About Air Sports
Since the very beginning of time, human beings have dreamed of having the ability to soar through the skies like a bird. Thanks to the Wright brothers in 1903, this dream had become reality, and we finally realised that anything really is possible.
Things have changed a lot since then. The evolution of flying technology in the 20th century has created an abundance of different types of flying machines and methods that we can use to further enhance and develop this exciting (yet alternative) group of sports.
Some air sports are quite extreme. Base jumping and bungee jumping are probably too extreme for most, but had become very popular in the mid-90s, with daredevils from all around the world attempting to jump off the highest towers, cliffs and platforms. Some were not so lucky…
Often, air sports make us do things we never thought we should, could or would do. Those who attempt sky diving for the first time usually comment on how amazing the experience is – and to see the world from such a different perspective makes them see life in a new way.
Hang gliding lets us go for a short trip through the landscape and literally soak in the atmosphere. Perhaps the most relaxing of all air sports, hang gliders get the chance to explore the scenery and share their adventures with friends and family after landing.
Whichever way you choose to look at it, air sports are for those of us who are true adventurers at heart.
