What is Skydiving?
Skydiving is a sport involving a skydiver jumping down from an airplane, helicopter or hot air balloon while it’s flying and parachuting to the ground and can be done individually or with other people. Lengthy training is required to go solo.
The Guinness Book of World Records cites skydiving as providing the highest speed to an individual in a non-mechanical sport. The idea of skydiving is not new. Leonardo da Vinci thought about parachuting and left a few drawings about it to show how such a device might work.
In France during the 18th Century Sébastien Lenormand, J. P Blanchard and André Jacques Garnerin became serious about falling from heights and made experimental jumps from hot air balloons. During World War I, parachutes operated with a ‘static line’, a cord attached to the plane and to the chute which caused the chute to open automatically. These were widely used to evacuate planes that had been damaged.
