What Is Paragliding?
Air sports pioneers tested the use of parachute jumps over cliffs in 1980. Lightweight parachutes were developed as a result to stay in the air for longer. The sport of paragliding gained popularity in the years that followed. You can spend hours in the air when paragliding, which is similar to free parachuting. This parachute is made up of four main components: the wing, ropes, columns, and harness. The air-filled parachute is kept aloft by the wing. The passengers in the parachute are transported by ropes. The harness refers to the area where the pilot sits. It is made out of columns, shoulder straps, and a seat. Depending on the body type or flight circumstances, the wings and harness may be altered.
