paraglider is a gliding kite system and
In brevity, writers and talkers focus on the
wing as "paraglider" without pausing to rehearse that their focus
is on the wing part of the paraglider. Sellers of sport
"wings" often sell "paragliders" without really selling
the complete paraglider, as what they are selling is just the wing part and
tether-set part, leaving the buyer of the wing to provide the the third part:
the mass that will make the object complete as a gliding system. Some sellers
one day may sell the wing separate from the tether set while leaving the user
to provide separately the tether set to fit purpose.
In the sport of paragliding, the pilot becomes part of the resistive set or anchor; he or she first ground kites, then walk kites or sometimes run kites, and then kite glides; in glide the paraglider is a gliding kite system The rich history of kites provide a garden for designers; they may take any kite system and explore just how well the system does when the anchor is let to fall freely through the air.

Ladder paraglider is
a gliding ladder kite
[[[ There is a firm source of some sectors of
contemporary confusion. The superset is hang gliders; all paragliders form a
proper subset within the superset of hang gliders. So, it is improper just to
set a "comparison" as no amount of fudging will make a paraglider
be not a hang glider; paragliders are string-only-to-payload gliding wings
which wings may be limp or with very much stiffening even with sticks and
rigid wings; the system glides through an atmosphere. One cannot make a
paraglider stop being a hang glider; but there are some hang gliders that are
not paragliders. Without carefully sorting this matter, there will ever be
confusion. Woglom in 1800s book brought in strongly "para-" in
"parakites". Let the anchor move, which is mechanically done even
on the ground, but move in free-falling brings on a the gliding form of
parakites to be called paragliders; NASA picked up on such terms and did
leadership that stuck in patent systems to this day; the paraglider may have
metal booms, stiffened inflated booms, battens, even rigid-plate wings; but
the string support of payload---that anchors during the glide is part of the
sorting key in this matter. The recent faction of sport users do have paragliders,
but that faction errs by thinking that they have the only paragliders that
exist; no, paragliders have existed and still exist outside of their faction.
In the hang glider world (holds paragliders as a proper subset) there are
hang gliders that are not paragliders, e.g. the hang gliders where no tether
line is used during the gliding, that is, the pilot enters the rigid airframe
after taking off. Differently the hang gliders that have a main set of
tethers to hold the suspended pilot during glide are the type of hang glider
that is a paraglider; hang gliding holds non-paragliders and paragliders; all
paragliders are hang gliders; these things apply whether the suspended
payload is a living human or a dead rock. The FAI is a private org that
handles a faction of activity; its definitions supply its factions and
interests, but such does not rule the aviation and engineering culture or the
mechanical facts about aircraft function; their definitions and classes are
for their private noteworthy use; one can note "FAI defines ___"
but that does not force matters on all the other users of devices. So, e.g.,
there are three sorts of Rogallo Wing hang gliders: 1. rigid wing with pilot
during glide playing himself into the airframe,2. airframed paraglider where
the pilot as payload is suspended by a kiteline set while grabing the
airframe to control it; 3. a limp-canopy paraglider (perhaps with stiffening
all the to very airframed or even fully rigid--but where the payload or pilot
is suspended without being able to grab the canopy above in a rigid coupling.
So, the article on paragliding will ever have a challenge until it sorts out
the mechanical basis of its subject. [[User:Joefaust|Joefaust]] ([[User
talk:Joefaust|talk]]) 09:05, 2 October 2011 (UTC)]]]
First uses of the term applied to a wide-spectrum of gliders
including those with structural beams. Such remains the case today, but not
in all user factions. One user faction: the sport of "paragliding"
hardly respects airframed paragliders while that sport's literature holds a
paraglider as a string-controlled limp canopy kite system.

Paragliding is the launching,
flying, and landing of gliding kite systems; the mission of paragliding may
include humans onboard or not onboard; paragliding may be done for peace or
war, for commerce or play, for model testing or for gliding oneself in sport
and recreation. Paragliding is the flying of a paraglider at any size and
with any payload for any purpose. Model builders do model paragliding via
radio control or just passive gliding of unmanned paragliders. UAV industrial

· Paragliding fatalities and injurious incidents
Data collectors: Ref1 Ref 2 Ref3 Ref4
Ref5 Data arrives from site
reporters, victim families, participants, observers, public agencies, police
reports, newspaper reporters, club newsletters, forum notes,
Analysis of raw data: Various
levels of analysis of the fatalities and injurious incidents occur by
analysts, researchers, organizational representatives, authors, participants,
accident committees, etc. The quality of accident analysis varies widely from
poor to high. Branching what is in focus in an analysis matters; looking at
incidents in non-sport (industry, military, commerce) paragliding is
sometimes set in focus. Sport paragliding is frequently studied in two large
branches: 1. the airframed paraglider (segment of hang gliders) , and 2.
the non-airframed paraglider (proper subset of hang gliders) popular in sport
paragliding. Further branching of study is found: the non-paraglider hang glider that has not even one
tether in the tether set (thus empty tether set) like the Otto
Lilienthal gliders, the Swift, the Batso, the VJ-23, etc., may be studied in
itself as to fatalities and injurious incidents, the most famous of which is
the 2000th flight of Otto Lilienthal himself when the crash resulted in his
death. Then a branch of accident analysis often in focus is the paraglider
that has an airframe and the tethered pilot has the option to directly couple
with the airframe for controlling the flight of the glide (like the Falcon
3 hang glider or Seed Wing's
Sensor710 hang glider which are
airframed paragliders that has
such a short tether set that permits the pilot able to grab the
airframe for control purposes).

rescue parachutes when windfield helicities or turbulence and perhaps pilot
inputs have the limp-canopy paraglider in a form (severe cravatting,
collapse, gift-wrap, compound folding, etc.) that is no longer flying well
enough to halt a severe falling; such results in severe injuries and death.
Just how often such no-recourse arrangement is reached in paragliding is a
matter under grave study.

paragliding, para-motoring, free-flight powered kiting. This may be done with
humans aboard or not. Scales from tiny to huge. This is a
powered kite system where the anchor or resistive set is with a motorized fan
to propel the anchor while the tethered wing kites and gives lift to all
components of the system.
PPN Precision Profile Nose (PPN) System
is a gliding-kite (paragliding) term used in the gliding kites for
speedgliding. Precision leading edge. PPNplus.

Pull a cord to rotate to drive the generator; let sprag and spring return to
start; repeat to drive generator again. Such device may be used
in some AWES. Human-powered generators for cousins to this
matter. Cord may be pulled by human muscle or by fall of mass in
a machine, a kite pulling the line, etc. Think of regenerative
systems also. Turn the generator shaft by pulling a cable or
cord! Old tech; public domain.

· pumping cycle
o Yo-yo method
§ Production phase followed by costing phase; reel-in phase followed by reel-out phase; generation phase followed by energy-cost phase (while lowering resistance of the wing set).
o Note: By use of loop, a system may rotate continuously in one direction; in such, a return sector of the loop is phased to low resistance; such loop tactic hides the pumping cycle by continuous powering that is reduced by the continuous cost of the residual resistance in the return-low-resistance sector of the loop. In the power sector of the loop, the wings may be either drag based, HAWP based, or large cross-winding-wing based. ~JpF, June 2, 2012. [[Entry is on hot seat for peer review: AWES6481 AWES6485 ]]
o pumping cycles in AWES come in a variety of forms, some full drag-based and some based on crosswind techniques.
