Suddenly you are opened up to a whole new world with just one jump which launches you into flight where you can do all sorts of fun things. Discover how the sport of skydiving developed at the end of Second World War and how it has become a sport for people who are thrill seekers, wanting to have the ultimate adrenaline rush.

You will learn how, as you become more skilled, you will be able to jump with new and best friends, which is the greatest feeling in the world, especially as you make each jump a little more action packed and challenging. These days, skydiving is the fun form of parachuting done from a plane or sometimes a helicopter which takes off from a small airbase known as a drop zone. Skydivers usually exit the aircraft at a height of 13,000 feet (4000 meters) and free-fall for a time before opening their chute to slow their descent to a safe landing speed. If you are a little bit like me, you will be going to bed in the evenings thinking about where and when your next skydive will be, what is in store in the future, and who you'll meet along the way. "I watched him strap on his harness and helmet, climb into the cockpit and, minutes later, a black dot falls off the wing two thousand feet above our field. At almost the same instant, a while streak behind him flowered out into the delicate wavering muslin of a parachute - a few gossamer yards grasping onto air and suspending below them, with invisible threads, a human life, and man who by stitches, cloth, and cord, had made himself a god of the sky for those immortal moments." - Charles Lindbergh Go ahead and get this Kindle edition by Lionel Paxton.

About the Author

Lionel Paxton is an author who has recently turned his hand to children's books. He saw the need for informative picture books for children from the age of 5 to 10. Married to Mary Ellen, they are the busy parents to four boys, Simon, Will, and the twins Jack and Thomas. Books are typically the first exposure to learning and art that children get which urges one to make the very best books possible. He understands just how important books were to his childhood. With them, he feels as if transported to some parallel universe, a world of grace, hope and wonder. Lionel said, "The boys want more than just picture books they also want to learn things they can tell their friends about. Jack in particular loves learning new things. He was sick of story books and wanted something a bit more challenging." As the author of a few heavy historical novels he started writing children's books for the boys not long after Will was born. Being boys they wanted adventure and scary dragons. But after Jack and Thomas arrived Jack wanted to read 'real' books about 'real' things, not pretend stuff. Not being able to find suitable books written to the capacity of a 4 or 5 year old, he started making little flip books on his computer and using pictures from magazines and photographs in his collection. He sent one of these books to his publisher who thought this a great idea and has since commissioned a series of books for this age group. With the help of the boys he is currently working on several picture books about our land and sea animals. Lionel lives with his family, Billy the bitser, cats Ghost and Patch and assorted lizards and insects in Ho-Ho-Kus, a suburb of New York (Northern New Jersey-Long Island).
