Scott Mason and Parahawking – the next step

Friday 9 June, 2017

Parahawking

“Vultures don’t get enough pages in paragliding magazines. Leaf through scuba-diving magazines and you’ll see lots of articles about wildlife. Beginner pilots should be introduced to birds – many of us are inspired to fly because of them.”

Scott Mason tells us how he’s hoping to bounce back after the devastating closure of his world-famous Parahawking project – and why we should all pay more attention to our neighbours in the sky.
