Skydiving, also known as Parachuting, is an established adventure sport around the world. This is one of the most thrilling sports in the world. Skydiving can be done individually and with groups of people. Parachute is a way to jump from any high point and escent using a parachute. You can jump from different places like from a plane, mountain, hot air balloon etc.

The sport traces its beginnings to the descents made from a hot- air balloon by the French aeronaut André-Jacques Garnerin in 1797, but modern skydiving is generally performed from a propeller- driven plane. At events similar as the annual World FreeFall Convention in Quincy, Illinois, still, parachutists are afforded the opportunity to jump from similar diverse craft as hot- air balloons, helicopters, and a Boeing 727.

Historical Origins of Skydiving

Skydiving is an older extreme sport that has been around since the end of the 18th century with the first parachute jump in 1797. The main idea of skydiving is to free- fall until a certain altitude from an aircraft or a mountain, fly about 30 to 180 seconds, and then gradually float in the air until you land on safe ground with a parachute. Since 1797, the sport has come a long way of incredible technological improvements and became a worldwide attraction.

When is the Best Time for Skydiving?

Skydiving is possible and fun in every season in various parts of the world. Winters can be a bit more challenging since advanced mounds are important colder than the ground temperature. There are beautiful sceneries in every time of the year, but truly, much of these sceneries depend on the location, making skydiving a unique experience to the part of the world you try it. 

You can have a spectacular skydiving experience in Dubai accompanied by clear skies and endless Arabian Gulf or in Kayseri with an amazing snowy mountain in the background during the winter. The best time for skydiving during the day is generally in the mornings. The sun is much more forgiving and keen to participate in these spectacular sceneries in the morning, compared to hot and bright afternoons.
