Here is how it works
The Tandem is the simplest way to introduce anyone to freefall skydiving. Your adventure begins after a USPA certified tandem instructor takes you through a short 20 to 30 minutes of training.
You and your instructor are harnessed together in a special parachute system built for two people. You will then ascend to between 11,000 to 14,000 feet depending on the aircraft being used.
The view from there is absolutely amazing. Your heart will start beating faster and faster with anticipation. You and your instructor then jump out of the plane experiencing the extreme rush of freefall. Grinning from ear to ear as you fall for a mile and reach speeds up to 120mph you realize it feels as though you are floating suspended miles above the earth.
Now it's time for the second part of this amazing adventure. The parachute is deployed and the two of you glide through the sky towards the earth suspended under a huge canopy for 5-10 minutes. Amazed by the view you glide to earth excited to tell everyone about the amazing adventure you had just been on.
You can also immediately transition to AFF after only one jump and continue your skydiving training. The maximum weight for Tandem & AFF students is 230lbs.
