Tandem jumps offer an introduction to the sport of Skydiving. These jumps allow the neophyte to go up with an experienced jumper, without a ground school first. On your tandem jump, much of the instruction occurs during the jump, thanks to the professional right behind you. A tandem jump requires 15 to 45 minutes of ground preparation. Both the student and the tandem instructor wear harnesses, which attach. The tandem instructor wears the parachute. After attaching the harnesses in the aircraft, the instructor and student exit and fall together. The instructor deploys the parachute, and the instructor and student steer and land together under one very large parachute.
Tandem jumping provides an obvious advantage for the adventurous spirit who does not want to take the full solo ground school or are unsure how they will perform in freefall. With the tandem jump, you will still be able to completely experience the thrill of skydiving, learning as you go, but without the worry of forgetting what to do.
If you “get hooked” and want to keep skydiving, you may want to do a few additional working tandem skydives, or you may want to join in the Solo Freefall program. There is a price discount for those who have made tandem skydives.
Your first tandem jump is just $199.00. Each tandem jump with us after that is only $169.00.
