How Long Will You Fall When Sky Diving

skydiving fall

This is an often asked question from people who consider doing their first jump. The short answer is it depends. It depends most on the freefall distance, i.e. the difference between the exit altitude and the deploy altitude. In addition to the distance the freefall time depends on your body and equipment.

But wait, I know you prefer some numbers. At the time of writing this in our skydiving logbook we have 57 jumps recorded. The average freefall time of our members is

54 seconds

You can assume there will be no huge differences in your jumps too. Right now the longest freefall time of our members is 78 seconds.
