Pacific Skydivers

Sarah Westwood learns the basics of skydiving at Pacific Skydivers in Pitt Meadows, BC. Before jumping out of a plane at 10,000 ft. for the very first time, Sarah speaks with the owner of Pacific Skydivers, Ian Ferguson, who has been jumping since 1986, and here in Pitt Meadows since 1991. “We don’t ever get anyone who regrets having done it,” Ian informs us.

Vlady Rincon, Sarah’s instructor for the day, starts by telling her that they’ll be jumping from 12,500 ft. They’ll be having a freefall of about forty to fifty second, before opening their chutes at 5,000 ft. After leading her through a series of exercises, the jumpees gear up, and head into the very plane that before they know it, they’re jumping out of.

Free like a bird, arms and legs waving in the force of air rushing past, big grins are caught on camera as the quadrants of land rush up at the skydivers. The footage captures them swinging their legs out and the ground rushing below them, and then, they’re safely on terra firma. After squeals of “I love you Vlady,” Sarah confirms with the camera that jumping out of a plane at 12,000 ft. was “the best experience, that I have ever had in my life.”
