Not sure what to do for your first jump?
Texas Skydiving offers 3 methods to accommodate your budget, your schedule, and your sense of adventure!
Tandem jumping is designed for those who don’t want to take a class or those who want to have a skydiving instructor right there every step of the way. The total time required for a tandem jump is about 2-3 hours (more time needed for groups). Tandem jumps can be scheduled all throughout the day (daylight hours), almost any day of the week. Make a reservation.
Solo first-time jumps require some classroom instruction before you jump. The classroom instruction starts in the morning, and your jump is in the afternoon. Classes are held every Saturday. Sundays and weekdays can be scheduled. There are two kinds of solo jumps: low-altitude and high-altitude.
Low-altitude static-line jumps involve about 3 hours of classroom instruction, followed by a jump from about 4500′ where your chute is deployed by a static-line attached to the plane. Make a reservation.
High-altitude accelerated freefall jumps involved 4-5 hours of classroom instruction, followed by a jump in the late afternoon, from about 11,000 feet. With instructors in the air beside you, you freefall for just under a minute, deploy your chute, and steer yourself to landing. Make a reservation.
Video or still photos of your jump. A cameraman jumps with you, or your jumpmaster takes a camera along, to film you prior to the jump, during the plane ride, under canopy (handycam option only), landing, and after the jump. There are several options for filming your jump, prices starting at $89.
**Fuel surcharge may apply. Additional charge for jumpers weighing over 220 lb.
