For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, which is why every time a human attempts to fly, a bird attempts to drive a stick shift. Engage in one of the primary mandates of physics with this Groupon.
$143 for a Tandem Skydiving Jump from 14,000 Feet ($239 Value)
After a 30-minute training session, a specialty aircraft elevates flyers to more than 2 miles above sea level. Strapped together, instructors and divers jump from the aircraft and spend approximately one minute plunging at up to 120 mph before their parachute opens. Customers have the opportunity to steer the canopy and practice their eagle cries during a five-minute descent toward the landing area.
Midwest Freefall Sport Parachute Club
A nonprofit organization, Midwest Freefall Sport Parachute Club aims to instill a love for skydiving in each person who steps into its 17-place Jet-Prop Cessna Grand Caravan, which elevates jumpers to more than 13,000 feet above the southeast Michigan countryside. Tandem jumps allow thrill-seekers to harvest cotton candy from clouds as seasoned instructors take care of dive essentials, including parachute deployment. For those who want to learn more, seven levels of free-fall training transform novices into experienced jumpers who can take solo dives. Before their second jump, skydivers become members of Midwest's club, which hosts social gatherings that debate the merits of traveling down stairs by parachute. Midwest Freefall Sport Parachute Club embraces the standards and procedures established by the United States Parachute Association to help ensure safety during all of its dives.
