Reasons to go Skydiving
Post Date: June 21, 2011

Can you see yourself as someone who would jump out of an airplane flying at 15,000 feet? It may seem a bit strange that some people will fly high up into the sky in an airplane and then intentionally leap out, but to others it is their sport of choice.

For a lot of people it is a necessary part of their job. Rescue workers, paratroopers, and fire fighters often times will have to jump from planes because their destination is usually not accessible by any other means.

A lot of people do it just for fun. These individuals will make a sport out of jumping from a plane, off a cliff, or even a high bridge. Can you imagine why someone would be daring and crazy enough to do this? Well, read on and find out why these daredevils will participate in such a wild and seemingly crazy sport. Skydiving is a sport that can be extremely exhilarating. Each dive is marked with potential danger that makes this sport more challenging and fascinating than other sports.

Solo SkydivingBear in mind however, skydiving is extreme and not for everyone. If you are afraid of heights, then you might want to forget skydiving and try something else.

When a skydiver first jumps out of the plane they will experience a downward falling sensation and will continue until they reach  terminal velocity, approximately around 120 mph. Generally this sensation will fade after reaching terminal velocity because they are no longer accelerating.

Most skydivers make their first jump with an experienced and trained instructor. During the jump the trainer is responsible for a stable exit and maintaining proper free fall position. With training, experience, and mastering aerial skills the fear of jumping will  eventually diminish. Taking the plunge is akin to flying. Some people are fascinated with the science of skydiving. It enables you to physically control your movement while hurling towards the earth at speeds up to 120 miles per hour, then gracefully floating to the ground below. Skydiving can be thrilling and give you an adrenaline rush like no other sport. People get addicted to the thrill that is experienced when taking that first step out of the plane and into the air.

After you have had the experience of soaring through the clouds and seeing the panoramic views of the landscape far below, you will never want to stop skydiving. People who skydive often speak of the beauty and the freedom they experience by floating through the air and the clouds. Skydiving is an experience that you can share with friends and family. It is something you can tell your grandchildren about to make them proud of their heritage. It can also give you a great story to tell when you get together with friends. Whether you are part of a skydiving team or prefer to skydive solo, you will always enjoy the sensation of flying. Skydiving is more than just falling from a plane to the earth far below, it is the ability to control your body as you are in a free fall. There are skydiving teams that are able to make their dives look like a ballet in the sky. Many sports that you are not familiar with may seem strange and unnatural. After you learn more about a particular sport and experience it for yourself you can become comfortable with it. In any sport that you may become involved in, there is an adrenaline rush that lures you back for more. It is the same with skydiving. The rewards of a stronger self esteem and the knowledge that you were able to overcome a possible fear are part of the draw to the sport of skydiving.
