ABOUT OUR PARACHUTE TOUR IN RESENDE
Parachute is an extreme sport that consists in leaving a plane during the flight and returning to earth with gravity and protective equipment help, using a parachute to slow speed during the last part of descent. Our prachute jumps in Rio involve a certain amount of free fall.
Our tour happens in Resende city, which is 2 hours away (120 km) from Rio de Janeiro city. Its population is 124.316 inhabitants, and it is an important industrial, automotive, metallurgical and tourist center, and headquarters of the second largest military complex in the world (The Military Academy of Agulhas Negras - AMAN). The county has national importance and houses Brazilian Nuclear Fuels Factory complex, the only one capable of enriching uranium.
Before jumping, the instructor will talk about safety procedures with the passenger, so it is important to pay close attention to his advice on position and behavior during free-fall and before landing. After the jump, just relax and enjoy the free fall for as long as you can, as it lasts about 45 seconds. The fall occurs from an altitude of 4.000 meters (13.120 feet) and the view around is breathtaking, as immersion is absolute. The maximum speed you can reach is up to 200 km/h (125 miles per hour). No prior experience is required.
A LITTLE OF PARACHUTING HISTORY IN THE WORLD
History says that parachuting began with André-Jacques Garnerin, born on January 31, 1.769. In the French capital. He made the first parachute jump, with his invention, on October 22, 1.797, on Monceau park, in Paris, France. Accompanied by the crowd, the Frenchman got 1.000 meters down and touched the ground, but with some difficulty. However, the first real freefall jump with an unfolded operation is credited to Leslie Irvin in 1.919. First competitions happen in the 1930s, and the sport became international in 1.952.
