Manaus is the capital city of the state of Amazonas. It is situated at the confluence of the Negro and Solimões rivers. Located in the middle of the Amazon rainforest, its access to the city is primarily through boat or airplane. This isolation helps in preserving both the nature as well as the culture of the city. Maunas is also a seat venue, hosting some of the football matches for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
- ABOUT THE SPOT
Skydiving in Biloxi, Harrison County, Mississippi USA
Most excitement seekers would like to have at least one free fall in their life. Imagine getting the thrill of flying over the picturesque Biloxi, watching the wonderful white sand beaches from above, while waiting to take your first or 1000 leap – yes the feeling is the same if you jump for the first time or the 1000.
Before starting your adventure, you will have a 30-35 minute preparation class. After being taught all the basic information for this exciting experience, you get on a plane and that’s when thrill begins. While flying to an altitude of 3048 m/10000 ft – 4267.2 m/14000 ft and before the doors open, you will be harnessed to your professional instructor. Once you hear the three- two-one countdown, just jump and you will be free falling for 40-60 seconds at a speed of 193 kph / 120 mph, equivalent to 60.96 m/200 ft per second!
When at 1524 m/5000 ft, your instructor will pull the rip cord and your shoot will deploy. Float in the sky, walk on the clouds and slowly descend back to the surface, admiring the most amazing views that Biloxi has to offer! All landing locations have a spectators area, where your friends and family can see you land. Just keep in mind that some locations are open during the spring and summer season and closed during the fall and winter.
So, contact one of the schools that have a network dropzone serving Biloxi and get ready to dive into the gap!!!
