Anyone who has jitters about their jump can just ask the more than 56,000 people who've experienced their first skydive with the staff of Parachute School of Toronto. They'll most likely discover that the seasoned instructors there are more than adept at reducing the nervousness of newbies. These skydive gurus do everything they can to put jumpers at ease before leading a training session designed to not only calm stomach butterflies, but cover all the basics.
Once students are confident, they can make a tandem jump attached to an instructor from 13,500 feet, depending on conditions. After exiting the aircraft, skydivers will reach speeds of up to 200km per hour—otherwise known as warp speed for birds—before safely descending to the landing zone below via parachute.
