Paragliding is gaining momentum in the middle of 90s. Aspiration of man to fly like a bird has existed since antiquity. Now there is such a possibility thanks to a relatively new sport. This is paragliding. It was started by delta gliding pilots. They found an easy way to fly. Preparing the equipment for flying with a hang glider requires additional time. The vehicle used for the transport must be adapted to enable carrying rigid structure of the wing. These conditions drop out in soft wings. They can be carried in a backpack, which is much easier in the logistics part. So slightly and gentle paragliding slowly shifts the delta wings out. Another very important part is the existence of a little weight. To prepare to fly with a paraglider need only one person. Time to do that is around 5 minutes. At hang gliding this time is at least about 10-15 minutes, and in most cases is done by two people. This is a very big advantage, especially if you have to hit the window of time to make a start. Hang gliding has its advantages. The speeds there are much larger. Adrenaline also. Exactly because of that the way of flying is a personal choice.
