Recommendation: Having regard to the following:

Outdoor adventure sports tourism, being a form of sports tourism addressed to visitors-tourists who travel to a destination for the purpose of actively participating in a sport leisure activity, paragliding in this particular case, is a fast-growing sector of the tourism industry in the Hellenic Territory.

The regulatory framework, that governs the conditions that must be met by visiting foreign paragliding pilots when engaging in paragliding in the Hellenic Territory, does not cover these new forms of sports tourism. The Paragliding Regulation applies to foreign pilots intending to stay within the Hellenic Territory for periods longer than 1 month.

For these reasons AAIASB recommends the following:

SAFETY RECOMMENDATION 2019-05: Hellenic Aeronautical & Air Sports Federation in cooperation with the Paragliding Commission should consider reviewing and revising the Paragliding Regulation to include the new forms of sports tourism and lay down the conditions that must be met by visiting foreign paragliding pilots when intending to engage in paragliding in the Hellenic Territory; further, they should examine ways by which foreign paragliding pilots intending to engage in paragliding in the Hellenic Territory are to be informed of the said requisite conditions.
