation.

  • Disassemble a hang glider. You need to take away all the detachable parts because it will be easier to pack and ship a hang glider.
  • Prepare the wing. Fold and roll the hang glider wing into the smallest size possible. Put it into the original bag or cover with bubble wrap instead.
  • Protect aluminum tubes. Cover the leading-edge tubes, keel, crossbar, kingpost, and control bar with plenty of bubble wrap.
  • Place small items in a plastic bag. Take screws, bolts, and wires and put them in a Ziploc bag. Cover this bag with bubble wrap and secure it with adhesive tape.
  • Pack accessories. Pack hang glider harness into its bag and cover it with bubble wrap or foam wrap.
  • Prepare a helmet. If you need to send a helmet, you should double box it. Ideally, you should take an original box or another cardboard box of the corresponding size first, put some cushioning materials there, and place your helmet inside. Afterwards, place a smaller box into a bigger one and seal it.
  • Prepare electronics. If you have a variometer, tachometer, or altimeter, pack each item in bubble wrap. As these items are usually small, it is recommended to put them in a separate box of the corresponding size.
  • Put the items in the box and seal it. You can put all your items in the original case for the hang gliding kit and then in the box. Even when a hang glider is disassembled, its size may still exceed the standard parameters. Thus, you can combine several boxes, but put enough cushioning materials inside and seal them properly with adhesive tape.
