A Hanglider is a lightweight, un-powered glider aircraft constructed to TL–4 standards.

Description / Specifications[edit]

The craft consists of a single wing, constructed of light-weight spars and covered with light weight cloth. The pilot hangs underneath, and attached to the main spar on the frame by a harness. The craft has a glide ratio of around 10:1, giving it moderate to poor performance.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

Hangliders are often used by higher technology societies for sport or for their stealthy characteristics.
