Paragliding in Rio de Janeiro is a recreational wind sport that is best described as a hybrid of hang gliding and parachuting. A paraglider is free-flying, unlike the parachute used in parasailing, which is generally a passive amusement ride rather than an active sport. Paragliders are controlled by use of cords, which are held in the pilot’s hand as he or she sits in the harness. Usually, paragliders take off from the summit of hills.
