The Beauty Of Hang Gliding
Mans oldest dream, as the saying goes.
How many of us as adults can remember dreaming about flying when we were kids? Hang gliding makes that dream into a reality. When we sleep we are in a dream state, and that is really how hang gliding can be: a dream state. There is a video on You Tube called “Dreaming Awake”, take a look at it and you’ll be put into a dreamland, whilst being awake.
There are times when I fly that I forget about the beauty of what I am doing. Then I wake up, and my dream is real. I take a look around me; up; down; to the side; the horizon is so far away as are the limits of what we are all capable of. It really does give you the sensation that anything is possible, and even when our feet are back on terra firma the wonder of what we have just done stays with us.
Taking people for tandem flights I never forget about that beauty. The person, you, I am flying together with, won’t let me forget. I just take a look at their face, feel their energy, and I see their dream become a reality and am reminded constantly of the beauty, and how fortunate I am, to live my dreams fully awake, and aware!
Hang gliding moves us into another dimension. Peace and excitement co-exist simultaneously. When tandem flying I am always aware of you. This awareness starts from the very first moment I meet you on the ground, getting to know you, talking you through the briefing, to preparing you for the tandem flight, to explaining the pre-flight procedure and assessing your own mental preparation. Everyone is different and this is part of my own attraction to doing tandem flights. I can no longer imagine the feeling you get from doing your very first ever, or in some cases, second, tandem flight, but I can see the enthusiasm, the anxiety, the absorption, the good sense, the courage, the list goes on and on, I have never seen second thoughts…. nerves? Yes, Lots of people are convinced that they want to try this experience, others are unsure but giving you a sense of security makes you forget your uncertainty and this is replaced with determination.
Be determined. Come and experience your dream.
Why let your sleep steal your dreams when you can have them awake?
