Skydiving Goes Deeper Than Jumping

Get up, go to work, take care of family: The components of a happy and successful life, right? Yes, and no. Sometimes we just need to shake things up and to step outside of our “normal” in order to get back in touch with ourselves. This is where skydiving comes in. Yes, jumping out of a plane in excess of 13,000 feet can bring a little life into even the most set routine. Whether it’s your first time or your 50th, a good jump can rejuvenate your life! The rush of air, the fall that feels like flying, and the anticipation of the whole thing can bring a new level of excitement to everything.


Call Parachuting.com at 417-616-3810 and bring the excitement back!

Springfield, Missouri: Beautiful from any altitude!


Skydiving is a life-changing experience in and of itself, but getting to do it in a beautiful location can take it to a whole new level! Springfield brings together the best of both worlds. It combines the cosmopolitan feel of a big city with the details that only nature can bring. From Bransyn to the Ozarks, this is really a win for everyone!

The midwest is known for its temperate climate and beautiful gently rolling landscape. The view from 13,000 feet is absolutely indescribable, and there’s plenty to do once you’re back on solid ground. Sports fans will enjoy the Springfield Cardinals, while those less-than-enthusiastic about baseball will enjoy the many hiking and cycling trails available. This is more than just an aerial adventure — it’s an opportunity to enjoy the best that Missouri has to offer.

Springfield, Missouri Tandem Parachuting

Getting started with Tandem jumps


Tandem jumps are a fantastic way for beginners to earn their wings. You get all of the fun with none of the real responsibility. These kinds of jumps are genuinely a time for you to experience skydiving while a certified United States Parachuting Association instructor attaches to you and pulls the cord. This is a great time to relax and enjoy a view that few people will ever have the chance to experience.

We encourage you to come a little bit early. This gives you time to get a feel for the layout of the facilities and gives our staff the chance to introduce themselves and get to know you a little bit. They will also take this time to show you some basic body positions. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.

Next, you’ll get to relax and enjoy an informational video about skydiving. We’ll answer any questions that you may have, and then we’ll start getting you dressed for the occasion. Yep, you’ll need specialized gear.

This is where it gets fun. You’ll now board the airplane with your instructor and fly to an altitude of about 13,000 feet. Your instructor will attach himself to you via a harness, and you’ll finally jump! You’ll get to fall for about 30 seconds before your instructor will pull the cord and you fall gently back to the ground. Then, you can start planning your next jump!

The Gear

We’re going to set you up with some of the state-of-the art skydiving gear before the jump. You can expect to wear safety goggles, a four-point harness (which your instructor can attach to), and a parachute with all the bells and whistles. By this, we mean a chute, a backup chute, and a nifty little device that acts as a catalyst to deploy the backup in case of an emergency. This is really an experience designed to be as safe as it is awesome.

Relax with our drop zones

Before, during and after the jump, you’re going to get really well acquainted with our drop zones. We’ve worked really hard to make these as comfortable and as functional as possible. There will be a relaxing seating arrangement, and some of our facilities offer everything from food vendors to picnic areas. Feel free to call us and we can give you the details. This is a great place for friends and family to hang out and for you to meet up afterwards. This is also a really good time to consider camera angles. You’ll definitely want all of the proof that you can get of your epic jump!

You’ll need evidence

Speaking of proof, you’ll definitely want photos and videos of your jump. Parachuting.com of Springfield, Missouri, can offer a couple of different options that can really preserve the moments. We have ways to video the entire process from start to finish with both a GoPro camera or a more professional option. We’ll get into that a little bit more later on.

If you have a real passion for skydiving, then you’re definitely the kind of person we want to train for certification! Reach out to someone and ask about our skydiving academy. While you’re asking about the skydiving academy, don’t forget to get some information about our gift certificates.

Solo Parachuting Academy in Springfield, Missouri

Ready to learn more?


Our Skydiving Academy can take you to the next level of jumping. If you’ve reached the point that you feel like you’re ready for a solo jump, we’re ready for you! We have USPA-certified instructors that have a genuine love of this sport, and they want to see you succeed. We can take you all the way through your certification, if that’s what you choose.

Check out some of our options below:

The Accelerated Free Fall
This is an accelerated seven-step training program that can get you ready for that first solo jump faster than more traditional methods. After about five hours of ground training, we can have you jumping. You’ll be accompanied by two instructors who will maintain physical contact with you throughout the jump. They will cue you at the appropriate time to pull the cord and instruct as you go.

The First Fall: Levels 1-3
You’ll be jumping from about 10,000 feet with both of your instructors. As you progress through these jumps, you’ll be actively taught positioning, timing and emergency procedures. On your last jump, you’ll be released to finish the fall all on your own.

Levels 4-7
These are all jumps that you’ll be completing solo. As you become more confident, we’ll cover the remaining skills and get you ready for those awesome superman jumps at last!
*After 25 solo jumps, you’ll be ready for certification!

Static Line Progression

This is the older method of training and it actually takes longer before you are cleared for completely solo jumps. With this method, you’ll be jumping from about 3,000 feet. Your ripcord will be triggered by a connection with the aircraft, and you will slowly gain independence as you become familiar with the process. This requires another five hours of ground work and a progressive curriculum.

Experience it over and over again!


Parachuting.com can offer you some incredible video options. We all know that you’re going to want to preserve this experience in every way possible. You’ll need proof for all of your naysaying buddies back home. And let’s be honest, it’s just really cool to watch over and over again! So hit that replay button and check these out:

The GoPro
This is a small camera that can be attached to your instructor. It provides awesome, high-quality material that follows you throughout your entire jump. Every (completely brave) facial expression and reaction will be recorded and preserved for you and your friends and family to watch later. This material can be put onto a DVD and still shots can be offered, as well.

The Videographer
This is the gold standard of professionally capturing your skydiving experience. This is an actual professional photographer/videographer who is going to follow you throughout every moment of your experience with us. They will do a pre-jump interview and follow you onto the plane. The videographer is also a certified skydiver who will jump right before you in order to capture every moment of your experience.

He will land slightly before you and continue to record you all the way to your (hopefully) graceful landing. Then, he’ll wrap it up with an exit interview. This footage will be placed on a DVD and may even be professionally set to music.

Becoming a Skydiving Videographer


This is a highly specialized profession that requires years of experience in two different fields. First, this person needs to be comfortable skydiving and working toward receiving USPA certification. From here, the individual realizes that he can combine his passion for media with his passion for the jump!

Our videographers have years of experience in both photography and videography. They take these to the sky by working hard to figure out what works for them. They will painstakingly test different types of video equipment using indoor facilities.

They must be incredibly careful due to the added weight of the necessary equipment and the extra demands on their attention. They must to be able to capture your experience, while making sure that they can land safely at the same time. There aren’t any real requirements for video equipment, and safety standards for this duel profession are still in the making.

If you think that this is something that you might be interested in, look it up or talk to your videographer on your next dive!

There’s no better time than right now! Call 417-616-3810 today!
