Have you ever considered sky diving?
Do you wonder what sky diving would feel like?
Do you know much about sky diving?
Sky diving definitely looks like, a frightening experience. Just
watching people jumping from plans from thousands of feet in the air is
enough to send chills down your spine.
One would have to wonder whether sky diving is as exciting as people
make it out to be or is this activity a total nightmare. For those who are
not interested in sky diving or would never even consider it, perhaps to them
it seems like a foolish and crazy thing to do.
However for thousands of people in the world, the thrill of sky diving
keeps sending them back for more. Sky diving is a sport that requires
training in safety and technique. Serious sky divers learn all the necessary
skills needed for making the jump. However for the person who's always been
fascinated with sky diving but not interested in making it a hobby, there is
one method of sky diving that doesn't require instruction.
This form of sky diving is referred to as tandem skydiving.
It is considered to be safe, quite easy and very exciting. This sky
diving technique allows a person to freefall at very high speeds while being
harnessed to an instructor. For the individual who's always dreamt of jumping
from a plan, this type of sky diving is probably best for them.
Contrary to what you might think, sky diving does not make a person
feel as if they are falling. Instead when a person jumps, it's as if they are being supported by a
cushion of air. When thinking about sky diving, automatically you may sense a
feeling of an upset stomach. However, people say the experience is similar to
being in the water, the body is buoyant.
Sky diving is an activity that an individual would probably have to
experience for themselves in order to actually understand how it feels.
Unless you are determined to try sky diving, there is no need to strap on a
parachute just yet.
Okay so before
you go, you may want to look at a good book or manual on skydiving
So how do
you determine which is the best one from all those you can see in the shops?

simple when you think about it.

about it. They deal with everything that you can find in a normal book on skydiving

Instability, rigging, Jumpmaster Procedures or Aircraft Procedure Signals and
Jump Commands in your normal day to day skydiving book do you?
