What Does Skydiving Feel Like?

Do you feel your stomach drop when you skydive?

You won’t experience a feeling of falling, you’ll feel more like you are flying!

If skydiving from a hot air balloon, your stomach would certainly drop as you accelerate from 0mph to 120mph.

Your stomach will not drop when you jump from the plane!

You will, however, feel completely exhilarated by the experience.

What is it like to skydive for the first time?

The day of your first skydive will probably feel a bit like a whirlwind. You’ll experience new emotions and energy, which may make some things harder to remember. The skydive happens fast – a few minutes in the plane, freefall, parachute ride, and before you know it, you are back on the ground.

Is skydiving the same feeling as a roller coaster?

That feeling in your stomach that you get as the roller coaster tips over a peak, for example, is pretty similar to the feeling you’ll get as you fall out of the airplane. While a roller coaster is designed to push your body to its limits, skydiving is a much smoother, much freer experience.

Can you breathe when you skydive?

Can you breathe while skydiving? The answer is yes, you can! Even in freefall, falling at speeds up to 160mph, you can easily get plenty of oxygen to breathe. Yes, your first skydive will take your breath away – but not literally!
