Do you need a Licence for paragliding?

Paramotoring is an unlicensed thrill. Like paragliding and hang gliding, it is foot-launched, so you do not need a license, but you are still bound by aviation law.

How much does it cost to learn to paraglide?

A paraglider is the cheapest, simplest aircraft in the world. Prices for a complete set of gear range from $3,000-$6,000, and training for a basic license (USHPA’s P2, which qualifies a student to fly on their own, without a tandem pilot) costs around $1,000.

Is paragliding a sport?

Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing.

What is the weight limit for paragliding?

The weight limit for paragliding is determined by the paraglider itself. Most extra-large paragliders can support up to 120kg (265 pounds) of weight for a single paraglider, including pilot & equipment.

Do paragliders wear parachutes?

Yes, they do. Most paragliding harnesses will have reserve parachute connected to it or, to maximize safety whilst paragliding.

How do you paraglide?

A paraglider is often confused with a parasail, which is towed behind a boat under a vented circular parachute. Paragliding offers much more of the flying experience. Launched by running down a slope into a breeze, the pilot can gently glide down hundreds or sometimes thousands of metres to a landing zone
