Rules to play paragliding

Paragliding
1. 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. Wing shape is maintained by the suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing, and the aerodynamic forces of the air flowing over the outside.

Despite not using an engine, paraglider flights can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometers, though flights of one to two hours and covering some tens of kilometers are more the norm. By skilful exploitation of sources of lift, the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand meters. .....

Related activities
2. Paragliding is related to the following activities Hang gliding is a close cousin, and hang glider and paraglider launches are often found in proximity to one another.Despite the considerable difference in equipment, the two activities offer similar pleasures, and some pilots are involved in both sports.Powered paragliding is the flying of paragliders with a small engine attached. Speed riding, or speed flying, is the separate sport of flying paragliders of a reduced size. These wings have increased speed, though they are not normally capable of soaring flight. The sport involves taking off on skis or on foot and swooping rapidly down in close proximity to a slope, even periodically touching it if skis are used. These smaller wings are also sometimes used where wind speeds are too high for a full sized paraglider, although this is invariably at coastal sites where the wind is laminar and not subject to as much mechanical turbulence as inland sites.

Takeoff from a ramp, Tegelberg, Schwangau, Germany Tandem Paragliding at Solang Valley, Manali, Himachal Pradesh, India Paragliding over Jounieh Bay, Lebanon Paragliding can be of local importance as a commercial activity.[3][4] Paid accompanied tandem flights are available in many mountainous regions, both in the winter and in the summer. In addition, there are many schools offering courses and guides who lead groups of more experienced pilots exploring an area. Finally, there are the manufacturers and the associated repair and after sales services. Paraglider like wings also find other uses, for example, in ship propulsion and wind energy exploitation, and are related to some forms of power kite. Kite skiing uses equipment similar to paragliding sails. .....

