Powered paragliding is a form of sport where people wear small motors on their backs to propel them forward as they hang from a parachute.
The accident happened around 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
Gregory Gomez-Del Prado, spokesman for the provincial police, said the paraglider was pronounced dead at the hospital.
"What we know for now is that he might have done a false manoeuvre. He was learning how to manoeuvre the powered paraglider and he made a wrong manoeuvre at some point," he added.
Gomez-Del Prado does not know how many people were taking part in the class at the time.
Authorities are investigating the case.Suggest a correction
