A friend of mine recently did a charity sponsored tandem parachute and hasn't done anything since. I was fascinated by his sudden love for jumping off planes and I decided to find out more about him. Here is my short guide to the different types of parachute options available to beginners like me. You can also take skydive classes inThailand.
If this is your first time skydiving, tandem diving may be for you. Tandem diving is perfect for beginners who want to increase their confidence as you bond with a qualified tandem instructor who will control the descent of the parachute so you can immediately enjoy the thrill of riding a horse. The instructions are also relatively short, usually about half an hour. So if you want to do scuba diving quickly and easily, this may be the best option for you.
Do you think the idea of jumping ahead of a 14,000 foot plane is a little scary? Indoor parachuting is the only way to experience the thrill of diving in the sky without having to get on a plane. Indoor parachuting takes place in a vertical wind tunnel that lifts you a few feet off the ground and makes you feel like you're falling free at 120 miles per hour.
There is a short pre-flight workout, but the main objective is to avoid hitting the wall and thus get the most of the experience. Indoor parachuting is great for beginners looking to boost their confidence and can be used by almost any age.
