You board the aircraft with your instructor and climb to jump altitude (11,000 feet ASL), from where you will launch your skydive! Within seconds you reach speeds of over 120 miles per hour in freefall. 30 seconds later, at five thousand feet, you feel the gentle tug of the canopy opening. The next 5 to 10 minutes you float through the sky. You will see the Snow-capped peaks of the Monashee Mountain range to the East and the Okanagan floating bridge, in Kelowna.
