The Summary:



Is/Was and Skydiving:

Skydiving is simple, safe, and life-changing, and it is hard to beat for sheer excitement. What follows is a short list of types of jumps that are common for first-time jumpers to consider. The first one is a tandem jump, which is good for choosing, as jumpers are to be harnessed to certified instructors. The second one is called the accelerated free fall, or AFF. And here, the jumper is guided by instructors, but the jumper is able to have the use of their own parachute. Thirdly is the static-line jump, where a line attached to the plane is the connection point for the student.
