    Why People Fly — a Flybubble film

    Have you ever wondered why people fly? Since the dawn of time mankind must have looked up at the sky and wanted to emulate the birds that move so freely above us.

    We are a fortunate generation. For us free flight has become a reality. Thanks to the generations before us the kit is safe and accessible, there are established flying schools and flying sites.

    Free flight in all its disciplines is more accessible than it has ever been.

    Our new Flybubble film celebrates the joy of free flight and the wisdom of British Philosopher Alan Watts.
