Parachuting, which can also be known as Skydiving, is the extreme sport that involves exiting an aircraft or jumping off of a tall building, and returning to earth with the help of a parachute! Skydiving will usually involve a certain amount of free-fall.
A Skydive is ideal for individuals or groups and particpants will exit an aeroplane at between 1,000 and 4,000 meters (3,000 to 13,000 feet) altitude. The lower the particpant jumps the quicker the parachute is deployed, however, at greater heights, the diver may free fall for a minute or so and will then "pull" the parachute to slow the landing down to a safe speed. In fact, usually the landing is made without even falling!
