Default About hang-gliding ....

A hang glider is a personal aircraft consisting of an aluminum frame supported by wires, a nylon sail, and a harness for the pilot. There are many variations of this basic design. The sails are usually supported by batons. When flying, the pilot is suspended below the sail within a triangular frame known as the control bar. The pilot controls the pitch and yaw of the craft by shifting their weight with the help of the control bar.





When not in use, the hang glider can be easily disassembled and stored or transported.
