So the french invented the tandem skydive. Nice. 

The French invented EVERYTHING in skydiving. A Frenchman even invented ram-air parachutes. Well Domina Jalbert was sort of a Frenchman in that he was born in Quebec into a French-speaking family,  but his family moved to New England and that is where he learned engineering and learned how to build balloons and kites and parachutes and how to apply for US patents.
