Today, every unique body flight position is a category or discipline of skydiving. Each category has rules for competition that can be judged. To compete at the highest levels within each discipline requires training in the wind tunnel.
The luxury of indoor skydive training is it is more time efficient (no riding in the airplane to altitude, no need to pack parachutes). Teams are able to fly together for two minutes (this is the equivalent of two skydives. A skydive usually lasts for one minute). Step out of the tunnel, review their technique with a coach and step back into the tunnel. This controlled environment increases the learning curve dramatically!
On our way to the US Open we passed the indoor skydiving facility. The next day was my husbands 71st birthday and he decided that's what he wanted to do for his birthday. It was for us to do together...., I was apprehensive but far be it for me to spoil his birthday. I read all your reviews and checked their safety first. What a pleasant surprise. I loved it. It is for all ages and better then jumping out of an airplane.... Just plain fun!!!
