Transcript of Skydiving

Skydiving

what it is?
Is a type of skydiving where a student skydiver is connected to a harness attached to a tandem instructor.In the United States you have to be 18 years or older to skydive whereas in other countries the minimum age can be lower or higher.
Equipment
It requires equipment with several differences from normal sport skydiving rigs. All modern tandem skydiving systems use a drogue parachute, which is deployed shortly after leaving the plane in order to decrease the skydivers' terminal velocity. This is necessary for proper parachute deployment, lengthening the duration of the skydive, and allowing the skydivers to fall at the same speed as videographers.
