Skydiving Festival – Experience the thrill

Skydiving has always created a lot of excitement among people. The feel of free fall; the wind gushing through our face-and-body is something that we all want to experience. Unfortunately, in India, we did not have much opportunity to experience such things in the past. Well, the good news is that the wait is over. Skydiving is the latest thrill among the Indian adventure sports and it has been in existence for the past two years. Since 2010, Waltair Skydive India has pioneered and handled the sport very well in India.

The types of jump options available are:

  • Static Line Jump: This is a conventional method and is often used in sport parachuting as the basic step in skydiving training. It is inclusive of one day ground training. This jump is made at about 4000 feet above the ground and a line attached from the parachute to the aircraft opens the parachute as the skydiver jumps off. The participant jumps alone with the parachute and the parachute is deployed immediately after leaving the plane, regardless of actions taken by the skydiver. The skydiver is guided to the ground by radio contact or ground signals.
  • Tandem Jump: This is a form of jump which allows a first-time jumper to experience the excitement and thrill of the sport without any preparation or knowledge. You jump with an instructor backing you from exit to landing. Hence, training for tandem jump is less—usually under two hours. The jump is made at about 9000-10000 feet above sea level and the instructor deploys the parachute at about 5000 feet above the ground.
  • Accelerated Free-fall (AFF) Jump: This is a self jump inclusive of one day ground training. The jump is made at around 10,000 to 14,500 feet above ground level. Normally, two instructors jump with the participant. The instructors hold the participant until the participant deploys his/her own parachute. This is the fastest way to experience free fall for about 40 seconds. One static line jump is mandatory for undergoing AFF.
