Skydiving is perhaps one of the most extreme sports. Watching from the ground for a skydiver soaring in the sky, and looking at photos of the flight, often passing above the clouds, the average viewer is breathtaking! But lovers of this sport conquer us not only with its inherent danger (jump height, flight duration and other parameters), but also with the beauty of “hovering” in the air, as well as with amazing acrobatic numbers and figures that they manage to perform while high in the sky.

As in any sport, parachute acrobatics also has its own rules and requirements. Our selection will help you get to know them better by looking at stunning photos of skydivers' performances.
