    Cool beyond?

    Hi,
    Is it correct to write: "Beyond of being an astronaut he is also a pilot and a paraglider"

    No. We don't say "beyond of" in any circumstances. In your context, the best phrase at the beginning would be "As well as" and then put a comma after "astronaut".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    If you are listing his accomplishments you would say "in addition to being an astronaut...".
    If you are singing his praises you could say "but beyond being just an astronaut...".

    Not if you write "beiing", no.

    Additionally, you can say 'Besides being an astronaut...'
