Skydiving Portland

Not everyone knows what skydiving is yet. Diving into the sky (this is the translation of the name of this sport from English) united brave athletes, whose competitions always attract a huge number of spectators.
At the dawn of parachuting, only the most courageous dared to jump out of the plane from a small, by modern standards, height.

For thrill-seekers these days, a short flight with a canopy opening at a great distance from the ground does not seem extreme enough. Athletes tried to prolong the vaping as long as possible, while performing various acrobatic exercises. Thus, a new kind of sport was born, competitions in which gather a huge number of spectators.

The new sport has attracted the attention of many extreme sportsmen, but to become a skydiver, you need to make a lot of effort and money, as well as to have good health and an excellent response. First, you should enroll in a parachute club, without mastering all the intricacies of ordinary jumps, it is impossible to start a prolonged free soaring.

Exercises in the sky are preceded by training in a wind tunnel. In artificially created ascending air currents, the athlete is not limited by time and can learn to control his body in zero gravity without haste. Only after all movements have been worked out on the simulator, the instructor will allow the student to jump from the plane.

Want to feel the feeling of free fall and an adrenaline rush, but jumping from an airplane seems too risky for you? The aerodynamic tunnel at the Skydive Portland will allow you to do this safely and under the supervision of an instructor.
