Why Plummet through the Skies of Fort Collins?


Fort Collins, Colorado is located 65 miles north of Denver, and sits alongside the eastern edges of the mighty Rocky Mountains. Home to Colorado State University, Fort Collins has no shortage of things to do in addition to your skydiving adventure.

Why is Fort Collins such a unique place to skydive? The primary boon is the Rockies. There are few places in the United States that offer the opportunity to free fall beside a mountain range, let alone the beautiful Rockies.

Directly to the east of Fort Collins is Horsetooth Mountain, topped by the famous Horsetooth Rock. Its peak stands at over 7,000 feet, which means that, in all likelihood, you will leap from a plane at an altitude higher than its highest cliffs, soar below at a screaming pace, and open your parachute mid-mountain. This is just a taste of what you will experience when you choose Parachuting.com Fort Collins.

Fort Collins, Colorado Tandem Parachuting

Tandem Jumps with Parachuting.com Fort Collins


There are few experiences in the world that can pack an extraordinary level of intense feelings and emotions, adrenaline, and pure enjoyment into a matter of a couple of minutes. Skydiving is one of them. If you are a first-time free faller, or do not have a lot of knowledge on what it takes to jump out of a flying airplane and live, then we encourage you to try out our tandem jumps here at Parachuting.com Fort Collins.

When you plummet to the Earth with us, you will do so knowing that the functional aspects of the dive are facilitated by a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified instructor. In other words, you will be as safe as possible for falling out of an aircraft at 10,000+ feet above ground level (AGL).

What to Expect
When you choose to participate in one of our tandem jumps, there are a few things that you should be aware of:

  • You should arrive at the drop zone earlier than your scheduled jump.
  • This allows you to get familiar with our facilities and the locations of our family/friends waiting areas.
  • You will meet with, and be briefed on what to expect, by your skydiving instructor.
  • How to prepare for the jump, how to properly position your body while in free fall, etc.
  • You will watch a nifty video on tandem skydiving.
  • You will be outfitted in appropriate gear.
  • You will board the aircraft with your instructor, ascend to jump elevation, and your instructor will attach himself to you.
  • You will approach the doorway.
  • It will appear as if you are seated above the back wheel.
  • You jump!
  • You will race toward the ground from 10,000+ feet for roughly 30+ seconds, and reach speeds of up to 120 mph. The parachute will deploy around 5,500 to 6,000 feet, and you will slowly descend toward the drop zone for about six minutes beside the beautiful Rockies.
  • You land in style.
  • Upon landing, you can celebrate the achievement with family and friends.

Tandem Jump Equipment

There is an array of equipment needed for tandem skydiving. Among it includes:

  • Goggles
  • A Passenger Harness
  • A “Backpack” Container with the Following:
    • The Main Parachute
    • A Drogue Chute
    • A Reserve Chute
    • An Automatic Activation Device

Why Our Drop Zones are Ideal

Here at Parachuting.com Fort Collins, we pride ourselves on treating the family and friends of our jumpers just as well as those taking the ultimate leap of faith. We believe that our drop zones truly reflect this.

The vast majority of the time, our drop zones will have comfortable seating inside and out for your family and friends. Certain locations may even have food and drinks for sale, picnic tables, and other amenities. We recommend that you inquire about this upon booking a tandem jump with us.

Photography, Videography, and Other Skydiving Opportunities

We encourage you to invite your family and friends to our drop zones so that they can photograph and film your daring descent from below, while enjoying the comfort of our facilities.

If you would like a complement to your own pictures and videos, then we invite you to utilize our imagery packages! From first person GoPro views to a camera flyer chronicling the action from the plane to the ground, we are happy to provide a unique vantage point that is otherwise unattainable.

We even offer gift certificates for our tandem jumps, as well!

Solo Parachuting Academy in Fort Collins, Colorado

Skydiving Academy Provided by Parachuting.com Fort Collins


For anybody who is serious about pursuing skydiving as a potential career, or would simply like to skydive solo in the future, then specialized training is highly recommended. Here at Parachuting.com Fort Collins, we offer a skydiving academy to get you on your way to realizing your free falling dreams.

Our training is truly comprehensive and progressive, and we take into consideration the most suitable pace for you within Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mandated timeframes. Additionally, our skydiving academy is facilitated by FAA certified skydivers, which allows you to train and become eligible to receive certification from the FAA.

With all of this being said, the two main styles in which our training will be observed are Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) and Static Line Progression.

Accelerated Free Fall (AFF)

AFF is considered “accelerated” because it is the quickest way to take a solo skydive. Consisting of seven steps, AFF allows individuals to execute their first free fall after as little as seven hours of ground instruction.

The seven steps in the United States Parachute Association (USPA) mandated AFF Instruction include:

Levels 1-3:

  • Two certified instructors jump alongside the student.
  • Students receive instruction in:
    • Altitude awareness
    • Body position
    • Stability
    • Pull sequence
    • Effective chute deployment
  • Level 3 will see the student being released in actual free fall to fall entirely on their own.

Levels 4-7:

  • Instruction for “in air skills”:
    • Turns
    • Forward movement
    • Docking onto others
    • Performing “Superman” exits from the aircraft

After Level 7, the student enters the Integrated Student Program (ISP). This is to become qualified to apply for their A License.

Static Line Progression (S/L)

S/L is a jump from 3,000 feet Above Ground Level (AGL), where the student executes a suspended exit from the plane. The main canopy is deployed by a “Static Line,” and the student will fall for two to three minutes.

This method begins with four to five hours of ground instruction, the first S/L jump, and successive jumps after 15 minutes of ground instruction each. After two successful S/L jumps, students are instructed to pull their own ripcord. They then must demonstrate this with a dummy ripcord on three more S/L jumps. Only then can the student take their first solo free fall. Students may apply for their A License after 25 successful jumps.

Parachuting.com Fort Collins, Colorado Videos and Imagery

Imagery Packages through Parachuting.com Fort Collins


What good is an exhilarating adventure if you are unable to take pictures and videos to enjoy for years to come? This is why we offer two exclusive imagery packages here at Parachuting.com Fort Collins. They include a third person videography service and a first person GoPro or Handycam experience.

The videography service that we provide involves an experienced skydiver acting as a camera flyer that films your jump from start to landing (yes, even inside the plane before you jump). This is ideal for capturing intense emotions and indescribable excitement.

The first person GoPro or Handycam experience involves a GoPro camera being equipped on the helmet of the skydiving instructor that you are strapped to. This records a first-hand account of your dive so that you can relive it whenever you would like.

Both services are competitively priced, but the videography service is more expensive because of the need for the camera flyer. After the jump, you will be given a CD of your adventure to share with family and friends.

Your Jump from the Camera Flyer’s Perspective


You are ascending rapidly during your first skydiving adventure. Your heart is racing, and you can feel it beating in the back of your throat. You do what you can to gain your composure, but all the while, some jerk with a camera on their head is recording your every move. This is the camera flyer.

It has taken him or her years of training to get into this position, and they have been in your shoes countless times before. Unfortunately for you, this means that they know just the right way to capture your nerves. They may say otherwise, but you are convinced that they are laughing on the inside.

All jokes aside, camera flyers have a rather difficult job to perform. They need to be true masters of their craft in order to have the right camera, correct body position, and even know what to do should an emergency unfold. They are trained to capture your entire adventure, which means that they need to have their eyes focused on you the entire time, while free falling at roughly 120 mph.

There are many great men and women performing this service, and we are grateful for every single one.

Capture your jump for years to come! Call 970-632-2701 today.
