Do You Want to dare and skydive?
Skydiving makes you feel really high and we are not just talking in the literal sense! At some point in our childhood, we have all dreamt of making a cool and fancy formation in the sky with other skydivers. Admit it that you have too! Well, if what stops you is the feeling that you might just have a heart attack jumping from a plane thousands of feet up, don’t worry. It doesn’t feel like that. In fact, you can actually think of it as similar to floating. Plus, you have support from air resistance, so this experience will just feel like you are taking a flight. Oh, and remember that saying “What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger!”? In this case, change it to cooler! Whether you want to Jump for Fun, experience our Tandem skydiving, or wish to get a gift certificate for your loved one, you will get everything here – yes, under one parachute.
We Have All the Parachuting Options You Need!
To nail it the first time, Tandem jumping is the way to go. Can you imagine yourself 14,000 feet above the ground with a certified instructor attached to you? There’s no reason to say ‘No!’ Your instructor looks after everything; you’re along to enjoy the ride of your first skydiving experience. Free Falling is fun.
Our Federal Aviation Administration certified skydivers train you so that you too become a master of skydiving. With two instructors facilitating, you will be given all the knowledge to enable you to skydive solo at your place of choice. Get ready to receive all the attention in your social circle after being called a certified skydiver!
No, it’s not food! It’s our skydiving gift certificate! Well, of course, you can throw in some food too – along with the skydiving gift certificate, because this one right here sets the bar totally high! To celebrate any birthday, anniversary or really just anything at all, what better way to rejoice than making a jump right from clouds!
Jump for Fun!
A certified solo skydiver? Then Jumping for Fun would be something that is made ‘solely’ for you! If you are a certified skydiver, having completed advanced training, you can jump solo and you can skydive from any of our multiple drop zones. Ride in our planes to Tandem jump height as many times as you want.

Skydiving Training – Learn from the pros
Skydiving is fun but even more adventurous is learning how to skydive and do it anytime!
After certification, you can skydive solo, train others, or skydive professionally. The Skydiving Academy at Parachuting.com Philadelphia has all the training you need to accomplish all of this.
After this training, you receive certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The detailed and comprehensive training will go at a pace suited to you (within the FAA-mandated timeframes).
The two main training programs are Accelerated Free Fall and Static Line Progression.
Accelerated Free Fall (AFF)
As compared to Static Line Progression (S/L) training, Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) is more fast-track in terms of earning the skydiving certification. Going through seven progressive steps, student skydivers are assisted by a certified skydiving instructor jumping with them.
AFF students make Free Fall jumps much sooner compared to S/L training; namely, just seven hours into the training while S/L training requires you to perform three or more other jumps before Free Falling.
Your first free fall in AFF
- Be at 10,000-12,000 feet above the ground with two AFF instructors
- Have the instructor’s guidance in case you can’t deploy your own chute
The seven levels (as outlined by the United States Parachute Association):
You will receive assistance from two certified Instructors related to your body position, stability, and will Free Fall to fall entirely on your own in Level 3.
You will learn various skydiving skills related to trying forward movement, turns, and advanced exists from the aircraft.
Integrated Student Program (ISP):
After level 7, you will continue on your own or with your instructors until you have achieved the qualifying number of jumps (25) to apply for your A license to solo skydive.
Static Line Progression (S/L):
The first few jumps are from 3,000 feet Above Ground Level after extensive ground instruction. Your parachute is pulled for you by the static line you’re attached to. After a few static line jumps, you move to Free fall jumps, each from progressively higher altitudes. After 25 jumps, you may apply for your A license to solo skydive.

Because it’s time to record your breathtaking experience!
Give some thought to the idea that a video package enhances the overall experience of your skydiving, especially if it is your first time jumping. You will have the chance to relive your incredible experience over again (and again), as well as demonstrate to loved ones just how brave and daring you are.
Besides making the most of skydiving services offered by Parachuting.com Philadelphia, you can purchase one of our two imagery packages: The first one is a videography service in which our camera flyer will jump with you to record your skydiving experience from the beginning until the end. This will be an interesting video in which the camera flyer will also record your thoughts before you step into the plane! Not only this, as you start off the jump, your yells, screams, and even facial expressions will be preserved by our imagery package so you can show this epic video to your friends and family and prove how courageous you have always been!
The second one is the GoPro/HandyCam option. Your skydiving instructor wears the GoPro camera to record your daring experiences and actions from a first-person viewpoint while you enjoy the thrill in the air!
At the end of your skydiving experience, we will provide you the CD containing your edited video, sometimes along with still images of your overall skydiving experience. As you go home, you will be able to upload your images to your social media on the same day.
What could be better than that! Parachuting.com Philadelphia ensures you relive your skydiving memories for a lifetime.
Go and capture the adventure of the sky
As a camera flyer, you will be flying and skydiving AND capturing the best of moments. You will be capturing all that the skydiver feels during skydiving. Are you moved by the adrenaline-rushing trip of skydiving? Does the mere thought of jumping from the aircraft and soaring through the wind make you jump up and down with excitement?
From capturing the scenic views of the sky to the bird’s-eye view of how Earth looks like from high up there, you will be capturing the real adventure on the reel.
As a camera flyer, you need to have a C-license and 200 jumps, according to the U.S. Parachute Association. Fifty of the jumps performed should be with the equipment that you will use with your camera. Some people are interested in capturing video and wingsuiting it. Keep in mind that both will be difficult to handle at the same time. You can train for both of them individually and then see how to go about it.
If you are jumping and want to capture just the point of view, then you can get by with a basic camcorder and an ultra-wide-angle lens. Both Sony and JVC make good models to consider.
