Airworthiness status for hang gliders and paragliders
All advertisements displayed above for the sale of new or used hang gliders and paragliders should carry one of the three following clearly legible statements or no statement at all:
Hang gliders: BHPA, DHV, or HGMA Certification (depending on the certification authority) - In this case each model and size of glider advertised must have this certification.
Paragliders: DHV/EN/LTF/SHV Certification - The glider offered for sale has this certification and carries a verification label to that effect. The certification classification must be stated, e.g: EN A, Standard, LTF 1/2, etc.
Registered: The glider has been previously registered under the BHPA Airworthiness Scheme and carries a verification label to that effect. A new owner must apply to re-register it with the BHPA office.
NB. If no statement is displayed, it's implicit that no certification exists or no certification status information has been supplied for that particular glider or wing.
