Tandem Skydiving Facts

Skydiving is one of the greatest adventures and is one of the main items on peoples bucket lists. I thought it would be interesting to go over some fun and strange facts about skydiving with all of you.

  • The highest jump was made by Alan Eustace on October 24, 2014. He jumped from a height of 135,890 feet. This jump took place in Roswell, New Mexico. A place also known for many U.F.O. sightings. There has not been a report of Mr Eustace seeing any aliens while in free fall.
  • Approximately 500,000 people make a skydive each year. That sounds like a lot of people, but when the population of the world is now 7 billion, it is not that many.
  • There are 332 Skydiving schools in the United States. California has the most schools with a count of 27.DCIM100GOPRO
