Norfolk, Virginia Tandem Parachuting

Soar Like an Eagle, Fly with An Expert!


Tandem jumps are the best way to dip your toes into skydiving. Why? You get the complete adrenaline rush and amazing views from 14,000 feet up while someone else takes care of the logistics. Who is that someone else? A USPA certified instructor. That’s right, you’ll be in the hands of a trained professional, so all you have to worry about is having the time of your life.

Parachuting.com Norfolk works with a team of experts to support you during your first (or 100th) jump.

10 Steps of a Tandem Jump

  1. Get to your drop zone before your scheduled jump.
  2. Meet your certified instructor/ jumping partner,
  3. Get a briefing on what to expect and watch a video on tandem jumps.
  4. Gear up!
  5. Hop onboard!
  6. Reach appropriate jumping elevation (10,000 feet plus!)
  7. Get strapped to your instructor.
  8. Move toward the doorway and get ready.
  9. JUMP!
    • Approximately 30 seconds of freefall at roughly 120 MPH.
    • Parachute deploys at 5.500-6,000 feet.
    • Soar majestically for about 6 minutes. Take in the views. Appreciate nature.
  10. Land in your drop zone and celebrate your bravery.

What Kind of Gear will I Wear?

On top of your own comfortable clothing and sneakers, you’ll wear our skydiving gear to keep you safe during your jump. We have everything you need. You’ll wear:

  • Goggles
  • A passenger harness
  • Four (4) points at which you attach to the instructor (2 on the shoulders and 2 on the hips)
  • A container
    • Main parachute
    • Drogue Chute
    • Reserve Chute
    • Automatic Activation Device (ADD)

Party in the Drop Zone!

The drop zone is not only where you will land after your skydive, but it is where you will celebrate your achievement! This is also the place where your friends and family will be waiting for you during your jump. They might be a bit nervous for you too, but the drop zone is a comfortable place with seating inside and out. Some locations may even have food and drinks for purchase or picnic tables for you to bring your own. When you book your skydive, ask about the specific amenities at the drop zone so you and your loved ones can party hard when you get back on the ground.

Remember this Moment Forever!

Your guests can certainly take pictures of your triumphant landing from the drop zone, so make sure they bring their cameras. But, if you want photos or film of you soaring through the sky, ask about our photography and videography packages.

Tandem jumpers are not allowed to bring their own cameras for safety reasons, but that’s no reason to miss out on some amazing shots. We have professional photographers and Go-Pro cameras that can capture your bravery. And, remember, we also offer gift certificates for tandem jumps and our videography and photography services. Don’t miss out on any of these amazing options!

Don’t hesitate! Book your tandem jump by calling 757-517-9772 today!


Solo Parachuting Academy in Norfolk, Virginia

The Least Boring School Around!


Ok, so you’ve tried tandem jumps a few times and you’re ready for the next step. For anyone who wants to fly solo or become a certified, professional skydiver, Skydiving Academy is for you. The certified skydiving instructors facilitate these comprehensive classes to prepare skydivers for certification. We teach two main styles: Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) and Static Line Progression (S/L).

What’s AFF?

In this class, students are accompanied in solo dives by two instructors. They will maintain physical contact with the student, walking him or her through each step of the jump, including chute deployment. At that point they will release the student for 50 or more seconds of freefalling bliss. There are 7 levels, each increasing the student’s skill levels and comfort in the air. To complete a level, students will be required to successfully demonstrate the necessary skills, which include: body position, stability, effective chute deployment, forward movement, and many others.

Integrated Student Program (ISP)
This comes after level 7. During this period, student continue to jump with or without an instructor and practice the skills they learned. After 25 jumps, a student can apply for a license. Once they have that, they can dive whenever and wherever (within reason and while maintaining basic safety requirements).

Ok, what about S/L?

This method of learning allows the students to jump on their own from the very beginning. They will receive 4-5 hours of ground instruction before the first jump. Then, the actual jump begins. Since there are no other divers with you, a ‘static line’ is attached to the aircraft and will deploy the chute at the correct altitude. After doing this successfully twice, the student will move onto learning to deploy his or her own chute. After 25 jumps, a student can apply for a license.

Make Memories that Last a Lifetime!


Capture your exhilaration on camera with one of two videography packages. Either have a camera person jump with you to get a third person perspective, or a Gopro attached to your instructor for a more up-close-and-personal angle. Both options will allow you to record thoughts before and after your jump, capture your every scream, breath, and “hell yeah,” and the ability to relive your jump over and over. If this is an option you want, and trust us you will, let us know ahead of time so we have all of the personnel and equipment ready on the day of your jump.

You will be given a final edited CD version of your jump so that you can share and rewatch your experience with all of your friends and even upload it on social media. Skydiving is no everyday occurrence (for most of us). Make sure your bravery is well documented.

Be Aware of the Sun!


That’s an important tip for those who are filming a skydive. Our videographers are not your average, run-of-the-mill camera people. They not only have to have all the training of professional skydivers and know how to work fancy camera equipment, but they have to be able to get amazing shots of their subjects while plummeting toward the ground themselves. How do they do it? First of all, it takes a lot of practice. Depending on where they get certified, they may need to do at least 200 jumps themselves.

The biggest tip? Always know where the sun is, and don’t point the camera directly at it. You won’t see anything! All photographers and videographers do, but our flying camera people have to get it right the first time and within a few seconds. Getting a shot of a skydiver from below may seem like a good idea in theory, but not if the sun is behind them.

Catch every moment on film! Call today at 757-517-9772.
