"I tried to let the quiet build up in me, and penetrate as far as it would go." To love modern flying machines is to love (or attempt to tolerate) noise, lots of noise... or so I thought! From the throaty big-bore Continentals on Cessna Skylanes, to the whining turbofans on modern airliners, piloting has always meant embracing and/or mitigating noise. And then I learned to paraglide. Launching and landing (on your feet!) under a sheet of ripstop nylon is truly pure magic. But even more magical for me is that the only sound I hear is the one of wind whistling through the lines.
Thanks for the photo @morganinthemountains !
