This is the easiest and lightest free flight at the moment, designed to take off using the push of the pilot’s legs. For flying only the energy of the wind and the force of gravity is used. Paragliding is a sport without motor and this is why it is not possible to take off from a plain, as can be seen it’s necessary to jump from a height. But the thrill of flying compensates all the initial fears. It’s possible to do it in tandem by double-paragliding with a skilled instructor.
