So you’ve made your very first skydive a little while ago.
It’s always been on your list. It’s a long time dream to soar up in the sky and feel what it’s like to fall free. It’s truly an experience out of this world. And to help you prepare, we talked to people around the drop zone - from instructors with 20,000+ jumps to first timers who just landed.
Skydiving indoors.. wait, what? How is it possible?
Indoor skydiving is another name for a vertical wind tunnel.
Basically, it is a big vertical cylinder with air running through it at high speed. It allows to simulate freefall conditions indoors, without actually jumping out of an airplane. The wind speed is high enough to support the weight of a person and let you ‘float’. First time flyers can experience freefall-like flight indoors, and skydivers can perfect their freefalling skills in the wind tunnel.
When you think of skydiving, first thing that comes to your mind is freefall: flying your own body in the open sky, the thrill, the rush, the wind and absolute freedom from any worries. It’s a totally fantastic experience that is out of this world, but there is also the second part of the jump that’s equally exciting.
