What Is Tandem Skydiving?

Tandem skydiving is the most popular way to experience skydiving for the first time.

As a tandem skydiver, you’ll be attached to one of our highly experienced instructors throughout the whole jump, and they will be responsible for the operation of all of the equipment.

Although your instructor will operate the equipment, you will still have an element of responsibility in the jump. Prior to your jump, you’ll receive training where you’ll learn the proper body position for exiting the aircraft and freefall. You’ll also learn about the importance of lifting your legs for landing. 

Tandem skydives are perfect for first-time skydivers. However, it’s not unusual for people to do multiple tandem skydives. Tandem skydiving is also great for anyone who wants to experience skydiving without learning to skydive solo. Want to know more?

Without a doubt my absolute favorite place to be when I'm out of school and off work. I came here after I made a tandem skydive and decided I wanted to learn and did my AFF. The instructors and coaches are wonderful. You WILL learn here. Loved jumping with Michael, Randy and Mike so much. Even if the drive is 2 1/2 hours and I'm licensed now, I'll keep coming back.
