Why should you jump out of a plane?

The real question is: Why shouldn’t you? Look, there comes a time in everyone’s lives when they ask themselves, “What am I made of?” We all want to know how brave we are, what more life has to offer and whether or not we could succeed under pressure. Skydiving isn’t just something you do, it’s something you experience. It will teach you things about yourself you never knew. It will give you a new perspective on the world you live in by pushing you to the very edge. And, when you return safely to the ground, you’ll come back a changed person.

Why we love jumping over Lubbock


The great state of Texas is home to some of the most scenic terrain, historic buildings and diverse wildlife known to man, and Lubbock follows suit. There’s always something to see, from buildings like the Cactus Theater, to Lubbock High School (go Westerners!), the beauty of the Brazos River and the Yellow House Canyon, skydiving over this historic city in West Texas will blow you away (not literally, of course). Lubbock is known for its scorching hot summers, and jumping out of an airplane is one of the best ways to beat the heat — it’s like your own personal air conditioner! You’ll be able to see everything that makes Lubbock special from a vantage point you’ve never experienced, all while having the ride of your life. There’s no better place to experience the thrill of free fall than West Texas, so make Lubbock your next destination and get in the air!

Lubbock Texas Tandem Parachuting

What it means to jump out of a plane


Tandem jumps will allow you to experience the excitement of skydiving without having to be a professional. You will be harnessed to an expert jumper from 14,000 feet Above Ground Level (AGL), but don’t worry, all you have to do is enjoy the ride and the best view of your life! Your instructor is certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), so you’ll be in good hands!

So what happens?
Basically, you’ll meet with your group on the ground, as well as your instructor, who will tell you what to expect (be sure to arrive early so you can determine where your friends and family can watch you from). Next, you’ll watch a quick video and learn how to position your body during the jump. You’ll be decked out in the latest skydiving gear, climb aboard the plane and ascend to more than 10,000 feet!

The dive itself will last for about 6.5 to 7 minutes — this includes up to 30 seconds of free fall (during which you can reach a speed of 120 miles per hour!) and approximately six minutes of descent with your parachute deployed, giving you plenty of time to soak in the view and prepare for an epic landing!

What equipment will you use?
You’ll definitely have a pair of goggles to protect your eyes, a harness to attach you to your instructor (you will be attached at four points — two on your shoulders and two on your hips) and, of course, your parachute! Your instructor will brief you more.

Why our drop zones are the best!

Most of our drop zones (DZs) are equipped with comfortable areas for your friends and family to wait. Most include picnic tables and shaded areas that are close enough to watch you as you fall back to earth, as well as indoor seating. Some areas will have food and snacks for sale, as well as drinks, but every place is guaranteed to have a friendly, knowledgeable staff that will make everyone feel at home. Some locations are even pet friendly! Each site will offer different amenities, so it’s important to call ahead to get all the available information.

We want you to remember this forever

That’s why we encourage your friends and family to bring cameras or video recorders, so that they can document your experience from the ground. But, that’s not all! We also offer video services, so you can relive your jump again and again! We have professional camera operators who can get a third-person view or you can utilize our GoPro option and get footage from your vantage point. Why not get the loved one in your life a gift certificate so they can have the experience of a lifetime? This jump is sure to be something they’ll never forget!

Skydiving is more than you think

Some of you will be old enough to remember the cartoon, “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show,” in which a flying squirrel named Rocky and a moose named Bullwinkle went on adventures and thwarted the nefarious Boris and Natasha. Rocky was always zipping around, doing somersaults and aerobatics, while Bullwinkle was, well, he was a moose. Explaining it doesn’t do the show justice, but, trust us, it was great.

What does this have to do with skydiving? Well, some of you may know about wingsuit flying, which entails climbing into a specially designed suit (that borrows some physics from flying squirrels) and jumping off cliffs, ledges and sometimes buildings to get a quick fix of adrenaline. Though it’s not exactly the same thing as skydiving, the sport is definitely a close relative and utilizes a lot of the same aspects: precision, a firm understanding of aerodynamics and, perhaps most of all, guts.

Although the first wingsuit tested in 1912 by Franz Reichelt ended in tragedy (he jumped from the Eiffel Tower and let’s just say he got more than a headache), there has been monumental improvements in design and safety features since (for example, adding a parachute to help with a safe, controlled landing). Before you can climb into one of these awesome body suits, you need at least 200 free fall jumps under your belt. However, if you’ve always idolized Rocky and you’re looking to add a new skill to your repertoire, Parachuting.com can help get you off the ground!

