Skydive in Pure, Undiluted Awesomeness

So you want to know what it is like to skydive for the first time? Well, when you first board the plane you’ll feel your heart beating against your ribcage. The instructor will likely tell you to sit back and relax as you fly over 10,000 feet in the air. Try to listen. The best moment happens right before you leave the plane. Take the leap, it’ll be worth it. You should probably know that time may stop for a few seconds while you freefall. The sky feels like 500 gallons of undiluted awesome rushing past. Victory is yours.

See Charleston from Every Angle


If you get a chance you should take the carriage ride tour of Charleston. You’ll get to see some breathtaking views of the harbor, several historic districts including plantations and some unbeatable Southern architecture. Get on a boat and check out the town from a different perspective.

You can unleash your inner Civil War history buff and explore some of the great battles at sea and on land. If you’re not into history you can still appreciate the historic mansions along the Battery and finish out your day at Sullivan’s Island or another beach.

Charleston is a great town to walk through, but that is nothing compared to the view from 10,000 feet.

Tandem Jump Instructors Take Care of the Details


Our tandem Jump instructors are certified by the United States Parachute Association (USPA). You will be tethered to an instructor from the time you jump out of the plane to when you land back at the drop zone. They live to jump with you.

Here is what you can expect from a Tandem Jump

You might want to get to the drop zone a little bit early to get a lay of the land. From the safety of land, your instructor will let you know the best way to position your body, let you watch a safety video, and make sure you are prepped and ready to free fall.

After you get geared up with a suit, some goggles, a harness, your Main Parachute, your Drogue Chute, your Reserve Chute, and all that safety goodness you are ready to hop on the plane.

When you reach around 10,000 feet the instructor will get up close and personal with your harness and the two of you will prepare for an epic plumett. Safely.

You will free fall for half a minute and could get up to 120 mph! At just the right time, the instructor will pull the chute and you’ll float to the drop zone. Keep your eyes on the sky while your heart rate returns to normal. If you get lucky you might even pass through some clouds on the way down! They don’t feel like cotton, but you will have to find out the truth for yourself.

Hang Out at a Drop Zone!

Your friends are probably going to spend a good chunk of time at our drop zones while you are out living your life. We try to have comfortable places to sit around for them and while you are waiting for your lift. There are usually some picnic tables to eat something you may have brought with you. Or, a lot of times there will be a few places to buy some food or something to drink. Every drop zone is a little different so feel free to ask about it when you call to reserve a jump. We always have a good place for friends to take pictures during your monumental landing.

What Other Skydiving Goodness is There?

Your friends are going to be a little bit bitter that they didn’t get to jump too. It is a perfectly normal reaction. That is why we have gift certificates. Feel free to include a picture or two from the drop zone when you hand the gift certificate over.

In fact, your friends might be a little distracted by jealously during your landing. You might want to use our videography services to make sure you get the best shots possible. Then you can revisit the video when you decide to become a professional skydiver yourself. Be careful, skydiving is contagious.

Solo Parachuting Academy in Charleston, South Carolina

Skydiving Academy is Too Cool to be a School


Skydiving Certification requires practice and skill. You can learn everything you need to know from our Skydiving Academy! Our two main training styles are Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) and Static Line Progression. By the end of each program you’ll qualify for your A license which allows you to jump whenever and wherever you like! As long as it is legal.

Accelerated Free Fall

AFF will let you free fall sooner than other training styles. Instructors will run you through the 7 level program. The first few levels will cover the basics of body position, stability, proper chute deployment, and by level three you’ll be free to fall untethered.

The last few levels will ensure you have mastered turns, forward movement, and docking onto other divers. You will finish off the course with a nice “Superman” dive out of the plane.

After you accomplish Superman, you’ll fly through the 25 jumps you need to qualify for your A license.

Static Line Progression

This method eases you into free fall. You will be attached to the plane by a ‘static line’ which will deploy your chute automatically as you leave the plane. Before you jump, you will have more ground instruction than you would with AFF. You’ll also have about 15 minutes of ground instruction before each jump during training.

After the first two static line jumps you’ll learn to pull a practice rip cord but the static line will deploy the real chute. After three chute deployment practice jumps you will move on to an actual free fall. You start at a low altitude with immediate chute deployment. With each progressive jump your altitude will get higher and chute deployment will be delayed more. By the end you’ll qualify for your A license so you can free fall whenever you want!

Videography Packages Focus on Your Whole Experience


Your friends can get some good shots of you when you near the ground. But you will likely want some good images from a mile high to round out your memory book. We have two different videography packages you can add on to relive your dive over and over!

One option is to have a camera flyer jump with you to capture your entire dive. Or you can opt to have your instructor wear a GoPro/Handycam camera to shoot only during the jump. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Camera Flyers record your thoughts before and after the jump, and capture the plane boarding and actual dive.
  • They jump and land before you so they can shoot from the best angles.
  • Camera Flyers cost a little more than GoPro because there will be an extra flyer.
  • To ensure availability, reserve a Camera Flyer ahead of time.
  • Either way, you will be given a CD with still images and your jump edited and set to music. Do with it what you will.
  • Everyone can hear you scream on video. Swear creatively.

The Person Behind the Flying Camera


Nobody ever thinks about the person who put together the skydiving video. We always critique what we like about it and what we would have done differently. But think about what the camera flyer had to do to get those shots.

First of all, before they even landed the camera flying gig, they had to jump enough times to be able to focus a camera enough to get a clear shot while hurtling through the air. It can take upwards of 50 jumps to even reach that point. Not to mention mastering the art of choosing and focusing all the right images to make an interesting video. Nobody wants to watch a ten minute long video of just the skydiver’s face. They want scenery, they want to see what the ground looks like as it rushes closer.

The camera flyer had to jump first and land first and get turned and twisted around fast enough to shoot the flyer as they plummet. It is not easy, but we all expect the video at the end to be perfect. And it is. You go camera dude.
