So you’re thinking about trying skydiving? Be prepared to have the greatest thrill of your life! Your tandem skydive is an experience you will never forget. Nothing can compare to the excitement of leaping from an airplane into the air nearly two miles above the earth! Why not plan to take that memorable step today?


Tandem Explained

A Tandem Skydive on a parachute built for two is one of the easiest ways to experience skydiving. The passenger and an experienced, USPA-licensed tandem instructor wearing a specially designed harness and parachute system that connects two people safely together will exit the airplane at 10,000 feet, freefall about 35 seconds through the air until the parachute opens at 4,500 feet. The passenger then experiences a gentle descent while the tandem instructor and passenger steer the parachute to a precise landing. If after your first tandem you should decide to learn to skydive, that first jump will serve as a springboard to our student training program.

The pre-jump training is about 30 minutes, to prepare you to experience the exciting and rewarding thrill of a lifetime.
