Take part in the most thrilling skydive of a lifetime and fly through the sky with Tandem Skydiving!
Our focus is always on your safety, and our vendors employ trained instructors who are licensed and certified through the United States Parachute Association. They will teach you everything you need to know to make your extreme adventure dream come true before you ever leave the Earth – from the jump, to opening up your parachute, to the parachute landing.
We offer two main types of parachute skydiving jumps – Tandem and Accelerated Freefall (AFF). We normally recommend tandem skydiving for first-timers. When you tandem skydive, your instructor is actually attached to your harness. For those who have parachuted before, we recommend AFF. One or two instructors jump with you but are not attached to your harness. AFF parachuting requires much more training, which is achieved by advancing through several levels. In both types of parachuting jumps, you never jump alone.
Taking part in a Tandem Skydive is the perfect way to enter into the sport. Whether you have jumped previously or are just starting out, this will give you a feel for the activity. Once you arrive at the jump site, you will meet with one of our experienced instructors who will go over everything you need to know before your jump. After you understand the equipment and process of the jump, it’s time to go up into the sky.
You will be attached to the instructor via a harness. Don’t worry, the parachute used is larger and intended for the weight of two people. Now it’s time to jump! You will exit the plane and then the experience really takes off. Terminal velocity of 120 miles per hour is the most exhilarating feeling you can find anywhere. You will have approximately 60 seconds of free fall before the parachute is deployed, at which point you will gracefully float to the ground where your friends and family will be waiting for you. Parachuting.com also offers a wide range of videography packages to immortalize the jump and give you something to take with you. You’ll have stories for all of your friends!
Train with the best instructors around and start your career in skydiving with Skydive Academy!
For those who have decided that they want to make skydiving part of their life for the long term, we offer Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) courses that will allow you to be solo certified quickly. The AFF program allows you to jump without being attached to an instructor. You will receive ground instruction prior to the jump and then you will jump with instructors next to you, as opposed to attached as in Tandem skydiving.
You will have repeated jumps alongside instructors, during which you must perform different technical maneuvers and movements to reach the next levels. After you have completed all seven levels of the course, you will be able to complete solo jumps alone. This is the fastest way to become certified to solo skydive. After you have successfully graduated from the course and obtained your USPA certification, you will be able to jump anywhere in the country! We have trained numerous jumpers, from novice to expert, and hope that you will be the next one to join the ranks of the elite and fearless skydivers in our family. This sport is too incredible not to share and we’re waiting to get you started!
The ideal jump for certified skydivers or those wishing to become eligible for certification. Our affiliated instructors are United States Parachute Association (USPA) certified professionals who will walk those interested in pursuing certification and AFF jumps through the ropes to get them on their way to solo skydive in the most expeditious way possible.
In order to jump without the assistance of an instructor harnessed to you, it is recommended you undergo AFF instruction. AFF consists of seven staggered levels of instruction that combine ground training with repeated jumps alongside two instructors with the student skydiver demonstrating various techniques and maneuvers each time. This is done until the student is capable of exercising a particular set of maneuvers eventually alongside only one instructor and until they are literally jumping all on their own in the end. Level progression is performance based and moves at the rate the student skydiver finds most comfortable, so as to make certain each individual has the opportunity to learn at their own pace. Once you have achieved progression through all seven levels, you will ultimately be able to jump absolutely solitarily. And once you have completed the seven level course, you may apply for certification through the USPA which entitles you to skydive at any participating DZ in the country.
Various drop zones offer different types of skydive instruction like Static Line (S/L) Progression and Tandem Progression. Inquire with customer support to get more information about what types of training are available near you.

He has enough money to last forever. He knows he needs to keep moving. You’ll never find him. He’s out of the picture. I saved his life, I owed him that, but now he and I are done. Which is exactly what you wanted, isn’t it. You’ve always struck me as a very pragmatic man so if I may, I would like to review options with you. Of which, it seems to me you have two.
Option A, you kill me right here and now. Apparently I’ve made that very easy for you. You can kill me, no witnesses and then spend the next few weeks or months tracking down Jesse Pinkman and you kill him too. A pointless exercise it seems to me but that is Option A.
I continue cooking, you and I both forget about Pinkman. We forget this ever happened. We consider this a lone hiccup in an otherwise long and fruitful business arrangement. I prefer Option B.
He’ll live. I asked to see you in order to… clear the air. There are uh, some… issues that could cause a misunderstanding between us and I think it’s in our best interest to lay the cards on the table. My brother-in-law, moments before he was attacked, someone called to warn him. I believe that same person was protecting me.
Look, I’ll give you Jesse Pinkman, OK? Like you said, he’s the problem, he’s always been the problem and without him, we would… and he’s in town, alright? He’s not in Virginia or wherever the hell you’re looking for him. He’s right here in Albuquerque and I can take you to him, I’ll take you right to him. What do you say?
It’s complicated and I don’t wish to discuss it. It’s none of your concern. You know what, let’s just say that I have a hell of a lot more on my mind, right now, than thinking about buying a damn car wash. Okay? So if you could just… please.
Stop. Stop! You keep saying that word – danger… danger! No and I have never used that word. I said things were complicated. And then you flew off the handle!
Gus is gonna make his move. I don’t know when, I don’t know where or how. All I know is it’s gonna happen. Powerless to stop him. Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? I mean, even if I told you, you wouldn’t believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work?
