What if the weather is bad?
We keep a particularly close eye on the weather, but in the case where bad weather should move in, you will be rescheduled at no cost to you.
Can I wear a GoPro?
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.
How old do I need to be?
You must be at least 18 years of age on the day of the jump.
Is there a weight restriction?
Yes, 240 pounds is the maximum weight for a tandem. There will be an extra $20 charge for tandems over 225 lbs.
How long will it take?
You should anticipate spending 2-3 hours with us for a tandem.
How fast will I free fall?
Exiting the aircraft from 10,000 feet, free fall averages 120 mph (176 feet per second) and takes about 35 seconds.
How experienced are your instructors?
All of our instructors are USPA-certified.
What should I wear?
Dress for the weather as comfortably as you want. We also provide jumpsuits if you would like to wear one.
Do I need a reservation?
It's the best way to ensure you can jump at the time you want. Just visit our web page and click the "Book Now" tab. We do encourage walk-ins, but usually, we can only provide information and schedule your skydive. But who knows, we may have a last-minute cancellation that you are more than welcome to take.
Should I tip my instructor and/or videographer?
Yes, if you enjoyed your skydive, a tip is a great way to show your appreciation!
Do you offer discounts?
Yes. We offer discounts for Veterans, college students, individuals 65 years and older, First Responders (Police, EMT, Fire) and groups of 5 people or more. You can always give us a call at 220-FUN-JUMP.
Do you offer tandems for those with special needs?
Yes! Depending upon the disability. We can do it or refer you to one of our nearby sister skydive facilities. Call 220-FUN-JUMP for more details.
What if I enjoy my tandem so much that I want to learn to do it on my own?
Check out our first jump course information on the "Learn to Skydive" tab.
Can my friends and family come to watch me skydive?
Absolutely! They can walk out to the plane and watch you board. When the Pilot calls that they are at 5,000 feet, spectators will be escorted out to the landing area to get an up-close view of the landing.
