The Truth about Paragliding and Hang Gliding Incidents

Wednesday, 20th September in London

This meetup was organised by Power BI Meetup Group in September 2017


The Truth about Paragliding and Hang Gliding Incidents

Free flying is exhilarating but it comes with a health warning. Ian Stuart of Altis Consulting recently published his analysis of incidents in “Skywings” – the membership magazine for the British Hang Gliding & Paragliding Association (BHPA). We looked at some hypotheses to see if we could spot any correlations. The findings surprised Altis’ resident paragliding pilot!

Young, experienced pilots flying in good weather are at a high risk of having an incident – or so it may seem. To read Ian’s article outlining how he came to this conclusion click here.

In this talk, Ian will demonstrate the Power BI visualisations that went into the article and explore the data on the fly (excuse the pun) with the audience. He will then go on to demonstrate his personal paragliding log book dashboard (again built in Power BI) and explain the potential for improving safety in the sport.
