Skydiving is both an activity and sport, where people jump from an aircraft freefall, and perform acrobatic manoeuvres, before landing by parachute on the ground.
To skydive solo you will be required to follow a recognised program of training to prove your competency. This includes both practical and theoretical training on the ground and in the air. Usually after 15-25 jumps, you will be a skydiver in your own right.
Tandem skydiving offers a quick and easy introduction to free-fall. Attached securely to a tandem instructor who takes charge of all the necessary procedures, there is virtually no experience needed to enjoy a tandem skydive.
Aside from some weight and minimum age requirements pretty much anyone who has a reasonable level of fitness can enjoy a tandem skydive.
Most people are a little scared when they are preparing to skydive, and this mind-over-matter feeling is what makes people love skydiving. Your instructors will help you mentally prepare for the jump by dress rehearsing and teaching you techniques to conquer the fear.
This varies depending on the height you jump from. If jumping from 10,000ft about 30 seconds, from 15,000ft about 60 seconds.
When freefalling during a skydive you can reach speeds of up to 125mph.
You will need to attend a dedicated skydive jump airfield (or dropzone). There are thousands across the globe so there should be one near you. To find your nearest skydiving centre visit the AvPay skydiving directory.
