The speed of a Skydiver (headfirst) is about 0.000000240 times the speed of light.
(Head-to-Earth orientation or standing, average conditions, terminal velocity)
A head-to-Earth or standing-oriented skydiver's terminal velocity assuming average conditions is about 0.000000240 times the speed of light. In a typical jump from 3,900 m (13,000 ft), a diver in this orientation will be in freefall for 46 seconds.
