The Experience 

Using the British Parachute Association Ram-Air Progression System (RAPS), over two days you will learn all the necessary techniques to jump safely from an altitude of over 3000 feet, with a parachute that automatically opens.
You will leave the aircraft from around 3,200 feet and the ram-air canopy is activated automatically by a static line. Now test your skill and judgement in guiding the wing to the correct landing area before trying your hand at landing like the experts. Don't forget to enjoy the view, you can see for miles on a clear day! Throughout your jump you will be in radio contact with your instructor who will guide you to soft landing.

Solo Parachute Course: Fascinating Facts

Evidence found in the historical archives of Peking in China indicates that parachute-like devices were used as early as the 12th century. Stories relate that some form of parachute was used during circus-type stunts and the relation between the umbrella also invented by the Chinese, and this early device appears obvious. The first known pictorial evidence of a parachute appeared in the sketchbook of Leonardo da Vinci in 1514. The device pictured was a pyramid shaped structure that allowed a man to leap from a tower or burning building without greatly endangering his life. In the 18th century the Frenchman, Joseph Montgolfier, along with his experiments on hot-air balloons became interested in the concept of parachute-like devices. However it was in the late 19th century that the modern concept of parachuting was developed when in 1890 Paul Letteman and Kaethe Paulus, German exhibition jumpers, demonstrated the first use of parachutes folded and packed in bags. In 1911 American Grant Morton was the first man to jump by parachute from an aeroplane. Since that jump, the parachute has developed into a sophisticated military vehicle as well as an object of sport for many enthusiasts, and improvements in design are constantly increasing the fun of parachuting.
