Default Parahawking

Any pilots out there that want to see something REALLY cool, take a look at this "Parahawking" video. Birds of prey in Nepal find the best thermals for paraglider pilots, in exchange for an "in flight meal".
HERE is the link to the video Parahawking Over Nepal (HD)

Tell me what you think of THIS guys. Niri Te

What if I'm not a pilot?

Well then I guess YOU, get to stay on the ground with the TURKEY'S, while while those of us who are EAGLES, get to SOAR with the HAWKS.

He can WATCH it all he wants, but if he wants to DO IT, he is going to have to learn how to think, dream, and FLY like an Eagle.

What about sparrows? Sparrows fly.
So do bats.
Wasps fly.

And so do annoying little pieces of seagull turd. When you can show me a copy of your Canadian Pilot's license, THEN I will bother answering what you try to be cute about.

Turds can't fly, silly.

it's such a bother for me to have to make a copy of it and then scan it on my HDD.
Can't you just believe that I have one?

Leave each other alone. Niri Te, you've done something interesting, but that does not make you the sole authority (not that you even need a pilot's license to go paragliding). Iron_jones, you know not to prompt these reactions.

Anyway, interesting video. A very clever concept, I think

It has been said that certain Hawks, can actually "see" the rising air, and can pretty much head straight for it.

That's a really good idea. It could prevent crashes if there were trained instructors to bring a hawk/eagle along at every flight.
