aragliding is a recreational and competitive sport in which a pilot flies a lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft called a paraglider. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing, using the wind and thermals to stay aloft and control their flight path.
The sport can be enjoyed in a variety of settings, including coastal cliffs, mountains, and even flatlands. Pilots often fly for hours at a time, soaring above the landscape and enjoying the freedom and exhilaration of flight. There are also competitive events, including races and acrobatic competitions.