Wing
3. The paraglider wing or canopy is usually what is known in aeronautical engineering as a ram air airfoil. Such wings comprise two layers of fabric that are connected to internal supporting material in such a way as to form a row of cells. By leaving most of the cells open only at the leading edge, incoming air keeps the wing inflated, thus maintaining its shape. When inflated, the wings cross section has the typical teardrop aerofoil shape. Modern paraglider wings are made of high performance non porous materials such as ripstop polyester or nylon fabric.In some modern paragliders from the 1990s onwards, especially higher performance wings, some of the cells of the leading edge are closed to form a cleaner aerodynamic profile. Holes in the internal ribs allow a free flow of air from the open cells to these closed cells to inflate them, and also to the wingtips, which are also closed. .....
Harness
4. The pilot is loosely and comfortably buckled into a harness, which offers support in both the standing and sitting positions. Most harnesses have foam or airbag protectors underneath the seat and behind the back to reduce the impact on failed launches or landings. Modern harnesses are designed to be as comfortable as a lounge chair in the sitting position. Many harnesses even have an adjustable lumbar support. A reserve parachute is also typically connected to a paragliding harness. .....
Variometer
5. The main purpose of a variometer is in helping a pilot find and stay in the core of a thermal to maximise height gain and, conversely, to indicate when a pilot is in sinking air and needs to find rising air. Humans can sense the acceleration when they first hit a thermal, but cannot detect the difference between constant rising air and constant sinking air. Modern variometers are capable of detecting rates of climb or sink of 1 cm per second. A variometer indicates climb rate or sink rate with short audio signals beeps, which increase in pitch and tempo during ascent, and a droning sound, which gets deeper as the rate of descent increases and or a visual display. It also shows altitude either above takeoff, above sea level, or at higher altitudes flight level. .....
Radio
6. Radio communications are used in training, to communicate with other pilots, and to report where and when they intend to land. These radios normally operate on a range of frequencies in different countries some authorised,some illegal but tolerated locally. Some local authorities e.g., flight clubs offer periodic automated weather updates on these frequencies. In rare cases, pilots use radios to talk to airport control towers or air traffic controllers. Many pilots carry a cell phone so they can call for pickup should they land away from their intended point of destination. .....
Gps
7. GPS global positioning system is a necessary accessory when flying competitions, where it has to be demonstrated that way points have been correctly passed. The recorded GPS track of a flight can be used to analyze flying technique or can be shared with other pilots. GPS is also used to determine drift due to the prevailing wind when flying at altitude, providing position information to allow restricted airspace to be avoided and identifying ones location for retrieval teams after landing out in unfamiliar territory. GPS is integrated with some models of variometer. This is not only more convenient, but also allows for a three dimensional record of the flight. The flight track can be used as proof for record claims, replacing the old method of photo documentation. .....
Brakes
8. Controls held in each of the pilots hands connect to the trailing edge of the left and right sides of the wing. These controls are called brakes and provide the primary and most general means of control in a paraglider. The brakes are used to adjust speed, to steer in addition to weight shift, and to flare during landing. .....
Weight shift
9. In addition to manipulating the brakes, a paraglider pilot must also lean in order to steer properly. Such weight shifting can also be used for more limited steering when brake use is unavailable, such as when under big ears see below. More advanced control techniques may also involve weight shifting. .....
Speed bar
10. A kind of foot control called the speed bar also accelerator attaches to the paragliding harness and connects to the leading edge of the paraglider wing, usually through a system of at least two pulleys see animation in margin. This control is used to increase speed and does so by decreasing the wings angle of attack. This control is necessary because the brakes can only slow the wing from what is called trim speed no brakes applied. The accelerator is needed to go faster than this.More advanced means of control can be obtained by manipulating the paragliders risers or lines directly. Most commonly, the lines connecting to the outermost points of the wings leading edge can be used to induce the wingtips to fold under. The technique, known as big ears, is used to increase rate of descent see picture and the full description below. The risers connecting to the rear of the wing can also be manipulated for steering if the brakes have been severed or are otherwise unavailable. For ground handling purposes, a direct manipulation of these lines can be more effective and offer more control than the brakes. The effect of sudden wind blasts can be countered by directly pulling on the risers and making the wing unflyable, thereby avoiding falls or unintentional takeoffs. .....
Fast descents
11. Problems with getting down can occur when the lift situation is very good or when the weather changes unexpectedly. There are three possibilities of rapidly reducing altitude in such situations, each of which has benefits and issues to be aware of. The big ears maneuver induces descent rates of 2.5 to 3.5 m s, 4 6 m s with additional speed bar. It is the most controllable of the techniques and the easiest for beginners to learn. The A B line stall induces descent rates of 6 10 m s. It increases loading on parts of the wing the pilots weight is mostly on the B lines, instead of spread across all the lines. Finally, a spiral dive offers the fastest rate of descent, at 7 25 m s. It places greater loads on the wing than other techniques do and requires the highest level of skill from the pilot to execute safely. .....
Big ears
12. Pulling on the outer A lines during non accelerated, normal flight folds the wing tips inwards, which substantially reduces the glide angle with only a small decrease in forward speed. As the effective wing area is reduced, the wing loading is increased, and it becomes more stable. However, the angle of attack is increased, and the craft is closer to stall speed, but this can be ameliorated by applying the speed bar, which also increases the descent rate. When the lines are released, the wing re inflates. If necessary, a short pumping on the breaks helps reentering normal flight. Compared to the other techniques, with big ears, the wing still glides forward, which enables the pilot to leave an area of danger. Even landing this way is possible, e.g., if the pilot has to counter an updraft on a slope. .....
