Tandem Jumps – Fly Tandem with Parachuting.com Albuquerque
Tandem jumps are the most recommended jumps for first time jumpers because they allow all of the functional responsibilities of the jump to be facilitated by a Federal Aviation Administration certified instructor. This lets you get all the amazing experiences that comes along with a skydive and parachute without any of the danger. You’ll be soaring at about 14,000 feet above ground level, taking in the Rio Grande.
The first thing you’ll be doing is getting to your drop zone earlier than your scheduled jump. This way, you can figure out everything about the facilities and look at where your family and friends are going to meet up with you once you land. You’ll meet up with your skydiving instructor, who will show you how to position your body in the air to get the most out of your jump. You’ll be shown a quick video on what it’s like to fly tandem and be suited up in the awesome gear.
Once you’re in the aircraft and soaring through the sky, your instructor will attach themselves to you, and you’ll prepare to jump. After that, you’ll move toward the doorway right over the back wheel and make your jump. At this point, you’ll be more than 10,000 feet in the air and will eventually be reaching speeds of up to 120 mph. After a while, your instructor will pull the parachute, and you’ll float safely to the ground. You’ll have an epic landing and a memory that will last forever.

The sights on the way down won’t be the only way for you to enjoy the experience. Before you take flight, we have comfortable seating inside at our drop zones.

Skydiving Academy – Learn to Fly with Us
Skydiving training is recommended to anyone who wants to either fly solo or professionally. All of our instruction at Parachuting.com Albuquerque is facilitated by FAA certified skydivers. This allows you to train and be certified by the FAA and train others. The teachings are tailor-made to your level of progress. For Accelerated Free Fall, you’ll be accelerated toward getting your certification. You’ll have certified instructors jumping along with you, making sure you get everything right. There aren’t as many hours of training associated with AFF, so you can get airborne quickly.
Accelerated Free Fall
Your first free fall in AFF will be at 10,000-12,000 feet AGL, and instructors will maintain physical contact to make sure you’re getting every part of the jump right. You might experience up to 50 seconds of free fall with this option. You’ll receive instruction in a number of areas, such as altitude awareness, body position, stability, and a variety of other pertinent skills. You’ll also learn turns and forward movement so that you can fully adjust your position while airborne. Every jump you take part in will likely be filmed by one of the instructors, so you can watch the footage later and figure out where you can make improvements in the future.
Static Line Progression
For Static Line Progression, on the other hand, you’ll be launching at about 3,000 feet AGL. Your parachute will be deployed by a static line attached to the vehicle, allowing you to slowly soar over Albuquerque, NM for two to three minutes. You can expect four to five hours of ground instruction or 15 minutes of ground instruction for subsequent jumps. The static line will be the thing that deploys the parachute at every jump you undertake in this version. This is different from AFF, but is just as fun.

Imagery Packages – Shoot the Skies with Parachuting.com
The great thing about purchasing our professional videography option is that it will forever enshrine your parachuting experience for years to come. Memories come and go, but effortlessly falling through the sky will live forever. You can choose from two options when it comes to our videography option. You can either have a cameraperson jump alongside you and film the whole experience, or you can choose to have your skydiving instructor wear a GoPro to get up close and personal and record your every reaction.
Both options are competitively priced, but the professional cameraperson option will cost slightly more. This is because there will be another jumper going along with you and manning the camera as you all plummet toward the ground. The cameraperson will record your apprehensive thoughts before you even board the plane, showing you what you were thinking before you jump. They’ll record your thoughts until the time you jump. They’ll be leaving first to best capture your reactions.
They’ll capture all of your various quirks as you’re soaring and will land slightly before you so that they can record your landing. They’ll even capture your immediate reactions once you touch the ground. The video will be edited and ready for you to pick up within the hour, so you can bring your memories home with you. This will really enhance the experience, especially if it’s your first skydiving experience.
Filming the Fall
A profession that really doesn’t get enough credit is the camera flyer, soaring effortlessly through the skies while simultaneously filming your entire experience. It takes immense concentration and dedication to get this part of the job right, considering there’s only one opportunity and you absolutely have to get it right the first time. They’ll be falling through the expanse of sky at about 14,000 feet, filming plenty of footage before pulling their own parachute to ensure a safe landing.
There are plenty of professional opportunities afforded to those who are certified, so it’s cool that some people decide they’re going to dedicate their time to capturing the elation and joy of people diving through the sky for the first time. The cameras involved are top end, and you can imagine the level of concentration that’s necessary to ensure the best shots are used while at the same time making sure the camera isn’t lost.
You take that leap into the blue with a parachute strapped to your back and a precious camera in your hands. Wind whips your hair, your face, enveloping your ears. Feet above you, a newcomer is flying, their screams of joy as loud as if you were right next to them. You capture everything from the moment you leave the plane until touchdown. You’re a camera flyer.
