Love any thing to to do with wings or wingless.
Taiwan doesn’t have enough laws to regulate the airspace in Taiwan and as Jackie CHen said 5 years ago that Taiwaness Goverments are too messed up so they never permitted him to enter taiwan since then.
To allow an aeroplane to make a drop, there must be a governmnet body to regulate the airspace, and since everything is controled by the politics, you cannot perform such action. General aviation doesn’t exist so therefore, sky diving won’t happen because not enough regulations and anything happens could ended up in the court.
I was going to take the AFF course in Australia for like $2000AUS but couldn’t take time off, so the closest to get to free fall is diving into my bed and my local swimming pool.
If you really want to take up sky diving, you could join the military service, where they take you up some 300ft (not 14000ft for free fall) and jump off the aeroplane and the ripped cord is pulled straight away which is not as fun as the free fall but better than nothing.
Someone was asking about jumping off the heli, now I can explain that. Most sky divers like to jump off a heli, cliff, hot air balloon or off the building is because the body is still static so from 0 movment to terminal velocity requires some time. So there is a constant acceleration and your body an feel it which makes your heart pumping harder and this may suit you more if you are a adrenline junkie. Jumping off the plane is not as fun as jumping of a building or heli is because the aircraft is already moving and your body is moving with the aircraft so you are already moving. Then when you jumped of the aeroplane you don’t have that much change of acceleration so, if you want to impress chicks, go and jump off a heli.
Just a fact, someone tryed to open Taiwan’s first General aviation flying school, but got shut down within the year, and let’s just say, if there is no regulations, how can a flying school teachs the students to fly??? Last time I checked my aviation documents, I coudn’t put them back into my closet because there were too many folders.
I don’t know much about aviation in Taiwan because it doesn’t exist and controled by the military and politics, but out side Taiwan, I know quite a fair bit. I couldn’t mind get myself an ultralight aircraft from Australia. I’ve got enough space to store it but might have to ask the farmers behind our property to stop farming for a while so i can use it as an air strip.
Anyway, many people asked me why wouldn’t you want to jump off a perfectly good aeroplane???
