If you want a exhilarating thrill, then you need to go skydiving. You can watch all the videos and talk to people who have been skydiving but you will never understand the feeling until you try it for yourself. Launch your internet browser and type learn to skydive ca and see the results. You will get a search result with all the different schools that offer skydiving. The first time you go skydiving you will be attached to your instructor. You will get to the airport and the instructor will go over safety and explain the whole experience. Also they will ask if you want additional items on your jump, for example video or still images.
I would recommend you get the video. Once the instructor has giving you the lesson, it’s time to suite up. The instructor explains how the parachute works and the gear. You will be given a jump suite, goggles and a harness. Depending on your weight you will be given what altitude you will jump from. A heavier person may only jump from a altitude of 6,000 feet and while a lighter person would be able to reach the max altitude of 13,000 feet. Now the fun part begins, you head over to the plane. Some airplanes look good while others you may think, it’s a good that I have a parachute on. As you both board the aircraft, the instructor will sit next to you. At this point you get a chance to think and sometimes maybe even chicken out of the jump. The plan takes off and starts to climb. The aircraft may hold a total of six groups. We were able to go to the max altitude of 13,000 feet. It seemed that it took forever to reach that altitude. The instructor would reach over and give an altitude update. Once we got close to the top, he connected us together. As I mentioned your first jump will be a tandem jump.
Now we are close 13,000 feet we head to the door. My instructor gave me a thumbs up and we feel out of the door. As you fall you look up and you see the plane moving away and wind is rushing and I was told we are falling at about 110 miles per hour. The one thing that will stick out of the fall is that you do not get the feeling in your stomach that you would on a roller coaster. If you picked the video, the videographer will be filming the whole experience. Then we reached the deployment altitude, my instructor pulled the parachute. The world looks so different from this point of view and depending on where you jumped your experience you be will amazing. The adrenaline you experience is not explainable. You head back to the hanger and you have a big smile on your face. You want to tell everybody that they need to go skydiving. You pick up you video and pictures and share with friends and family. You will never forget this experience!
