“Skydiving is all about controlled terror. You’ll love it!”

Go Skyforce! Ride the currents of Big Sioux!

Skydive into wild west frontier of America. Experience the tribal elation of spirits tempting the skies. The thrill of cold, raging rivers. And seeing anew—like a wild goose or a skyforce gorging on the beauty of the territory for the first time. Scissoring through the animated winds criss-crossing the lusty panorama, imagining buffalo roaming across the tableau. Herds of brown bodies dotting the landscape in throngs. Until they reach the Big Sioux where they collect into a tribe of larges, mediums, and smalls grouped together by their awe of the power of the river as it storms past them to the falls, where it drops over terraces of boulders and rock on its way to eternity. And rightly so, as you surge over Big Sioux, you’ll see the falls below. A gurgling white spirit disappearing.

Skydive across the marbled greenery of Big Sioux Falls!


You’re up 14,000 feet over the grandeur of Big Sioux. It’s time to jump. Time to feel the elation of high velocity as you step out of the aircraft into the heartland of America. A patchwork of greens and browns marbled together, sliced apart by the Big Sioux River. Rows of homes in semi circles and rows of U’s cobbled together. All of Sioux Falls is there for you to marvel at, even before you’ve pulled the cord at 5,000 feet. Sioux Falls today and the west the way it once was before settlement. Your imagination runs wild as you descend through gusts of wind. Yesterday and today line up in front of you. Herds of buffalo stream across your imagination as the Big Sioux Falls chop up the river. The terrain of South Dakota seethes with the history of America. Enjoy the panorama as you continue to approach terra firma.

Hunting for Thrills? Skydiving is your Best Friend!


After Charlie took me to the Drop Zone to tandem skydive, he explained the ins and outs of diving out of an aircraft at 14,000 feet. And he mentioned the importance of safety, touching down on terra firma without a scratch. Charlie said, your only choice is to skydive with an FAA certified Tandem Master. And Charlie added, He’ll help you relax when the moment comes to jump, so you’ll enjoy the euphoria of your plummet to Earth. What was said between the lines was that a Tandem jump was the safest way for a newbie, like me, to face the fear of wind-swept empty space when staring out the open door of an aircraft. Because I was not going out alone. I would be tethered to the Tandem Master when we jumped. I would be along for the ride, so to speak.

Charlie drew a more complete picture before I boarded the aircraft. He said I would see videos how to properly position myself aboard the aircraft as well as other safety videos that explained how the Tandem Master bolted his/her flight harness to the novice, me, readying me for the jump from 14,000 feet. Charlie reiterated that I must observe these pre-jump rituals.

So, when the Tandem Master tethered himself to my harness and made sure all the bolts were tight it would not be a surprise. But a relief. My sign that I would not be alone. The adult jumping with me would guide me through my fears. Safely.

The Big Sioux Skyforce! Dive into American History!

So, I went to the Drop Zone. Big Sioux country. Met with customer service professionals who discussed the safest way to skydive. Showed me the gear. The goggles, the harnesses, and the different parachutes used for different jumps—all of them on the shelves. Their functions were outlined so I could imagine how each part fit the dive. So, when I shook hands, I felt a sense of assurance. These people knew their business. On the ground and in the air.
Outside the Drop Zone shed was a snack stand. I could use a cold drink. Is that a buffalo burger on the menu? And corn dogs? Cool. I could hang out here for a while. Everyone’s so friendly. If only I was ready to go up into the air. At least they answered all my questions and I saw how well they treated their customers. How much they cared.

Skydive Big Sioux Falls! Imagine Your Soaring Future!

I can’t wait to say I’m an experienced skydiver holding a USPA certification. Then I’ll be able to strap a GoPro videocam on my wrist. Or carry a digital camera so I can shoot my own photographs. I’d like to record my own dives from my own perspective. Create my own memories to enjoy at home before posting them on my social media sites. Then I can consider whether I want to become a skydiving professional. An exciting thought. The next time I come to the Drop Zone I want to bring all my skydiving dreams and aspirations along with me.

Thrill to Acrobatic Freedom of Skydiving then Plunge!

I can’t even imagine how much freedom I’ll enjoy once I am USPA certified. Charlie says he wears wingsuits now. Wingsuits allow him to control the way he flies through the windswept air. He can slow up. Swoop. Accelerate. And somersault. Plus, because he enjoys expressing himself, Charlie can choose different colors and shapes to personalize his look as he slices across the windy terrain. How does Charlie say it, I love to zip around in jet-like dives, abruptly slow, and then twirl into an upside-down spin. Create my own personal ballet. I heard him say this and thought how cool. Now I must master my body movements. AFF training, Charlie said. Enroll in AFF and they’ll teach you the right way to fly.