B line stall
13. In a B line stall, the second set of risers from the leading edge front the B lines are pulled down independently of the other risers, with the specific lines used to initiate a stall. This puts a spanwise crease in the wing, thereby separating the airflow from the upper surface of the wing. It dramatically reduces the lift produced by the canopy and thus induces a higher rate of descent. This can be a strenuous maneuver, because these B lines have to be held in this position, and the tension of the wing puts an upwards force on these lines. The release of these lines has to be handled carefully not to provoke a too fast forward shooting of the wing, which the pilot then could fall into. .....
Spiral dive
14. The spiral dive is the most rapid form of controlled fast descent; an aggressive spiral dive can achieve a sink rate of 25 m s. This maneuver halts forward progress and brings the flier almost straight down. The pilot pulls the brakes on one side and shifts his weight onto that side to induce a sharp turn. The flight path then begins to resembles a corkscrew. After a specific downward speed is reached, the wing points directly to the ground. When the pilot reaches his desired height, he ends this maneuver by slowly releasing the inner break, shifting his weight to the outer side and braking on this side. The release of the inner brake has to be handled carefully to end the spiral dive gently in a few turns. If done too fast, the wing translates the turning into a dangerous upward and pendular motion. Spiral dives put a strong G force on the wing and glider and must be done carefully and skilfully. The G forces involved can induce blackouts, and the rotation can produce disorientation. Some high end gliders have what is called a stable spiral problem.[24] After inducing a spiral and without further pilot input, some wings do not automatically return to normal flight and stay inside their spiral. Serious injury and fatal accidents did occur when pilots could not exit this maneuver and spiraled into the ground. .....
Launching
15. As with all aircraft, launching and landing are done into wind. The wing is placed into an airstream, either by running or being pulled, or an existing wind. The wing moves up over the pilot into a position in which it can carry the passenger. The pilot is then lifted from the ground and, after a safety period, can sit down into his harness. Unlike skydivers, paragliders, like hang gliders, do not jump at any time during this process. There are two launching techniques used on higher ground and one assisted launch technique used in flatland areas. .....
Forward launch
16. In low winds, the wing is inflated with a forward launch, where the pilot runs forward with the wing behind so that the air pressure generated by the forward movement inflates the wing.It is often easier, because the pilot only has to run forward, but the pilot cannot see his wing until it is above him, where he has to check it in a very short time for correct inflation and untangled lines before the launch. .....
Reverse launch
17. In higher winds, a reverse launch is used, with the pilot facing the wing to bring it up into a flying position, then turning around under the wing and running to complete the launch.Reverse launches have a number of advantages over a forward launch. It is more straightforward to inspect the wing and check if the lines are free as it leaves the ground. In the presence of wind, the pilot can be tugged toward the wing, and facing the wing makes it easier to resist this force and safer in case the pilot slips as opposed to being dragged backwards. However, the movement pattern is more complex than forward launch, and the pilot has to hold the brakes in a correct way and turn to the correct side so he does not tangle the lines. These launches are normally attempted with a reasonable wind speed, making the ground speed required to pressurise the wing much lower the pilot is initially launching while walking forwards as opposed to running backward. .....
Towed launch
18. In flatter countryside, pilots can also be launched with a tow. Once at full height towing can launch pilots up to 3000 feet altitude, the pilot pulls a release cord, and the towline falls away. This requires separate training, as flying on a winch has quite different characteristics from free flying. There are two major ways to tow pay in and pay out towing. Pay in towing involves a stationary winch that winds in the towline and thereby pulls the pilot in the air. The distance between winch and pilot at the start is around 500 meters or more. Pay out towing involves a moving object, like a car or a boat, that pays out line slower than the speed of the object, thereby pulling the pilot up in the air. In both cases, it is very important to have a gauge indicating line tension to avoid pulling the pilot out of the air. Another form of towing is static line towing. This involves a moving object, like a car or a boat, attached to a paraglider or hang glider with a fixed length line. This can very dangerous, because now the forces on the line have to be controlled by the moving object itself, which is almost impossible to do, unless stretchy rope and a pressure tension meter dynamometer is used. Static line towing with stretchy rope and a load cell as a tension meter has been used in Poland, Ukraine, Russia, and other Eastern European countries for over twenty years under the name Malinka with about the same safety record as other forms of towing. .....
Landing
19. Landing a paraglider, as with all unpowered aircraft which cannot abort a landing, involves some specific techniques and traffic patterns. .....
Traffic pattern
20. Unlike during launch, where coordination between multiple pilots is straightforward, landing involves more planning, because more than one pilot might have to land at the same time. Therefore a specific traffic pattern has been established. Pilots line up into a position above the airfield and to the side of the landing area, which is dependent on the wind direction, where they can lose height if necessary by flying circles. From this position, they follow the legs of a flightpath in a rectangular pattern to the landing zone downwind leg, base leg, and final approach. This allows for synchronization between multiple pilots and reduces the risk of collisions, because a pilot can anticipate what other pilots around him are going to do next. .....
Techniques
21. Landing involves lining up for an approach into wind and, just before touching down, flaring the wing to minimise vertical and or horizontal speed. This consists of gently going from 0% brake at around two meters to 100% brake when touching down on the ground. In light winds, some minor running is common. In moderate to medium headwinds, the landings can be without forward speed, or even going backwards with respect to the ground in strong winds, but this would usually mean that the conditions were too strong for that glider.

