2015 Vertical World Record

The sport of skydiving continues to expand into arenas we never thought possible just 10 years ago. In 2015 this amazing head down world record was accomplished in Chicago.

If you're new to skydiving, there's lots of different disciplines for jumpers to get into.... it's not just falling from an airplane. Today, skydivers can fall head to earth (as seen in this video) or belly to earth or exit and pop a parachute right away and play with others under parachute or go wingsuiting or freestyle or freefly! There's so much to do and learn in skydiving!

The whole experience was surreal and I can't say enough about how great the team at Skydive Newport is!!
