You will obtain the Paraglider as part of the Main Quest. Specifically, the “Crisis at Hyrule Castle” quest. During this quest, you will be tasked with using Skyview Towers to fill out your map. To do this, you’re going to need the Paraglider, which Purah is then going to give to you. The Skyview Tower is going to launch you high into the air, and you can then use the Paraglider to glide downwards.
