How would you compute how long the wings would need to be for a given weight of person?

@RedGrittyBrick Right, the Gossamer Albatross and all the things linking from there on Wikipedia seem to be with bicycles. But I was thinking more like someone with a superhumanly strong chest flapping his/her wings of .. eg, a hangglider. Maybe a better way to ask it would have been do hang gliders with no legs have an advantage over legged ones.

@annav Yes, it's certainly classical. But now with modern materials!

@JohnRennie Yeah, I saw that one, and your answer linking to the Gossamer Albatross. I thought this was different because I was asking about wing size.

@JanDvorak Thanks. What should I consider about the hangglider? Is there an equation maybe? Or some physical constants?
