There are some people who prefer to use their free time to stay at home while others use their free time to do exciting activities the world has to offer. 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 several things you need to know about sky diving and one of that is that the speed it would take a sky diver to get to the bottom varies depending on the position of the body. It has been recorder that the top speed a free diver has eve achieved is almost 900 kilometers per hour but if the diver remains in a certain position wherein the belly is parallel to the ground then he could only achieve a speed of about 200 kilometers per hour.
If you free fall at 14,000 feet, you are bound to hit the ground within a minute, but some divers can take up to five to 7 minutes depending on the position they have the whole time. 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.
To add beauty to sky diving, you can always do it over the greatest sceneries on the planet. There are places that are tourists sites because of all the beauty it has to offer, but the thing here is that people who come visit get to admire it for about a day or two and then what else is left to do? This is the very reason why several tourists spots are now offering sky diving activities for their tourists. If you think you have seen all the beauty that this tourist spot has to offer, wait till you see it above ground! For people who are seeking not only thrill but beauty as well, you ought to be keen on your research about diving sites because there are so many of them to choose from and they all vary in what they have to offer.
There is a brief seminar you are going to have to take before you do your first dive and you cannot even dive alone since it is protocol that you do it with a professional sky diver first. 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.
