Tandem Skydives: The Way to Go for Beginners


If you are just starting out skydiving or if this is your very first dive, then the Tandem jump would be your best option. Have the excitement and exhilaration that soaring through the sky can give you, but leave the responsibilities and logistics to a Federal Aviation Administration certified instructor.

Tandem Skydive Basics

There are a few basics in a Tandem jump. First, you need to do a bit of preparation. You have to arrive at the drop zone before the time of your scheduled jump to familiarize yourself with where you will be landing. You will meet your skydive instructor who will give you some information on what to expect and how to position your body.

After you watch a video about Tandem jumping and put on your gear, you will board the plane with your instructor. You will feel the anticipation build as you get to the proper elevation to jump. You will be attached to your instructor with a harness. Then, together, you will head towards the doorway of the aircraft.

Once you make the jump, you will experience a 26 to 30 second free fall. Get ready for a rush because you can reach a speed of up to 120 mph. As your parachute is deployed, it will slow down your momentum, and you will calmly descend into the drop zone. This will appear slow compared to what you just experienced, but it will take about six minutes. After you make your perfect landing, get ready to celebrate!

Equipment:
You will need a pair of goggles. You will have a passenger harness and a container. The container is comprised of the main parachute, the drogue chute, reserve chute and the Automatic Activation Device. (AAD).

Celebrate Your Accomplishment in Our Drop Zone

Even before you jump, you visit the drop zone. It is where you touch down after you skydive and meet your friends and family after your jump. They will have comfortable seating whether inside the drop zone or outside of it. They will have a great view of your sail through the clouds and watch your smooth landing back to earth. Once you land, enjoy your post-jump celebration in our drop zone. You can have a luncheon or other post-jump event of your design. We have picnic tables and drinks for purchase. Call us to see what amenities we offer.

Make the Memories Last!

Of course, you will want to remember this epic jaunt of a lifetime. Make sure your guests have cameras to get perfect pictures of you jumping out the plane, your parachute opening, and your peaceful descent to a perfect a landing. We also have videography packages that can capture every moment from arrival to landing. Capture it all and relive the memory as many times as you like! Share it on social media! Share the fantastic adventure and get a Tandem skydive gift certificate for someone special in your life. Give someone else a memory that will last a lifetime.

For Those Who Feel the Need for Speed

As if terminal velocity speed of 120 mph. was not fast enough, particularly creative skydivers developed speed skydiving. In speed skydiving, terminal velocity can reach 150-180 mph. Started in the early 2000s, it has become a competitive sport for skydivers. It has grown in popularity so much that is sanctioned by a governing body known as the International Speed Skydiving Association (ISSA).

In regular skydiving, a diver is usually in a belly-to-earth position. In speed skydiving, the diver will be in a head down position to accelerate terminal velocity. This position must also be as streamlined as possible to ensure smooth sailing. The skydiver must wear a special suit and helmet to avoid skin friction, so the body can flow fluidly in the air. To avoid dense air, the diver has to reach their maximum speed at the highest altitude possible. Speed skydiving is the fastest non-motorized sport on earth. Imagine the adrenaline rush going head down at 150 mph!

The current Guinness World record holder for speed skydiving is Henrik Raimer of Sweden. In September of 2016, he reached a speed of 601.26 km/h (373.6 mph). Talk about a need for speed!

Solo Parachuting Academy in Louisville, KY

Let Us Help you Make a Solo Skydive!


Our Training is Thorough:

We offer comprehensive instruction with FAA certified skydivers that allows you to become certified. With certification, you can skydive solo, train others, or skydive professionally.

We offer two methods of training: Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) and Static Line Progression (S/L). AFF is more accelerated in comparison to the more traditional S/L method because the student performs a solo free fall quicker.

Your First Solo Free Fall in AFF:

Two instructors jump with you. Your instructors attach themselves to you with a harness. You will remain attached until you deploy your chute. The instructors will prompt the student to deploy. An instructor will assist if necessary.

Seven Steps in AFF:

In Levels 1-3, the student will learn the basics of position and effective chute deployment. In Level 3, the student will begin to free fall on their own.

In Levels 4-7, students will be taught more maneuvers. Some of these skills include turns, forward movement, and docking onto others.

Integrated Student Program (ISP) – Moving Towards Certification:
In the Integrated Student Program (ISP), students continue their skills, either on their own or with an instructor. Each of these jumps is included to achieve the requisite number of 25 to apply for an A license.
Static Line Progression (S/L) Training:
A student jumps tied to the aircraft by a “Static Line.” This “Static Line” will deploy the main canopy. After two S/L jumps, the student will learn how to deploy their own chute. These jumps will be followed by three more in which the student will demonstrate their ability to deploy their own chute. Once the student demonstrates successful deployment of their own chute, they will be able to perform free fall and work towards the 25 jumps required to apply for their A license.

Firefighting in the Sky!

Once you become a certified skydiver, you have some unique options. One of the most death defying is smokejumping. A smokejumper will be parachuted into a remote woodland area to combat wildfires. Smokejumping started in the 1930s with crews mainly in the United States and the former Soviet Union. There are nine smokejumping crews in the U.S.

A primary duty of a smokejumper is to protect forests. They are parachuted in and then have to wait for supplies, food, and water to be parachuted in. Once they gather everything they need, they fight rough physical conditions and terrain to get the job done.

New and experienced smokejumpers practice skydiving techniques such as: aircraft exiting, parachute maneuvering, and parachute land rolls. In addition to skydiving training, you must have experience in wildland fighting. You also receive training in tree-climbing and timber let-down procedures. Some sites have on-ground practice in the form of parachute jump simulators. Training is ongoing and extensive to keep smokejumpers alert and sharp.

Parachuting.com Louisville Videos and Imagery

Save the Memories With Your Own Imagery Package!


Our Video Packages:
Along with our skydive services, you have the option of purchasing two imagery packages: videography and GoPro/Handycam. The difference in these two options is that with our videography package, a camera flyer will jump out of the plane with you to film your jump. With the GoPro/Handycam option, the skydiving instructor who will accompany you on your flight will have the GoPro camera.

Have a visual record of your jump and get every nuance before your jump and after your exhilarating thrill ride. In your videography package, the camera flyer will record your thoughts before boarding and on the plane. The camera flyer will leave the aircraft just to get the right angle and perspective for your epic descent into the sky. The camera flyer will land slightly before you just to get the moment you land into the drop zone with precision. Once you have landed, your final thoughts will be recorded, and you can reflect immediately on the magnitude of your skydiving adventure. Your video will be edited and set to music right away and your final CD copy is ready in an hour. Relive the amazing trip over and over again!

Dynamics of Being a Camera Flyer


Imagine being able to film while jumping out of a plane. Get shots you would never be able to get anywhere else. Being a camera flyer allows you the exhilaration and the ability to hold on to your in-flight memories. You can film for tandem and AFF jumps. You could also film for a four-way team and freeflying.

Before you even gear up, you have to pay attention to your physical conditioning. A helmet that weighs five pounds on the ground can way up to 30 pounds in the air with the impact of force. To prepare, you can gradually add weight to your helmet over time, or do neck exercises.

The first step in becoming a camera flyer is to become certified in skydiving. Make sure you have all aspects of jumping down, from gearing up to landing. From there, you have to purchase the proper equipment. Mainly, you have to obtain a helmet that allows for a camera mount and quick-release fitting. To get the best shots and for safety, always be aware of your location. If you lose track, you have the potential for collisions or just getting shots you can’t use.
