How To Identify Good Parachuting In Melbourne
by: Martin Sejas

Most skydivers are new to the sport. It's the kind of thing that often gets tried once, just for the hell of it. Once it's ticked off your list, you can get on with your life. There are a number of things for the newcomer that should be looked into, however. Of course, safety is one of these. If nothing else, it allows you to relax a little on your way down. No, there are a number of things worth checking, just so you have a little more fun.

You will most likely want to make a few safety checks on the centre, which is definitely prudent. This will just give you a little more peace of mind, more than anything else.

Really, the only checks you need to make before you start phoning or emailing around are to the parachuting safety body you most respect. This could include the Parachute Federation Association, or the Civil Aviation Authority. You will be able to get a better idea of the seriousness with which any given centre shows to safety.

The second real concern is how many people are going to be jumping. This has an impact on a number of things. The first being that obviously, if you’re parachuting in Melbourne, you’re going to need a place that owns a plane in Melbourne. This may seem silly to think, but you’d be surprised how many are lacking on the plane front. You will then have to identify exactly how many will fit in that plane safely. Do you want to jump all together, or slightly staggered so that you can wind your friends up a little before they go. Whatever you decide, you need to know how big the plane is that you will be jumping from.

You may also wish to think about the on-site facilities. Are there showers, bars, social areas and dorms? If they have all these things, you may want to make a weekend of it. If not, you won’t even have the opportunity to should you decide to. If you’re parachuting in Melbourne, you’ll need to take into account this kind of social aspect. Even if you are jumping alone.

Likewise, you will want to think about the height you will be jumping from. Exactly what experience will you be getting. How many of you will be jumping? One or two? Cloud jumping is becoming more and more popular. Are you likely to be doing that?

If you plan your parachuting in Melbourne a little more, you will no doubt get more out of it. After all it is a once in a lifetime experience for most.
