Skydive over the Cajun aesthetic of Red Stick’s swagger!
Set in the jade green forests and snowy white mountains of Colorado, Denver stands as the fastest growing major city of the United States. Home to impressive architecture and glorious natural views, the city has crafted a perfect harmony between the organic and inorganic. From the spearheaded complex structure of the Denver Art Museum to the magnificent display of the Rocky Mountains, the city has an interesting aura about it. The best example of this is the Learning Cube, a simple framed structure built of iron, wood, and stone. It stands alongside a collection of urban farm buildings made by students from the University of Colorado, Denver. The city also acts a merger of varying landscapes. Centered between the High Plains, Rocky Mountains, and dense forest, Denver is a sight to behold from above. A Skydiving experience will give you a full scope of the gorgeous melody of this city.
Experience the Heart Pumping Thrill of Skydiving
Perfect for beginners, Tandem Jumps involve leaping from the plane while strapped to a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified instructor. You’ll dive from 14,000 feet and fully experience the adrenaline-fueled peacefulness that comes with jumping into the sky.
From Take Off to Landing:
You’ll arrive at the drop zone prior to your scheduled jump. From here, you’ll have time to get accustomed to the facilities. At this point, you’ll meet your skydive instructor who will brief you on proper body position and general preparation. A short video will be played explaining what’s to be expected on a Tandem jump. After the video, you’ll gear up and board the plane alongside your instructor. The plane will ascend to the jump elevation and the instructor will attach him/herself to you on four different points. Together, you and the instructor will move toward the doorway and jump from 10,000 plus feet. You will experience about 30 seconds of freefall. At 6,000 feet, the instructor will deploy the parachute and you will begin your tranquil descent to the drop zone. After a perfect and epic landing, you’ll celebrate your crowning achievement with friends and family.
Goggles will be given to you to protect your eyes from the wind. You will wear a passenger harness so that an instructor can connect to you via 4 points. These points are located with two on the shoulders and two on the hips. You will also be provided with a container that houses the main parachute, Drogue chute, reserve chute, and an Automatic Activation Device.
Landing Amidst the High Plains
Skydiving is just as much about the destination as it is the journey. The drop zone sets the course of your scenic high-velocity trip back to earth. Hidden amongst the snowy mountain tops and the wide open plains, you’re guaranteed to drop into a gorgeous landscape. Gently floating over evergreen treetops, your extreme free fall will end with an epic landing amidst a beautiful scenic view. The drop zones are located within a reasonable distance from the city, making your return a simple venture. We choose landing areas that are open and easy to access, making them superb meeting places for friends and family. Upon landing, our crew will help celebrate your successful dive. Enough hesitation. Experience the beauty that only Parachuting.com Denver has to offer when it comes to the jump. From takeoff to landing, our seasoned instructors will help guide you.
Conquering the Eternal Blue
It’s one thing to leap off the plane, diving into the deep blue of the sky, it’s another to conquer it. With the invention of the Wingsuit, human beings have gained the ability to glide freely through the air. By increasing the surface area of the human body, Wingsuits grant a steep increase to lift, allowing the diver to have complete control over their descent. This technology allows for people to not only dive, but to soar through the air. Wingsuit divers can utilize straight arrow dives to increase velocity. With a simple spreading of the limbs, this downward momentum shifts into an ascension-decreasing velocity. With these simple mechanics, Wingsuit divers have mastery over their dive. Swooping and shifting seamlessly through the air, these divers move with such smoothness and grace that you would swear they were capable of flight. This technique is being researched by Parachuting.com for the possibility of being added to our Skydiving Academy. Professional divers utilize this technique, among others, to further the extreme sport’s popularity, while perfecting its art. These demonstrations are captured through sky videography and photography, the kind of packages offered in our Imagery Packages.
Our Skydiving Academy uses two main methods of skydive training. The first is Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) training which progresses students at a suitable pace. The second is Static Line Progression (S/L) which eases new divers into the process little by little. Both types of training are mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration to certify divers into being able to handle solo dives.
You’ll Appreciate our Light-hearted Approach to Skydiving Training!
