    How safe is skydiving?

    I am an avid scuba diver, is falling out of an airplane a larger risk?  I would love to hear personal experiences.  I'm terrified, but want to try it.

    It 's absolutely not.
    It 's a risk you take.

    Maybe you should better ask how far do you wish to risk?

    It's really hard to put to scale or gauge the safety of skydiving. I did it last summer and as scary as it was beforehand and leading up to it, I actually felt very safe once we jumped out of the plane. As far as the precautions they take, it makes it a much safer experience but the fact that you are falling out of a plane from a very high altitude makes it a very unsafe act.

    Like mywikistep said, it's more of a risk.

    Anyway, I found it very exciting and I thought it was worth the risk despite how scary it was leading up to it.
