Preparation Before Taking Off
- There are pathways with diverse lengths and conditions. There are some particulars that should be checked in prior to taking-off. The pilot has to identify if:
- The track is a longer or shorter one for safe take off.
- The speeding up is converse to the direction of the wind.
- The land should be smooth enough for a safe take-off.
- It is feasible to stop the flight on pathways easily.
- There should be no holes which will lead for the distribution of the lines.
- The incline of the mount is better than the direction of flying.
- The track should be far away or cleared from any natural or simulated blockages (trees, rocks, building, etc.)
- The pack is fixed firmly to the pilot.
- The canopy is unfurled at the top point of the trail, in the course of running. The cupola is behind the pilot in order to form of an arc. Hence the parachute gets filled with air through its middle.
- The strap up is extended, without letting it to get perverted. The tresses of the lines and the brake lines are also checked.
- The lines must be equally separated into their rows, beginning with the brake lines. The A-lines appears as the last row.
- The most important edge is absolutely kept opened.
- The pack is then fastened to the risers.
- All acquaintances that can detach must be checked, together with the rescue method.
- The helm is set on. When the pilot makes the first attempt, the harnesses in the region of the pilot's shoulders and flanks have to be fixed firmly as well as likely be in the order to ease the straight flight.
Actual Take Off
The first step is that the pilot stands in middle of the sprawling edge and then he keeps the harnesses on his elbow. The brake lines are checked everything is checked before take off and has to recheck if there is delay in take off. The next thing is leveling of the gliders and running few steps. He has to make adjustments with the cupola to check easy flying conditions, if something is wrong then he has to stop the take off and has to redirect the wings. When the take off is done then the pilot gradually increases his speed. The final step in the air is that for any adjustments to be done the pilot should do it when he is high enough and that to using his both hands. If there is strong wind then reverse launch is a better option.
When the brakes are pulled slowly then there is always a danger of collapsing at a greater speed due to instability of cupola it is called as stall. The simple technique of paragliding is flying in virage.
For landing the pilot has to be in the straight upward position. When he is just 1-2 meter above the land he pulls the brakes carefully. He can avoid any incidence by smoothly touching his feet and the track has to be cleared instantly after touching the ground.
