Parachutes give you wings

“How will he jump off the plane that is about to crash?” “Wait! He has parachute” “Oh Thank God he has parachute” these are some thoughts which might have occurred in your mind when you have just watched a movie in which a person is about to jump of off the plane that is going down.
A parachute helps a heavy mass containing object to reach the ground slowly so that it is unable to get damaged. Pilots who are flying airplanes are given parachutes so that they can jump high above in the sky but reach on land safely in case if anything goes wrong with the airplane. However, using a parachute is not very simple and easy. To use one, you need to have training by an experienced trainer who knows very well how parachutes function.
In the early days parachutes were used as a life saving device only. But nowadays, they are also used in recreational activities like skydiving, paragliding, waterskiing, etc. Mostly tourists or people who are enjoying their vacations enjoy these activities that hotels offer so that everyone can have an experience of using a parachute. Lots of belts attach the person with the parachute so that he or she can tightly hold on to it.
Parachutes are not very easily created. Although they were first invented in the 1470s but it took a lot of years in shaping them correctly so that people can actually benefit from them. A lot of engineering is required in creating a parachute; that is why they are expensive in the market. First they were only used in wars but now they are available for common people as well.
With the help of Parachutes people can experience what it is like to fly in the air or be in the sky. It gives a really lightening feeling when you are able to touch the clouds and see birds pass you by.
