The first parachute was invented when Jack, tumbling haplessly from his titanium beanstalk, used a purloined pair of giant underpants to steady his fall. Glide to earth safely with today's Groupon: for $129, you get one tandem freefall jump from Skydive Greensburg, located at the Greensburg Municipal Airport (a $269 value). Skydivers must be at least 18 years old and weigh fewer than 235 pounds.
Skydive Greensburg introduces thrill seekers to the art of plummeting from the sky with instructor-accompanied tandem skydives from more than 2 miles above the earth. After filling out a bit of paperwork and viewing a short, soliloquy-free video, skydivers-to-be meet their personal skydiving instructor for a prejump briefing.
After suiting up, newly educated gravity fans will board an aircraft and savor a scenic ride before plunging at speeds of up to 120 mph to the ground below while securely harnessed to an instructor. At 5,000 feet, the instructor will deploy your parachute and you'll float breezily above the Indiana countryside for five minutes before gently alighting to the earth to the cheers of your ground-bound admirers. Skydive Greensburg can record each diver's date with the sky, forever capturing reactions, emotions, and four-letter words. The professionally edited video of the jump can be purchased for an additional fee.
