Paragliding is becoming a very popular sport throughout the world, both on the recreational and competitive level. With all of the beautiful, open areas we have here in the Cowboy State, it’s no surprise that the sport has caught on in Casper as well.
A short, 1-minute video was shared to Facebook by Stengel Media of a local paraglider taken by a racing drone. Along with the footage, they included a caption that stated:
Type of paragliding demonstrated in the video is actually called powered paragliding, because the pilot utilizes a back-mounted motor (often referred to as a paramotor), which provides enough thrust to take off using a paraglider.
