Jean-Baptiste Chandelier – Extreme Paragliding

Extreme Para-glider


Paragliding – What is It?



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 comprising a large number of interconnected baffled cells. – Wikipedia
