Surfing the Air Currents Above Syracuse, New York


Of course, the main reason skydive enthusiasts chase the wind is for the thrill of it all. But the view from up here is amazing, too. The Finger Lakes look exactly like, well, fingers when you are skydiving.

Spend an afternoon flying over the Carrier Dome and Syracuse University. We’re not encouraging you to blow off class. We’re just saying that spending an afternoon skydiving beats struggling to stay awake learning Chemistry (or teaching Chemistry . . . we count students and professors among our friends at parachuting.com).

In fact, skydiving fans are not always typical and include people from all walks of life. Whether you are a teacher or student, retail clerk or firefighter, stay-at-home Mom or boardroom executive, you can try it! Perhaps it will even become a lifelong hobby. You will be in good company with other skydiving fans in Syracuse.

Syracuse, New York Tandem Parachuting

Tandem Jumps for Beginners…How to Get Started


Newbies get the most benefit out of a Tandem jump, when an FAA certified instructor facilitates their dive. Check out what Syracuse looks like from 14,000 feet and learn from a real pro!

What to Expect
When you arrive at the location, or drop zone, you will meet your instructor who will lay out the details, including how to position yourself during the jump. You will view a video on what to generally expect and then, you will be outfitted in the appropriate gear.

Once you are suited up, you will board the aircraft with your instructor and ascend to the appropriate elevation. This is where it starts to get fun! Your instructor will attach to you using a cable and the two of you will move close to the door to prepare for the jump.

You will jump from about 10,000 feet and freefall for about 30 seconds! At precisely the right moment when you reach approximately 6000 feet, your parachute will be deployed and you will enjoy a peaceful descent back to the ground to join your friends.

Equipment for the Jump

You can feel confident in your FAA certified instructor. We deal with newcomers just like you almost every day. You will be outfitted with an Automatic Activation Device, or AAD, that monitors your altitude and speed and even deploys a reserve chute, if needed. So yes, you have back up! You will also receive other equipment including goggles, a harness and parachutes. You are ready!

Get in the Zone

See you at the drop zone! See? You are already talking like a skydiver.

Our drop zone is the zone where family and friends anxiously await your arrival during a jump. They will be able to witness your glorious freefall from the comfort of this zone. Feel free to bring a crowd, or just one or two special people.

Depending on time of year, available amenities include comfortable seating, and often, picnic tables, vending machines or food and drink for sale. We are happy to accommodate your needs. Inquire within the drop zone headquarters about what services are available.

Pictures Worth 1,000 Words

While in the drop zone, your guests can use cameras to capture your fall. These will be the best social media posts ever made by you! In fact, we offer videography. Please ask about video services to record your whole experience.

And don’t be surprised if your friends in the drop zone decide that they want to give skydiving a try, as well. Coach your friend along and help them learn through your experience. Gift certificates for tandem jumps are perfect for that curious would-be skydiver who wants to taste the air at 10,000 feet!

Solo Parachuting Academy in Syracuse, New York

Your Path to Skydiver Certification


Are you considering becoming an FAA certified skydiver? You have come to the right place! Solo skydive, or become a professional and train others.

FAA Mandates and Blue Capes

The Federal Aviation Administration sets forth the rules for skydiving. We offer comprehensive training that accelerates at the pace most comfortable for the student.

Our class in Static Line Progression moves you forward at specific intervals, determined by you and your instructor. But keep in mind, the more you jump, the more quickly you advance! Each tiered level requires necessary ground prep, a few Static line jumps and then moves on to dummy ripcord jumps, or DRP.

In the DRP, you will be required to demonstrate the ability to successfully pull the ripcord in a jump. Usually, the student will complete five DRP jumps or more to become adequate. Then things start to move faster!

After this, you will progress to higher altitudes and longer freefall delays. Completion of the Static Line Progression class generally takes about twenty four jumps.

AFF…

For those who want to be on the fast track, as part of your Accelerated Free Fall or AFF, training you will participate in a six-hour training class as a precursor to the next learning level. Here you will get the basics including aircraft procedures, training equipment, landing, canopy control and instruction on emergency procedures. Be prepared for hand-on training with all the equipment.

This course will train you on the 13,000-foot freefall and how to exit the aircraft, deploy your parachute and come in for a safe landing. This is a seven-step program, but you will be in an accelerated training mode in AFF and will be jumping solo before you know it!

You will be performing ‘Superman’ exits from the aircraft in one of the last steps, so get your blue cape ready!

The Gift of an Adrenaline Rush!


Every year since you were a kid, you probably gave your brother the same old boring sweater for Christmas. And every year, he probably acted surprised and told you he liked it. But in reality, you both know that he probably didn’t and it likely was returned to the same bin that you found it in at the store.

It is time to think outside of the box. How about a gift certificate for skydiving?

Our gift certificates are the perfect thing for someone that already has an interest in skydiving, or for someone that you know would just love either the excitement of one jump, or may even pursue it as a rad hobby or even career.

So you may wonder, how exactly do you give skydiving as a gift? We make it easy! We have gift certificates that are redeemable for a Tandem Skydive with an FAA certified instructor. That means anyone can redeem it, regardless of experience level since a qualified professional will be taking the jump with them.

Our gift certificates are totally transferable between individuals and locations (fees apply in rare instances) and they are valid for two years of the initial purchase date.

Parachuting.com Syracuse, New York Videos and Imagery

Amazing Aerial Photos While Skydiving


Our imagery packages are an ideal add-on. Choose our videography service and a camera flyer will make the jump with you and document everything, moment-by-moment! Or go with our GoPro/Handycam option and have your instructor take the video. Either way, you’ll get great video to share with friends and family.

The Cost of Being Awesome on Film
Our videography service is more expensive than GoPro because you will have an additional person (videographer) taking the jump with you. They will be with you on the plane and exit slightly ahead of you, to capture your exit and freefall on film, along with your reactions and movements.

Since the videographer jumps first, they will also be able to record your entire landing from the ground and give you a few minutes to wax poetic on camera about your epic experience, once you have landed. After you arrive at the drop zone, the video will be edited, set to music and be ready to take home with you, typically within the hour.

Get a video package and relive the day over and over! Create a video of your first jump or demonstrate your abilities on camera if you are an experienced jumper.

Want to become a Skydiving Videographer?


Skydivers can become certified instructors, jump competitively or become pararescuers. Plus, you can put your skydiving certification to work as a videographer!

The work these men and women do is not to be underestimated. From filming competitive formations to jumps for fun, they are a very important part of the skydiving process. As a skydiving videographer, or camera flyer, you will be one of a handful of photographers able to get shots most people only dream about.

To fill the role, it is recommended that you hold no less than a class C license and specific gear. That gear may include special skydiving headgear with a camera mount. The mounted camera will get incredible shots!

Once you exit the plane, the idea will be to tell a video story about the jumper’s experience. You will want to get the best angles, facial expressions and final comments after landing. For formation photography, you will be required to shoot from certain angles to ensure that you properly photograph the grips.

Imagine getting paid to skydive and take pictures! It is truly a labor of love for those who do it and we are happy to help you along the way.

Thanks! See you in the zone. Call 315-565-0212 today!
