SO YOU’RE A NEWBIE
Tandem jumping is the ultimate introduction to skydiving. Skydiving tandem is a fun, low-stress and safe way for first-time jumpers to experience the thrill of a lifetime. After filling out a few simple forms, you’ll be paired with an experienced jump instructor who will guide you every step of the way.
THE PROOF YOU MADE THE LEAP – PHOTOS & VIDEO
Want to capture your tandem skydive experience? For an additional cost, you can add photos and video of your jump to your package. Share your experience with all the people who thought you’d never take the leap and have the video to prove it!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Once fitted with your jumpsuit and harness, your instructor will discuss the basics of freefall body position. Then you board the aircraft and enjoy a scenic ascent over 2 miles up into the sky. Take this time to ask questions and get to know your videographer. The moment after your instructor asks if you’re ready to skydive you’ll experience the most thrilling minute of your life as you freefall one mile at speeds approaching 120 miles an hour. Once your chute opens, you’ll enjoy a 5 minute float to the ground while you take in the breathtaking views of the Susquehanna River and the beautiful Endless Mountains.
We’ll provide just about everything you need. That being said, here are a few things to keep in mind: Dress comfortably and wear a decent pair of sneakers. Boots are too heavy and sandals will come flying off. Be sure to have a little something to eat. Jumping on an empty stomach isn’t a great idea. We want you to be alert and feeling good to experience the best jump you can.
You must be 18 years of age to jump, no exceptions. There are weight restrictions as well. Females must not exceed 200 pounds and males must not exceed 230 pounds. Students over 230 pounds must pay 2 dollars per pound of extra weight; we have a 500 pounds total on the system which includes the instructor, passenger, gear, and clothing (this is mandated by the manufacturer of the tandem system). Height and weight must be proportionate. Alcohol consumption is strictly forbidden 12 hours before (and obviously during) the jump. Please note: this is not a request; this is a requirement by the FAA.
