Skydiving Today

Skydiving is one of the most popular action sports known to adrenalin and adventure seekers alike. Most "bucket list" jumpers who simply want to experience the beauty of free fall once, will get their first introduction to skydiving through a tandem jump, sometimes also called a tandem skydive. It's not uncommon for people to move straight into AFF or static line training, the two most common skydiving training progression programs for students to become fully certified as skydivers and participate in the sport on their own terms.

Skydiving activities take place around drop zones or a skydiving center, usually found at an airport where aircraft takes groups of skydivers up into the air so they can perform their jumps. Aircraft vary in type and size depending on the size of the drop zone.
