sky - diving
PostPosted: Thu 22 Jan, 2009  Reply with quote

has anyone ever been sky-diving ?

I wish to join the program wherein your first jump is on your own, trained how to go without tandem! (called AFF or something)

so i can

be in the sky you know

then touch back down of course!

it looks, exciting, terrifying, peaceful, all at once,

it must be a great serene peace, to float in the naked sky for several minutes.

yes, I have sky dived smile

I highly recommend it for any adrenaline freak ^^

There's nothing like it.

You can't hear anything, including yourself, as hard as you may try.

I remember sitting on the bench inside the airplane, and after about 15 minutes of going up, the door opens, and people start jumping, you go forward as people go off the bench.
I remember standing right beside the door, the instructor looks at me and he says:
1, 2, 3 and we just jump.
A few seconds of falling normally and then I became completely oblivious of everything. I remember just looking down and watching the ground slowly coming closer and closer to me.

The best turn3

Here's a picture of me after coming back from the plane. Been quite some time since..

Im the guy on the right, and the chubby guy in the middle was my instructor.

edit: some nice facts,

the drop was about 3 kilometers with another kilometer of gliding down with the open parachute. It takes about one whole minute (just the free fall )

I remember when I got down, I had blue marks on my shoulders from the moment the parachute opened, cause it pulls you very aggressively. But because of the adrenaline rush, I didn't feel a thing

wow, awesome

i have been hang gliding

it was very fun

the training especially
we'd run off little hills, "walk, jog, run!" then you'd coast down the hill gliding peacefully

but for the gliding we were towed to a truck, tandem with instructor (thank heavens!) so he did most of the flying, [ we went about 1500 ft up, released, glided back down]

HOWEVER,
to have a glider, and run off a mountain top, and soar for an hour .....
that would be sweet!

relV did you do tandem or did you jump on your own ?

this is one of the things iv always been determined to do once.

and on a slightly different note, has anyone seen that footage of the rocket man? he's like wearing a wing suit with a propulsion system. He flies for ages over mountains and seas and stuff. it looks amazing.

yes,

there are people working on making a wingsuit

so you don't need a parachute to land

meaning you jump out of a plane, or off a mountain, and glide and glide and glide

and then come to a stop ! and peacefully land

this sounds incredible.

that sounds soooo cool.
i've never been sky diving, and i'd like to if only for the fear that the parachute won't open.
