Exciting Extreme Skydiving Adventures

Jul 2, 2008
Have you been dreaming of taking up skydiving? Does the thought of jumping out of a plane with a parachute strapped to your back and free-falling excite you? An extreme skydiving adventure may be just the ticket for you. If you are a risk taker and daredevil this is just the sort of exciting sport you would enjoy.

Now, not everyone is ready to jump, as it were, straight into this kind of extreme sport, save for the very most hardened thrill seekers among us. It takes more than a little bit of mental preparation (or a truly exceptional disposition) to be ready to jump out of a plane and plummet to Earth at speeds exceeding a hundred miles an hour. For instance, consider how far one falls in extreme skydiving. Say you jump out of the plane at thirteen thousand feet; typically one opens the parachute at about twenty five hundred feet and then gently drifts the rest of the way. This means there is a free fall of nearly two miles!

It is imperative that lessons are taken from a certified instructor. You will be taught about planes and the differences in altitudes and the equipment required for the safest fall as well as the proper way to land. All of these are required to earn certification and can be done with just a few classes.

The knowledge you will gain from these highly trained expert instructors will be invaluable. If you are not sure of something ask questions. There are several key hand signals that are of vital importance for communicating with your comrades while sailing freely through the air. You could easily send the wrong message if you have not listened carefully in class.

One mistake or a piece of faulty equipment can prove fatal. Be sure that you know your pilot, you are familiar with the type of aircraft, all your equipment is in excellent condition, and you have learned all there is to know before taking a jump.

Be sure that you are well prepared and have the gained enough knowledge and are properly equipped before jumping.

Once you have taken all the classes and are well prepared it is time to purchase or rent the necessary equipment. Your life is literally only as safe as the equipment you are using.

Once you have passed the test and received your certification you are ready for an extreme skydiving adventure.
