It is a recent sport that emerged at the end of the 1980s and a rapid growth, is experiencing both in technological development and in number of practitioners. There are gliders for a pilot, or for rider and passenger. Both practiced for pleasure, as in commercial form (tandem flights) and sporty, with a wide variety of regional, national and international championships. History of the paraglider to find the origin of the paraglider must be traced back to the year 1965, when appeared first square parachutes or crates, fruit of space research, to find a system to make landing spacecraft. Until then the parachutes were round and hardly airships. A related site: Diamonds mentions similar findings. New square parachutes, not only contribution fall, they planned a little.

The trajectory of descent could be perfectly directed and the landing was much smoother. It was really the revolution of skydiving, to the point that since then the rounds already are used only as emergency parachute. It was in France, in 1978, in a small town in the Alps called Mieussy, where two parachutists also; Jean Claude Betemps and Gerard Bosson, conducted the first authentic flights with a square parachute, taking off from the steep slopes of Pertuisset mountain grass and landing some minutes later on the football field of Mieussy. It was there where it is considered that this sport was born and it was there where the first school was established in 1985. That same year, a Swiss named Laurent Kalbermaten, designed and manufactured the first paraglider of truth, with fabric more rigid and impermeable to air and destined exclusively to plan taking off on foot, but that did not serve to launch from an aircraft. How can I start to fly? The easiest way of experiencing free flight is as a passenger in a tandem flight. It is possible to perform this type of flight in the vast majority of the tourist sites of the Argentina, no previous preparation is necessary, and is without a doubt a shocking experience that remains stored for lifetime.
