Unlike other gliders a paraglide is a lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing. Wing shape is maintained by the suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing, and the force of air flowing around the wing.
All the equipment fits in a backpack weighing anywhere from 25-50 pounds depending on the equipment choices. Everything you need to fly fits in your backpack, which you can check onto a plane or put in the trunk of your car as you travel
