What is a tandem skydive and how does it work?

A tandem skydive is the safest, most exhilarating way to experience skydiving. You are a attached via a harness to a highly-trained USPA-rated instructor who handles all the details from exit to landing, so you can enjoy the adrenaline rush.

On arrival at Skydive Indianapolis, you'll watch a brief training video. After you're manifested, you'll meet your instructor for a pre-jump briefing and get geared up. Together, you'll board the plane. As you climb to jump altitude, your instructor will go over instructions again. At 13,000 feet, the door will open, and you and your instructor will exit together into blue skies. You'll free fall at 120 mph and at 5,000 feet, your instructor will deploy the parachute, and together, you'll soar back home. If you want to help steer, just ask! 

It’s just that simple, safe and thrilling.
