Default Paragliding ...

A paraglider is a personal aircraft with no rigid structure. The wing is made from various synthetic fabrics and designed with openings on the leading edge. These openings allow air to flow into the wing inflating it and giving it an airfoil shape. Once inflated, the wing will generate lift and allow the pilot to fly. High strength lines called risers suspend the pilot in a harness in a comfortable seated position. Learning to fly a paraglider begins on flat ground with the pilot learning to inflate and control the wing as shown.
