NOTES FOR THE PROSPECTIVE BUYER:

Call the person on the name and number BELOW the item you are interested in.
It is always possible to negotiate a different price than advertised on secondhand equipment. Make the seller an offer, especially if there is "o.n.o." (or nearest offer) or "neg" (negotiable) behind the price. Those letters mean that the seller is prepared to come down on the price, if necessary. Don't be ridiculous in your offer, but save yourself a couple of hundred rand. Say for example, the equipment is advertised for R5,500 o.n.o. Offer the seller R5,000 (or R4,500 if you have a lot of chutspah). The seller might agree or advise you what his minimum price is (maybe R5,200). In that case you have saved R300. Even in cases where there is no advice that the price is negotiable, it sometimes pays off to make an offer, but don't be surprised then if the offer is rejected. If it is possible, inspect the goods or get a knowledgeable person to inspect it before buying. If the seller claims that a glider is DHV-rated, make sure that it says that on the wing. An Afnor- or SHV-rated wing may be substantially different to a DHV-rated wing, even when they have the same name. Make very sure that what you are buying is suitable for YOU.

Check the SOUTH AFRICAN PARAGLIDER CLASSIFICATION SCHEDULES to see what the glider is rated. You can find them here Gliders from 1997 and before (up to 1997) or Gliders from 1998-2002 at present, but they are also available on the Aero Club website www.aeroclub.org.za under SAHPA Licensing Data.

Sometimes a person will be prepared to sell items singly, even if they are grouped together. Contact the seller and ask - if you do not ask, you may lose out!

HINT
How to choose the right size glider or reserve for YOU:
Most paraglider manufacturers include the glider weight in the all-up or take-off weight. As a rule of thumb, pilots should add at least 20 kg to their naked body weight to find the weight range in which they should be looking for a glider or reserve. A bigger pilot will have heavier kit than a light pilot. The longer you have been flying the more kit you will have, and the more likely it will be that (as a big pilot) your kit will weigh about 25 kg. If possible, weigh yourself with all the items you will wear and use when flying (sweater, flightsuit, socks, boots, helmet, gloves, vario, radio, gliderbag, glider, stuffbag, drinking water, etc - everything!) to see what your real all-up weight is. ("Clip-in" weights may exclude the glider weight, but due to translation interpretations to English, may not.)
Ideally, one would like to be in the middle to top two-thirds of any weight range, although one should not have problems being at the bottom end of the weight range. It just means that on windier days one might have to carry ballast to improve penetration. At or over the top of the weight range would possibly cause one to battle to stay up longer, and therefore have shorter flights in lighter conditions.
Hang glider pilots: Hang glider pilots should add at least 40kg to their weight to find which reserve will suit their weights best.

WARNING:
Paragliding, hang gliding and paramotoring are dangerous sports.
People without a licence must join a school to learn safely.
Paraglider and Hang Glider Pilots must have a SAHPA licence.
Paramotor pilots must have a SAHPA Licence and a PPG rating.

Insurance companies do not need to pay out if someone has an accident while flying without a licence, or without being a registered student with SAHPA, and/or not having informed the insurance company in writing of his/her participation in the sport.


Glider ratings: South African classifications are slightly different from DHV and Afnor test ratings, to accommodate overlap. To get the best information on whether a glider is suitable for your experience level, please check the latest Glider Classification Schedule on Gliders up to 1998 or Gliders from 1998-2002 and on the SAHPA home page http://www.paragliding.co.za/sahpa/gldr_class.htm

A rough guideline is:

Beginner/Basic: DHV/LTF 1, Afnor Standard, Acpuls 12 A's, EN A. Experience level 0 flights, some gliders require 20 flights or more.
Intermediate: DHV 1-2, Afnor Standard, Acpuls 12 A's, EN B. Experience level could be 0 flights while some gliders require 20 flights or more. High-end DHV/LTF 1-2 gliders require Basic Licence and 80 flights total.
Sports Class: DHV/LTF 2, some Afnor Standard gliders, Afnor Performance, EN C. Experience level is Basic Licence and 100 flights total. High-end DHV/LTF 2 gliders require Sport Licence and 250 flights total.
Serial Class: Some DHV/LTF 2, DHV/LTF 2-3, Afnor Performance, some EN C and all EN D. Experience level is Sport Licence and minimum 250 flights.
Competition: DHV 3, Afnor Competition. Experience level is Sport Licence and 400 flights.
Proto type: Unrated competition gliders or gliders being tested for manufacturers during development (Proposed Test Pilot rating). Experience level Sport Licence and minimum 500 flights which include flights on rated competition gliders (if possible).


Please note:

(1) Afnor Standard rating is EXTREMELY wide and spans from DHV/LTF 1 to low-end DHV/LTF 2.
(2) The new EN ratings (CEN) and the new LTF (DHV) ratings are similar.
(3) There are situations where the same gliders have received for example a DHV/LTF 2 and an Afnor Standard rating, or a DHV/LTF 1-2 and Afnor Performance. Pilots should remember that there might be a difference between the gliders submitted for the different tests, i.e. the DHV tested model may not be exactly the same as the Afnor tested model. Mostly, but not always, the Afnor tested glider will be perceived as being "hotter" than the DHV equivalent.
