A Paraglider pilot sits in a harness below a fabric wing that holds its shape through suspension lines and air pressure.
A Hang Glider pilot is suspended in a harness below a rigid wing which is usually an aluminium frame covered in a synthetic sail cloth.
Powered Paraglider or Paramotor pilots wear a motor on their back which provides enough thrust to take off with a Paragliding wing, specifically designed for motored operations.
Microlight & Powered Hang Gliding
Microlight trike pilots sit in a propeller-driven trike, suspended below a wing similar to a Hang Glider. Powered Hang Gliders have a small engine contained within the harness allowing launch from flat ground.
