All About Sky Diving


Parachuting, or skydiving, is a method of transiting from a high point to Earth with the aid of gravity, involving the control of speed during the descent with the use of a parachute. It may involve more or less free-fall, a time during which the parachute has not been deployed and the body gradually accelerates to terminal velocity.
The first parachute jump in history was made by Andre-Jacques Garnerin, the inventor of the parachute, on October 22nd, 1797. Garnerin tested his contraption by leaping from a hydrogen balloon 3,200 feet above Paris. Garnerin’s parachute bore little resemblance to today’s parachute’s however as it was not packed into any sort of container and did not feature a ripcord. The first intentional freefall jump with a ripcord-operated deployment was not made until over a century later by Leslie Irvin in 1919. While Georgia Broadwick made an earlier freefall in 1914 when her static line became entangled with her jump aircraft’s tail assembly, her freefall descent was not planned. Broadwick cut her static line and deployed her parachute manually, only as a means of freeing her self from the aircraft to which she had become entangled.
The military developed parachuting technology as a way to save aircrews from emergencies aboard balloons and aircraft in flight, and later as a way of delivering soldiers to the battlefield. Early competitions date back to the 1930s, and it became an international sport in 1952.

WHY SKYDIVE?

Nothing Is Risk Free: Skydiving is an extreme sport, and that comes with risks. Skydivers work hard to make it safer, and safety has increased greatly over the decades. If you want a number, the USPA tandem skydiving fatality rate is just 0.3 deaths per 100,000 jumps. Most skydivers don’t fit the crazy risk taker stereotype. ‘The buzz’ is not most regular jumpers’ motivation to skydive.
Own Your Fate: Skydiving is scary, anyone that says otherwise is lying. It’s never as scary your first skydive, but we all get ‘the fear’ occasionally. Owning that fear is empowering and builds confidence. Whether you skydive once and prove to yourself you can, or you spend hundreds of jumps mastering freefall skills, skydiving is a rewarding personal challenge and rising to it does wonders for your self-esteem. Ever sat in a café and wondered how many others in there have jumped out a moving aircraft at 13,000 ft.? It’s fun to know you have.
The Moment: Most of us live busy lives with lots of noise. Big cities, mobile phones, jobs, families, responsibilities. What everyone who has skydived can describe is the feeling of being totally in the moment for 60 seconds during freefall. Our busy, Boston skydiving enthusiasts can attest to the luxury this aspect of skydiving brings. Freefall engages all your senses. In that minute, there is nothing else in your world, and that feeling is totally magical. The sensation is almost therapeutic and why many of us keep coming back. A skydive teaches you the value of a single minute (and how much fun you can have in one).
For the Right Reasons: There are many reasons people want to skydive, from the profound to the ‘bucket list’. Any reason is good, so long as it is your reason. Don’t skydive to impress somebody. Skydiving is for you. Another common reason is to get over a fear of heights. If this is why you want to jump, don’t get your hopes up.
