Tandem jumping has been around since the early 80's. It is about the easiest and most common way to do that "First Jump". After about 15 minutes of pre-jumps training that will include the gear you will use, aircraft and exit procedures, freefall body position and altitude awareness, canopy control and landing technique, you will ascend to 13,000 feet in our twin turbine aircraft. Wearing a harness connected directly to the Tandem parachute system and our highly trained instructors, plus optional videographer. You will jump together and accelerate to 120 mph , freefalling for about 60 seconds. At about 5000', we will open the parachute, and then you will assist the instructor in steering the parachute during the 6-8 minute descent. During that time you will get to practice the landing techniques, and flying the parachute assisted by your instructor and then land on the dropzone with your video person waiting to film it all.
