TANDEM STUDENT INFORMATION

GETTING READY FOR YOUR JUMP

If you've never been skydiving before, you've probably got a large number of questions as you prepare for your thrilling day.

  1. WHAT IS SKYDIVING LIKE?
    It’s very difficult to describe the sensation of the whole experience when you skydive for the first time. In truth, you will likely go through a whole range of emotions and end up with such a feeling of exhilaration that you’ll find it difficult to put into your own words.
  2. DO I NEED TO BE IN GOOD SHAPE TO SKYDIVE
    You will get a lot more enjoyment from your experience if you are in reasonably good shape. Keep in mind the maximum weight to do a tandem is 200 lbs (104.3kg) (IF YOU ARE OVER 200lbs PLEASE CALL FOR OVERWEIGHT PRICING AND INFO) You must also be able to raise your feet in front of you
    for landing, walk and jump without assistance.
    Remember no alcohol the night before and stay hydrated throughout your experience. If you’re in any doubt, then it’s a good idea to contact your medical professional.
    For our accessibility Tandem, please call the office.
  3. WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO SKYDIVE?
    The basic attire for your tandem should be lace-up athletic shoes, shorts or long pants, t-shirt (long or short sleeve). If it’s chilly outside, it will be much colder at altitude, so you may want to wear pants and a sweatshirt or light jacket. We do have jumpsuits available upon request.
  4. HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE?
    Skydiving is restricted to those who are 18 years of age or older and will be verified by your state issued ID. 
  5. HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN BE IN MY GROUP?
    This is an adventure that is best experienced with family and friends. Much will depend on the size of your entourage, but we certainly encourage this type of group experience.
    It may be necessary to spread certain large groups over a number of different flights. While human friends are most certainly welcome, your pets will have to hear about your experience when you get home.
  6. WILL WEATHER AFFECT MY JUMP?
    Your tandem jump will take place only if the weather conditions are suitable for skydiving. If the weather that day is marginal you are certainly welcome to call the drop zone prior to leaving your home to check weather conditions.
    When arriving for your jump, plan on spending at least ½ a day with us. Reservations are for you to get all of the necessary paperwork done when you first get here we can then sequence you for your jump. Two things we can’t control are weather and aircraft issues.
