Your skydive instructor will make final preparations to the parachute before the plane reaches its desired altitude.

All too soon the parachute is deployed and Cairns slowly starts coming back into focus. Your skydive instructor will give you an opportunity to actually guide the parachute before gently landing back on the solid earth.