Do this in the future. Become an acrobat in the air. That’s what Charlie whispered in my ear. Do it here. The right way. Then I read about Hollywood professional stunt performers. And Skysurfing. Flying through the air attached to a snowboard. Performing one acrobatic move after another. Just thinking about it excited me. The idea of a series of somersaulting loops, just crazy wild.

It’s like strutting on an endless stage you can’t fall off, Charlie said. I heard a whirling dervish of a skydiver. With portable skills. Plunge into Big Sioux country. Or anywhere. Rely on AFF training. USPA certification. Think, you’re too talented to merely fall out of an aircraft? You can strut. Dance. Be as free as a bird.

Chuckle as YOU Sizzle across the Sky!


Of course I wanted to learn to skydive safely. Of course I wanted to be confident every time I faced a vista of 14,000 feet. No matter where I was. I loved the idea of finding my ultimate freedom in the sky. But I also wanted to feel as free as I could, and that meant understanding the risks. Safety means appreciating the risky side of jumping and what can go wrong.

Have you ever heard of Murphy’s Law?

It basically says what can go wrong will go wrong, unless you take steps to mitigate against random chance. Well, I know a lot can go wrong in any endeavor if I’m careless. As far as skydiving is concerned, I’ll never be careless.

Now I know that every time I go up I’m in complete control of my emotions. My body. And I think safety. What’s absolutely necessary to be in control. How to move my body. How to use wind gusts to my advantage. Knowing this is particularly important when I skysurf or freefly.

And that’s why I trained with USPA certified flight instructors so there would be no measures left to chance. I wanted a thorough accelerated AFF training regimen that led to a skydiving certification. And I found it amongst these USPA flight trained instructors.

So, now when I go into the air, I’m confident.

In control. Able to move freely. And safely. Those seven levels of achievement—weeks of learning and repetition—paid off. Now I can pursue a professional career as a stunt diver, photographer, or even a career in the military. Whatever I desire. Imagine, being one of the best skydivers in the world.

That’s why I’m so glad I didn’t choose Static Line Progression (S/L), because I wouldn’t have learned to skydive as quickly. I would have always been dependent on jumps that required a fixed cord attached to my parachute and the other end to the aircraft so that when I reached 5,000 the chute would deploy automatically. I would never have become an accomplished skydiver so fast. Which is what I wanted, more than anything.

Spiral into the coil of an Unforgotten Skydive!


It’s time to jump. The green light comes on and you take one step into infinity and immediately travel at light speed. It’s only 120 miles an hour, but it seems as though your next stop will be Mars or Jupiter. Not the Earth. Glance down at Big Sioux. Reassurance. You’re still subject to the gravitation pull of the Earth. To the open expanse of land. And feel the coil of euphoria as you tumble amidst the whipping hand of the wind. And then you remember you’re not alone. There’s a staff videographer jumping alongside you.

This professional will capture the sounds, animations, and contortions of your every move during the dive. Solo or whether you’re tethered to a Tandem Master, those memories you’re creating will be captured for eternity. And a part of you relaxes knowing you’ll be able to relive this experience again and again.

Or perhaps you’ve chosen your Tandem Master to wear a GoPro videocam on the wrist or a helmet rather than a Staff Videographer, which costs slightly more money.

We recommend you add this video packages option to your skydive before your skydiving date. This will guarantee you a recording that captures the beauty of the moment.

The Artistry of Skydiving, Big Sioux Falls Style!


You worked hard to successfully achieve all seven levels of AFF training. Doing it over the wild west frontier of Big Sioux allowed you to imagine you were not alone as you practiced a wide range of motions in the air.

No wonder you imagined Indians were rounding up buffalo, or meandering through the tall scrub grasses, or building campfires where they spent the night under the moon and stars. Even though it was daytime every time you jumped. All of this made holding your USPA certification even sweeter. You’re a professional now with a mastery of every aspect of skydiving, as you pass over the Big Sioux Falls.

You’re now so comfortable moving through gusty winds, they’re almost second thoughts. So, you move your body one way, and then another, and slow your descent as you angle yourself to fall in a slightly different trajectory. Were you a sky photographer, this sort of body control would allow you to adjust your body to capture the right shot, regardless of the camera equipment you carried. And as you become a more professional, experienced presence in the sky you’ll get that difficult aerial photograph, every time you need it.
