Skydiving Safety

The basis of parachuting safety is strict adherence to the rules and control over the implementation of all stages: equipment preparation, parachuting, jumping. Over the years of the development of parachuting, a system of strict norms and rules has been developed that are mandatory for ensuring security. These include the rules for laying the parachute, its regular laboratory tests, the rules for timely drying, re-laying and storage conditions.It is obvious that parachuting requires certain skills and the level of training of participants. It is knowledge and the ability to use it that can help you make the right decision in a critical situation. It is important to thoroughly know the structure of the parachute, its behavior in various conditions, and be able to act in the event of various situations in the air. You learn all of this in theoretical classes, and then in practice work out your knowledge to be automatic.

Among other things, it is important to have a stable psychological state, a good level of self-discipline and a strong desire to engage in parachuting. A jump from a height of 4000 m lasts 60 s, so it is important for a skydiver not to lose concentration and to cope with unnecessary fears in time. And if before the jump you still have some doubts, it is better to transfer your first time to a better time.
