Luke Skywalker employing a wing pack

Wing packs were a type of glider in use on the planet Solay. The packs were used in conjunction with a jump platform to glide across the landscapes of Solay. After strapping on a wing pack, an individual would be propelled into the air by a jump platform and would then activate the wing pack, which would release two large wings. The release mechanism was controlled by a pull cord on the side, which the wearer yanked at the top of his or her jump.

Around 4 ABY, Luke Skywalker employed a wing pack to pursue the fleeing ex-King Blackart. Skywalker used the pack to glide in front of Blackart's rocket ship, where he disabled the rocket with his lightsaber.
