Paragliding is the closest one can feel about flying. The take-off slope is divided into 3 stages - The First, Second & Third Bump. One gets a chance to do ground handling for 2 days and then fly from the Bumps. The Bumps are in a hierarchy and gives one longer air time as one proceeds.
Day - 1 - Familiarization with the equipment, inflation technique and ground run. Practice ground runs and hopping techniques.
Day - 2 - Alpine launch (take off techniques).
Day - 3 - Supervised solo flight including practice turns.
Day - 4 - Practice spot landing and solo flight.
What is paragliding
A paraglider is a mixture of parachute and hangglider (delta). The shoot is made of a rectangular peace of rip stop nylon which is specially coated with polyurethane to avoid porosity. The shape is attached to a reed by lines. The canopy is constructed of a top and a bottom surface joined by a number of vertical segments, resulting in chambers known as "the cells". The opening at the front is called the leading edge. After inflation the canopy takes up an airfoil shape with a fattish lower surface and a curved top. The rear edge of the wing is called the trailing edge. The lines are made of very strong Kevlar and are usually encased in an outer sheath of nylon. The risers connect the canopy lines to the reed. The trailing edge is connected by risers called control lines and constitute the most important part of the glider. The control risers let the pilot maneuver the paraglider.
