This takes away the anxiety of jumping alone, and helps make your day truly unforgettable.
Q.) Why do people skydive?
A.) There are probably as many reasons that people skydive, as there are people that skydive. For some, it is intensely personal, a challenge met or an obstacle overcome. For others, it is a lifelong dream and a chance to “do the extreme thing” and get their adrenaline fix.
Q.) Can anybody skydive?
A.) You need to be 18 yrs of age with valid picture ID. You must weigh less than 230 lbs. (must be height and weight proportionate, some restrictions may apply). You must also be in good health.

A.) YES, we have been for many years.
Q.) Will I be scared in the plane?
A.) Most people tell us that they leave their fears on the ground and feel a sense of calmness as the plane rolls down the runway. When the door opens at jump altitude and you exit the plane your fears will probably have all gone away. Soon after jumping, sheer excitement of the adrenaline will take over!
Q.) Can I get a video footage & photographs of my skydive experience?
A.) We can arrange for you to have a personal camera flyer to video and photograph your skydive experience on the ground, in the plane, and to skydive with you to capture your experience in freefall.
Q.) Where do you land?
A.) We land right on Skyhaven Airport, located in the beautiful Endless Mountain region of Wyoming County.
Q.) How long will the skydive take?
A.) This initial formality usually takes about 30- 45 minutes. With the training, preparation, aircraft ride, jump, and skydive debrief, you should plan on being here for about 1/2 a day. Usually, we will have you on your way home in 2-3 hours. If you want to be out of here as soon as possible we highly recommend morning appointments. Mid-morning to early afternoon, especially on the weekends, are always busy.
Q.) What should I wear?
A.) Dress accordingly for the conditions. During the hot summer months, shorts & t-shirts are fine as we can provide jumpsuits to all tandem divers. Sneakers are recommended.
Q.) Will weather ever be a problem?
A.) No, we will not be jumping when it is raining, very windy or when the clouds are lower than 4,000 feet, but we still can do your training. That way you can be ready to jump right away if you have to come back another day. Weather can causes unexpected delays, so please be patient, we are trying to get you in the air as quickly and safely as possible.

A.) Yes, be sure to check our website or call and ask us about our special programs at 1-800-229-5557.
Q.) Is it true you can never forget your first jump?

Q.) Will I be required to sign a liability waiver?
A.) Yes, similar to almost every adventure sport facility, at Endless Mountain Skydivers, Inc. tandem skydivers must sign our assumption of risk & liability waiver agreement to make a tandem skydive. Skydivers may take all the time they wish to read and consider the agreement before signing it.
Q.) Will my tandem skydive count toward any accredited skydiving certifications?
A.) Yes. To receive your ‘A’ License from the USPA, you must complete the freefall course and make 25 skydives. Your tandem skydive will count toward the requirement. Simply advise your instructor that you would like a certificate evidencing your tandem skydive. Your instructor will provide you with a signed certificate right after your jump at no extra cost.
