|Paragliding - Perspectives|
|Paragliding is a sport of contradictions. Physically, it is the least demanding of mountain sports, but it offers a sense of movement and exposure to rival alpine skiing and climbing. Paraglider pilots are an intensely social lot, yet flying itself is a solitary activity. Paragliding seems carefree at first glance, but in truth it is a judgment sport of the highest order.|
