Shreveport Is An Ideal Skydiving Venue
Looking down onto the Shreveport waterfront from 10,000 feet is something you’ll never forget for the rest of your life. Not only that, but getting a bird’s-eye view of the Walter B Jacobs Memorial Nature Park or the Red River National Wildlife Refuge will be memorable for years to come. It’s not just about what you’ll see, you will be in absolute Free Fall at near terminal velocity, so you better hope you can take it all in amidst the adrenaline-pumping intensity.
Parachuting.com Shreveport has more choices than anyone else in the business, so rest assured that you’re getting the complete skydiving experience. The climate surrounding northern Louisiana is conducive to a very long jumping season. You’ll have a long list of dates that will be perfect for your skydiving adventure.
Get Your Free Fall Started With Tandem Jumps
Have you always wanted to skydive but haven’t taken the step to actually get things moving? There’s no better time than now to book a Tandem skydive with one of our amazing and highly trained instructors at Parachuting.com Shreveport and get yourself into the sky.
A lot takes place during our Tandem skydives, and it all starts when you meet your instructor at the drop zone. They’ll go over some of the basics that you’ll need to know for the jump and from there you will outfitted with gear. Then it’s time to get on the plane.
If you want to save the memories of this event, we have different videography packages to suit any budget so you can show all of your friends what an incredible time you had. Now, back to the jump. You will board the plane and it will take you to about 10,000 feet, at which point it’s time to attach to the instructor and jump out of the plane!
A normal jump from this altitude will consist of approximately 26-30 seconds of Free Fall before parachute deployment at around 5,500 feet.
The standard equipment that you’ll be using for the Tandem jump will be a pair of goggles and a passenger harness. There are four separate parts of the harness that connect you to your instructor. Along with this, you’ll have a special supplementary parachute that’s used for Tandem jumps called a drogue chute. This will ensure that you and your instructor slow to the proper speed before landing.
Why are our drop zones the best?
Typical drop zones are in the middle of nowhere without a single amenity. Our drop zones are different from anyone else’s: we have comfortable areas for your friends or family to wait while you’re jumping.
Usually, our drop zones will have indoor and outdoor seating areas as well as drinks and food that you can purchase. You can also bring your own food and drinks depending on the location; call Parachuting.com Shreveport for details. Having some comfort while waiting out at a drop zone will be sure to keep everyone’s mood as elevated as yours will be when you land from your epic jump.
More options for everyone
Along with a great drop zone experience, you should make sure your guests bring their cameras to capture everything they can about your jump. Obviously, they won’t be able to take a record of the entire thing, but whenever there is something lacking, our videography services will pick up the slack. There are different options and packages for everyone depending on what you’re looking for. The jumps are great and if you have an amazing time, you can always give a gift certificate to a friend so that they can have the same incredible experience as you.

Obtain Your Full Certification With Our Skydiving Academy
Once you’ve decided that the skydiving life is for you and you want to take things one step further, it’s time to enroll in our Skydiving Academy and make your dreams come true. All of our instructors are Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified, and the training takes place within mandated FAA-timeframes.
Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) Program
The fastest way to complete your certification is to enroll in the AFF program with Parachuting.com Shreveport. There are seven progressive steps that you have to go through before you are allowed to jump completely solo. This program has the least amount of ground instruction between jumps and will still allow for comprehensive understanding of the process.
Your First AFF Jump
The first time you jump in our AFF program, you will exit the plane at about 10,000 feet Above Ground Level. There is a technique used for this type of jump known as Harness Hold Training during which the instructors maintain physical contact with you throughout the jump.
During the end of the jump, the instructors will signal to the student to deploy the parachute, at which point the student will do so. If the student doesn’t respond to the prompt, the instructors will deploy the parachute for the student and the student will fail that level. It’s not uncommon for these jumps to have 50 seconds or more of Free Fall.
Static Line Progression (S/L)
The second and less accelerated method for procuring your skydiving license is through Static Line progression. During this training, you will have more extensive ground training in between jumps and will also have three or more static line jumps before any Free Fall takes place. During the beginning jumps, the static line pulls the ripcord, so there is no chance of a failure to deploy.

Give the Gift Certificate They’ll Never Forget
This may sound like a biased view but there isn’t a better gift around than the gift of someone’s first skydiving experience. Not only that, if you know someone who has been skydiving before and wants to be certified, there is sometimes a hesitation that slows them from jumping into the game. This is where the gift certificate comes in, because you can be the one who guides that person toward their dreams.
Parachuting.com Shreveport’s gift certificates have a two-year validity so there isn’t some sort of crazy rush to get things going, even though we don’t wait longer than an extra second if there’s an opportunity to jump. But hey, that’s us. Along with the long validity period, the location and names are also transferrable ; there isn’t an issue if someone moves or decides it’s better for their friend. It’s a pretty impressive gift to give to someone if it allows them to jump out of a plane.
Gift certificates are available for our Tandem jump package as well as for the Skydiving Academy, so you can get exactly what you need. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call one of our friendly representatives for more information seven days a week!

Capture Every Moment With An Imagery Package
You won’t want to forget any small detail of your experience with Parachuting.com Shreveport. We have taken countless eager jumpers skydiving for their first time, and can definitely say that you’ll want to record all of it. We have a couple of different imagery packages depending on your budget and what you’re looking for out of the videography.
With your personal videographer, the recording will start on the ground before you jump, as you gear up, and record what you’re thinking and expecting before you enter the plane. From there you’ll board the plane where you will have your final thoughts taken before the jump. The videographer will jump out of the plane before you and they will capture the amazing sight of you exiting the plane with your instructor. They will get every moment of the jump and ride down until the landing zone arrival.
Our second option is for your instructor to wear a GoPro camera and record a first person account of the entire descent. Afterwards, with both packages, you will receive a CD with the edited video and some still images that you can use for anything you want. You won’t want this experience to pass you by without immortalizing it in digital form.
The Incredible Person Behind The Lens
It’s not often that people give much thought to the person who is actually capturing all of the memories and filming while skydiving. Just give a moment to think about how insane it is to jump out of a plane, and then think about doing it while distracted with another job. That’s exactly what aerial camerawork is all about. Getting that perfect shot all while being in absolute Free Fall.
The men and women who do this possess a very rare skill that not many other professions can match. To even be considered for a position like camera flyer, you have to be a very experienced jumper in the first place. Imagine filming an unpredictable action sequence, and then imagine doing it falling from 14,000 feet in the sky. This is not a job for the faint of heart. You have to be a hardcore individual to even consider attempting this type of job, and there are numerous memories and moments that have been captured because these people decided to do it!
