A tandem jump is the easiest and most popular way to experience skydiving for the first time, only requiring a half hour of basic ground instruction. A tandem jump allows first time jumpers to experience the thrill of freefall from 10,500 feet while securely harnessed to our experienced instructor.

Accelerated Freefall

First-time students learn to skydive with their own parachute system, experiencing the thrill of freefall with two instructors at their sideā€”not attached to them. The instructors hold onto the student's harness until the student deploys his own parachute. Then makes a solo canopy descent, with radio instruction to help guide him to a safe landing.
