Years back (1970's to the mid 90's) SKY DIVING was a sport to reckon with. How I envied women skydivers at that time. I don't think I'd ever qualify for that sport.

Then thereafter came PARAGLIDING or HANG GLIDING. You had kite like wings strapped on your back and you had to jump from a high cliff, soar like a bird and glide down to earth. Some newer Hang Gliders are motorized to give you sustained flights. Just the thought of flying like a bird and surveying tierra firma below is so thrilling and fascinating. These sports are quite expensive mind you.
Flying like a bird is as old as mankind. Remember Daedalus and Icarus of old mythology? When I was a kid I love climbing tall trees. It never crossed my mind then of me jumping down with a huge and sturdy umbrella. Gosh! I now wonder! Visit www.ushpa.aero
