1. Paragliding and its basic equipment

 What is paraglider?
It is a device that can fly at the speed of 20-45Km/h on the ascending current without any power system. It was created with the combination of hang gliding’s L/D ratio and a parachute’s safety.

It is a device that is connected to the canopy to secure and attach a pilot to the paraglider. A shock-absorbing device or backbone protector is built in the harness to protect a pilot’s body. A pilot’s necessities, such as a container bag and a parachute, can be loaded onto it.
