aragliding is a competitive and recreational adventure sport, in which the participant sits in a harness, suspended from a fabricated wing. The wing comprises interconnected and naturally inflated cells that allow the paraglider to float in the sky while descending from a considerable height. Despite the absence of any kind of motor, a flight can last for hours and cover exceptionally long distances. However, most of the flights are operated for one or two hours, covering some scores of kilometres. Experienced and skilled participants can even gain height during the activity. Like any other extreme sport, it involves an element of risk, and there are a few precautions that can prevent accidents or injuries.
