Indoor Skydiving in Sydney:

Want the feeling of freefalling without having to ACTUALLY go up in the plane? Try indoor skydiving. You’ll gear up in a helmet, goggles and jumpsuit before feeling the force of the winds in a vertical wind tunnel chamber. These powerful winds hold you in the air, giving the effect of freefalling.

Skydiving solo in Sydney:

You can not skydive solo until you have completed the AFF (Accelerated Freefall Course) stage 1 course. Most skydiving centres run these courses which include ground training and classroom work before jumping wearing your own parachute with two skydiving instructors either side of you. You can then progress to stages 2-9 and even go on to acquire your A-Licence Full Solo Course.


Q&A with someone who has skydived:

We asked adrenaline junkie Shirley Liu some burning questions about skydiving - and she told us everything we’ve always wanted to know.

  • What's the scariest part of the experience?

The scariest part is when you've spent about five minutes on the plane and you've realised what you've committed to – there is no backing out now.

  • Did you feel safe throughout?

Yes, I did. Everyone goes through individual checks to ensure your harness is put on correctly. You're also attached to a professional skydiver who skydives as their full time job – that probably made me feel most safe.

  • What is the view like/do you remember it fully?

The view is nothing short of amazing – though I think the location really matters in this case. I skydived right next to the beach, so all you could see was the beautiful beach and the mountains right next to it. I still remember it fully. When you initially drop you actually spin for a bit, so you get a full, 360 degree view in a matter of seconds.

  • Which part did you enjoy the most?

The first couple of seconds when you drop – you can try and scream but you're dropping so fast that you can't even hear yourself. It's completely free-fall so your stomach drops and the adrenaline is rushing.

  • Was it particularly cold?

It was, but you're wearing skydiving gear so it keeps you warm. You also wear goggles so to protect your eyes from the wind.

  • Is landing difficult?

Not at all, I actually landed on my feet. Some of friends landed on their butts but it wasn't painful.

  • Would you do it again?

Yes! I'd love to try a different location.

  • Anything else you'd like to share?

The location you choose really matters – aim for a view you know you'll enjoy. Also, in most cases the base cost of your ticket only covers the skydiving. So if you want photos and videos, you usually need to pay extra. In my case, I opted for the video and took screenshots as photos. You'll love it! It's an experience you won't forget, promise!
