The basics of base jumping Rules of the Air BASE jumping is an off shoot from the adrenaline pumping sport, Parachuting. It differs in that the height at which the BASE jumper takes his leap is much shorter. Between the time the jumper steps off the launch point to the time he throws the hand-held pilot chute is only three seconds. The shortest three seconds of the Base Jumpers life.

BASE Jumping ETHICS Equipment Overview - With all that Out of the Way... This is being made difficult mainly by uninformed authorities. However it is the irresponsible jumper that has had the greatest affect on giving BASE a negative image.
BASE is not for everyone. If you are considering making a BASE jump, make sure you"re ready to accept its inherent risks. If your motivation to jump comes from a strong attraction to it, fine. If you"re trying to impress someone or prove something, don"t do it.

Expedition Information
Angel Falls is the tallest waterfall in the world. The 3,212 foot-tall waterfall is located in the remote Venezuelan jungle. This beautiful area is a Venezuelan National Park. This seven-day adventure is organized by Tom Sanders with the assistance of the local Venezuelan BASE jumpers. The trip to and from Angel Falls is an adventure in itself, with jet flights, helicopter flights and a jungle boat trip that will put us at the base of Angel Falls. We will have a helicopter on location to fly us to the top of Angel Falls for legal BASE jumps! Two days are set aside for jumping (weather permitting), and with the helicopter, it only takes about three to four hours for everyone to get their jump. Non-jumpers are welcome. This expedition is the Twelfth for Tom Sanders, who will be documenting the entire journey with stills, video and 16 mm movies. Each participant will be provided stills of their jump and a video of the trip. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own still and video cameras - for non commercial uses - however all commercial rights belong to Aerial Focus.
The seven-day trip includes the following:
- VIP attention by our Venezuelan hosts from arrival to departure thru Caracas Venezuela. This includes all travel arrangements, luggage transfers, hotel, food, soft drinks, (alcoholic beverages are extra) equipment and supplies, with everything brought to the remote jungle location by our guides.

BASE jumping
Word: Word Starts with Ends with Definition BASE jumping is the sport of using a parachute A parachute is a device used to slow the descent of a falling body or load. The word parachute comes from the French words para , protect or shield, and chute , to fall. Therefore parachute actually means to protect from a fall . Parachutes were once made from silk but these days are almost always constructed from more durable woven nylon fabrics
Parachute History
Parachutes have long been used by military and space programs around the world. The first parachute jumps were from hot air balloons in the early 1800s. The very first parachute was linen, but silk was soon adopted because of its strength and light weight. On March 1, 1912, US Army Captain Albert Berry made the first parachute jump from a moving airplane over Missouri.

If you're a skydiver, you'll already know how addictive adrenaline is and just how attractive gravity is, so you won't want to miss the opportunity to have a quick jump while you're here on holiday. We have clubs in the major centres and in even some unexpected little places like Grahamstown and Pietermaritzburg. The biggest club in the country is Pretoria Skydiving Club which is your best bet if you want to get involved in some big RW. They fly two Pilatus Porters, so 20-way formations are a very real possibility. And if you've never skydived, you should seriously consider doing your first jump here. Two reasons. The first is that, with our favourable exchange rate, you'll find it a lot cheaper than at home. You could choose between a standard static line jump or a tandem jump, where you are tied to an instructor who makes all the decisions for you. If you think you might get serious about skydiving you could do an accelerated free-fall course while you're here and save a bit of money, as it is the most expensive part of your skydiving career. The second reason, of course, is the scenery. Even if it's your first jump and you think you'll have your eyes closed the whole time, don't worry, you will see the view. Many drop zones are in very pretty locations and hey, this is a bonus, do a tandem (or single) jump in Cape Town and get a pic of yourself hurtling earthwards in front of Table Mountain. That would look pretty good on your desk (or desktop) when you get back to the office.

    BASE jumping injuries and treatment in the field
    Posted Sunday, July 27, 2003 By Dexterbase You just landed after throwing a double gainer from a cliff in Moab. Adrenaline surges through your system as you think of the amazing visuals you just saw. As you gather up your canopy, you pause to watch the next jumper exit. After a short delay, he tosses his pilot chute and the canopy deploys offheading. He takes evasive measures but the strikes the wall repeatedly. After finally getting the canopy turned away from the cliff, he lands hard on the talus and tumbles to a stop thirty feet below and doesn't move… Now the real adrenaline kicks in. What do you do?

      There are as many different ways of getting started BASE jumping as there are jumpers. But, after some soul-searching, some discussion with friends, and some internet research, I've decided that the course I wish I had followed, and the one I've tried to set people on, goes something like this.

    [vote for against Take a 200m high tower, VR glasses and have a turbine fan (the kind skydivers use to train on) at the bottom blowing air up. Have a platform at the top that you can jump off and computers that can track your movement down the tower. Have vents that can bleed off the air so at the top theres relatively little wind. As you get towards the bottom the updraught will be enough to keep you stable and the computers can simulate cliffs/ space voyages, anything really going past at 200km/h + just meters away. You'd probably have to be strapped into a brace to keep you in the freefall position to make sure that you didn't hit the sides but if it's done right, the acceleration forces would be almost indiscernible to the real thing. The brace could even automatically spin you around as the view on the VR glasses changes. sporn , Nov 16 2003 Freefall Simulator http://www.skydivew...freeflight/sim.html
