Skydiving & Popular Aircraft

Do you want to jump out of an airplane with a friend, a special someone or simply with others like yourself? Parachuting describes the process of skydiving out of an airplane and descending slightly to the earth. Skydiving allows you to feel like you're flying, without the feeling of insecurity in the air. After a parachute is released, it slows the process of descent providing you with a great opportunity to enjoy the remarkable view thousands of feet high!

If it's your first time you will be strapped in with a Tandem Master! Your tandem instructor will be with you the entire time! This gives you the opportunity to focus more on the scenery as opposed to focusing on saving your own life. Once your free fall is over, the instructor will launch your parachute providing a beautiful glide before a safe landing.

Wanting to know what altitude you will be skydiving from?

The airplane has to hit an altitude of 10,000 to 14,000 feet before you can exit. That means, you will be diving from almost 3 miles over the ground! This height cap exists for your protection, any higher and you would require an oxygen mask!

If you are nervous about the parachute releasing you can rest assured, you will be educated in depth on what to expect!

If your first parachute gives you trouble, you have a little extra time. This reserve chute is immediately activated and launched should you and your tandem master hit a low elevation without the primary canopy operating. At some locations, a "static line jump" may be used for parachute deployment training. During this exercise, you jump from the plane with a safe and secure line to the aircraft.

Popular Skydiving Airplanes

"Light sport aircraft" are the most heavily used during skydiving. Apart from recreational sport use, light aircraft are excellent for freight transport and aerial photography. However, most of these planes are made and designed primarily for skydiving as they climb faster than typical aircraft allowing divers to jump up to 4 times in one hour!

Depending on the power of the engine, it can take as little as 10 or 20 minutes to arrive at diving height. Unsurprisingly, the size of the engine determines how quickly it gets up to this point. The quicker planes, like the King Airs with PT6A-20 engines, are regarded as the fastest in the world in their ascent.

In addition to a speedy ascent, these crafts can hold up to 15 divers. {The King Airs, however, are only the second most popular aircraft used for diving.} The most popular dual and solo engine planes for skydivers are the Havilland Canada DHC-6-Twin Otter, and the Pacific Aerospace PAC P-750 XSTOL, respectively. Whether piston-powered or turbine-powered, aircraft optimized for skydivers have large doors. Turbine and piston-powered planes are separated by a key difference: turbine planes are lightweight and use their fuel more efficiently. While they provide a similar horsepower as a traditional piston engine, crafts with turbine engines are typically more expensive.
