41. What Is Base Jumping
What is base jumping? It No! In fact, base jumping has less in common with the sport of skydiving than it would appear. Skydiving
What is Base Jumping? It has to be one of the most powerful experiences ever. You are standing on the edge of a deep and forbidding chasm that seductively draws you in. Vertigo nests solidly in the pit of your stomach but your spirit soars. The tension is unbearable, your heart goes apeshit and liquid energy courses through your veins. You become detached from the real world, extraneous information around you disappears and time stands still. It's quiet - very, very quiet. Ready, set, go! You step out into the void that is deep, beautiful and calm. Euphoric shock warps time and you can't believe what you are seeing as your surroundings gain momentum and the wind starts to roar in your ears. You know that the longer you hold out before deploying your parachute the more incredible the experience will be but those last moments become eternally long as the ground rushes up at you. Faster, faster, faster, the energy builds, ignites and explodes within. Seconds from impact. Groundrush! Not yet, not yet, NOW! You fire the pilot chute, the canopy crashes open, the earth stands still and reality floods back. BASE is an acronym for Building, Antenna, Span (bridges) and Earth (cliffs) and what the practitioners of this sport do is jump off said objects with parachutes on their backs. BASE jumpers are a fringe of a fringe, a loose, far-flung affiliation of deviants and mavericks that span the globe. Any object tall enough is fair game. Unfinished high-rise buildings are a favourite - they have multiple points of entry, minimal security and no windows. Antennas are usually very high and remote so there's less chance of being bust by the anti-fun police. Bridges have easy access and are clear below so there's no chance of striking the structure as the parachute opens, and vertical cliff faces on a scale large enough to jump off are absolutely breathtaking. Well-known landmarks are irresistible. The Eiffel Tower, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and the Table Mountain Cable Car are but a few of the better-known landmarks that have been jumped from.

Dictionary Definition of BASE jumping

BASE jumping is the sport of using a parachute to jump from fixed objects. "BASE" is an acronym that stands for the four categories of objects from which one can jump; (B) uilding, (A) ntenna, (S) pan (the word used for a bridge), and (E) arth (the word used for a cliff). BASE jumps are generally from much lower height than a traditional airplane parachute jump, although there are notable exceptions. In the United States, an "advanced" skydiver (over 100 airplane skydives) is recommended, on an airplane jump, to deploy the main parachute no lower than 2,000 feet. At that time, if the airplane jumper had already been in freefall for at least 1,000 feet, the jumper is traveling 120 miles per hour, and is 11 seconds from the ground. Some BASE jumps, very high cliffs, can be from heights of over 5,000 feet, though these are rare. Most BASE jumps are made from less than 1,000 feet. A BASE jump from a 500 foot object is about 6 seconds from the ground. At these lower heights, it is not recommended to use airplane

BASE Jumping
B.A.S.E. jumping, or fixed object jumping is the ultimate in extreme sports. It is an acronym that stands for BUILDING / ANTENNA / SPAN / EARTH. It is a sport that is truly considered EXTREME by every measure of the word.
The sport takes the skills learned from skydiving and uses them to jump from fixed objects such as buildings, bridges, antennas and cliffs. Although the equipment of todays BASE jumper is custom-made to meet the demanding environment of the sport, the parachutes of BASE and skydiving look very much the same. Special equipment and modifications allow jumpers to safely exit from objects as low as 300 feet (or lower) and land without injury. Freefalls can last anywhere from one second to over 20 seconds, depending on the height of the object. It is truly an amazing sight to watch a BASE jumper exit from a high mountain peak and fly his or her body far from the mountains jagged walls and open their parachutes safely, several thousand feet below. Aerial Extreme has participated in this remarkable sport for several years and has captured on video the deep emotions and raw power these jumpers feel while making a BASE jump.

    Slovakopedia Stefan Banic The Inventor of the Parachute and BASE Jumping
    ©tefan Baniè 1870-1941
    Stefan Banic, a Slovak inventor, constructed a prototype of a parachute in 1913 and tested it in Washington D.C. in front of the U.S. Patent Office and military representatives by jumping from a 41-floor building and subsequently from an airplane in 1914. His patented parachute became a standard equipment for U.S. pilots during the World War I. Banic worked in the United States from 1907 to 1921, with two interruptions. His name is not well-known, however, the Patent Office and military records confirm these historical facts, as you can also see, if you visit various Air Force ( and government (.gov) sites. In some sources his first name appears in the English form Stephen . The Slovak spelling is ©tefan Baniè , written with diacritical marks in CEE character set (Latin-2), the Slovak pronunciation is approximately Shteffun Bunnich Stefan Banic was born on November 23, 1870 in