Additionally, at around four meters before touching ground, some momentary braking 50% for around two seconds can be applied then released, thus using forward pendular momentum to gain speed for flaring more effectively and approaching the ground with minimal vertical speed. For strong winds during landing, two techniques are common the first, flapping the wing to make it lose performance and thus descend faster by alternatively braking and releasing around once per second though the danger of inducing a stall during this manoeuvre makes it an experts only technique, and the second, collapsing the wing immediately after touchdown to avoid being dragged, by either braking at maximum or quickly turning around and pulling down the D risers the last set of risers from the leading edge. .....

Soaring
22. Soaring flight is achieved by utilizing wind directed upwards by a fixed object such as a dune or ridge. In slope soaring, pilots fly along the length of a slope feature in the landscape, relying on the lift provided by the air, which is forced up as it passes over the slope. Slope soaring is highly dependent on a steady wind within a defined range the suitable range depends on the performance of the wing and the skill of the pilot. Too little wind, and insufficient lift is available to stay airborne pilots end up scratching along the slope. With more wind, gliders can fly well above and forward of the slope, but too much wind, and there is a risk of being blown back over the slope. A particular form of ridge soaring is condo soaring, where pilots soar a row of buildings that form an artificial ridge. This form of soaring is particularly used in flat lands where there are no natural ridges, but there are plenty of man made, building ridges. .....
Thermal flying
23. When the sun warms the ground, it will warm some features more than others such as rock faces or large buildings, and these set off thermals which rise through the air. Sometimes these may be a simple rising column of air; more often, they are blown sideways in the wind and will break off from the source, with a new thermal forming later.

Once a pilot finds a thermal, he or she begins to fly in a circle, trying to center the circle on the strongest part of the thermal the core, where the air is rising the fastest. Most pilots use a vario altimeter vario, which indicates climb rate with beeps and or a visual display, to help core in on a thermal.Often there is strong sink surrounding thermals, and there is also strong turbulence resulting in wing collapses as a pilot tries to enter a strong thermal. Good thermal flying is a skill that takes time to learn, but a good pilot can often core a thermal all the way to cloud base. .....

Cross country flying
24. Once the skills of using thermals to gain altitude have been mastered, pilots can glide from one thermal to the next to go cross country. Having gained altitude in a thermal, a pilot glides down to the next available thermal.Potential thermals can be identified by land features that typically generate thermals or by cumulus clouds, which mark the top of a rising column of warm, humid air as it reaches the dew point and condenses to form a cloud.In many flying areas, cross country pilots also need an intimate familiarity with air law, flying regulations, aviation maps indicating restricted airspace, etc. .....
In flight wing deflation
25. Since the shape of the wing airfoil is formed by the moving air entering and inflating the wing, in turbulent air, part or all of the wing can deflate collapse. Piloting techniques referred to as active flying will greatly reduce the frequency and severity of deflations or collapses. On modern recreational wings, such deflations will normally recover without pilot intervention. In the event of a severe deflation, correct pilot input will speed recovery from a deflation, but incorrect pilot input may slow the return of the glider to normal flight, so pilot training and practice in correct response to deflations is necessary.

