Tandem Skydiving – A great introduction
Tandem skydiving is a great introduction to free falling. It is the safest, most exhilarating approach to skydiving, and will leave you with memories you will never forget!
When you skydive tandem, you are harnessed to an USPA (United States Parachute Association) certified instructor who does all the hard work for you. They are responsible for pulling the chute at the correct time– all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!
A typical experience…
You will arrive before your scheduled jump time in order to meet your instructor, get geared up, and watch an informational video. Then you will board the plane, get harnessed to your instructor, and you’ll jump at about 10,000 feet!
Once you’re back on the ground, you’ll get to celebrate with all of your family and friends in our drop zone!
Skydiving involves a lot of gear to keep you from, well, not dying or getting injured. When you put on your gear, you should expect to see: goggles to protect your eyes from the wind and stray bugs, a passenger harness that can attach to your instructor on both shoulders and both hips, and a container that holds your main parachute, your reserve chute, your automatic activation device that automatically deploys the reserve shoot in case something goes wrong, and your drogue chute. The drogue chute is a special parachute designed for tandem skydiving. It allows supplementary resistance to slow down your free fall and keep it controlled.
Bring all of your friends
Completing your first dive by yourself is no fun! Invite all of your admirers to come jump with you or hang out and watch the show.
Parachuting.com has the best drop zones in all of New York! While you’re soaring through the clouds, your friends and family will have a comfortable spot to sit, eat, drink, and take pictures of you!
We have both indoor and outdoor seating, and often have amenities such as picnic tables and food and drinks on sale. Every location is different, so be sure to call ahead of time to hear about our offerings.
Make sure that all of your friends waiting for you in the drop zone bring their cameras! Although our video packages will catch most of the details of the dive, it’s always great to have some shots from below while you’re diving.
Once your jump is complete, you will be able to hang out in our drop zone. This is the perfect place to wait for your videographer to finish compiling your awesome video!
Feeling inspired after your jump? Convince a friend to go with you on your next dive by purchasing their tandem jump with a Parachuting.com gift certificate.

Get certified with Parachuting.com’s Skydiving Academy
If you’ve been hooked by your tandem skydive and want the freedom of diving without an instructor, Parachuting.com Buffalo’s skydiving academy is the next step!
When you attend Parachuting.com’s skydiving academy you will be taught by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified skydivers who will provide you with the safest and most productive experience! Upon the completion of your training, you can dive whenever and wherever you want.
Choose your Trajectory
There are two main styles of skydiving training to choose from:
Accelerated Freefall (AFF)
The AFF method of learning to skydive is named as such because it is the quickest path to jumping by yourself. Throughout the coursework, you will complete seven steps with the help of two instructors.
What to expect during your first free fall
During your first free fall of the AFF training method, you will jump alongside two instructors. Your instructors will prompt you to pull your own chute at the appropriate time. If you fail to do so, they will pull it for you.
The 7 Steps
Levels 1-3 lead up to you freefalling by yourself and Levels 4-7 are about making yourself a natural in the air.
Integrated Student Program (ISP)
After you complete Level 7, you will enter the Integrated Student Program (ISP). During this program, you will complete 25 jumps so that you can apply for your A license.
Static Line Progression (S/L):
The S/L method is executed when the student skydiver falls away from the aircraft at about 3,000 feet above ground level. As they fall, their parachute is deployed at the correct time by a static line that is attached to the aircraft.
What to expect in S/L training
When you start your S/L training, you will go through several hours of ground training. You will then complete two effective S/L jumps, learn how to pull your ripcord, and practice pulling the ripcord at the correct time. Finally, you will free fall from various heights! After the completion of 25 jumps, you are eligible to apply for your A license and become FAA certified.

Camera Flyers: artist meets adrenaline junky
Are you in to videography and love jumping out of air planes? Then you should consider becoming a camera flyer! Camera flyers are the professionals who record jumps and compile videos for the skydiver.
This job takes great skill and a lot of practice! You must be able to manipulate the air around you to get all of the angles of the subject AND you have to have a great eye for artistic shots. Your mind must be thinking about a million things at once and you can’t forget about your chute in the process!
Obviously, mastering these skills takes a lot of practice, but you also have to be certified and have the appropriate equipment. Before you can even begin to hone your skills, you must become A Class certified by the FAA so that you can dive by yourself. Then you have to purchase high quality, durable equipment. Finally, you practice, practice, practice!
You also have to be able to compile and edit your videos in a quick, clean fashion. Typically customers expect their footage before you leave the site, so you need to be efficient and effective in the air AND on the ground!
