Is skydiving scary, what are the chances of parachute malfunction?
ok, im supposed to be going for my first ever skydive in a couple of weeks, and im wondering is it going to be scary, am i going to crap my pants?
i dont have an issue with heights, and im an adrenaline junkie. so its strange that im hesitant about this.
also, i have a real distrust for things i have no controll over, such as a parachute malfunction. does anyone know how common an incident like that would occur?
Just make sure you go before you get in the plane. Skydiving is one of the most intense and fun things I have ever done.
The chance that the main chute will not deploy correctly is around is.025% the chance both fail is .000025%. This makes it about 30,000 times more likely to die driving to the drop zone than while jumping
