The Ultimate Rush
After you've been briefed and harnessed, you'll climb into an airplane for a scenic flight with views of the LA skyline, the Channel Islands, and long stretches of sandy coast. Then, the big moment: You and your instructor will leap into the great wide open for an epic dive, open your parachute at 5,000 feet, and float peacefully for another seven minutes while the on-board video camera captures it all.
