How to Fly a Powered Para Glider : Launching a Powered Paraglider

Welcome to Expert Village. My name is Hugh Murphy with Surf the Sky Paragliding. In this clip, we’re going to talk about the launch sequence.

When I first spoke with Matjaž, I said to myself: Ok, this is interesting. After a while I started thinking of ways to pull this off, where will Matjaž take off… After two or three tries we both started to understand each other’s movement in the air. I saw Matjaz’s shadow when he passed me above. On one try I saw him, as he was way in front of me. I think the majority of “work” was done by Matjaž,
