It may seem like one jump and landing, but there is a lot more to skydiving. There are different types of skydiving in India, and each provides you with bigger and better excitement.

The only time your body can feel lighter than a feather is when you fall through the air from thousands of feet above. While roller coaster rides are a combination of gravity and acceleration, skydiving totally works on the magic of gravity. It is something that you cannot experience anywhere on the earth.

A tandem jump is a more secured alternative to skydiving in India. In this jump, you will be harnessed with a skilled tandem instructor throughout the journey. You both will leave the plane together and enjoy the free fall for a minute before the parachute opens. Your instructor will safely bring you back to the ground.

Instead of opening the parachute after the free fall, there will be a fixed line in the plane to which all the parachutes are attached. After jumping, the line pulls a cover off and releases a canopy. You might be familiar with static line skydiving from the war movies. It is the ideal method used in the military for quick and safe jumping.

Typically, skydiving in India occurs at 4,000m (12500 ft) that gives a free fall of 40-50 seconds. For a better free-fall time, you can switch to higher altitudes. You can enjoy skydiving both as an individual or a team.
