Tandem Parachuting in Oakland, CA


Tandem jumps are the most recommended jump for first time divers. Experience the exhilaration of flying through the air 14,000 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) without the worry of maintaining a parachute. Instead, feel the rush and enjoy the breathtaking views.

Feel free to gaze around the beautiful landscape and enjoy the peaceful descent without having to monitor your jump. Take the stress out of the dive by knowing that every tandem jumper is harnessed to a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified instructor, who has gone through extensive training to become certified.

Take The Plunge

To conduct a tandem jump, it is recommended that you arrive at the facility earlier than your scheduled jump in order to familiarize yourself with your instructor and the facility. Prior to jumping, your instructor will brief you on what to expect on your jump. You will learn proper technique and body position for the dive.

To ensure you feel confident of what is expected, you will watch an informative video on what to expect when conducting a tandem jump, including proper technique and safety precautions. Following these instructions, you will be outfitted with the appropriate jumping gear, and then board the aircraft with your instructor. After reaching the designated jump elevation, your instructor will attach him/herself to you and you will proceed to the jump doorway.

After the initial free fall, the instructor will pull the parachute cord, and you will begin your peaceful and scenic descent back to earth. Once you land, you will be rejoined with your family and friends. They will certainly be excited and eager to celebrate your successful jump!

Tandem Jump Gear

When conducting a tandem jump, it is important to always follow protocol. To ensure safety, Tandem jumps require specific gear be worn. During your tandem jump, you will be wearing goggles, a passenger harness, the main parachute, the drogue chute, the reserve chute, and the automatic activation device.

Friend and Family in the Drop Zone

At Parachuting.com Oakland, we offer a comfortable waiting area called the drop zone, for you to rest and wait for your friends or family members to land safely. The drop zone is the perfect place to wait patiently for the return of your loved one.

In the drop zone, rest easy, and enjoy a picnic lunch as you watch your friends to descend from the sky into our safely marked landing area. It’s a great place to take pictures and discover more information about skydiving. Our drop zone offers great amenities that make waiting comfortable and relaxing.

Our location is situated with picnic tables, occasional food stands, and comfortable indoor and outdoor seating. The drop zone offers every luxury as you wait with anticipation to see the end of the jump. Call us at 510-646-1770 to reserve tables and inquire about the type of food that may be offered.

Digital Memories: Be Sure to Bring the Camera!

From the drop zone, friends and family members can take pictures as you return to the ground with a professional, gentle landing. In addition to pictures taken by friends and family of the descent, we offer videography specials that capture your special moment from beginning to end.

Most people choose to purchase a videography package to help remember the special and memorable experience. Imagine how stunning it would be to have pictures of you from 14,000 feet in the air! These once in a lifetime pictures are exciting to have for you to share your bravest moment.

Solo Parachuting Academy in Oakland, CA

Learn to Skydive Solo or Professionally


Take your skydiving experience to the next level; train to jump solo or become a certified instructor.

Parachuting.com Oakland offers two ways to become a certified instructor. The two main styles of training are AFF (Accelerated Free Fall) and Static Line Progression (S/L). In comparison, AFF is a more accelerated version of training. AFF training consists of 7 steps, where students will be instructed and trained in varying degrees of solo jumping.

Initially, students will engage in levels 1-3, which includes a jump facilitated by two AFF instructors jumping alongside the trainee as a safety precaution. Students will learn specific jump protocol and will become experts on the skydiving process. Then, students will be released to free fall entirely on their own for the first time. After this, students will enter levels 4-7, where they will hone their “in air skills.”

The successful completion of this course requires a successful jump that demonstrates the student’s understanding of the principles of skydiving. Once they are able to prove they can complete a successful jump they will earn a certificate.

Integrated Student Program:

Following the initial jump, you have the option to enter the Integrated Student Program (ISP). This program allows you to take steps towards attaining your A license. In the ISP, you practice various skydiving maneuvers and work towards reaching 25 jumps. All of these jumps will go towards your A license.

Static Line Progression

Another option in skydiving training that Parachuting.com Oakland has to offer is Static Line Progression (S/L) training. This is where you essentially “fall away” from the airplane and remain suspended by a “static line” that is affixed to the plane. During this type of jump, you freefall at 3,000 feet for about 2 or 3 minutes before your parachute is released by the line. You will then float, aided by radio instructions given by your trainer, gracefully back to the dropzone.

Before jumping, you will have 4 to 5 hours of ground training first. Following the initial jump, each subsequent jump requires 15 minutes of additional ground instruction. After two jumps, you will learn how to pull your own ripcord. After 25 jumps, you can apply for your A license and be cleared of student status.

Perks of having a Skydiving License:

The awesome thing about skydiving is that there are no stereotypes about the sport, other than adrenaline junky; anyone can be into skydiving!

We have seen people from all walks of life enjoy skydiving here in Oakland. We think it’s great that anyone can learn how to dive, and anyone can become certified. It’s such a personal activity, and anyone over the age of 18 can do it. It’s a very rewarding experience because you meet such a rich variety of people skydiving in Oakland.

Not only is skydiving really fun, it’s also something you can become an expert in. There are a ton of perks to having your skydiving certification. It’s interesting that once you become certified, there are a ton of ways to put your certificate to good use. Besides skydiving simply for fun, which certified jumpers do all the time, some of the other ways that people have used their skydiving certificate are:

  • To work as a military paratrooper
  • Become a smokejumper (which are wildland firefighters who jump into remote areas to combat wildfires)
  • Work as a skydiving instructor
  • Compete in professional skydiving competitions
  • Become a professional packer/rigger who is someone who is licensed to pack, maintain, and repair parachutes.

There are endless ways your certification can be used!

Parachuting.com Oakland Videos and Imagery

Imagery Packages: Always Remember your Jump!


There are two imagery package options available to help you always remember your jump.

Our first videography package includes a camera flyer who will jump with you and capture every moment of your jump. The second option is our GoPro Handycam, that offers a more up close and personal documentation of your jump. Both options are competitively priced, with the camera flyer being a slightly more expensive option. However, your camera flyer will document your jump from beginning to end, even recording your thoughts and feelings moments up to the epic jump. The camera flyer will exit the plan slightly before you to help capture the thrilling moment you exit the plane, and they will land before you to capture the exact moment your feet touch the ground.

The video, which you will take home that day in the form of a DVD, will then be edited to include commentary and music for you to share with friends and family. The disc will contain a video, as well as pictures, that you can upload to social media and share with the world. Skydiving is an experience you will always want to remember, and the best way to recall your jump is through the pictures of your experience.

The Excitement of being a Camera Flyer:


One unique way to get involved with skydiving at an expert level is to become a camera flyer.

Camera flyers play a unique and vital role in the skydiving experience. They are expertly trained, and have the challenging job of conducting a standard skydiving jump while simultaneously capturing your most exhilarating moment on film.

As they fall rapidly through the air, they are also zoomed in on your screaming, happy face. It is incredibly difficult to be a camera flyer, but the job is very rewarding. Imagine climbing into the plane and smiling back at your family and friends, sitting anxiously on the plane as it reaches altitude, then leaping from the plane and falling back to earth all while smiling at a camera. Your most epic adventure is being captured, second by second, by a highly skilled camera flyer.

It’s nothing short of amazing to capture the energy and excitement of a skydiver, while also performing a jump at the same time. It takes an incredible amount of skills to become a camera flyer. To become a camera flyer, you would need to possess two skill sets. First, you must be a certified skydiver and be able to perform jumps on your own. Second, you need to possess digital photography skills to know how to skillfully capture such an electrifying moment.
