What if I'm afraid of heights?
Many people are hesitant to skydive due to their personal fear or discomfort of heights.A skydiving experience does not equate to being at the top of a ladder, bridge or building. You are simply too high up to have any height induced vertigo or dizziness.You will be over two miles up. An individual would no more encounter a fear of heights during skydiving than when flying in a jet airliner.
How fast will I be falling?
Free fall speeds are approximately 120 MPH. Please note that this can increase or decrease slightly depending on body size and position.
Can you breathe in freefall?
The free fall and parachute environments do not cause any difficulty in breathing, however, some students have commented that it was awkward to breathe during the first few seconds. This is not caused by lack of oxygen, but by the surge of adrenaline and excitement of first jumping out of the aircraft.
