Paragliding is a foot-launched, ram-air, airfoil canopy that flies with the energy of wind, gravity, and the pilot’s power to steer. It descends due to gravity and ascends due to air pressure. With the help of air pressure, the pilot decides when and where to fly, soar, and dive and eventually land it safely.
