Everything is Bigger and Better in Texas
Waco is located between Dallas and Austin in Texas. With magnificent views of Lake Waco, Waco Suspension Bridge, Washington Avenue Bridge, and Baylor University, and with endless scenery, Waco serves as the perfect place for skydivers if they want a great experience to view the best-known landmarks.
The summers are hot, with the months of June through September being the hottest, averaging highs in the upper 90 degrees Fahrenheit and lows in the 70 degrees. The winter months range from the high 50 degrees Fahrenheit to lows in the 40 degrees. Waco offers weather that is perfect for those that prefer it a bit warmer or a bit chillier. Unlike the other cities in Texas, Waco is relatively smaller, so if the worry of big city noise or major road traffic is something that is making you second-guess your skydiving location decision, then this town is the perfect choice for you.
The Most Recommended Jump For First Timers!
At Parachuting.com Waco, we recommend a tandem jump for first time skydivers.

- You will be measured for the proper outfit and equipment.
- Board the plane with your instructor.
- Fly to the appropriate altitude.
- The instructor will attach themselves to your harness at four points.
- Walk towards the doorway and prepare to jump.
- You will then JUMP from 10,000+ feet and reach a speed of roughly 120 mph for about 26 – 30 seconds.
- Your instructor will open the parachute when you reached 5500 – 6000 feet.
- Peacefully descend.
- Watch the scenery while you fall to the drop zone for about 6 minutes.
- Land safely on to the ground.

Your tandem equipment includes:

- Automatic Activation Device; a small device that monitors speed and deploys the small chute in emergencies.

Best Certified Instructors!
Our instructors are certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and train students according to the proper rules and regulations. Training is through our Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) and Static Line Progression courses. Accelerated Free Fall training consists of 7 steps and moves quickly. It is accelerated in terms of jumping alone (Free Fall), but at first an instructor will accompany you. The first Free Fall jump will happen after seven hours of ground instruction.
The First Free Fall
The fall begins at 10,000-12,000 feet AGL and is taught by two AFF instructors who will keep physical contact by gripping the student using Harness Hold Training (HHT). HHT is used until the student deploys their chute at around 4,000 – 6,000 feet AGL. Instructors inform students when to deploy and assist them if needed. Students can expect about 50 seconds of Free Fall.
Seven Levels in United States Parachute Association (USPA) mandated AFF Instruction
The seven levels include assistance from two instructors who will give students instructions on: altitude, positions, stability, pull sequence, effective chute deployment methods, Free Falling, in-air skills, turns, movements, docking on to others and exits from the plane. The completion of each level will include a jump and demonstration of the main skydiving principles.
Static Line Progression (S/L)
With Static Line Progression training, the jump starts at 3,000 feet AGL where the student exits the plane in a balanced or suspended form. As the student falls, the main canopy is deployed by a ‘Static Line’ connected to the plane. Expect a 2 – 3 minute fall.
The training steps include 4 – 5 hours of ground instructions and 3 static line jumps. Subsequent jumps are Free Fall dives from progressively higher altitudes. After 25 jumps, students may apply for their A license in both AFF and S/L training courses.
Mastering Skydiving Opens The Doors To More Adventures
Once you have gone through the training and have earned your solo skydiving certification, you will have the confidence to go a little wild and pursue other fun activities that can be done, such as skydiving competitively. Or take a more professional route and become an instructor, or serve our country and pursue a pararescuer career with the Air Force.
Skydiving is a sport and like every sport, training is required. Practicing jumps and landing and Free Falling are all factors that play a part in this activity. Many competitions are held throughout the world that can be entered both in groups and individually.
In order to become an instructor, a person must be part of the United States Parachute Association and have completed 500 jumps and 3 hours of Free Fall, among other requirements and training. Instructors assist those wanting to go above Tandem skydiving, along with other instructors.
Pararescuers in the Air Force also requires more training in addition to being enlisted in the Air Force. Pararescuers work to provide aid in emergencies, during combat or during other accidents such as a plane crashing in the ocean or on the ground.

One Of The Most Fun Jobs In The Air
It takes a special kind of someone to have a job that consists of jumping out of a plane to capture footage only they can record! The job is exciting. Of course, being a professional skydiver is required as well as having awesome camera skills. The appropriate gear is also needed, such as helmets that can carry a camera. Knowing the correct camera to use is also needed. Many use cameras such as analog cameras or a GoPro.
Camera flyers also should have a mentor to teach them some techniques and tell them stories about their work. A camera flyer can expect to carry a bit more weight than a normal skydiver because of the gear. Expect them to capture the entire journey of the skydiver. Interviewing them on the plane, final thoughts they might have, and jumping out of the aircraft together. Remember, footage cannot be taken seconds later like a normal picture or video. It is all happening fast, so a camera flyer has to be great when it comes to attention to detail.