If you believe in your future in the air, enroll in our AFF program. Learn the SAFE way to jump and you’ll never fear diving again. Be confident every time you step out of an aircraft at 14,000. Because you’re in control of your body, and emotions. If you want to improvise in the air, or skysurf, or freefly, training is an absolute necessity. Let our USPA certified instructors show you how to do it the right way, no matter your preference.
AFF training is facilitated by two instructors and involves seven levels of education. Levels 1-3 focus on altitude awareness, body position, stability, pull sequence and effective chute deployment. This is all done while being harnessed to an instructor who will prompt the student during the fall on practicing these skills. At level 3 of instruction, the student will be released to fall on their own. Levels 4-7 focus on “in air skills” such as turns, forward movement, docking with others, and performing “superman” exits from the aircraft. By level 7, students enter qualification, where they will be expected to perform 25 safe and secure jumps at which point they will be allowed to apply for their “A” license.
Through this method of training, students perform dives with a static line fixed to the aircraft which deploys the main parachute at a set time. This allows for roughly two to three minutes of free fall. Each jump will involve 15 minutes of ground instruction. During these jumps, students will train by pulling a “dummy” ripcord. After full clearance of being able to perform this ability, students will demonstrate their ability to free fall. During the first jump, students facilitate the pull sequence upon immediate exit of the aircraft. During the second jump, there’s a 10 second delay given to chute deployment. This delay will increase along with a heightening elevation. By the 25th jump, students are able to apply for their skydiving license.
Diving Headfirst into the Smoke
The invention of skydiving has made an impact on various fields of society. The largest of these impacts is to the field of fire and rescue. Smokejumpers are wildland firefighters who parachute into far off and hard to reach areas in order to contain wildfires. These brave men and women work as First Responders in the event of a forest fire. These rescuers arrive shortly after ignition and extinguish the blaze before it becomes harmful to the public. This specialized training allows the prevention of immense disaster before it can even get off the ground. Smokejumpers stand as the first defense against inferno. Through effective skydiving and parachuting, smokejumpers are able to maneuver through the evergreen pines and blazes to proficiently land on the ground below and begin flame suppression. The training is extensive, but since the establishment of this section of rescuers, wildfire prevention has seen a significant increase. Along with many other positions, skydiving certification is a great mark to have in different fields and can help many to survive any disasters in the future. Smokejumpers, paratroopers and pararescuers have greatly improved our ability to prevent danger. Join this endeavor and help protect those in need by signing up with the Skydiving Academy today!

Skydive into a Video You’ll Treasure Forever!
Parachuting.com Denver offers two options when it comes to documenting the adventure of the dive. These are a videography service and a GoPro service. With the GoPro option, your instructor will be equipped with a camera fixed to their helmet, providing an extreme perspective to all the heart-pounding action of your first dive.
This service involves a professional camera flyer who will join your dive. The camera flyer will record your thoughts from ground to takeoff. While on board, they’ll record your thoughts seconds before the drop. The camera flyer drops slightly before you to get the best vantage point in recording your journey back to the ground. With this method, every second of your blood rushing adventure will be captured. After filming your superb landing, the camera flyer will record your final thoughts before heading to the editing bay. Here, your video will be given a soundtrack and carefully edited to ensure a flawless display of your entire experience. You’ll be given a copy within the hour which will also include various stills of the event that you can share with your family and friends. Sign up for one of our Imagery Packages to capture the magic of your skydiving experience!
Filming the Action
Skydiving’s extreme action is perfect for the world of film. Millions of skydiving compilations have hit the web since the invention of GoPro cameras. The Camera Flyer’s world is intense and involves the unique skill of being able to separate your attention. Camera Flyers fly close to the diver, backs to the ground and divide their focus between recording the dive and their diving instruments so they can perfectly time when to set their chutes and land. This requires them to be fully familiar with their equipment. Actions are instinctual as they capture the madness of the dive on film. This familiarity for their equipment extends further, depending on the dive. Different dives require different forms of recording equipment, due to the difference in velocity and elevation. This also means that Camera Flyers are required to be comfortable with all forms of skydiving in order to flawlessly follow in front of the diver and get all of the magic on film. So the next time you dive with a certified camera flyer, remember, they have to go through everything you do and then do it backwards! Camera divers are some of the most courageous within the world of skydiving.
