Hangsim is a flight simulator that simulates the sport of hang gliding or paragliding.

The game objective is quite simply to stay aloft, with a simple interface that forces you to use your senses to find drafts, thermals, avoid turbulence, etc. and carry on flying. Includes a series of scenarios that introduce some aspects of the basic gameplay as well as a free-form flying mode.

Graphics are completely Direct3D accelerated and include a host of weather and lighting effects.
