Paragliding in Turkey
Paragliding is a sport of assisted human flight. A paraglider is a motorless, inflatable wing, made of rip-stop nylon and fixed with kevlar fabric lines which secure a pilot's harness. The pilot sits in the harness and launches the vehicle by foot, running off inclines, hills or mountains. He or she steers the wing by weight shift and application of brakes that changes the shape of the rear edge of the wing.
