Since then, this sport has been rapidly expanding.Thousands of people all over the world have found this sport convenient, sheer fun and a safe medium of soaring in the air. A para-glider is different from a hang-glider or a parachute in the sense that it is much lighter than a hang-glider, much easier to open up, takes little time, and the additional advantage that you do not need to jump from a helicopter or airplane to enjoy the glide in the sky. What you need is some basic training and the will to achieve success.
