The dream of human being flying like a bird to experience the freedom in the sky came true when Wright Brothers, Orville and Wilbur first invented the aero plane. Even today the dream of flying silently in the sky is realized by only a select few. Paragliding is a testament to human achievement in realizing this dream. Since its inception, paragliding has spread all over the world as people searched for new places to explore their new-found freedom and ability.
