WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF A TANDEM SKYDIVE?
You deserve the total experience when you pay for a tandem skydive:
- An experienced tandem skydiving instructor and the experience of a lifetime.
- Training to learn about your responsibilities on the dive and what you can expect.
- Use of gear, such as jumpsuits and helmets. Additional charge for goggles which are yours to keep.
- Ride to altitude – about 20 – 25 minutes – in our large Twin Otters with more room and comfort than at drop zones using smaller airplanes.
- Approximately 60 seconds in freefall.
- Around 5-6 minutes of parachute flight.
- An unforgettable experience of a lifetime.
- A comprehensive debrief with your tandem instructor – don’t underestimate the importance of this! Your jump will be overwhelming. The instructor debrief refreshes what just happened, giving longer-lasting, more vivid memories and recollection. It also provides a chance to talk about our AFF program.
- A Tandem Certificate documenting your jump.
- Videos and photo packages sold separately.
PRICE OF A FIRST TIME SKYDIVE
Some select a tandem skydiving school solely on price. Yes, you are selecting a School! The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) considers tandem skydiving a training jump to introduce you to the sport. About 3-4% of all persons making a tandem jump pursue a USPA skydiving license through our Accelerated Freefall Program. It is unusual for someone to make their first tandem jump to know for sure that they want to become a licensed skydiver. For many, it’s that first jump … and they just love it! We hope you will too!
Your total experience is more than getting out of an airplane. You are jumping at a United States Parachute Association member skydiving center. Be among our nation’s most highly trained skydiving and parachuting athletes. See and be involved in the sport. Just being at Skydive City will enlighten you to the sport and all it is.
