Rules to play Paragliding
Paragliding is related to the following activities Hang gliding is a close cousin, and hang glider and paraglider launches are often found in proximity to one another.Despite the considerable difference in equipment, the two activities offer similar pleasures, and some pilots are involved in both sports.Powered paragliding is the flying of paragliders with a small engine attached. Speed riding, or speed flying, is the separate sport of flying paragliders of a reduced size. These wings have increased speed, though they are not normally capable of soaring flight. The sport involves taking off on skis or on foot and swooping rapidly down in close proximity to a slope, even periodically touching it if skis are used. These smaller wings are also sometimes used where wind speeds are too high for a full sized paraglider, although this is invariably at coastal sites where the wind is laminar and not subject to as much mechanical turbulence as inland sites.
