There are various types of people in the world but they can all be categorized into two: those that do not take risks and those that are risk takers and thrill seekers. Not many people can stomach the sight of high places and this is why there are only a few people that would be enticed by skydiving. There are various positions a sky diver can be in when he free falls and each position will differ in speed. The most typical diver position is when the belly of a person if facing or parallel to the ground and this helps in slowing their descend to the ground.
Free falling from an aircraft 14,000 feet above the ground will last for about a minute but the typical sky diver can take about 5 to 7 minutes. There are so many sceneries you get to visit by foot but only very few people get to admire the beauty the world has to offer from thousands of feet off the ground.
There are some places that are so beautiful from above and that is why you should choose to sky dive above these places. There are some people who would go on tour of these places, enjoy it for about a day or two and then end up with nothing else to do. This is the very reason why several tourists spots are now offering sky diving activities for their tourists. There is nothing like the feeling of seeing something that only very few people will be able to see. If you do your research,l yo will be surprised as to how many sky diving sites are out there.
If you are new to sky diving, you will not be allowed to dive alone but rather, you are going down with an instructor who will tell you how you should position your body when you are already falling. The first time you do it, you are going to feel so happy and excited, but the moment the aircraft takes off, that’s the time you will feel nervous and you will think about all the worst case scenarios that could possibly happen while you are 14,000 feet above the ground. The instructor would then ask you if you are ready to go and once you say yes, both of you will take the leap and the aircraft will suddenly look smaller and smaller in just a few seconds.
