Skydiving is an action sport that involves exiting an aircraft and returning to Earth with the aid of a parachute. Approximately 3.1 million skydives occur annually. Out of the 3.1 million jumps, the average number of fatalities is around 55 which is only 1 in every 56,363 of the jumps that take place.
The lowest combat jump occurred July 3, 1944 at 175 feet, which was accidental, due to an altimeter error. The youngest sky diver was four years old. It was a tandem jump made at 10,000 feet.
I don’t want pictures like this. I want pictures of me in the jungles of #Thailand, or #meditating at the top of #halfdome , or #skydiving. I rather have pictures of #travel and #adventure. Not #swag #love lol 😎#goals
Embracing our mood for ‘flying’ , this morning we brought you another post on this. While paragliding basically take off from high hills, skydiving on the other hand, uses plane as its platform to take off.
For an extreme outdoor junkie, skydiving should be on top of your must do list! And you don’t have to go far to try this. Pattaya in Thailand is currently famous for skydiving among the locals and foreigners!
If you have the guts and prefer an extreme kind of holiday, you can give skydiving a go!
