The Sport of Kings has gained new wings!

For millennia, men and women have been training hawks to hunt wild quarry.  Watching the birds take off and capture their prey has inspired countless observers to dream about taking off and flying themselves.  Unfortunately, up until recently, such fantasies were just wishful thinking.

The falconers in this video have finally joined their birds in the sky!  Indeed, with the help of paragliders, the falconers float hundreds of feet above the ground as their hawks glide around them.  It truly is spectacular watching the birds calculate the angle and trajectory they have to take to land on the falconers’ gauntlets as they themselves are flying.
