But there’s more….
Following your jump, pumped full of energy, excitement a massive dose of pride, you’ll want to roam around the historic city of Hattiesburg.

The whir of the plane’s propellers as it slowly climbs. The tingling sensation of nerves, anxiety and excitement. The thumping of your heart as the plane’s door opens and your expert instructor moves you into position.
Suddenly, you jump.
Fear and anxiety transform into adrenaline and awe as you gaze upon the beautiful Southern Mississippi landscape. The rivers shimmering in the golden sunlight, the verdant pines and oaks. It’s a view and experience unlike any other. This is the moment you’ve been waiting for ever since you courageously booked your adventure with Skydiving.com Hattieburg, so you soak it all in. And if you don’t, you can thank yourself for choosing a video package to forever preserve these incredible moments.
You soar majestically through the air, wishing these moments would never end. But the ground creeps closer, your friendly instructor attached to your back expertly guides you to the landing zone and your feet hit the ground.
You did it. You successfully jumped out of an airplane and not only lived to tell the tale, but you’ve got videos to post to all your friends to prove it.
Tandem jumping is the most popular way for first-timers to enjoy the heart-pumping thrills of skydiving. It involves being attached to your friendly instructor via a snug and secure harness. Essentially, you will wear your instructor as a human backpack on your nerve-tingling plunge back to Earth. The instructor is directly in charge of your safety and will do almost all the work, leaving you free to enjoy the ride and the breath-taking views.
Ready to book your adventure, but still have lingering doubts or fears? Not a problem. Honestly, jumping out of an airplane is not for everybody and it’s not without inherent risk. But here’s the thing: It’s actually quite safe.
According to the United States Parachute Association, skydiving safety has steadily increased over the years and is now the safest it has ever been.
But chances are your friends don’t know this and will admire your incredible bravery. Don’t worry, we won’t tell them.
And that new backpack buddy of yours? He or she is highly-experienced, trained and certified by the USPA. Your instructor isn’t just on your back, he or she has got your back, too.
The Federal Aviation Administration requires all instructors to have at least:
Instructors also need to pass a certification course from the manufacturer of the parachute being used as well as pass a FAA medical exam. These are highly experienced people.
And it’s not just the competency of the instructors guarding your safety, it’s the equipment.
Tandem jumping requires a large parachute (360 square feet or bigger) to accommodate the weight of two passengers. The FAA requires all of those to be equipped with a main and reserve parachute as well as an automatic activation device. These are extra safety measures designed to deploy the parachute in the event skydivers are still at freefall at a certain altitude.
And the ropes and carabiners that harness you to your human backpack buddy? Those aren’t budging until you hit the ground and your new friend is slapping your back and shaking your hand.
Again, feel free to omit all those facts for your grand video showings, but skydiving is a lot safer than people think.
What to Expect from a Tandem Skydive in Mississippi
For starters, you can expect a thrilling one-of-a-kind adventure that will stay with you long after your feet hit the ground. And, should you choose one of the more popular video options, you’ll have a priceless video of your incredible day to show family and friends for years to come.
On the big day, you will arrive at our airfield and get hooked up with your instructor, who will be your new best friend and guardian angel for the day. You will be fitted for your diving suit and goggles and go through training exercises on skills like:
Requirements and recommendations
It is a requirement in the United States that skydivers be at least 18 years old with a valid ID.
Recommendations include things like wearing proper attire, preferably loose-fitting clothing (things get a little snug in the harness) and proper, closed-toe footwear suitable for landing – You don’t wear snow boots to the beach; don’t wear sandals or flip-flops skydiving.
It is also recommended you eat a proper breakfast as the day consumes a lot of energy. And you should avoid the keg party down the street or bar-hopping with friends the night before and show up well-rested and hydrated.
Mostly, you should come with a smile and ready for a mind-blowing experience that will make you the envy of all your terra firma-loving friends.
Want to cut the cord and take your skydiving experience to the next level? There are a pair of course options, accelerated freefall and tandem progression, where expert instructors will teach you all the skills necessary to spice up your jumps and ultimately experience freefall SOLO.
Accelerated Free Fall is a very popular program as it provides the fastest path towards to the ultimate experience of a solo free fall. Once bitten by the skydiving bug, you want to be able to experience the freedom of jumping unattached to an instructor. Plus, you’ll want to learn how to do some aerial acrobats for the camera as well. This Accelerated Free Fall program is the fastest way to get jumping and flipping on your own.
From the very first jump, you’ll be wearing your own parachute as you skydive with a pair of instructors holding your harness and coaching you on the way down.
