Skydiving is actually considered a sport!
Skydiving is one of the most intense activities! It has the potential to grab the attention of an audience. This is why most major soft drink company have utilized skydivers in their commercial advertisements. Did you know that skydiving is descending partly by parachute from airplane or smaller aircraft? Often, people over analyze skydiving because fear of the activity itself. However, skydiving is actually recognized as a recreational sport. Skydiving can even be a competitive sport! There are three phases for this sport: the free fall, the descent with open parachute, and the landing. While each experience varies, the overall jump process is rather similar across the board. It typically begins with the diver putting on their parachute and jumpsuit and is followed by prepping for the jump, continuing the jump out, and flying until pulling parachute to land.
We have every possible option you could desire!
Tandem skydiving is the most popular way to experience skydiving for first timers. Tandem skydiving is a unique type of skydiving that involves the student being harnessed to the tandem instructor. This is very popular for those who want to skydive with a certified instructor. The instructor will then guide the student through the entire process, including the jump from the exit to the free fall. The instructor also guides you through piloting of the canopy and landing as well.

If you are looking to expand your knowledge of the sport, this is a strong option for you.

Nashville is home to more than just country music fans!
Nashville, Tennessee is one of the most picturesque cities in the south! Known for its country music and country music fans, many people do not ever consider the amount of thrill seekers who reside in Nashville. The city is home to many professional teams, including National Football League team the Tennessee Titans, the National Hockey League Team, Nashville Predators and Minor League Baseball team, and the Nashville Sound. There are also numerous collegiate team sports as well, including those at Tennessee State University, Middle Tennessee State University, and Vanderbilt University in Nashville’s historic West End.
Tandem Skydiving – the most recommended jump for first time skydivers!
Tandem skydiving is the most recommended jump for first time skydivers because they allow the functional responsibilities of the dive to be facilitated by a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified Instructor. You will not be jumping alone on your first skydive—your certified instructor is with you every step of the way. Tandem skydiving is the safest training method for first-time jumpers and has made the sport accessible to millions of people worldwide. Tandem skydiving is an extremely popular form of skydiving and one of the safest ways that someone can experience all the excitement of a jump from a plane, free fall, and parachute flight. Tandem skydiving is, among others, a method of training candidates for skydiving. A Tandem skydive is the quickest and easiest way to feel the thrill of free fall at over 120 miles per hour while remaining securely attached to one of our world-class instructors. The jump from 10,000 plus feet will consist of roughly a 26 to 30 second free fall, but some may last slightly longer.
You will have equipment for your jump, such as goggles and a harness. You will also have other equipment pieces such as a reserve chute. We encourage you to arrive at the drop zone much earlier than your scheduled jump to have time to properly prepare and address any questions or concerns you may have. This allows time for being outfitted in the appropriate gear and being able to watch an informative video on what to expect when jumping in tandem.
Our drop zones are comfortable and enjoyable!
We work very hard to make sure our drop zones are an experience for our customers! Our drop zones are much more appealing than your average drop zones in numerous ways. They are truly something you would have to experience for yourself in order to understand what exactly we mean. Our drop zones are especially unique in that they all have comfortable seating located both inside and outside for your friends and family. Some of our locations may even have other amenities, such as food for sale, picnic tables where you can bring lunches, or drinks you can purchase. Each location has its own benefits and amenities, and for specifics, we ask that you inquire from within for more information. Again, we do want to ensure an enjoyable experience, so we like to include comfortable seating to relax you and aid in solidifying a much stronger and memorable experience.

