SEM_M076
Hang Gliding
In this air sport a pilot flies a light and unmotorized foot-launchable aircraft known as glider. The pilot is ensconced in a harness suspended from the airframe, and exercises control by shifting body weight in opposition to a control frame, but other devices, including modern aircraft flight control systems, may be used. In the sport's early days, pilots were restricted to gliding down small hills on low-performance hang gliders. However, modern technology gives pilots the ability to soar for hours, gain hundreds of meters of altitude (most flights remain below 1350 - 1800 meters) in thermal updrafts, perform aerobatics, and glide cross-country for long distances.
Basic equipment:
Glider, wheels for the glider, harness, which attaches you to the glider, helmet, parachute, instrument panel, which pilots call a vario, sunglasses are also recommended.
