80 Year Old Grandmother Sky Dives on Her Birthday!
We've seen that story and most found it amusing!  Why would an elderly woman suddenly choose to risk her life in this manner?  Maybe she's becoming demented or just appears to have a stranger wish?  Well you'd be astonished to learn that she really is fulfilling a lifelong dream.  A wish she's that is being fulfilled by her loved ones because she asked it.  For Granny is gonna fly !

For the thrill of a lifetime try skydiving!

Skydiving or parachuting is one of the most exhilarating experiences a person can ever have and no matter the era, may be enjoyed safely with a teacher who's experienced and well trained.  That first jump will be in tandem, which is to say the new jumper is going to be connected to the instructor so they can safely make their free fall experience a memorable and secure one.  Before anybody makes that first leap however there will be a little "classroom" preparation and training.  Simply jumping from an airplane is only one small part of the actual sky dive because you also must learn how to property.  While the pre-jump instruction lesson is brief, it is vital to the sky diver's security and attention to details must be maintained.  It'll be difficult to remember all that's been told to the first time jumper when they depart the airplane for the very first time because they'll be 1) scared silly!  Two ) and completely in awe of what they're witnessing!

Allow the instructor be your guide for a secure and exciting first leap
Jumping in tandem with your instructor is the safest and most stress free way of making that first sky diving experience a memorable and happy one.  Some will not go beyond that one single jump and will gladly keep that memory with them eternally.  However those who move on to become experienced sky divers will find they could combine groups that make it quite a fun social time.  Jumpers get together on weekends for group jumps and travel to exotic places to generate their sky dive even more memorable.  After the fundamentals are learned divers can move on to more challenging and entertaining ways to jump involving accelerated kinds of free fall in which they control the pace of their descent.
Why jump out of a perfectly good airplane?

Ever since the creation of the airplane guy has chosen to leap out of them as a way of getting to places that would otherwise be difficult to achieve or require an overly long amount of time to achieve.  Paratroopers jump from planes and helicopters to get "boots on the ground" quickly.  Now we see fire fighters jumping to get ahead of forest fires so as to beat them back and rescue homes.    No matter the reasons skydiving is a hugely popular game and pastime enjoyed by millions each day somewhere on this planet.
