What is "Jump Run" in skydiving?
I added this part because a few designs incorporated jumping or running which is off-message. The "tl;dr" of this is "don't depict jumping or running". For the full story, please read on.
Jump Run actually has nothing to do with "jumping" or "running" as we typically think about them. Designs which incorporate a person jumping or running will not work so well.
In skydiving the plane takes skydivers to their exit altitude. Exit altitude typically ranges from 10k-14.5k feet, depending on the type of plane and the dropzone's preference (dropzone is another word for skydiving center). Some operations go to 18k feet regularly which provides more freefall time and nicer views, which can be especially nice in mountainous areas, areas near the water, or other interesting geographical features. Some of the fastest planes commonly used for skydiving can get to 18k in about 9 minutes, while the slower planes may take 20 minutes just to get to 10k. In addition to the views, the difference in altitude can double your freefall time in some cases, and more time to play with your friends in the air is definitely a good thing.
While climbing the plane flies roughly a square pattern over the dropzone. When the plane is at or nearly at altitude and approaching the "spot" (the correct exit point to allow skydivers to safely make it back to the dropzone) it will fly in straight line; this leg of the pattern is called "jump run". The plane levels out, the engines are throttled back to reduce ground speed, and there's an noticeable difference in the sound of the plane which can be heard all the way on the ground. It's comparable reaching cruising speed in a car and letting off the gas; there's a slight roar and then everything gets quieter. It's an exciting sound to both skydivers and spectators because they're about 2 minutes to "jumpers away" and in about 3 minutes spectators see different colored canopies start popping open in the air. "Jump run" is a term spoken at dropzones throughout the day, which makes this a fun and somewhat premium brand and domain name to operate.
If nothing else, I hope I was able to explain what jump run is :)
