Method of sewing two surfaces with a cloth top and bottom wings, each connected partitions or ribs, provide the required pressure inside the wing so that it got its aerodynamic form suitable for flying. the front wings are opened to ensure filling the air during flight. The pilot sits in a comfy chair, and on the wing is connected to the system a number of rope (about 30) the total length (who knew?) 300 meters.

Modern paragliding wing span up to 13 m, the surface of 23-30 square meters (depending on the severity of the pilot) and are also used to transport passengers, when their surfaces are 'stretched' to 45 square meters. There are several types of wings. Wings for initial flight training and are very secure, then there are the wings of larger recreational opportunities for serious flying and, ultimately, competitive wings for that much needed experience in order to secure them flying and take advantage of all the opportunities they provide.

The basic equipment includes a even a helmet, spare parachute, and the instrument - variometer and GPS satellite navigation. Complete Paragliding Equipment costs about 3,000 euros. Today paragliding equipment weighs about 20 kg (wing only 6-8 kg) and fits in a bag the size of 150-180 liters capacity, which is worn like a backpack on his back.
