The question that still baffles many, what is the difference between parachuting and skydiving? Parachuting involves jumping out of a plane with the parachute being deployed straight away. Skydiving is just that, you jump out of a plane and experience free fall (skydive) before deploying the parachute at a safe height.
This is the ultimate test of courage and bravery and nothing can come close to a parachute jump for an out and out adrenaline fix. A typical jump will consist of arriving at the chosen destination and a briefing with a qualified instructor will insue. Now its time to get on the plane and climb to 13,000ft in the air. Securely fastened to your instructor you will then hear the following, ready, set, jump! This will be the last words you hear as you jump into the unknown!
