How to Fly a Powered Para Glider : How to Put on Paragliding Harness


Welcome to Expert Village. My name is Hugh
Murphy with Surf the Sky Paragliding. Now that we’ve carried our unit out to the beach,
we have it safely on a piece of plywood, something to protect it from the sand or any dirt debris,
then, we simply drop the harness out. We have it buttoned up to carry, so we simply pull
these out and lay our harness down so that we can harness up. I would say one of the
best expert tips when you’re in this configuration is to keep your throttle handle where it’s
not laying around and you’re accidentally going to step on it. You want to be very,
this is a very precision piece of equipment, so you got to want to make sure that your
handle is safely back out of the way, but close enough to reach. As we, as we’re going
to get in the leg straps, we’ll just lay them out right in front to make our entrance easy.
And then, simply come around and sit in the harness as if you were actually flying. Just
take on one shoulder strap at a time like this. And, at this point, simply clip in your
chest strap. Bring your leg straps up, one each. You’ll notice the quick release that
makes this very easy and then you’re other quick release. And, you’re into your harness
ready to go.
