Tandem Skydiving – Newcomers Welcome
Skydiving can make you anxious, looking from the ground up. However, Tandem jumps with Parachuting.com Charlotte transform anxiety into delight. This service is popular for our visitors because it entails the thrill of skydiving while having the security of being strapped to a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified professional.
What Happens During A Tandem Jump?
Arrive at your drop zone before your scheduled time. Your certified instructor will brief you on what to do during your dive, and you’ll also watch a detailed video. After learning about the basics and body postures, you will get suited up in top-quality gear. The instructor will then lead you to board the plane, and you’ll take off and fly to around 10,000 feet Above Ground Level. Getting harnessed to the instructor will put you at ease as your time to jump gets closer. As you move towards the door, your position will be almost above the back wheel of the aircraft. Your Free Fall will last 25-30 seconds going about 120 mph. Descending to around 6,000 feet, the canopy will deploy, slowing your speed for landing. Then, it’s time to celebrate because guess what? You’ve completed the skydive!
Remember the top quality gear we mentioned? Here are the details:
- Four attachment hooks (two on the shoulders & two on the hips)
- Container that includes:
- Main Parachute
- Drogue Chute
- Reserve Chute
- Automatic Activation Device (ADD), speed measurement tool deploying parachute at a certain altitude
These items within your personal “safety packet” prevent major emergencies while skydiving.

Skydiving Videos for Show and Tell!
Free Falling over Charlotte is a journey to be captured on film. We couldn’t give you a skydiving experience without offering the option to do so. Show everyone the thrills of skydiving and they too can join in on feeling the winds in mid-air. At Parachuting.com Charlotte, we have two options for video packages for you to choose from in recording your skydive to take home and share with everyone!
Filming Options Available
While skydiving, you have the option of using a GoPro camera attached to your instructor. Take your viewers on the Free Fall with you with this option, as they will gain a closer view of you and what you’re seeing throughout the dive.
Another option to capture your skydive is to have a professional videographer dive with you to record this extreme activity. Get a full body view of you flying in midair, dashing with the wind.
All videos will be edited when you’ve returned to the drop zone, and uploaded onto a CD for you to take home, complete with soundtrack. You may even get a few still shots to print and post on your wall or set as your new profile pic.
Filming and Flying?! How Do They Do It?
We always say that skydiving can open doors to new opportunities. Our camera flyers are very important to us as they allow our visitors to keep a moment in time that is cherished for decades. Imagine skydiving for the first time, Free Falling with a camera in hand. Pretty scary, right?
Becoming a camera flyer is not easy. With the time and money investments, along with the enormous number of jumps it takes to qualify, (usually 200), you’d be surprised at how these guys make it look so simple. Showing up at the drop zone, greeting customers and following the team around to capture each moment of a visitor’s dive is their task, and they carry it out proudly.
Camera flyers must be well versed in video equipment to know which types are useful in capturing skydiving on a top professional level. In addition, understanding the techniques of skydiving while operating equipment takes a person with major multitasking abilities. Let’s give these guys a big round of applause because so much work, skill, and effort goes into capturing skydiving on camera. Creating memories for divers to enjoy takes a lot of work behind the scenes.
