1. What kind of parachutes do you use?
Ans. Brand New Sigma parachutes
2. What if the parachute does not open?
Ans. Well! We do come across this query all the time. And after a lot of technical introspection, we discovered the most obvious answer to be a very adverse and discouraging one. Moreover, we should not forget that you are going up with 2 parachutes, one the Main canopy and the other is the Reserve. So there are ways and means to deal with such a situation. Apart from this, all other emergencies are given considerable attention too. And as much as we, as Sky divers across the Globe have worked to make it one of the safest sports in the world, yet every single Emergency is explained with detail and the Drills and procedures for handling such situations are clearly taken care of during the Ground training under simulated environments.

14. How much difficult is landing? What preparation one need to take while landing?
Landing is one of the most beautiful moments during the entire Sky diving experience. Imagine yourself to be a royal bird with your wings spread out as you approach the landing area. You have just returned from where the Eagles dare, you’ve conquered your fear of height and flight, and you’ve tasted what only a handful of humans on this earth have…. We prepare every jumper for a safe jump and we have Radio control devices attached to them so that they can be thoroughly guided and controlled throughout their entire flight. It plays a very vital role to ensure a smooth and soft landing.
