Explore and be inspired with an assisted skydive.


When people consider taking up a new hobby, skydiving is not typically at the forefront of their list. But believe us, once we help you to tackle the common fear of dizzying heights, skydiving will undoubtedly become your favorite activity. Our Tandem Jump offers an unrivaled, adrenaline-charged adventure, with the added comfort of step-by-step assistance by an FAA certified skydive instructor. After scheduling your first jump, there are some important preparations to bear in mind.

Be sure to arrive at the drop zone before the scheduled jump. This will give you the opportunity to acquaint yourself with the instructor and the facility, as well as find out where your friends and family will be waiting.The instructor will brief you on the essentials before boarding, such as body positioning and skydive gear. They’ll also have you watch an informational video detailing the Tandem Jump process.

All the Gear!

Free falling from 14,000 feet above ground at a max speed of 120mph might seem daunting, but on top of instructional guidance you will also become acquainted with the gear necessary for a safe, successful skydive.

These include goggles, a passenger harness for the instructor, the main and Drogue chutes, as well as an Automatic Activation Device, or AAD. The Drogue is an auxiliary chute designed to support two people, and the AAD is a device that calculates the skydiver’s speed and altitude and deploys the reserve chute if necessary.

As you are making your swift, assisted descent toward the drop zone, your parachute will deploy around 6000 feet and you will float comfortably to the ground.

Soak up the skydive with ease and comfort!

Leave the fearlessness to the skydivers with our cozy drop zone seating offered at our Tacoma, Washington location. Perfect for friends and family, there are a plethora of potential options, including on-site food and beverage vendors and picnic seating.

To make sure, you may inquire about seating and amenities by calling 253-617-4430, where our friendly customer service team will answer any and all concerns. Often guests will want to bring along a camera, so as to capture the magic as the divers parachute gently into the drop zone. As always, bringing your own amenities is perfectly acceptable, and suggested.

Make your memorable skydiving experience unforgettable.

While we always advise that guests bring a camera to catch the action, videotaping from the ground only does so much. If you want to turn your memorable skydiving adventure into an unforgettable one, then look no further than our choice of professional videography options. The GoPro choice is not only affordable, but because it firmly attaches to the instructor’s headgear, provides a breathtaking first-person perspective from start to finish. Or hire one of our professional videographers to capture every facial expression and scream during your descent. All of this, plus the Tandem Jump itself, can be purchased with one of our gift certificates.

Solo Parachuting Academy in Tacoma, Washington

Earn your certification with style and ease.


There’s no turning back after your first Tandem Jump- not because of any binding obligation, but because it will be too much to resist. Our Skydiving Academy is an excellent entry point, and the only choice that prepares the passionate diver for a profession in aerial thrills. We offer two primary skydiving courses: the Accelerated Free Fall, or AFF, and the Static Line Progression.

Instructed by professional FAA certified skydivers,

You’ll be eligible through training to hold the distinction of becoming FAA certified as well.

AFF allows you to earn your certification faster through 7 concise steps. Relative to the amount of ground training prior to diving, as well as free fall assistance with a dedicated instructor, the candidate will commence their solo skydive only after the third step is completed.

Your first free fall will commence at 10-12,000 feet above ground and will be assisted by 2 AFF instructors using the Harness Hold Training method. They will grip your harness until you are prompted, and have successfully deployed your chute at around 5,000 feet. Steps 1-3 include mastering body position, proper chute deployment and altitude comprehension; steps 4-7 include air skills, such as aerial maneuvering and docking onto others.

Be certified!

  • Each successive level will require a dive to demonstrate skills and principles learned. Both AFF and SLP instructions require the candidate to complete 25 jumps during the Integrated Student Program to earn their license.
  • In SLP, however, a jump commences at 3,000 feet above ground, where the candidate is suspended by a ‘static line’ connected to the aircraft and deployed by the main chute.

Your training will include 4-5 hours of ground instruction, followed by two successful SLP dives, a proper chute deployment, 3 more dives executing proper chute deployment, then afterward, your first free fall!

Train your way into a rewarding career!

Parachuting.com Tacoma, Washington Videos and Imagery

The unforgettable memory is nothing without awesome footage.


Try as they might, your friends and family filming your skydive from the drop zone will capture just a brief portrait of the whole blood-pumping experience. At best, they’ll be able to tape you as you gently parachute to the ground. To videotape the meat and potatoes of your skydive, Parachute.com offers two fantastic and affordable choices of video packages: the GoPro, and the assisted, professional videographer.

The GoPro is the more affordable and intimate option. Your instructor will record, from a first-person vantage point, your pure exhilaration of soaring through silver-turquoise Tacoma skies into the whipped ocean of clouds below. Within an hour after landing you may take home a CD copy, allowing you to share your freefall on social media platforms and showcasing to your loved ones the incredible experience through your eyes.

Hiring a professional videographer, however, allows you the privilege of having your entire day catalogued, from before you even step onto the aircraft until you parachute into the drop zone. This includes sharing any thoughts before or after, as well as every yell and facial expression during the descent. Albeit slightly more expensive, this option gives you the best bang for your buck.

Inspire, and be inspired, with aerial videography.


Even better than having your awesome free fall videotaped for others to enjoy, is sharing your love for skydiving with fellow enthusiasts. There’s an art to becoming a professional aerial videographer; it requires not only dedication and training, but a very steady hand. If you’re inspired to become a certified skydiver, why not inspire others the same way?

After completing your AFF or SLP training, finishing 25 jumps and becoming FAA certified, you will be allowed to videotape a free fall for professional or recreational purposes. Should you decide to make a career of it, there are a few important nuances to bear in mind. First and foremost is practice: you need to become proficient not only with solo skydiving, but wielding a camera in the process. Building a clientele completely hinges on your capacity from both fronts, as they are paying for your services.

Secondly is the question of equipment. What camera is affordable enough, provides the best quality video, and has decent leverage for the duration of the descent? The GoPro is likely the most affordable, the casing costing roughly $30. A career as a professional aerial videographer can become rather costly, but don’t let that discourage you.

Actions truly speak louder than words – call 253-617-4430 today!
