All fun, no extra hassle with Tandem Skydiving!


The best skydive for first-timers
Skydiving is as intense as it is exciting. Here at Parachuting.com Des Moines, we understand that guests may experience hesitation before making one of the best decisions of their lives. As a result, we offer Tandem Skydiving, the easy, secure method by which individuals can skydive while a skydiving expert, trained by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), dives tandem to you. All the logistical responsibility is accounted for by your tandem, certified authority!

Secure excitement from the very beginning
We suggest you arrive earlier than your scheduled jump. Meet your instructor, who will help you into your passenger harness. View a short educational video, then with family and friends watching, board our specialized skydiving aircraft, and take off into Des Moines skies!

When your plane approaches apex height, your instructor will ensure the security of your harness attach points, and you will move together toward the doorway. Suddenly, you’re airborne, an endeavor guaranteed to surpass anything you’ve before experienced! You can expect your free fall to last about thirty seconds. From 6,000 feet above the ground, your controlled, parachute-assisted descent will allow you to witness to the best of Des Moines panoramic landscape below. Your drop from the clouds will conclude with an epic landing, and once your feet return to earth, join friends and family and celebrate your accomplishment!

The ideal equipment makes for the ideal skydive
Parachuting.com Des Moines provides you with all of the professional-grade equipment you need to facilitate a safe, scintillating dive, from takeoff to landing! Your passenger harness secures you to your tandem instructor at four secure points, and through flight goggles you can spot the drogue parachute (specifically designed to slow the descent of two skydivers in unison), your main parachute, and your reserve parachute. In the event of any unforeseen complications, our state-of-the-art Automatic Activation Device (AAD), present at each jump, can automatically deploy your reserve parachute when you reach a specified, predetermined altitude.

Solo Skydiving Academy in Des Moines, Iowa

Tricks of the trade at the Skydiving Academy!


The quickest distance between you and complete skydiving mastery is the Skydiving Academy! To take the next step toward your solo or professional skydiving enterprises, you’ll want to trust the Skydiving Academy to impart skydive-particular knowledge, including the details of Accelerated Free fall (AFF) and Static Line Progression.

Here at Parachuting.com Des Moines, we understand that skydiving is nothing without safety. Our USPA-certified staff upholds professional, industry-wide standards.

Accelerated Free fall (AFF)


Accelerated Free fall (AFF) is a complete course consisting of seven distinctive steps, where students are progressively trusted with increasing skydiving responsibility.

At roughly 12,000 feet above ground, students will jump alongside two instructors, practicing Harness Hold Training before parachute deployment. Instructors will maintain solid grips on students’ packs until deployment. Students may experience 50 seconds of free fall.

Levels 1-3 necessitate the assistance of two instructors, and students will learn altitude awareness, body position, stability, and effective canopy deployment, among other essential skills.Levels 4-7 are characterized by continued skydives, which teach students more advanced maneuvers, including turns, forward movement, docking onto others, and “Superman” exits.

Static Line Progression (S/L)


Static Line Progression (S/L) entails an abbreviated jump from 3,000 feet, where students participate in exits while suspended from the aircraft.

4-5 hours of ground instruction precede the first jump, one made from 3,000 feet. Students are soon instructed to deploy their own chutes, and pull “dummy” ripcords to simulate in-air capacity. A “Clear and pull” jump is followed by a “10-second delay” jump, after which time successive jumps launch from respectively higher altitudes. After 25 jumps, students apply for A Licenses.