If you prefer a more gradual introduction to the sport, the Tandem Progression course is perfect. Unlike accelerated freefall in which you are jumping on your own and attached to your instructors only by their grip, tandem progression offers the security of skydiving with your instructor attached to you back. It also allows students to learn at a more gradual pace rather than being fed a large amount of information at once.
After three tandem dives, you will transition to the Accelerated Free Fall program.
Both programs teach you all the skills necessary to be able to: exit the plan, perform aerial maneuvers, monitor your location and altitude, deploy your parachute and land on your own. They will also get you closer to the magic 25 skydives necessary to qualify for a United States Parachute Association A-License, which will allow you to skydive on your own at any USPA-approved center.
If you are unsure which program is best for you call our friendly experts at Skydive.com Hattiesburg and we’ll help figure out what is the best method for you.
Accelerated Free Fall is an extremely popular program because it’s the fastest way to learn everything you need to experience solo free fall and ultimately be able to skydive on your own.
More advanced than tandem skydiving where an instructor is physically harnessed to a jumper’s back, in Accelerated Free Fall, student skydivers will be accompanied by one or two expert instructors for at least three jumps. In initial jumps, the instructors hold the student’s harness and assist on the descent using hand-signals to communicate. All the hand signals are part of the extensive pre-jump training course taken prior to hopping on the airplane.
The AFF course takes place both on the ground and during dives. We will teach you equipment basics, emergency procedures, proper canopy deployment procedures, free fall techniques, communication techniques and a variety of other topics to best prepare you for your first solo free fall.
Initial jumps are focused on basic body positioning, altitude monitoring, tracking, proper parachute deployment and landing skills – everything you will need for your first solo free fall.
If the student runs into trouble at any point, the instructors are there to assist. Instructors can even deploy a student’s parachute themselves, if needed, as extra parachute “pull” handles are installed on student gear to make it easier for instructors to assist. All student parachutes are also equipped with an Automatic Activation Device that will fire the reserve parachute if the student is still in freefall at a certain altitude.
After students have proven they have learned the basic flying skills to progress, instructors will then move to release dives, where the student is told the instructor will release hold of the harness at a certain point – although they are still close by to assist if needed.
Once you’ve mastered those skills, it’s time to start showing off by learning how to control your body and fall-rate during aerial maneuvers – flips, turns, barrel rolls. Although you’ll be having a blast, these maneuvers are about more than just having fun, they are aimed at proving you can perform a disorienting move and regain control. Finally, you are ready to feel what skydiving is all about.
Once your advanced free fall training is complete, you are prepared, if you choose, to move on to coached jumps, where you will be taught the skills necessary to be able to skydive safely with others.
Each coached dive is aimed at teaching a specific skill that you can then go practice on your own. This has the added benefit of building your jump-count towards the 25 necessary to obtain an A-License from the United States Parachute Association. This license will allow you to make unsupervised solo jumps at any drop zone as well as pack their main parachute, engage in basic group jumps and water jumps.
If you prefer a more gradual introduction to the sport, the Tandem Progression course is perfect. Unlike Accelerated Free Fall in which you are jumping on your own and attached to your instructors only by their grip, Tandem Progression offers the security of skydiving with your instructor attached to your back. It also allows students to learn at a more gradual pace rather than being fed a large amount of information at once.
If you are unsure which program is best for you call our friendly experts at Skydive.com Hattiesburg (601-255-4500) and we will help figure out what is the best method for you.
In the Tandem Progression program, you will make three jumps with your instructor harnessed to your back. During each jump, the instructor will be teaching you skills and giving you a little bit more responsibility as your knowledge-base and confidence grow.
You will learn how to execute free fall maneuvers, monitor you altitude and deploy your parachute properly. Your instructor will also help you perform simulated emergency maneuvers that you were taught on the ground.
By your third tandem jump, your instructor will be giving you more and more control, allowing you to show off what you’ve learned and also to work on locating the airport unassisted and entering the landing pattern properly.
After landing your third jump, you should be brimming with confidence and ready to transition into the Accelerated Free Fall program.
During this phase, you will shed the instructor off your back and instead jump alongside a pair of instructors, who will physically hold you, but will not be attached.
Similar to tandem, your instructor will work alongside you giving you real-time critiques and advice.
Again, the goal will be to allow you more and more control with each successive jump, eventually transitioning to jumping alongside just one instructor. Now that your skills and confidence are improving, it’s time to have some real fun and you’ll begin working on flips, barrel rolls and other aerial acrobatics in freefall. Although these look cool, your instructor is actually testing you and allowing you to practice the ability to regain control after disorienting maneuvers. By this point, most students are landing unassisted and your training is complete.
