Tandem jumps are perfect for beginning skydivers!
Want to experience the thrill of skydiving but nervous about taking the jump? Then a Tandem jump is the perfect way to go! You’ll feel the wonder and excitement of skydiving while secure in the knowledge that an FAA-certified instructor is in control. You get to kick back and relax while a professional does the work, making a Tandem jump the perfect combination of adventure and security. Look around, take in the gorgeous scenery, and focus on the dive while our instructor does all of the important stuff! If you can’t wait to experience that 120 mile per hour free fall but you are still new to the game, Tandem skydiving is the only way to go.
On the day of your jump you will want to arrive early to get familiar with the facility and find out where your friends and family should wait for your return to tell them all about your awesome jump. You will get to meet your instructor, so they can tell you what to expect and get you prepped for your very first skydive. You will get to watch a video that explains the basics of Tandem jumping and get fitted in your gear. You can expect to be fitted with goggles, a passenger harness, main parachute, and several other pieces.
Then you’ll get to board the aircraft and attach yourself to your instructor because this is it! Securely harnessed to a fully-qualified diving instructor, you will jump from more than 10,000 feet, feeling a sensation that only birds, other skydivers, and Superman have ever experienced before! You’ll definitely want pictures of this!

Learn the ropes at our Skydiving Academy!
Skydiving Academy will teach you everything you need to know to skydive solo or even professionally. If you want to jump without an instructor harnessed to your body or get certified to train other skydivers, Skydiving Academy is here to make your dreams come true! Our instructors are FAA-certified skydivers, which means training with our team makes you eligible to receive certification from the FAA as well. While you will have a lot to learn at our Skydiving Academy, you will never have a class that is more fun or exciting than this one!
We offer both AFF and Static Line Progression instruction
AFF, or Accelerated Free Fall, is the fast-tracked training program to help students get certified as quickly as possible.
First free fall in AFF
Your first free fall takes place at 10,000-12,000 feet Above Ground Level (AGL), accompanied by two AFF instructors jumping alongside you to keep you safe during your 50 second free fall.
United States Parachute Association AFF instruction requirements include:
The assistance of two certified instructors to jump alongside you while teaching you about altitude awareness, body position, stability, pull sequence, chute deployment, etc.
Once you’ve learned these things you get to free fall on your own! Next you’re required to receive instruction for ‘in-air skills’, turns, forward movement, docking onto others, and performing ‘Superman’ exits from the aircraft.
Integrated Student Program
Next, you’ll enter the Integrated Student Program (ISP) where you’ll continue to practice for the 25 jumps required to receive your A license, allowing you to jump anywhere, as long as it meets basic safety requirements.
Static Line Progression
The second form of instruction is Static Line Progression, done at 3,000 feet AGL. You execute a suspended exit from the plane while attached by a “static line.” This style of instruction gives you a two to three minute fall.

Capture your skydiving experience up close and personal!
Every skydiving experience is a remarkable one, but nothing will ever match the exhilaration you feel when you take your first jump. Because of this we offer two imagery packages designed to help capture your moment on video, so you can share your experience.
We have a videography service available where a camera flyer jumps with you to film your experience from beginning to end. We also have a GoPro/Handycam service, where your instructor is given the equipment to record your jump from an (almost) first-person view. If this is a special jump celebrating a big moment in your life, or simply your first time skydiving, you want to make sure you have it recorded!
While having another jumper film your experience is slightly more expensive than our GoPro option, it does provide a very different view of your jump. With this option, not only will they record your thoughts and experiences as you board the aircraft and get ready for your jump, but they will jump before you so they can get an epic shot of your leap into the air. Your videographer will also be landing before you, so he or she can film the moment your feet come back in contact with the earth below you.
Camera flyers help add excitement to a jump
Camera flyers are the professional videographers who jump with you to record your skydiving experience. Photographers and videographers who’ve been bitten by the skydiving bug are able to combine their two loves into one thrilling career! Recording the most important moments in someone’s life is already a wonderful experience, but adding the thrill of the jump to your career can catapult your work from great to awesome! Camera flyers allow us to offer you a video recording of your jump, making it possible for you to relive the magic of skydiving over and over again. You can also share your jump with everyone on social media. These amazing videographers provide an awesome service that really adds a “wow” factor to your already incredible skydiving experience.
Camera flyers can do much more than record your personal skydiving experience; there are a number of career paths available for camera flyers. Often, military skydiving maneuvers are recorded, not to mention movies such as Point Break and Last Holiday need camera flyers to shoot their skydiving scenes, making camera flyers necessary in a number of industries. When it comes to bravery, talent, and a sense of adventure, camera flyers have it all! If you decide to sign up for our Skydiving Academy, be sure to let us know if you want to pursue a career as a camera flyer so we can help set you up for success!
