"The term 'he' is used instead of 'he/she' and other such linguistically terrible constructs. The term is not used to imply gender, but specifies a member of the human race, otherwise known as the race of Man, or Mankind. This includes equally all genders of our species." – Hang Gliding/Paragliding Association of Canada

We at Southwest Airsports also use the term "he" on this website to indicate male/female for the same reason.  American English, including our political and cultural institutions, does not belong to the feminists and other social radicals.

We are not interested in your sex life and we do not want to hear about it.  It has nothing to do with paragliding.  If you have physical affections for other humans, animals, and/or things demonstrate those affections elsewhere.  We do want to know.  This is a paragliding school NOT a sex forum or a platform for those who wish to weaponize language.  Our sole purpose is to help pilots fly paragliders safely and enjoy our sport.

Selective service registration notice for young men     

In case it is not clear or was never taught in school, men (males) are the ones that, when necessary, often must pay the ultimate price to preserve our civilization (or what's left of it) from dangerous enemies who hate anything American.  The feminists have been silent concerning the draft – the requirement that all men 18-26 years of age must register which, often enough, can result in one's death.  The draft is involuntary.  Where were these noisy women and their supporters during the Civil War?  World War I?  World War II? The Korean War? The Viet Nam War?  For every woman killed during the Viet Nam War 10,000 men were killed.  Have the feminists objected to this gross inequality of death?  How do they propose to rectify this inequality -- this inequality of death and sacrifice?

Penalties for failure to register:

Failing to register or comply with the Military Selective Service Act is a felony punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 or a prison term of up to five years, or a combination of both. Also, a person who knowingly counsels, aids, or abets another to fail to comply with the Act is subject to the same penalties. https://www.sss.gov/Registration/Why-Register/Benefits-and-Penalties

Too bad if a (born) male pervert attempts to excuse itself from registration (see below).  We at Southwest Airsports are truly sorry that this scheme didn't work.  If such a person is drafted, our advice is:  stay out of the shower, stop taking your hormone pills, and try to get a desk job.

TRANSGENDER PEOPLE  Individuals who are born female and changed their gender to male are not required to register. U.S. citizens or immigrants who are born male and changed their gender to female are still required to register. https://www.sss.gov/Registration-Info/Who-Registration

Southwest Airsports salutes the men who enlisted during the wars.  This particularly includes the draftees who had no choice but to serve their country.  We salute the women who stayed home and took care of their children and families and did what they could to serve and help their men and the war effort.  The father-in-law of the owner of Southwest Airsports was a WWII veteran of the D-Day invasion/massacre which saved the world from the tyranny of the National Socialist German Workers' Party i.e. the NAZI's.  American men may once again have to save our nation from the dreadful curse of communism/socialism.

Southwest Airsports proudly trains members of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Thank you.  Please, always fly safely.
