But the real question is have you ever wondered the speed you go through and what does it really feel like, you must be questioning how much time it will take to come down from the top is you choose to skydive from different heights.
If we talk about the time, the average speed when you drop is 200 feet per second, and if you will calculate the time taken it varies from different height, when you skydive from the height of 10,000 feet you will be free falling for 30 sec approximately, if the same height is increased to 14,000 feet you will be experiencing the freefall for 60 sec the highest tandem skydive that is from 18,000 free-falling will take around 90 sec Approximately. After that, the parachute ride takes around 4 to 5 min to the ground. Also, there are seral factors that may influence the time takes, for example, the altitude, weight, and equipment which have been used. Another factor can be the solo skydiving which reduces the time taken by some seconds.
Diving from 18,000 feet
