Tandem Skydives

Tandem skydiving is the quickest way to get a taste of freefall. Ground school lasts for approximately one hour. You and your instructor will then gear up and board one of our jump planes. Once you reach exit altitude your tandem instructor will hook their harness to yours and you will exit the aircraft connected to your instructor. You will experience approximately 30 seconds of freefall before you or your instructor deploys the parachute at around 5,000 feet, after which you will enjoy a 5 to 7 minute canopy ride back to the landing area. Photos and video of your jump are available for purchase before the jump. $50 non-refundable deposit included in all bookings.

Static Line First Jump Course


Skydive Adventures offers a Static Line Class for our First Jump Course (FJC). It is your first step toward becoming a licensed skydiver. The FJC is a one day course and will include all the training necessary for you to make your first solo skydive. Class lasts approximately 6 hours and includes practical and lecture instruction. You will make your first skydive the same day, weather permitting, from one of our jump planes.


The jump will be a static line jump from an altitude of 3,500 feet above the ground. During a static line jump, the parachute is automatically deployed after you exit the aircraft. Your training will focus on a stable body position for exit, canopy flight, and landing. An instructor rides with you in the aircraft to assist with climbing out and exiting the plane, but it is a solo jump: you are wearing your own parachute and are not connected to an instructor. After your parachute is open there is an instructor on the ground who will assist you with flying and landing your parachute via radio commands. You must make a minimum of five static line jumps before progressing to freefall.


You must be:

-At least 18 years of age on the day of the jump

-Weigh less than 230 lbs in street clothes

-In good physical health
