(Redirected from Paraglider Jump to: navigation search Paragliding is a recreational and competitive flying sport. A paraglider is a free-flying, foot-launched aircraft . The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing, whose shape is formed by the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing.

    Land-based practice: Catching a wind. Parafoil fully up in land-based practice. Paragliding in Swiss mountains The paraglider wing or canopy is known in aeronautical engineering as a ram-air airfoil, or parafoil . Such wings are comprised of two layers of fabric which are connected to internal supporting material in such a way as to form a row of cells. By leaving most of the cells open only at the leading edge, incoming air (ram-air pressure) keeps the wing inflated, thus maintaining its shape. When inflated, the wing's cross-section has the typical teardrop aerofoil shape.

...the Power to FLY!
Paramotoring is enjoying a surge of popularity in America, and for good reason - it's an aircraft that literally fits into the trunk of your car! In less than 15 minutes, a pilot can set up for a remarkable new form of flight. Click HERE for a short video of a fly-over! Combine the simple elegance of a modern paraglider with one of the backpack paramotor units and you have the ability to fly when you want and where you want (with consideration for the weather). The Power Pack The motor that powers us to dizzying heights is nothing short of remarkable. These lightweight engines have an incredible power to weight ratio, start easily and are fitted onto a backpack that you can easily walk around with. With one of these motor units, the propeller gives you thrust, allowing you to launch, climb, fly level or glide down through the air on a paraglider at your own will.
