Q. Can I wear a GoPro?
A. If you are a tandem student, no, you cannot. This is a USPA regulation and it has to do with your safety and that of your instructors and those on the ground. If you are an experienced skydiver with a C-license, at least 200 jumps, and the appropriate helmet mount, you can wear a GoPro.
Q. How old do I need to be?
A. You must be at least 18 the day of the jump.
Q. Is there a weight restriction?
A. Yes, 235 pounds is the max for a tandem. It’s a safety issue.
Q. Is there a height restriction?
Q. How long will it take?
A. You should anticipate spending 3-4 hours with us for a tandem, and all day with us for your first AFF class (ground school and two jumps).
Q. How fast will I free fall?
A. Free fall averages 120 mph or 176 feet per second, and takes about 60 seconds
Q. How experienced are your instructors?
A. All of our instructors are USPA-certified and have completed more than a thousand jumps. You’re in good hands!
Q. What should I wear?
A. Dress comfortably. Shorts and t-shirts in the summer, sweats or jeans in the winter, and tennis shoes. We provide jumpsuits, if you would like to wear one.
Q. Do I need a reservation?
A. It’s the best way to ensure you can jump at the time you want. We highly recommend it.
Q. Should I tip my instructor and/or videographer?
A. Yes, to both. If you enjoyed your skydive, a tip is a great way to show your appreciation!
Q. Can I get a video for my group?
A. You need to purchase one video for each skydiver. It is physically impossible for a videographer to shoot multiple tandems in free fall at the same time.
Q. Do you offer discounts?
A. Yes. We offer military, group and student discounts. Seasonal specials are posted on our home page, Facebook, and in our e-mails. Or you can always give us a call at 1 800-990-5509.
Q. Do you offer tandems for those with special needs?
A. Yes! We’ve been honored to take individuals who are blind, paraplegic and quadriplegic. If you would like to arrange such a jump, please contact us at 1 800-990-5509.
