I have been a paraglider pilot for over 20 years and have watched as paragliding has progressed from being seen as an occassional oddity to an enjoyed and expected part of the community. With no noise, and little impact, paragliders have been graceing the sky, and landing at municipal facilities around the country for at least a dozen years. It has been mentioned in a couple of newspaper articles in my community as being one of the harbingers of spring, watching the paragliders slowly circiling in the thermals.

Seeing quiet paragliders gently floating through the sky would seem to add to the serenity of the area. I don't think they "puncture the skys" they very quietly float around when I've seen them, kind of like the hawks.

oh yes ... let us share our park with the gliding pilots of the air. What a lovely addition to our park experience. so quiet, such a slight footprint and what joy to see them aloft. I am sure that my granddaughter would be overjoyed to see them sharing the sky with the birds and clouds. pure poetry !

I wouldn't mind seeing some hanggliders descending on my family picnic. HEck I taught my kids to protect themselves. After we shoot p a bunch of beer cans we could use something moving to shoot at. I say bring them on. Let's see what kinda guts they got.
