Tandem skydiving is the method we highly recommends for your first skydive. Tandem skydives require the least amount of training (usually less than an hour), and maintain the highest degree of safety. Your instructor will be with you through the entire skydive and parachute ride. Your jump will include up to approximately 30-60 seconds of freefall, followed by a canopy ride that lasts anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes.

Accelerated Free Fall
AFF is the most advanced method of training to become certified to skydive on your own. Before your first jump you will attend a 4 to 6 hour training class that will teach you the fundamentals of skydiving. Your jump is made in the company of two USPA rated AFF Jump masters who provide direct assistance during the exit and freefall. You will have the opportunity to deploy your pilot chute, which will release your main canopy. Once your parachute is deployed, you will (with radio assistance) control a solo parachute descent back to the earth below.
What to wear / What to bring
To make your first Jump, wear casual clothes suitable for outdoor activity at the temperatures forecast for the day. For the warm months, shorts or jeans, lightweight shirt, and tennis shoes are fine. In the winter a sweatshirt or long sleeve warm shirt, jeans, lightweight gloves, and tennis shoes are usually sufficient. On all your student training jumps our skydiving affiliate will provide all gear needed for your skydive.
We encourage you to bring your friends, cameras, and picnic lunches. Children are welcome if they are supervised while you are making your jumps.
