One of the greatest desires of mankind is to fly like a bird, just as freely, while exploring the edges of the sky. This desire is not satisfied by helicopters or airplane flights, because they do not give the freedom to fly. Paragliding is a fairly new movement that gives a person a sense of freedom in flight and satisfies almost all of his needs in the desire to feel like a bird! This is an amazing sport that allows you to control the flight by gliding in the sky. In fine, clear weather, this device allows you to stay in the air for more than three hours and take off to a height of more than 3,000 meters. I suggest you make a virtual flight, and then, perhaps, you will have a desire to feel it live!
The pilot sits in a special seat, enclosed in seat belts, and a huge canvas of special fabric flutters above him. The shapes of the fabric are not chosen in vain, thanks to its shape you can enjoy a long flight. Many go in for paragliding for fun and satisfy their desires, and many for the sake of sports, trying to set records in this amazing sport!
The main element of this device is a wing or canopy. The special design allows air to pass through the vents and inflate the canopy. The wing with the help of air pressure and wind currents allows you to fly high into the sky.
Of course, for a successful flight you also need other equipment, such as a large backpack, a variometer in order to monitor atmospheric pressure, a radio in order to be able to contact other paragliders or members of your team and a GPS locator to monitor flight, as well as find team members in case they need help
The seat belt is one of the most important pieces of equipment in this sport. Before you decide to take off, you need to carefully check it for strength
Without a doubt, paragliding is very exciting, but remember about safety!!! You must be very careful and very careful with your equipment, check it for damage after a long period of storage and service it if necessary.
