The paraglider has a special handle, which is different from the ordinary handle. It originated in 1984. It is a kind of flying sport invented by a group of French pilots who love skydiving and hang gliding. It is very popular in Europe, America, Japan and other countries. There was also a whirlwind. Unlike a traditional parachute, a paraglider is a flying machine. About 20 years ago, the French mountaineer Bédon, who lives in the small town of Chamonix at the foot of the Alps, used a square parachute to successfully fly down from the Alps to the bottom of the mountain.
Many mountaineers have followed suit and further improved the parachute, combining the characteristics of the parachute and the glider to create a paraglider that takes off from the hillside terrain and can fly freely in the air. In 1984, French mountaineer Roter Fillon successfully flew out of Mont Blanc in the Alps, which made paragliding famous and quickly became popular all over the world. Today, there are hundreds of thousands of paragliders around the world. The paraglider itself has no power. The reason why it can fly is that it is controlled by the pilot and combined with various characteristics of the atmosphere (aerodynamics), except for the special shape of the parachute when it is filled with air (flying wings).
A traditional parachute, that is, a general parachute, can only generate descending resistance in the air, but no lift, while a paraglider will generate speed and lift during flight in the air, and its speed and lift are far greater than its resistance. Because in terms of structure, the inner layer of the paraglider parachute is equipped with airbags. Before it is filled with air, the paraglider has no substantial edges and corners. Once the inner layer of airbags is filled with air, edges and corners will appear at the front of the paraglider. In this way, when the paraglider is flying in the air, the opposite airflow is drawn up and down from the wing surface to flow, the resistance is parallel to the opponent's wind force, and the weight is combined with the air above the wing to make the paraglider move forward at a speed.
