Paraglide - Download Wallpaper

Paragliding is a type of an Extreme Sport or adventure sport that involves the use of a specialized “vehicle” or gear – a glider aircraft with a fabric wing attached to a seat and harness. The paraglider or pilot sits on the glider aircraft, while suspended in mid air. A flight can last for 1 to 2 hours and cover some tens of kilometers depending on the pilot’s capability to control the glider.

A complete paragliding equipment is lightweight and can be packed into a rucksack. Compared with other air extreme sports, paragliding is considered to be less dangerous since the take off spot and the landing spot can be determined in advanced. Paragliding is also closely related to Hang Gliding although the two sports involve different types of equipment; and Powered Paragliding where in a motor is attached to the wing.

Nevil Hulett from South Africa currently holds the world record for Straight Distance Paragliding, having covered 502.9 kilometers in a single flight on December 14, 2008. On January 6, 1993, Robbie Whitfall set the world record for the highest altitude attained with 2526 meters in height.
