From the moment of its ascent to its descent, here the parachute (paraglider) calls the shots. Compared to skydiving, the advantage of paragliding is that it has a pilot harness where the pilot can sit and enjoy the ride while maneuvering the glider with its advanced gears. With the paraglider’s technology, it encourages many daredevil flying stunts like the thermal flying where thermal air pockets are used by experienced paragliders to spiral up to the cloud base.
