My Skydive

Skydiving is a pure adrenaline dose. It is very safe and very unsafe at the same time. Skydiving is like meditation and it is like going to a war. When you are in a dive, you forget the past and the future, you leave all your worries behind and focus only on jump. At the same time, before going to a jump you work hard, train hard and as they say, the harder you sweat on ground the less you struggle in the air. I don’t see any other adventure as extreme as skydiving.

How I got into skydiving

If I have to go back and say how it all started, I’d say it started just like that. I was going over internet and saw a skydiving video and thought that at least one should do once in a lifetime. Then I started searching for it and got to know that it is a profession as well. I became more fascinated and searched deeper.

But all came down to one thing, money. I checked what are the places in India where one can skydive and there were none. Then I came across many Indian sites that claim that they organize skydiving in India, I contacted them but no reply. Then I started looking for prices and it came to my understanding that if I do one jump then it’ll cost me somewhere around 30k but if I do 25 jumps then it will cost me 15k per jump so I decided to go for a license course.

With all search and results I concluded that I should be going to Russia as its the cheapest place in the world to learn skydive. and Russia was not asking for vaccine certificates from Indians. That’s how I landed in Russia for my first skydiving trip
