Paragliding Trip To Dangyang-si

Paragliding Dangyang-si

Paragliding is a recreational and competitive flying sport. A paraglider is a free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft . The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing. whose shape is formed by its suspension lines and the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing . Despite not having an engine, paraglider flights can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometers, though flights of 1-2 hours and covering a few tens of kilometers are more the norm. By skillful exploitation of sources of lift the pilot may gain height, often climbing to a few kilometers over the surrounding countryside. Paraglides are unique among aircraft in being easily portable. The complete equipment packs into a rucksack and can be carried on the pilot’s back, in a car or on public transport. In comparison with other air sports this substantially simplifies travel to a suitable take off spot, selection of a landing place and return travel.
