What Does Freefall Actually Feel Like?

What Does Freefall Actually Feel Like?


We often struggle to find the words to describe the sensation of freefall. It is one of those feelings that you need to experience for yourself to truly understand. Despite this, we wanted to do our best to help you try and understand this incredible rush. 

So, we reached out to a few members of our exclusive Facebook community – Skydive Australia Freefall Fans – to ask them to try and find the words to describe what freefall felt like.

Here’s what they had to say:


“Nothing like a roller coaster; nothing like falling. It was the best decision I’ve ever made!” – Shameil


“A big adrenaline rush! I’ve done other exhilarating things, but that tops it.” – Margie


“As someone who has cerebral palsy, skydiving allows me control of my body. Control is not a word often associated with having athetoid cerebral palsy!” – Marlena


“Freefall for me was the most exhilarating feeling I’ve ever had in my life. There’s that initial rush, then just this calmness, time just stood still and I was just fully aware of being in the moment and loving every second of it!” – Suzie


“Freefall feels like you are flying – the most epic feeling in the world. I’m always planning my next drop zone!” – Becc


“It was the feeling of total freedom from the world whilst taking in the awesome views.” – Lorraine


As you can see, the description of freefall varies even between those who have experienced it. It is such a unique feeling to each and every person who takes the leap from our plane.

Are you ready to truly find out for yourself what the magic of freefall feels like?

Let’s go!
