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.
- HOW TO GO
Skydiving in Longmont, Boulder, Colorado USA
It is an easy going community only 16 mi/25.8 km away from Boulder. Longmont is a popular place for skydiving. At 18000 ft/5486 m above the sea level, you can feel the clouds on your feet and the burning of the bright sun. There are magnificent mountains, rising to meet you to the west and vast, golden valleys, extending to the east.
It is an unforgettable experience jumping out of an airplane over Colorado’s Front Range, although it’s kind of difficult to absorb all this beauty the moment you jump. Your freefall is at 130 mph/209.2 kph. After the intense thrill of jumping in vacuum, you open your parachute and slow down into a silent serene ride, topping like a glider to landing.
If it is your first flight, don’t worry, because the pilot-passenger tandem, skydiving, freefall system will make your flight easier and safer than ever before. There are parachutes especially built for two, so you and your instructor will land safely. There are some restrictions though.
You shouldn’t be over 215 lbs/97.5 kg and you must be over 18 years old. Dress to the conditions of the day and bring your driver’s license with you. The programs are for first timers or advanced, offering the experience that fits you.
