Chile manned kiting and hang gliding
Start via a tip from Rick Masters:
:?: Construction of Chile's HG timeline might be fun.
Feel free to carefully step through time to discern what was happening in Chile way back onward.
"The territory of Chile has been populated since at least 3000 BC."
So since that early time, what occurred regarding kiting, gliding, hang gliding? :?: :?: :?:
El Volantín (Kite) Kite flying in Chile?


:arrow: :arrow: :arrow: Did Don Jorge Fuenzalida Cibié glide even once? :?: :?:
Fue presidente del Club de Yates de El Quisco

He learned to fly in Acapulco and when he returned to Chile in 1960, one was built, which we can see in the photo.

??? :?: :?: :?: Did any of her early pilots ever hang glide?

It may be a severe challenge to get early-Chile manned kiting and gliding data. Some of us will keep an eye out for clues to early aviation in Chile, even ancient matters.

And we seek any Chile citizen who has hang glided in U.S. airspace. Please report such pilots; thanks.

Meanwhile, some contemporary Chilean hang gliding:
