This Sky Was Made For You And Me


When we jump over the outskirts of Cleveland, Ohio, we’re looking out over the countryside that inspired James Fenimore Cooper to invent the historical novel, along the way becoming our first environmentalist. The 1969 Cuyahoga River fire here precipitated creation of the Environmental Protection Agency and the entire body of environmental regulation in force today.

We normally operate too far from downtown to pick out many in-town landmarks. But as you hang under your canopy, you can reflect on Cleveland’s achievements. The nation’s foundry and machining base, anchored here and at other major towns between New York and Chicago, incubated the railroads in the 19th century and then cars, trucks and airplanes in the 20th century. Cleveland hosted the Thompson Trophy air races in the 1920s and 1930s, and watched the Army and Navy compete on even footing with private shops–the NASCAR teams of their day–to make the fastest airplanes.

Let Us Introduce You To Life In The Sky


Come out for a tandem jump, modern sport parachuting’s ideal way to introduce you to the skies above your home planet. It’s easy and fun, and you don’t assume any mortal responsibility, since you’ll be harnessed to a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified instructor, who’ll make all the important decisions between the airplane and the ground.

You’ll need to arrive at the drop zone about an hour in advance of flight time. Then we’ll give you a preflight briefing and suit you up. Suiting up may mean nothing more than putting on a pair of goggles. You’ll see divers who always jump in boots, overalls and helmets, and others who don’t. We hope you’ll pay attention to the briefing. You’ll learn important things, like what to expect in the moments after you leave the airplane, and how to land safely.

Your Ride In The Sky

Now you’ll hop into the airplane and ride up to drop height, somewhere between 10,000 and 14,000 feet. During the climb, the instructor will attach the two of you into a single parachute load. At the planned altitude, upwind of the drop zone, out you’ll go. You will freefall for about half a minute, zooming down through five or six thousand feet. You’ll descent leisurely into the drop zone, and remembering your briefing, position your feet and knees to touch down. If you’ve done it right, it’ll be like hopping off the tailgate of a pickup truck.

Living In Style In The Drop Zone

Assuming you’ve brought witnesses to your adventure, we’ve left them at the drop zone, where they’ll be made as comfortable as the facilities permit. Sometimes, depending on the location, there are places to wait indoors. Sometimes there are food vendors nearby. But it’s a pretty day or we wouldn’t be jumping. You did pack a picnic lunch, didn’t you? With a sandwich for your instructor? Depending on the needs of your entourage and your plans, ask us in advance about the accommodations at the drop zone. We’ve been there before and are delighted to help.

Turn Your Adventure Into An Archive

You may feel the need to document your first jump with an action video recording that shows the entire event. We’re all set up to do this, but the best footage is acquired by a third person, skilled both in skydiving and shooting moving pictures. So if this is something you’re going to want, we need to talk about it in advance.

Remember that a tandem jump can be paid for by redeeming a gift certificate, and you can buy gift certificates to give the special people in your life a tandem jump of their own.

What Happens To Me After This?

Well, first, we want to see you earn that USPA A license, your ticket to the active sport skydiving scene. By the time you’ve earned your A ticket, you’ll be a fully trained, self-confident jumper, prepared to participate in some of our more challenging activities.

We strive to think up new and different things to do, alone and then in groups during free fall. The least you want to do is learn to somersault in free fall and recover to a stable diving posture. You’ll learn steer yourself around in the sky.

Work your way up to maneuvers involving a dozen or more skydivers, and you’ll be creating truly cinema-worthy action.

And then we have wingsuits, adding to your lift during free fall, inspired by Ma Nature’s prototype, the flying squirrel. Learn to fly a wingsuit and all kinds of new possibilities will open for you.

You could gravitate toward the BASE side of the sport, in which people jump off buildings, antennas, bridges (spans), or cliffs (earth). BASE jumping adds complications, like very short descent times, like very small drop zones with narrow approaches. These jumps make an airplane jump onto a wide open prairie drop zone look tame. They’re not for everybody.

Solo Parachuting Academy in Cleveland OH

Earn Your A License Through Our Skydiving Academy


Skydiver training is special, intensely personal and largely self paced. The first thing your FAA-certified instructors want to see is how you keep your composure after leaving the airplane. You’re hurtling at about 120 knots through open space with absolutely nothing to hold onto. So what are you doing with your body? Can you remember to pull a ripcord? Is this, in fact, the sport for you? Your instructors are watching.

Sign Up For AFF And Start Skydiving Immediately

Advanced Free Fall (AFF) training starts with an actual skydive. On your first three training jumps, you’ll go out of the airplane with two instructors holding onto your harness throughout the free fall. By your third jump, they’ll be satisfied that you can read the altimeter and pull your ripcord. After those first three jumps, you’ll be expected to demonstrate progressive skills, observed by jump masters in the air and others on the ground.

You’ll be working your way through a seven-step curriculum. Each step, called a targeted learning objective (TLO), requires an instructor’s sign-off before continuing to the next, and each TLO builds on the knowledge from earlier lessons. Ground school sessions are part of the training. There’s a huge emphasis on safety in every lesson.

Train Like A Paratrooper In The Static Line Progression

A static line trainee goes out by himself on his (or her) first jump, but the static line relieves him of a huge responsibility: it opens his chute for him.

Ground school–four or five hours of it–and the seven TLOs are part of static line progression. After your sixth jump, you will have mastered the posture of a static line jump and demonstrated your ability to pull a ripcord. Now you’ll start to make some jumps with delayed chute deployment–you’ll be skydiving.

So Now I Like Skydiving. Where Can This Skill Take Me?

How to rebuild your life around your parachute? Well, first, you could stay with us. By the time you’ve earned your A ticket, you’re part of the family here. Sign up for advanced training and become a jump instructor. We stay busy, but we’re doing what we love. So far, we haven’t convinced any of the local first responders that they need para-rescuers on their team, but we haven’t given up yet. Someday, you could be a para-paramedic, a servant to mankind with a severe adrenalin craving.

And then there are the smokejumpers, forest firefighters who parachute into inaccessible areas to suppress wildfires. Most of them are on state payrolls, and if your state maintains such a team, you’re likely to be contracted out to other states to fight big fires. And there are a few gigs for exhibition and competitive skydivers. It’s a small field with a tiny window of opportunity, but there are people doing it. Want to jump on somebody else’s dime, as often as you like? That somebody would be our Uncle Sugar. If you’re still young enough, and willing to commit, you can go skydiving in the service of your country.

Parachuting.com Cleveland Videos and Imagery

Make Your Own History With Videos Of You Skydiving


When you go skydiving for the first time, most likely on a tandem jump, you’re making history and it rightfully belongs to be recorded for your family and friends. Our imagery service can produce this movie of you in action. You need to arrange the coverage in advance, of course, because a third person will be jumping with you and your tandem host instructor. That third person, the videographer, will record your preflight briefing.

Then he’ll jump just before of you and your instructor, to shoot your exit from the airplane. He (or she) will ride all the way down with you, recording your conversation and your reactions. Later, we will edit the video and add background music. On a DVD, this short movie will probably be the most distinctive souvenir you’ve ever owned, a genuine source of entertainment for your descendants.

Alternately, at lower cost, we can produce a skydiving video from Gopro/Handycam footage recorded by a unit worn by your tandem instructor. This option forfeits cutaway images like exiting the airplane and landing, but still makes an entertaining record of the event.

The Paravideographer: Could This Be You Someday?


First, are you somebody who believes that the camera, whether it takes still or moving pictures, is a tool for creative expression? You could be that person, the guy or gal with the camera, the one the rest of us perform for? You could be the reason the rest of us went on the jump.

After all, all of our video shooters had to start somewhere. And if you’re going to record action footage, who better to hang around with than the skydivers. Everything we do is the makings of lively, exciting imagery, guaranteed to rivet the attention of viewers.

Meet a shooter and he or she will have an impressive jump log; life in free fall is truly second nature to the videographer. He can set up his landing approach with one hand and half his attention and shoot broadcast-quality video with the other.