Are you trying to expand your skydiving experience?
There are various skydiving instruction, and Skydiving Academy covers them all. Accelerated Free Fall Training (AFF) is one of the main instructions that our academy discusses. AFF Training is designed to teach you specifically how to skydive both safely and expeditiously. We use the very latest training techniques to accomplish this. There are generally seven levels of AFF Training. Level one is designed to address your first skydiving process in detail. Level two is catered toward discussing body position and how to redefine yours for the best jumping process. Level three is where the instructors release you—they cover this process in detail, and Level four practices 90 degree turns. Level five focuses on 360 degree turns. Level six emphasizes stability and being confident in establishing that stability. Level seven pieces all of the knowledge you have gained together.
Accelerated Free Fall (AFF)
Comparatively speaking, Accelerated Free Fall is a more accelerated version of instruction toward the pursuit of a skydiving certification than traditional methods, such as Static Line Progression. With a seven level course, student skydivers will be instructed in varying degrees of solo skydives. These solo skydives are ultimately facilitated and assisted by one or more certified skydiving instructors jumping alongside the student. Despite the fact that it has seven steps, it is considered more accelerated in the sense that the student will be participating in an actual free fall much more expeditiously. The first free fall in AFF may be executed following seven or so hours of ground instruction whereas a Static Line Progression student will not perform an actual free fall until after at least three jumps that demonstrate the requisite technique has been completed.
Your first free fall experience will typically be commenced at 10,000-12,000 feet AGL and be facilitated by two AFF instructors jumping alongside you. Instructors will maintain physical contact by practicing Harness Hold Training (HHT). HHT is the act of gripping the student by their harness and HHT will be executed until the student deploys their parachute. Typically, you will be prompted to deploy the parachute between 4,000 and 6,000 feet AGL, and the instructors will help to prompt the student to deploy if needed.
If the student does not, instructors will prompt by placing the student’s hand on the deployment handle. Should the student not deploy, the instructor will facilitate deployment. Generally speaking, students may experience 50 seconds or more of free fall.
Skydiving can get pretty competitive, literally!
Have you ever considered getting involved in competitive skydiving? If you are an experienced jumper, it may be something that you have been strongly considering. Formation skydiving is one of the most commonly performed team jumps. From a preset altitude, teams must perform a pre-determined sequence of formations with each other holding either the legs or hands of another teammate in order to build the desired formations.
Freestyle and freeflying are also popular aspects of competitive skydiving. Freestyle and freeflying involve the ability to fly your body in any position and in any direction. There are no limits or rules—except those set by your own imagination. Freestyle is a solo discipline, and freeflying is performed by two or more skydivers and opens up the more artistic side of skydiving, allowing skydivers to display their individuality.
Often referred to as ‘freefall gymnastics,’ style skydiving is a solo sport in which participants aim to carry out set routines of complex, mid-air maneuvers including loops and turns. Style skydiving requires awesome levels of skill and ability to finely control the body’s position during freefall to achieve the desired movements. It can be challenging, but highly exhilarating and rewarding. If you are a professional jumper or someone with a lot of jump experience, considering competitive skydiving may be a good thing for you.

We have a photography package to suit your needs!
Our imagery packages are some of the most conclusive and dynamic packages we offer. Having our video package enhances the overall experience of a skydive, especially if it is your first time jumping. We have two main video packages that are available for our customers to choose from. Our videography service includes a camera flyer jumping with you to film your experience from start to fruition. This is a good choice if you want distance shots or want to have the experience felt from more of an outside perspective. The other is our GoPro/Handycam alternative where the skydiving instructor you are jumping with will have the GoPro camera equipped to record your actions and your overall experience. This is a really good option if you want your experience to be recorded from a more up close and personal vantage point.
Our video services are competitively priced, yet slightly more costly than the GoPro option. The reason why is because we will have a professional jumping alongside you to record your actions and experiences. We offer the option for your videos to be edited and set to music at the drop zone, and they are typically available to take home with you in less than an hour.
Becoming a cameraman is in your reach!
Shooting videos for skydivers can be an exciting and unique experience. No two days will ever be similar, and this job is perfect for those who want to experience something different every day and be right in the middle of the action. It is required that you are a certified skydiver. Obtaining this certification comes from an Advanced Free Fall course. Next, it is imperative that you get a helmet with a mount for the actual camera. To become a camera flyer, you’re going to need the right gear. As it turns out, many companies produce gear for shooting skydiving videos and still images.
One of the most important things for practicing skydiving camera flyers to do is remember that they need to make a story out of their filming. Many forget this. It does not matter if you’re shooting tandems or fun-jumpers, it is good practice to shoot a sequence of shots that tell the story of the jump. This includes shots of the anticipation of the jumpers, the plane ride up, the ground below, the exit, the freefall, and the landing! The idea is to make a compelling piece with your work to aid in making the skydiving experience memorable.