For the rare occasions when it is not possible to recover from a deflation or from other threatening situations such as a spin, most pilots carry a reserve rescue, emergency parachute; however, most pilots never have cause to throw their reserve. Should a wing deflation occur at low altitude, i.e., shortly after takeoff or just before landing, the wing paraglider may not recover its correct structure rapidly enough to prevent an accident, with the pilot often not having enough altitude remaining to deploy a reserve parachute [with the minimum altitude for this being approximately 60 m 200 ft, but typical deployment to stabilization periods using up 120 180 m 400 600 ft of altitude] successfully. Different packing methods of the reserve parachute affect its deploying time.

Low altitude wing failure can result in serious injury or death due to the subsequent velocity of a ground impact where, paradoxically, a higher altitude failure may allow more time to regain some degree of control in the descent rate and, critically, deploy the reserve if needed. In flight wing deflation and other hazards are minimized by flying a suitable glider and choosing appropriate weather conditions and locations for the pilots skill and experience level. .....

Safety
26. Paragliding, like any extreme sport, is a potentially dangerous activity. In the United States, for example, in 2010 the last year for which details are available, one paraglider pilot died. This is an equivalent rate of two in 10,000 pilots. Over the years 1994 2010, an average of seven in every 10,000 active paraglider pilots have been fatally injured, though with a marked improvement in recent years. In France with over 25,000 registered fliers, two of every 10,000 pilots were fatally injured in 2011 a rate that is not atypical of the years 2007 2011, although around six of every 1,000 pilots were seriously injured more than two day hospital stay.The potential for injury can be significantly reduced by training and risk management. The use of proper equipment such as a wing designed for the pilots size and skill level, as well as a helmet, a reserve parachute, and a cushioned harness also minimize risk. The pilots safety is influenced by his understanding of the site conditions such as air turbulence rotors, strong thermals, gusty wind, and ground obstacles such as power lines. Sufficient pilot training in wing control and emergency manoeuvres from competent instructors can minimize accidents. Many paragliding accidents are the result of a combination of pilot error and poor flying conditions. .....
Learning to fly
27. Most popular paragliding regions have a number of schools, generally registered with and or organized by national associations. Certification systems vary widely between countries, though around 10 days instruction to basic certification is standard. andem Paragliding at Painan, Indonesia There are several key components to a paragliding pilot certification instruction program. Initial training for beginning pilots usually begins with some amount of ground school to discuss the basics, including elementary theories of flight as well as basic structure and operation of the paraglider. Students then learn how to control the glider on the ground, practicing take offs and controlling the wing overhead. Low, gentle hills are next where students get their first short flights, flying at very low altitudes, to get used to the handling of the wing over varied terrain. Special winches can be used to tow the glider to low altitude in areas that have no hills readily available. .....
Take Off into the Wind
28. This is fairly obvious for most situation. It is common sense. In a very light tail wind less than 2 or 3 MPH, it is possible to take off from a mountain launch in a Paraglider, but you need to have excellent running ability. If you attempt to take off in such conditions, you should make sure that the wind is not subdued because of blockage from Trees or obstructions. This means going to the upwind side of the Mountain or hill and confirming that the wind is truely light. For the most part, taking off in a tailwind is a bad idea. .....
Do Reversing Turns Away from the Ridge
29. Because of the tail wind and resultant high ground speed toward the cliff, doing a reversing turn downwind toward a cliff is a bad idea. Not only does it require more distance from the cliff or hill, but it is against standard protocol. Doing so can confuse other pilots. If one starts a turn this way without enough distance from the cliff, there is no exit and a crash may ensue. .....
Give Way to the Right
30. Like on the road, in a car, pass on the right side. In ridge soaring, it is said, The glider with their right wing toward the hill has the Right of Way. This means that the glider with the ridge on their left, gives way to the right meaning, that glider moves to the right to allow the other glider the right of way. .....
Hermal in the Same Direction
31. When entering a thermal, turn in the same direction as other pilots already in the thermal. All pilots in a thermal should be circling in the same direction. It is easy to watch other gliders circling in the same direction, but dangerous if there are gliders circling in oposite directions. If I am ever in a thermal and see any glider other than myself circling in the oposite direction, unless there are only two gliders, I will leave the thermal. If I notice another glider circling in the thermal and we are the only two in the thermal. I will switch directions to match the other gliders direction. .....
