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.

Yet, in our modern world we also face more pressures on our time than ever before. The pace of life can mean we lose track of what is important and sometimes we need to stop and ask ourselves, hypothetically, what would we do if money was no object?

How would you really enjoy spending your life? For us it's free flight, whether that be paragliding, hang gliding, paramotoring or speed flying. Join us in this film as we celebrate the joy of flight set against the wisdom of British Philosopher Alan Watts.

"It is so important to consider this question. What do I desire?"
