Tandem Jumps: The Ultimate Introduction


There’s no better way to begin skydiving than with a tandem jump. Why are tandem jumps recommended for beginners? Because they allow the functional elements of the dive to be in the hands of a USPA certified instructor. That’s like being guided through the air by a sky-wizard who knows just what to do. This gives you the chance to really take in the experience without worry, as you view the world from 14,000 feet Above Ground Level (AGL).

Brief Guide For First-timers

  • Arrive at the drop zone earlier than your scheduled jump. This will let you get acclimated to the facilities and determine where your family or friends may wait for you. You know they’ll want to have their cameras ready when you make your first big landing!
  • Get to know your Skydive Instructor. They’ll be your aerial buddy and let you know what to expect, such as proper body positions for the dive.
  • You’ll watch an instructional video on tandem jumping
  • You’ll be outfitted in the proper gear: goggles, passenger harness, main parachute, and drogue parachute.
  • When ready, hop aboard the aircraft with your instructor
  • Enjoy scenic view number one, as you ascend to jump elevation in the plane
  • You and your instructor will move toward the doorway ready to take that epic leap.
  • Take in scenic view number two, as you float through the air!
  • Enjoy your safe landing and look awesome as your family and friends snap photos and take videos. You’re the hero of the day!

Welcome to the Drop Zone

Typically, our drop zones offer a comfortable seating area for your friends and family, and some even offer food, drinks and other amenities for sale. Call us at 559-512-3051 for specifics.

On top of that, we offer other services such as videography. Skydiving videography takes a special kind of skill and we deliver on that! Getting good footage on the ground is a challenge in its own right; imagine doing it while in the sky! That’s the talent we offer. Remember, skydiving is a quick experience and a lot of exciting things will be happening to you simultaneously. It’ll be a challenge to recall everything that happened to you, so you can let us lend a helpful hand by locking down those memories on film.

Plus, you can share your adventure with your friends—come on, we know you want to make them a little jealous. Whether you go the AFF route or try tandem, we have you covered. There’s even a pre-jump interview, because who doesn’t love a little before-and-after contrast? That’s right, the videographer will even make it to the ground before you do and film your spectacular landing.

Don’t Forget Our Tandem Diving Gift Certificates

You can share the sky-love! We offer gift certificates for parachuting. Surprise a loved one with this unique experience. Level Up Your Skydiving Game! Because skydiving is so much more than leaping out of a plane, it’s a sport!

Solo Parachuting Academy in Fresno, California - Fresno Parachuting

Skydiving Academy: Your Path to Aerial Greatness


Our instruction is facilitated by USPA certified skydivers. Thereby allowing the customer to train to become eligible to receive certification from the USPA. The training in our Skydiving Academy is comprehensive and progresses at the most suitable pace for the skydiver within the FAA mandated timeframes.

Accelerated Free Fall (AFF)

So you’re ready to become a sky-wizard and want to elevate your diving game? Interested in going solo, now that you are the experienced and world-weary tandem diver that you are? Perhaps you want to become a certified skydiver? Perhaps the student is ready to become the master and would like to train others in the art of the dive. The Skydiving Academy will teach you how. AFF is the more accelerated version of instruction when compared to methods such as Static Line Progression (S/L). It’s a 7-step program, but don’t let that number overwhelm you. The first free fall in AFF may be executed following seven or so hours of ground instruction, compared to S/L where the student will not perform an actual free fall until after 3 or more jumps demonstrating a requisite technique.

First free fall in AFF (small subtitle):

  • Commenced at 10,000-12,000 feet AGL
  • Facilitated by two AFF instructors jumping alongside the student skydiver
  • Instructors will maintain physical contact by practicing Harness Hold Training (HHT)
  • HHT is the act of gripping the student by their harness. Don’t worry, we got you!
  • HHT will be executed until the student deploys their chute
  • Prompts to deploy the chute will commence between 4,000 and 6,000 feet AGL
  • The instructors will prompt the student to deploy. If they do not, the instructors will encourage them by placing their hand on the deployment handle
  • If the student still does not deploy, the Instructor will facilitate deployment

Static Line Progression

This is basically a jump commenced at 3,000 feet AGL wherein the student skydiver executes a suspended exit from the plane. As the student skydiver falls away from the aircraft, the main canopy is deployed by a ‘Static Line’ affixed to the aircraft and the student will experience a 2 to 3-minute fall.

Process for S/L progression instruction:

  • 4 to 5-hour ground instruction
  • First S/L Jump commenced at 3,000 ft. AGL
  • Each successive jump will require 15 minutes ground instruction
  • Following execution of two effective S/L jumps, students will be instructed in deploying their own chute
  • 3 more S/L jumps are executed while demonstrating the capability of the student to pull the ripcord by pulling a ‘dummy’ ripcord effectively
  • The static line is still facilitating the deployment of the chute at this stage
  • Once the previous steps have been executed effectively, it is time for the student to demonstrate a free fall
  • Successive jumps follow this protocol with the elevation being higher each time and the time delay being longer
  • Upon completion of 25 jumps, the student may apply for their A license and be cleared of student status

Our training will set you on the right path!

Parachuting.com Fresno, California Videos and Imagery

Your Head Will Be in the Clouds – We Got Your Memories Covered!


At Parachuting.com we offer Imagery Packages to capture your whole experience through the power of technology. Sensory overload is a normal thing to experience while skydiving, but no worries, we’ll help you preserve your memories.

We offer two imagery packages to be specific:

  • A videography service where a camera flyer will jump out the plane right with you.
  • The GoPro/Handycam experience where your skydiving Instructor jumps with you for an “up-close-and-personal experience.

The Videography Experience is competitively priced, though a little costlier than the GoPro experience because the pro-camera flyer will be with you every step (and jump) of the way. They’ll record your thoughts before the jump and leap from the plane just before you, so they can get some nice shots of the screaming, freefalling and the brand new you! Then they’ll land before you, so they can capture your final moments at touch down. Finally, your after-thoughts will be recorded—a fun comparison to the old you who was about to leap from the plane just a moment ago!

Afterwards, a video of the skydiving adventure will be edited and set to music at the drop zone and will be available to take home with you—typically in less than an hour. You’ll be given a CD that will not only have the final edited version of your jump, but also still images captured throughout your freefall. Since we live in the era of social media, you’ll have the chance to upload it and share again, again, and again!
It doesn’t end there! The CD can be utilized to create postcards, mugs, mousepads, posters; even blankets, pillows and throws!

Camera Flyer – The Electronic Eyes in the Skies


Where would skydiving footage be without camera flyers? The answer is it would be non-existent of course. The art of being a camera flyer combines the disciplines of skydiving and videography. Both challenging on their own, imagine the skill it takes to pull off both simultaneously! Imagine capturing dynamic, aerial movements while taking a 14,000-foot fall.
The camera flyer may record recreation jumps and film a first-timer’s experience, for example, helping them capture an exhilarating memory forever. They may also be a member of a competitive diving team. It is crucial to capture their crew’s aerial formations. After all, the judges can’t score what they can’t see!

There aren’t any hard rules, per se, about becoming a camera flyer, but there are certainly suggestions:

  • Become a professional skydiver! This one should be pretty obvious. 50 to 100 jumps are common recommendations before you pick up the cam.
  • Shop around and do your homework when it comes to the filming equipment you need. Will you be filming digital or analog for example? Will you be filming for a dive team or recreational jumpers?
  • Do a few jumps with the camera equipment to get comfortable before you get into some serious recording. Indoor wind-tunnel training with your gear might be a good idea here.
