A fear of heights can often be confused with a natural and healthy respect for the inherent dangers of high places. This respect is necessary and essential to survival. Skydiving is an amazing experience and something that should not be passed up. Making a tandem skydive is a once in a lifetime adventure for most people. If you are skydiving for one time in your life, choose an area that will give you a great view. The vast majority of people choose to make a tandem jump. This involves jumping out of the plane while attached via a harness to an instructor who wears a parachute big enough for both of you. It requires very little training and you can just “sit back and enjoy the ride” while the instructor handles all the technical parts of the skydive.
