Hang gliding is the sport of piloting an aircraft called a hang glider. Modern hang gliders provide the ability to stay airborne for hours and travel hundreds of miles. The pilot uses a body harness to strap into a light-weight unmotorized glider that is foot-launched from a mountain, hill, or tall structure. In areas with flat terrain, a technique called "Aerotowing" is used to get the glider in the air. Hang gliding is generally viewed as an unsafe sport but has increased in safety over the years. Most modern gliders have an aluminum alloy frame with a fabric wing. The glide ratio has improved which allows gliders to fly for extended time periods. Instruments used during flight include a variometer, GPS, and radio. Safety equipment used include a helmet, backup parachute (for both the pilot and the glider), first-aid, ropes, and a knife. For a high altitude flights, oxygen tanks are needed.
