Whats it like to Skydive?

By Jude Wison - UK Parachuting

What happens when you skydive out of the plane?

This is such a difficult sensation over load to put into words! What its not like is a roller coaster, you know that tummy flipping, gut wrenching lurch of feeling.  Its very, very obvious that you are falling, and that the earth is getting very close… Very quickly!  (What is also very apparent is that if your instructor doesn’t pull the parachute soon you might not last much longer… but this just adds to the fun!)

And when the Parachute opens? 

Your first feeling might just be thank goodness I survived that! The whole thing is a sensory over load. The ride under canopy is startlingly peaceful, with time to look around at the views and process whats going on

Time to land (phew I hear you scream?)

We are never sure if this is relief its over, or gutted that the experience is about to come to an end. The big question:
HAVE YOU GOT THE BUG? For some people once is just never enough, that’s when we know we have a budding skydiver on our hands which is when the journey begins

ps – whilst I’ve got you, don’t forget its Mothering Sunday THIS WEEK. Now not all Mums are made equal, some want more than flowers, we can arrange a skydive on Sunday, or a voucher for Mum to choose another day to come and skydive. Is your Mum brave enough…Or are you, you can skydive with her!
