Skydiving is also called Parachuting. This type of Extreme Sport involves jumping from a plane or a flying vehicle through the use of a parachute. It may or may not involve free falling – the time when the parachute has not been deployed and the body increases to terminal terminal velocity.

The first person to make successful skydives or jumps was Andre-Jacques Garnerin. Garnerin used a canvas canopy and small basket when he made the jump from a hot air balloon. On the other hand,  Leslie Irvin was known to be the first intentional successful skydiver who made the first official sky jump pr sky dive in 1919.

In the military, skydiving is done as way to deploy soldiers and forest firefighters. It is also a lifesaving way to escape from a balloon or aircraft in flight during emergencies.

Skydiving can be done individually or as a group.  A number of skydivers can make the jump simultaneously  or one after the other, and experience free float together as shown in this photo.  Seven people free floating before opening their chutes.
