Parachuting skydiver in a freefall


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.

Click to view

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 (parachuting)?

So how do you determine which is the best one from all those you can see in the shops?

It is quite simple when you think about it.

Who has to use skydiving skills on a daily basis?

Who has ready made in depth books that cover every aspect of skydiving, static line and parachuting?

Click to view

For me there is only one answer and that is the military.

Just think about it. They deal with everything that you can find in a normal book on skydiving (parachuting) and then some. You do not find items that cover Recovery from Instability, rigging, Jumpmaster Procedures or Aircraft Procedure Signals and Jump Commands in your normal day to day skydiving book do you?

Click to view

It is being updated all the time with extra. We have compiled this enhanced CD with several variants of skydiving (parachuting) manuals issued to the military over the years up to the latest one that has been declassified.

Click to view

From PDF to MPEG4 presentations we have crammed everything we could find for you to make this disc the best ever skydiving (parachuting) manual on a CD.
