Fort Lauderdale is a skydiver’s dream city


Fort Lauderdale is a tremendous place to go skydiving. The city sits right on the Atlantic Ocean just north of Miami. The city burns with nightlife, tropical weather, world-class beaches, and old Florida wildlife. The city is 30 miles north of South Beach, the port of Miami, and the art-deco sense of Miami. There are also beaches along Fort Lauderdale that are world class as well. The Tarpon River runs right through the city providing good boating and fishing. The weather stays sunny logging on average 3,000 hours of sunshine annually. For those that love sports, the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League play in the neighboring BB&T Center, while the International Swimming Hall of Fame makes its home in the city. With the ocean view and all-year sun, Fort Lauderdale is the perfect place to get your skydiving fix.

Fort Lauderdale Tandem Parachuting

Check out our Tandem Jumps today


Tandem Jumps are the best way for beginner skydivers to get in the air and experience what it’s like to free fall from the sky. Tandem jumps are mostly recommended due to the fact that all responsibilities for the jump fall on the instructor. Parachuting.com Fort Lauderdale only employs Federal Aviation Administration certified instructors on tandem jumps, so… basically the most experienced skydiver around will prepare you for your first jump. Tandem jumps are also great for those casual jumpers as you can enjoy the experience without the responsibility. The views from 14,000 feet up are amazing, the conversations later in the day will be spectacular.

Some things to keep in mind:
You must arrive at your drop zone before you actually jump, or they will leave without you. I’m kind-of kidding, you should really get acclimated with your surroundings, and where you will get picked up at. Your instructor will be there, they will get you fitted and discuss any issues you may have with the flight prior to boarding the plane. You ascend to 10,000 feet with the instructor attached to you.

And… what you will need:
A few other must-haves that the instructor will have for you include goggles, a passenger harness, four points to attach – two on the shoulders, two on the hips, a container with a main parachute, a drogue parachute, a reverse chute, and an Automatic Activation Device that will monitor the skydiver’s speed and altitude and will open in case of an emergency – got all that?

Fans of the drop zone

Skydiving.com Fort Lauderdale offers a stylish drop zone where friends and family can meet and greet you after you’ve fulfilled your lifelong dream of skydiving. The drop zones generally have comfortable seating both inside and outside if you wish to watch the plane take off. Some have other amenities including food service, picnic tables, and indoor seating. Jumpers can bring lunch, drinks, and other snacks to ham it up after you complete your stunning landing. Plunging 14,000 feet can make anyone hungry, so make sure you come prepared, but I would always eat after you fall, not before, cause that could be messy.

Try our videography option

Don’t forget you can videotape the strange faces you make as you free fall with the wind whipping through your cheeks. The people at Skydiving.com Fort Lauderdale encourage you to bring cameras to take pictures with your instructor, before, during, and after your jump. There are also videography options as well that can be purchased through skydiving.com Fort Lauderdale so you can always watch and feel the thrill that it was jumping out of an airplane. Videography sessions can be purchased by utilizing gift certificates as well, so make sure you consider those as gifts for the adrenaline junkie in your family.

B.A.S.E. jumping is not for the faint of heart

B.A.S.E. jumping is a different form of skydiving where you literally jump from a building, antenna, span, or earth (cliff). It is seen as on the fringes of the sport of skydiving, but has picked up momentum in the past decade as shown in the media and movies. B.A.S.E. Jumping is still prohibited in most areas, but there are those daredevils that love to break the law as much as they love to skydive and will find a way to traverse structures never jumped from before. Modern B.A.S.E. jumping was created in 1978 when the first B.A.S.E. jumps were filmed from El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. It has since become a tremendous adventure sport all over the world. In 2010 a Guinness Book of World records stunt took place when 53 B.A.S.E. jumpers jumped from a cliff in Norway. B.A.S.E. is a great way to segue into skydiving, for more call Parachuting.com Fort Lauderdale.

Solo Parachuting Academy in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Wanna learn skydiving the right way? Skydiving Academy!


