What is sky diving?
Skydiving is a sport involving a skydiver
jumping down from an airplane while it
is flying and parachuting to the ground.
Skydiving can be done individually and
with other people. Training is required
to go solo. The jump can also be made
from a helicopter or the bottom of a
hot air balloon from 4000m or
13,000 ft. Some thrill seekers attempt
to skydive without a parachute whilst
flying through the air, and instead rely
on the small parachutes they have
professionals put on them.

equipment prices higher. Similarly, the average
skydiver carries more equipment than in earlier
years, with safety devices (such as an AAD)
contributing a significant portion of the cost.

price for new equipment.

should take when skydiving involve your

release works well and that you have a second

Devices-Beginning skydivers may not realize
the amount of adrenaline and nerves they will
feel while making their first jump. Because of
