Gliding works much like you would expect hang gliding to function in real life. Your ability to glide works in coordination with your momentum. The faster you are moving, the better your glide ability will be. However, if you hit a level or uphill patch of land while gliding, you will land. Like flight, you have a limited glide time and a 10 second cooldown.