Solo Parachuting Academy in Lubbock, TX

Make skydiving a career through the Skydiving Academy


We realize there are people who are looking for more than just a one-time jump. For those who are wild enough to want to jump out of a plane professionally, we recommend looking into the Skydiving Academy. With the right training, you’ll be able to not only jump solo, but also be able to instruct others in the future. There are a few different routes you can take, but we’ll go over the most relevant.

Why our instruction is beneficial:
All trainers are certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which allows you to also become certified by the same organization. FAA-certification can lead to a career and includes the most comprehensive training in the country. You’ll learn everything you need to jump professionally.

What do the different programs entail?
Accelerated Free Fall (although there are seven steps) will get you solo diving quicker compared to other programs. AFF jumps can be started after seven hours of ground training with a certified instructor while the Static Line progression (S/L) only requires three to four hours of ground training. AFF will commence at 10,000-12,000 feet AGL and will be performed with two instructors who maintain some form of contact throughout the jump. Students will experience about 50 seconds of free fall before their chutes are deployed. With S/L, your jump commences much lower (3,000 feet AGL) and you will jump out while suspended to the aircraft, giving you about a two-to-three minute fall. Each successive jump in S/L requires 15 minutes of ground training.

How do I choose a program?
Your best resource is our staff and your instructor. Instructors want you to succeed no matter what you do, and they will be available to give you more detailed information on each program and what you can expect!

Just when you thought skydiving couldn’t be cooler…

…you learn about pararescuers.

Pararescuemen (aka PJs) are a specially trained group of men and women who work for the United States Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) and the Air Combat Command (ACC). They are deployed in combat and humanitarian terrains to assist in medical treatment and recovery missions, and they are totally badass. These are people who jump out of an airplane into dangerous situations so people they’ve never met can be rescued. If that doesn’t blow your socks off, you’re probably wearing sandals (and if you’re wearing socks with your sandals, please don’t).

How do you become a PJ?
Training is intense (it’s nicknamed “Superman School”) and lasts for two years. The training includes the Pararescue Indoctrination Course followed by a slew of others like Combat Dive School, Survival (SERE) and Army Airborne. It’s brutal, draining and oftentimes horrifying training that covers everything from jumping into warzones to escaping from a submerged aircraft. PJs are ready to give their lives to save others, and this specific branch of the military has one of the highest mortality rates at a whopping 80 percent! However, PJs know what they’re signing up for, and they do so with pride.

You don’t have to be crazy, but it helps!

Parachuting.com Lubbock Videos and Imagery

Relive your experience again and again


Whether it’s your first jump or 100th, it’s nice to have the experience on film. The great thing is the variety–you may choose to have it filmed via GoPro, which will give you the firsthand viewpoint and make you feel like you’re in the middle of the action again. Or, you may opt to have one of our professional cameramen take a video of you from afar! With this option, you’ll see your face and exactly how you reacted to the most thrilling adventure of your life!

Advantages of a cameraman:
Aside from getting to see your reaction to freefalling (trust us, it’s priceless) having a cameraman also means you’ll be able to record your thoughts as you get on the plane (were you scared, excited, laughing, all three?) as well as capture your immediate thoughts when landing–and everything inbetween! (Be sure to book this option ahead of time if possible)

No matter what you choose…
Your video will be edited and set to music at the drop zone and will (usually) be ready to take home with you within an hour. The video is added to a CD so you can upload it to your favorite social media platform or put it on a mug!

How to film while falling through the air


Photographers and cinematographers don’t have an easy job. The are in a constant battle with lighting, weather and difficult subjects. It takes a keen eye and a steady hand to do what they do, and it isn’t easy to make a living from it. Now, imagine if you had to deal with all these dilemmas while simultaneously falling through the air at 14,000 feet. Sound tough? We thought so, too, which is why we’ve dedicated an entire section to the men and women who are bold enough to do it!

What does the job entail?
First, you need to be an experienced skydiver. Obviously, there are (some) dangers associated with jumping out of a plane from a few thousand feet in the air. If you’re a novice diver, it’s important to remain focused at the task at hand. Imagine trying to rub your stomach and pat your head at the same time. Now imagine you’re strapped to a parachute and free falling at 120 miles per hour, and you might have an idea of what these cameramen go through. Every shot is important to the final product and time is a factor, making this one of the more difficult careers you could pursue.
