Paragliding is a very popular and a trendy sport not only in Alanya, but all over the world. In order to fly high above the beautiful city and the sea, you do not have to be filled with muscles like an increddible Hulk or be someone like a superman with the stellar strength. Seriously though, Paragliding means that you glide with the paraglide, right on the wing that is made out of fabric. The word "paraglide" came out from the mixture of words "parachute" and the verb "to glide". The paraglide does not have a motor or an engine, it is the glider with the soft double-camera wing, which is inflated through the air inlets by the oncoming air flow. The lifting force is created due to the flow of air around the wing profile. Airspeed is limited only by the drag force of the wing, the sling, and the pilot himself. The stored height is spent on overcoming the resistance force. Paragliding gradually plans, that is, reduces the height. However, it does not reduce it quickly, since the lifting force of an ascending air flows is being used.
