Skydiving as a hobby

Life in the modern world is subject to severe stress, both at home and at work, and in society. Strong emotional upheavals are not always positive. Because of this, a person constantly needs to get rid of negative emotions. The simplest solution for this is to engage in extreme sports, since during training a person is exposed to a strong emotional shake and adrenaline enters the body.

Parachuting is gaining popularity. Many have heard of him, and know a lot of facts, but there are those who are happy to deal with him. Starting parachuting is easier than it sounds. The main thing is to have desire and willpower.The history of parachuting
The very first mention of a parachute occurred when Leonardo da Vinci told in his picture that a person has the opportunity to fly using a canvas that has been treated with starch. Already in the XVIII century, a parachute was invented. After 2 centuries, pilots began to need their own parachutes, so their model began to change.

And at the end of July 1930, a historic moment occurred – the first parachute jump. A few years later this significant day was made an official holiday for paratroopers.

Basic Parachuting Rules
For a beginner, a jump will be a very nervous event. Since parachuting is associated with stress, some people are forbidden to do it, for example, those who have heart problems or hypertension, because this is a big burden on the body, both physically and psychologically. Therefore, before class, you need to go to the therapist and undergo an examination of the whole organism. After receiving the tests and all indicators of the body, the doctor will either allow jumping or not. In addition, overweight people are also not recommended to jump. The most ideal figure is 75-80 kilograms.

Before the jump everyone needs to be instructed by a professional, which will last about 4 hours. Let it seem like a very long process, but safety is the most important thing in high jumps. There is an option – a jump with an instructor.

As a rule, a jump takes place from a height of 9000 meters and takes only 5 minutes. To make the landing pleasant, it is recommended to turn against the direction of the wind and reduce speed, and at the very end put two feet on the ground.

What you need to know about the first jump
To prepare for the jump, you can join a parachute club or contact a company that specializes in skydiving.

All beginners are given an individual instructor who checks the quality and safety of equipment:

backpack,
2 parachutes
devices for insurance.
As for the cost of the jump, it is always different and depends on different indicators. As a rule, the minimum price starts from 6000 rubles, and then it all depends on the club, equipment, level of training and experience of the instructor. By the way, you need suitable clothes, for example, such http://www.sportmaster.ua/en/catalog/cholovchiy_odyag79-termoblizna44/.

There is nothing complicated in parachuting. For someone, this will really cause stress and nervous tension. And even more so, it may seem that giving a high cost in 5 minutes of a flight is too expensive a pleasure. But for this money, the jumper has a guarantee of security, all the more it is worth it because the emotions and impressions that are during and after the jump are unique. It’s definitely worth a try.
