'Sky's the limit' for tetraplegic paraglider Jezza Williams video

Jezza Williams never thought he could enjoy paragliding solo.

But now the tetraplegic - who has sky dived, white-water rafted and driven a rally car - is going for his paragliding license.

"I never thought I could do it myself. I did a few tandems and thought 'maybe I can do it'."

Williams would be the first New Zealand tetraplegic to gain his paragliding licence.

He uses a purpose-built buggy he designed which cradles him under the parafoil.

Despite having a few buggy crashes along the way, Williams thinks he's ironed out any design issues.

"The sky's the limit."
