Your First Jump
▼ Tandem | SOLO (AFF)


Tandem Skydiving is the easiest, safest, and by far the most popular way to make your first skydive. It also gives you a total introduction to skydiving from the ground up. Securely attached to one of our highly qualified and licensed tandem instructors via a dual harness system, you will experience the ride of your life! You will pull the student ripcord and fly a parachute made for two. (Don't worry, your instructor will pull for you and fly the parachute if you choose not to).

We can have you in the air after a short training class on exiting the aircraft, freefall body position, and how to pull the ripcord. Interestingly enough, as you and your instructor take to the skies upon exiting our airplane at over 10,000 feet you will have the sensation of being on your own as you accelerate to over 120 mph. After you open the parachute your instructor will be on hand to offer guidance as you fly the parachute together.

A tandem jump is a great way to experience the thrill of skydiving with the security and the close supervision of a highly experienced instructor. This method is ideal for those who want to experience the full sensation of a skydive, but aren't sure if they want to do it alone or continue in the sport.

As with all skydiving activities, wearing comfortable, weather appropriate clothes and tennis shoes are a must. We will supply you with a jumpsuit, goggles, altimeter and harness to securely attach you to your instructor's harness.

Video and Pictures: You can never repeat your first skydive - the anticipation and exhilaration, the adrenaline rush, and the pure independence you feel is unlike anything you have ever experienced. You can't repeat it but you can relive it! We offer video and photographic services for your first jump and for training purposes. Video and photos of your adventure will include pre-jump footage, the airplane ride, the freefall, the scenery, the parachute opening, the parachute flight, and the after jump excitement. Don't miss out on capturing this once in a lifetime experience!

Most first-time skydivers follow our recommendation to choose a Tandem Skydive. However, for those individuals who are highly motivated and ready to commit to a serious skydive training program, the Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) course is also available.
