On a tandem skydive, you will exit the airplane from approximately 10,000 feet above the ground, harnessed to a USPA certified Tandem Instructor. Free fall time is about 40 seconds, followed by a five minute absolutely peaceful parachute flight.
After your extensive classroom and hands-on first jump course, you will be fitted with our top of the line, state of the art equipment, and will fly to an altitude of approximately 4,500 feet above the ground to make your first jump. As you exit the aircraft your USPA certified instructor will deploy your parachute for you and you can enjoy a beautiful and peaceful parachute ride while an instructor on the ground guides you to the landing area by giving you instructions on a radio.
