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.

Help translate Flybubble videos!

We usually add subtitles to our instructional videos and reviews, in English. This helps you get a basic translation in your own language by clicking the Settings icon on our videos (bottom right) then Subtitles/CC and selecting your language, if this has already been added.

Or click on English (United Kingdom) if you’d like to learn English, a free service provided by Flybubble 😉

Even if we have not yet provided subtitles, YouTube (Google) automatically generates ones that are pretty good (90%-95% correct) so you can already get a rough translation of everything on the Flybubble Channel.
