The hang-glider or the delta wing is a wing in the shape of delta, autostable during its flight, and which pilots in pendular mode, as an ULM (ultra light motorised). The departure is made on a very oblique plan, by running, until the take-off. Held by a belt, you will place then your foot on a trapeze, which will assure you a horizontal position during the flight. A pendular triangle will allow you then to modify your trajectory. If the flight is sensational, the rising of speed also, because the trajectory of the delta is a little bit like the one of a paper plane.
