Sky Diving in South Carolina

Paragliding is a leisure activity, considered as an extreme sport, and practiced by using an engine-free aircraft. The aircraft used in paragliding in South Carolina are extremely simple and they are often called just “wings”. A typical paraglider consists of a fabric wing and a harness.

There is no cockpit like in the “real” gliders neither a hard wing like the ones that hang gliders have. Exactly this however is one of the important reasons for the rising popularity of paragliding, Para gliders are affordable and don’t take much space. You can even put one in a large backpack, which certainly can’t be done with a glider.
When paragliding over South Carolina you are launching the aircraft by foot – usually people use hills where they run and jump to start flying.

Paragliding gives you good amount of control over the flight. Although not generally used for transportation, paragliders can serve for this purpose because one flight can continue up to several hours. Of course that depends on the weather conditions, your skills and other factors.

Skydiving is also considered as an extreme sport that involves jumping with a parachute from an airplane. Unlike paragliding, skydiving evolved from a practical activity used a lot in the military as a safety mechanism for airmen. Skydiving jumps generally continue less than paragliding flights because the jump is simply said a movement from up to down instead of horizontal flying.

The parachutes in skydiving offer less control of the flight than the paragliders do. Skydiving is often practices also as performance sport – groups of skydivers perform various figures. This is less likely in paragliding which is more a sport for pure pleasure of the individual or the tandem who flies.
