Your First Jump

Tandem students exit the aircraft between 9,500 and 12,500 feet.
We require that you do at least 1 Tandem Skydive before entering our student program. Skydiving is not as simple as jumping out of the plane and pulling a ripcord. Having an experienced instructor with you to help get you acclimated is the best way to ensure your safety and enjoyment while you are introduced to this exciting sport. The only exception to this rule may be if you`ve been in a formal training program somewhere else.
No problem, we supply goggles that will fit over your glasses and also keep your contacts in place
A few people have been known to get motion sickness under the parachute but not in freefall. In freefall you will feel like you are just floating on a column of air, there is no feeling of height or of falling. If you are susceptible to motion sickness, perhaps a Gravol or Dramamine will help. Ensure you inform your instructor of your tendency of getting motion sickness, so we can make every effort to avoid any motion sickness on your skydive.
Of Course, if it’s your first jump, absolutely. You will never forget your first jump, none of us ever do, BUT, skydiving is such a high speed and intense experience, many people do not recall a lot of the details of their jump. Having a video will help you recall the whole exciting event. In the years to come, you will be able to share the experience with your friends and family.
Unfortunately, no. The video person jumps with just one Tandem and films just one person while in freefall. Our camera flyer can film you and your friend on the ground, in the aircraft and sometimes during landing. We cannot film two separate tandems in freefall with one video package.
You will spend approximately 12 minutes in the aircraft climbing to altitude, get 1 minute in freefall and approximately a 5 minute parachute ride.

Safety & Equipment

Our fleet is comprised of a Super Otter, Grand Caravan.
All sport parachute systems contain two parachutes, a main and a reserve. The instructors are highly trained on the use of the system and while the need to use the reserve is very rare, it does happen occasionally. All of our Tandem student systems are equipped with a sophisticated onboard computer that senses when you are too close to the ground and falling too fast, at which point it will automatically deploy a parachute. The reserve parachute is inspected every 180 days by an FAA certified rigger whether it is used or not.
We work very hard to make your skydive as safe as it can be. That being said, please do not lose sight of the fact that you are jumping out of an airplane over 2 miles above the earth.
