Blue Skies Magazine is the independent voice of air sports.
Our only agenda is to make you want to get out and enjoy the blue skies. We publish a monthly print and digital magazine that covers skydiving, BASE jumping, paragliding — not to mention the totally unrelated stuff people who do those sports might be interested in.

Listen to the silence. And when the silence is deafening, you’re in the center of your own universe. When you get lost in your imaginatory vagueness, your foresight will become a nimble vagrant.
