Skydiving: Why, Oh Why, Would Anyone Do That?!

Well, yes, but not just them, and that’s not all skydiving is about! People from all walks of life come to us at Parachuting.com to feel the rush brought on by free falling, that much is true, but skydiving also provides an inimitable sense of liberation — the kind of freedom one can only hold in his heart after bravely hurdling a seemingly insurmountable obstacle.

See Gilbert Like Never Before!


Leaving from Gilbert, our skydiving pilots ascend to 14,000 feet before most jumps, and from way up there you won’t believe your eyes. You’ll be able to see Phoenix, Phoenix South Mountain Park, San Tan Regional Park, South Maricopa Mountains Wilderness, and even the outskirts of the Tonto National Forest — and that’s just from the plane! Once you take that step out into the big blue sky above Arizona’s beautiful country you’ll wish you could hang in free fall forever! Unfortunately for all of us, gravity is a real buzzkill, but, don’t you worry, because Parachuting.com is here to help you reach new heights!

Gilbert, Arizona Tandem Parachuting

Come Tandem Skydive With Us!


We recommend those just getting starting, to participate in a Tandem jump. In a Tandem skydiving jump, you’ll be strapped in with one of our certified instructors. In this way, we ensure that you have the safest and most enjoyable skydiving experience possible before becoming ready to get solo jump certified.

On a Tandem jump, you’ll meet up with your instructor at the drop zone before your scheduled take off time to walk through appropriate form and give you a run down what to expect. You’ll watch an informational video, as well, before getting outfitted with the necessary equipment and boarding the aircraft.

Once on board, you will ascend to 14,000 feet above ground level, at which point your instructor will attach himself to you and you will prepare your body and mind to jump out of a freakin’ airplane! Free fall from this height can last up to 30 seconds, affording you plenty of time to soak up the view and bathe in the exhilaration and peace that blend together while falling.

After deploying the parachute at around 6,000 feet, you and your instructor will decelerate and glide safely to your drop zone over the course of five to six minutes.

Checklist for Tandem Jumps

  • Goggles
  • Passenger Harness
    • Has four-point harness, which the instructor attaches to you
      • Two on the shoulders, two on the hips
  • Parachute Container
    • Main Parachute
    • Drogue Parachute
      • Smaller parachute attached to the main chute to assist in even, stable deceleration of two jumpers.
    • Reserve Parachute
    • AAD (Automatic Activation Device)
      • Device that will automatically deploy the parachute in the extremely unlikely event of a mid-jump emergency.

Parachuting.com Has Top Notch Drop Zone Swag

After your jump, the butterflies in your stomach will have stirred up a mighty hunger in you and we expect that, ’cause we’ve been there. That’s why we provide all the amenities you could want at our drop zones, which may include food and drink, along with picnic tables for you to rest your haunches on while you grub. Our goal here at Parachuting.com Gilbert, AZ, is to make you as comfortable as possible so that you can have the perfect skydiving experience!

Documenting Your Skydiving Experience

Plus, even if you don’t necessarily want it, your mom, your girlfriend, your best friend, etc., is definitely gonna give you a hard time for not getting more pictures so just take the high road and bring your cameras folks. Get it? Got it? Good!

Solo Parachuting Academy in Gilbert, Arizona - Gilbert Parachuting

Learning to Jump Solo with the Parachuting Academy


For those of you looking to get certified for solo skydiving jumps, your search is over! Parachuting.com Gilbert, AZ, has top-notch training and education programs! Our instructors are certified skydiving veterans licensed to provide you with the training you need to get your own certification.

What Can I Do with a Skydiving Certification?

The certification process has two potential routes: Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) and Static Line Progression. During your first AFF, jump you will ascend to 10,000 feet above ground level, accompanied by two instructors. For this jump, you will still be harnessed to one of your instructors up until the point of parachute deployment, at which time they will prompt you to deploy your parachute yourself and release. This will occur around 5,000 feet after 50 seconds of free fall. AFF certification has seven levels. Over the course of these levels, you will become educated in appropriate skydiving safety and technique, discussing topics such as altitude awareness, stability and parachute deployment.

After completing requirements for Level 7, students will then become enrolled in the Integrated Student Program (ISP). Once in the ISP, students will continue to receive instruction over the course of 25 jumps, after which they will become fully certified for solo skydiving.

Static Line Progression

In the SL system, you will receive instruction that you will ascend only to 3,000 feet at first. Once there, you will safely exit the plane as instructed while attached to a static line, which will automatically deploy your parachute. After completing two of these jumps, you will receive instruction on how to deploy your own parachute before proceeding to complete three more static line jumps while pulling a dummy ripcord. Lastly, you must complete 25 jumps alongside an instructor, much like the AFF process.

Relive Your Jump Over and Over Again!


Skydiving is bound to be an experience that you won’t forget, but why take that chance? With the purchase of one of our video packages, you will be able to share your skydiving experience with your friends and family, make them jealous, challenge them not to live vicariously through your bravery and to go try skydiving for themselves. Watch your own reactions to the various stages of the jump, taking the opportunity to relive those moments for the rest of your life in high definition!

With the purchase of our GoPro video package, your flight instructor, who you will be attached to while skydiving, will take video footage of your reactions from the moment you step into the plane through your descent to the drop zone. This option provides incredible footage that you will definitely want to watch over and over, but if you’re willing to spend a bit more cash for higher-quality footage, then the camera flyer package is also available. With this deal, you and your instructor would jump with a third instructor who will fly with you and take video from a different perspective. We will then provide the footage for you to cherish forever.

Camera Flyers: The Real Heroes Here


Our camera flyers are really, truly, seriously something else. Body control and elevation awareness are core components of any skydiving experience, but as a camera flyer you’ve to got to be doubly focused to get that perfect shot, jump after jump, day in and day out. Typically, solo jump certified camera flyers work for companies like ours, filming first-time tandem jumps or acrobatic jumps performed by skydiving teams. However, these daredevil professionals are sometimes also self-employed as specialty photographers and videographers.

Just think, a camera flyer equipped with a wingsuit can get a footage you just can’t get otherwise, speeding down the face of a mountain to capture the perspective of an eagle swooping down on unsuspecting prey in the valley. More sedate jumps can also afford similarly gorgeous and gratifying footage, leisurely gliding over a canopy of trees for a magazine, or a movie, or as a self-published art piece. Such is the calibre of talent amongst these everyday superheroes with whom we are honored to work.