Our Skydiving Academy will ultimately show you the right, and wrong, way to skydive. We offer a multitude of types of skydiving instruction, Accelerated Free Fall training, and Static Line Progression. These classes will show you skydiving from multiple perspectives and can be fun for those who want to skydive solo, or skydive professionally. All classes are instructed by Federal Aviation Administration certified skydivers providing the customer the ability to receive certification from the FAA.

Accelerated Free Fall training is certainly a faster way in the academy toward getting your skydiving certification than the Static Line Progression. The course is seven steps with students instructed on varying degrees of solo skydives, with the instructor jumping along with the student. The first free fall in AFF follows approximately seven hours of ground instruction with the student not performing actual free fall until after three or more jumps. Following the final level seven, the student will enter into the Integrated Student Program where they can continue to apply the principles on their own until they have received the number of jumps needed to apply for their license.

Static Line Progression is a little different. The jumper is actually suspended from the plane and while the student falls away from the aircraft, the main canopy deploys a “Static Line” affixed to the aircraft. The student will experience a two to three minute fall. Static Line Progression is four to five hours of ground instruction where each jump requires a 15 minute debrief after the jump. After two successful jumps, the student can begin deploying their own chute. Three more jumps are completed by demonstrating the capability of the student to pull the ripcord effectively. Upon completion of 25 jumps, the student can apply for their license.

Skydiving Academy can get you your professional licenses quick, and ready for the next stage.

Wanna fight fires while skydiving? Try Smokejumping!

Smokejumpers are professional firefighters that use their skydiving skills to basically jump into fires. Smokejumpers usually fight fires when the fire is extremely remote, or has just begun. Smokejumpers also assist the forestry service, land management, and other organizations when they are not fighting fires. Smokejumping has been around nearly 80 years and has a large presence in the Pacific Northwest and Russian Federation. Smokejumping really took off during WWII when the only entirely African American airborne unit in U.S. history was sent to the West Coast of the U.S. to fight forest fires set by Japanese balloons.

There are currently nine smokejumping crews in the U.S., seven operated by the United States Forest Service, and two by the Bureau of Land Management. Smokejumping was, at one time, associated with the military when in the 1940’s Major William C. Lee established the 101st Airborne Division. The Mann-Gulch Fire in 1949 is a part of smokejumping lore when, in Helena, Montana, 13 firefighters – 12 of them smokejumpers – died in a blaze that set the stage for modern smokejumping safety rules. The 1952 movie Red Skies in Montana was partly based on the disaster. Smokejumping is dangerous, but one way that a professional skydiver can utilize their training.

Parachuting.com Fort Lauderdale Videos and Imagery

Take the experience with you forever with an imagery package


Parachuting.com Fort Lauderdale wants you to remember your skydiving adventure with options available to record the experience with imagery packages available for purchase along with the skydive. Options include a videographer that will jump with you and record everything from start to finish. Or, a GoPro/Handycam in which the skydiving instructor will be equipped to record your actions with a more up close, personal, and in depth perspective.

Both packages are competitively priced with the videographer option a little more costly. The camera flyer will record all your thoughts, emotions, etc., from the ground until you make your descent from the plane jumping right before you do to get the best perspective of your flight including screams, yelps, and crazy face contortions as you whip through the air. All videos will be accompanied by music and edited right at the drop zone ready for you to take home when you can stand up from excitement. It is best to reserve this option ahead of time. Take home your once in a lifetime adventure and relive it over and over again.

Don’t forget about the cameraman.


What about those guys that jump out the plane with the camera gear? Well…. What about them? They are always around, filming tandem jumps, AFF training videos, and beginning classes. Let’s not take these guys for granted. It’s a great way to earn extra money, but most camera jumpers won’t make any money until they are proficient at filming. It’s a lot harder than it looks. Obviously you want to do your homework and find a mentor. You don’t want to buy expensive equipment and not be able to do anything with it because you didn’t ask the right questions.

When it comes to camera flying, The U.S. Parachute Association states that jumpers with a camera would have at least a C-license with 200 jumps with 50 of those with the equipment you intend to use. Also keep in mind that, with a camera on, you will be adding an extra five lbs. on average that will exert 30+ lbs. of force in the air, so make sure you stretch your neck and back muscles. There is no actual camera flyer rating, so research is imperative. There are many skilled videographers in the field.
