Experience Skydiving in Canada
Skydiving always starts out as a nice idea, and usually doesn't develop past that. It always seems like fun in your daydream, but then reality sets in and before you can breathe, you've already changed your mind. If you dare to experience this free-falling thrill, you may not even realize what you're doing until you actually step out of that plane and feel yourself fall with the wind. Standing in the doorway, you feel secure as your feet seem firmly planted on the ground. The equipment on your back weighs you down and it seems like free falling into sky isn't something that could realistically happen. Then you lower your goggles, the instructor gives you the signal to jump, you take a deep breath, then you jump into a world of heart-racing free-falling adventure and rely on nothing but your parachute to land you safely on the ground.
Canada is a beautiful country to explore all its own, regardless if you are planning to skydive. Canada is full of countryside lakes, glorious mountains, and rolling hills that seems to stretch on forever. Imagine viewing these amazing natural sights from thousands of feet in the air. A chance like that is definitely once in a lifetime, so if you're given the opportunity to skydive in Canada, you should jump on it immediately. One skydiving facility in Canada is Skydive Burnaby located in Ontario.
This facility provides one-on-one instruction in tandem skydiving, which is the jump of choice for first time skydivers. You will receive classroom instruction where you will learn how to operate the equipment, communicate using hand signals with your instructor, and discuss landing techniques. If you choose to do so, you can pull the ripcord yourself or have your instructor do the honors. You can also catch this amazing experience on film by having your jump taped by a professional aerial videographer. For the experienced skydiver, Skydive Burnaby offers accelerated freefall (AFF) jumps along with the opportunity to jump in formations with other skydivers. Another wonderful facility in Canada is Skydive SWOOP located in downtown Toronto. This facility offers instruction in the three main types of skydive jumps: AFF, Static Line, and Tandem. The static line jumps allows you to jump solo on the first time while your parachute is opened by your jumpmaster aboard the aircraft. Skydive SWOOP offers many amenities in addition to skydiving, including on-site restaurants, gift shops, and a prestigious camping ground facility complete with hot showers. There is no greater thrill than experiencing the feel of wind rushing through your body at 120 mph - and there's no greater place to experience it than Canada! A simple search of the internet will provide you a comprehensive listing of all skydiving facilities located in this country along with their rates and travel information.
And don't forget to capture it all on film; this is something you will want to show your friends and family for years to come! .
