    Brian Thomas Mr. Buck Civics H 3 September 27, 2009 The History of Skydiving Parachuting has been around since the fifteenth century as Leonardo da Vinci has the first drawings of a parachute.

    Parachuting, also known as skydiving, is the action of exiting an aircraft and returning to earth with the aid of a parachute. It may or may not involve a certain amount of free-fall, a time during which the parachute has not been deployed and the body gradually accelerates to terminal velocity.
