Hang gliding is a recreational and competitive flying sport that involves launching a pilot and a glider called a hang glider from a hill or cliff, using an upward moving air current. Hang gliders are foot-launched aircraft, relying on the pilot's weight to control their flight. They are relatively simple to learn to fly, but can be challenging to master. Hang gliding is a popular sport all over the world, and there are many different places to fly. Some popular hang gliding destinations include the mountains of California, the beaches of Florida, and the deserts of Arizona. A custom cursor with Hang Gliding sport.
