Face your Worries
Regardless of how you feel at the moment, skydiving will get your blood flowing and your mind freed from all of your worries. This is a bodily reaction to adrenaline, which is one of the most ancient “drugs” the human body can produce: it accelerates your heart rate, tenses your muscles to make you hyperalert and ready for whatever is coming at you. You may have heard the expression “adrenaline junkie”. Yes, it means exactly what you think: you can get addicted to this exhilarating feeling and you want to experience it over and over again. We have good news: the experts are here to give thrill-seekers a well-deserved adrenaline rush!
You may have worries about skydiving. We completely understand: jumping out of a plane at an altitude of about 10,000 feet does sound extreme. But there’s nothing to worry about because experienced instructors are all certified by the FAA and have dived hundreds or even thousands of times. You’re in good hands, all you need to do is enjoy the rush!
Skydiving can change your life, and by this we don’t only mean your possible fear of heights. Consider what’s happening: you’re jumping out of an airplane, experiencing the incomparable rush of freefall and parachuting, and then you land on the ground safely. This sounds really scary but you’re doing it and admit: you’re enjoying every second. So isn’t it possible that you can tackle any other tough situation in your life just as easily?
The adrenaline helps clear your mind and focus your attention to the extreme. There is a lesson to be learned from that: face your fears in every other aspect of your life as well and you’ll be unstoppable!
Get rid of your anxieties
Like every other life-changing situation, skydiving can help put all your issues in perspective. When you’re freefalling at 120mph, your mind becomes clear and focused on the task at hand. You can recreate this experience and get rid of your anxieties, face your fears and tackle everything that hinders you from reaching your best potential!
Imagine soaring in the sky under a parachute, with the expert guidance of a professional skydiving instructor. Just the sound of it envelops you in a great calm and reduces the stress of your daily life. The experience literally puts everything into perspective. Try skydiving just once and change your life forever!
Further benefits of skydiving
Regular skydivers report an overall increase of fitness and strength, especially in the upper body from carrying the equipment. The impact on mental health is even better: successfully tackling a challenging situation like skydiving creates confidence and positive thinking.
It’s almost impossible to measure the total benefits of skydiving in a person. So why not try and see for yourself what positive changes you can gain from this life-changing experience? Open your eyes to the world and see yourself in a different light!

Skydiving.com El Paso can set you up with advanced training at several partnered locations. There are 7-8 levels of instruction in accelerated freefall we provide to skydiving enthusiasts who want to get their license from the USPA (United States Parachute Association). The course starts with 5-6 hours of ground training where you’ll learn the theory behind skydiving and how to execute important maneuvers while free falling and parachuting. Then it’s time for your first solo dive! Two professional skydiving instructors will accompany you and will be close by to aid you in any way. Level 1 of the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) course includes body positions, turning, measuring altitude, deploying your parachute and controlling your canopy.
What is the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) program?
The AFF program helps students to gain the necessary confidence for skydiving alone. The first few dives in the framework of the AFF look like a normal tandem jump: your instructor will be strapped to you during the freefall portion of your dive. However, once freefalling is finished and the parachute is released, the instructors will detach themselves and open their own canopy, thus enabling the students to parachute and land by themselves. A technique called “Harness Hold Training” is employed to ensure the student’s safety and position while freefalling.
In the AFF program, students usually are taught to release their canopies at an altitude of 5.500 feet above ground. If for some reason, the student doesn’t release his or her parachute, the instructor uses hand signals to direct the student’s attention to the parachute. This is usually enough to remind the student of what needs to be done. If this doesn’t work, the trainer will put the student’s hand on the parachute release. If this is still not enough, the instructor will deploy the canopy for the student. In addition, student harnesses are equipped with extra pull handles that allow the coaches to release the student’s parachute at any time. As you can see, the skydiving school’s number one priority is always the student’s safety.
Once the instructors are satisfied that a student has mastered all the skills required for freefalling and is able to release his or her own parachute alone, the student has to demonstrate his or her abilities in order to start the next step. This demonstration includes a series of solo dives where the instructor may not be able to directly assist the student, this is why it’s important that the student is able to release their own canopy.
AFF trainers have a “hard deck” which is an altitude where they must deploy their own parachute to save their own life. This doesn’t mean the student is left alone, because the student apparatus features an “Automatic Activation Device” (AAD) that will release the reserve canopy if the student passes a certain altitude (called activation altitude) at a speed associated with freefalling. The AAD activation happens very rarely, but you can rest assured that this last level of protection will save the student’s life if he or she is unable to control their fall or open their parachute for some reason.
During these training dives, trainers usually employ hand signals to draw the student’s attention to the proper body position. When everybody is safely back on the ground, the instructor evaluates the dive together with the student and gives advice for the next jump. Once you reach higher levels, only one coach will be assigned to you who will teach you everything about airborne maneuvers like moving forward, turns, flips, and controlling your fall rate. These exercises prove to both your instructor and to you that you are able to correct your position in the air. This is done by a method called disorienting procedure where deliberate instability is induced so you can prove you are able to restore control. You go through the different levels as you learn more and more and grow more confident.
The instructors measure the progress of students by asking them to complete a set of benchmarks that are called the “Targeted Learning Objectives” (TLOs). Your trainer will watch you closely and evaluate your progress and whether you’ve reached your TLOs. During skydiving jumps, all trainers are connected to the ground by radio. The ground staff helps monitoring the dive and give crucial information about the weather and other factors. Should the radio connection fail, the trainers are completely equipped to land on their own and guide their students to do so as well.
Once you’ve completed all the levels, the only thing you need to do is apply to the USPA to get your “A” level license. As this process may take time, we recommend to our students that they register with the USPA before their training program has ended.

The videographer will record your jump and dive after you to capture your freefall and parachute-ride as well. Smile for the camera! Your videographer will land before you so your grounding can be captured on tape as well. To wrap up your experience, your videographer will ask you a few questions after landing so you can accurately describe how you feel when your skydive is finished. Then your videographer will edit your video and will present you the perfect depiction of the greatest adventure of your life!

Whenever you learn to tandem skydive, you’ll spend about 30 minutes training to make sure that you understand the mechanics of skydiving in El Paso.

Once on board, the plane will climb to the 14,000 feet of altitude necessary for you to be ready for your jump. As you hit the desired altitude, the door to the plane will open up and your heart will race as you look out over El Paso, Texas in the distance.
