Paragliding is a recreational sport that relies heavily on the skill to control a parachute to fly. An athlete has to start from a height to be able to fly with a parachute. There are three types of races in paragliding, namely: cross country, aerobatics, and bivouac (fly ultra). However, in the Asian Games, there will only be cross-country and aerobatics raced. This sport is the first time to be held in the Asian Games.
