How are parachutes used in air?

Parachuting goes way back, but actual parachuting in the US went back to about 1912. However, early patachutes did not fair well as they were not reliable and did not always open. In the 1930's parachuting deployment improved. The purpose of a parachute is to slow the decent of an object as with a person, supplies or bomb. The drag caused by an open parachute creates a slow descent, allowing the parachuted object to land safely. Without a parachute an object can fall at the rate of 32 feet per second.

What is the difference between free fall and static line parachute jumps?

What height do you have to be to go parachuting?

Static line parachuting takes place from around 4000ft. As you fall from the aircraft, the parachute opens automatically. To go skydiving (i.e. freefalling through the sky with a packed parachute on your back), you typically jump from between 10,000ft to 15,000ft. You can get up to 1 minute in freefall, or significantly longer with a wingsuit.
