The idea of jumping out of a plane might seem terrifying to many people, especially those that are afraid of heights. However, thousands of people in the UK not only try skydiving, but do it again and again.

Part of this fantastic experience that comes along with flying across the sky is the confidence and adrenaline rush that goes along with attempting an extreme sport. Plus you don't have to suffer through months of physical training to go skydiving, you just have to take a deep breath and commit to trying it.
