Tandem Skydiving

Tandem Skydive

Tandem skydiving is the most popular way to experience skydiving for first timers. With less than 30 minutes training you can jump attached to an expert instructor. First you complete some paperwork and watch our video. Then you will attend a short class conducted by a United States Parachute Association (USPA) licensed Tandem Instructor. Your instructor will have a minimum of 3 years experience in skydiving, 500 jumps, and hold a USPA Master Skydiving license, although most of our instructors have thousands of skydives. In the class you learn an overview of the process, correct freefall body position, emergencies, exiting the aircraft, operating the parachute after freefall, landing approach, and landing.

Tandem Skydive - PeaceAfterwards, an instructor will outfit you with a jumpsuit, harness, goggles, altimeter, and helmet. The harness attaches to the parachute directly at 4 seperate points so there is no chance of coming loose. Each one of our UPT Sigma tandem parachute systems is the top-of-the-line in the industry. Each contains a main parachute, reserve parachute, and an onboard computerized Airtec CYPRES automatic activation device. The reserve parachutes are all inspected and re-packed by our F.A.A. certified Master Parachute Rigger every 180 days. If by 1,900 feet no parachute has been activated, the automatic activation device will activate the reserve parachute.

Tandem LandingOnce you are suited up, it's only an 8 minute ride to 14,000 feet above the ground where you exit into freefall at 120 MPH for about a minute. You or the instructor will open the parachute around 5,000 feet and you will spend 5 to 7 minutes both steering it to the ground. The landings are typically soft, sliding in on your behind or standing up.

The entire process takes 2 to 4 hours from the time you arrive until you leave. Tandem passengers must weigh 254 lbs or less. Additional rates and restrictions may apply to passengers over 230 lbs.
