There are particular things a new skydiver should understand prior to making their first jump. There are various types of safety equipment you will have, tips about managing the free fall and gliding down when the parachute opens and ideas about overall physical security.
Skydiving is Safe
There are some deaths from skydiving annually; an average of 35 or so from about 2 million jumps. Other items that may factor in the security of jumping:
The aircraft – all aircraft must meet certain security standards by the aviation sector in addition to skydiving regulations.
The gear – a lot of folks that are fearful of skydiving state that the potential failure of security equipment is what prevents them from going. Actually, gear rarely fails. Again, check the centre’s track record before you opt to jump together.
Procedures – Many injuries and deaths associated with skydiving need to do with a lack of comprehension. You’ve got to pay attention to, and be sure that you completely understand, the processes and the judgment calls you might need to make.
The government doesn’t regulate the age or physical wellbeing of skydivers. There’s no”high age” for skydiving.
There’s standard safety equipment used during each hop. They include:
A helmet – the landing could be somewhat difficult sometimes. A helmet will protect your head in case of a tough or hard landing.
The first shock from the cold once you jump is something that doesn’t have to be added to your nervous body and mind.
A tap – The harness should fit properly. Ensure that your jumpsuit and harness work well together and don’t create any openings or openings.
An automatic activation device – that opens the parachute at a predetermined elevation and is a excellent tool for first time jumpers.
The instructor/trainer – he or she teaches you what you will need to know and if it’s your first time skydiving it is advisable that you do it with a teacher.
Use sign language rather than trying to talk.
Do not eat anything heavy or fatty before your jump
