Have you ever watched someone skydiving either on TV or online, and longed to skydive too? Skydiving is simply putting on a harness, jumping out of an airplane, and floating to the ground, right? Not exactly, but the tandem masters at our partner dropzone are here to show you the proper way to make your first jump. First of all, you’ll meet your Tandem master, and spend part of your skydiving experience in a brief class on the ground. Here’s where the tandem master will teach you the safety rules, how to monitor your altitude and release your main parachute, all while taking on the responsibility for taking you from airplane to ground safely.
After your brief lesson in “ground school”, you are practically hooked to the hip, by being strapped into a harness with your instructor. The excitement, and maybe a bit of fear, builds as you board the plane. As the plane takes off, your excitement builds and so does your courage and confidence, as the thrill of participating in a sport that you’ve only dreamed of, becomes a true reality. Once you reach ten to fifteen thousand feet, you and your instructor will leap from the plane, and you will free fall for the most intense minute of your life. The Tandem master may deploy a small drogue parachute, which reduces your free fall speed, so that you and the videographer are falling at the same time, so he or she can properly film your jump, if you choose to purchase a video upgrade with your tandem jump. Once you reach a certain altitude the tandem master will release the main parachute, which is equipped to carry the combined weight of two passengers. As you glide to the earth, the tandem master will guide you through the process of making a safe landing. Listen to your instructor and follow his or her instructions carefully, and you will get a real taste of what living on the edge is all about! You will shift from free fall, into a slow descent to the ground.
Take the time to take in the awesome view of the surroundings as you float to the ground. This part of your landing will take between five and seven minutes. If your instructor has trouble releasing the main parachute, have no fear, because the harness is equipped with an Automated Activation device, which releases a reserve parachute, if you are still in free fall below a certain altitude. Although the Tandem jump is the most expensive package, it is the most popular, because it gives first time skydivers the skydiving experience of their dreams, without having to take on the responsibility of making a safe landing. Let us make your first skydiving experience the most rewarding by putting your safety first! Don’t be surprised if all your worries of the day have flown away with the wind, because you’ll forget everything but the skydiving experience itself! If your tandem jump left you wanting to go up in the air again, we can help you take your skydiving experience to even bigger heights! Our friendly and knowledgeable skydiving experts will be happy to answer any questions you have about the tandem jump packages and book your skydiving experience today!
Advanced Skydiving Training Boosts Jumping Abilities
For people who have taken a tandem jump, there is a way to work your way up to a solo jump. In order to become certified with the United States Parachute Association, you must attend a skydiving academy. All tandem masters and skydiving instructors hare USPA certified and licensed to teach you all you need to know about skydiving safety, tips, tricks, and techniques for making a safe landing.
If you want to keep skydiving after your first tandem jump, you can do one of two things: you can either tandem jump again, but as a training jump, or you could move on to Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) training, where the skydiving instructors will take you through the entire training process, from ground school, to jumping in your own harness, with radio and hands on guidance.
Are you a skydiving enthusiast? Do you want to take your skydiving experience to the next level? If this is you, and you’ve taken your first tandem jump, then you’ll love the accelerated free fall training. This is an intense and exhilarating process that covers several steps. If you can prove to your instructors that you have passed each step of the training, then you will be eligible to advance to the solo jump certification. Here is a brief breakdown of each step of AFF training.
This may sound very dull, but before you can jump, you must spend five to six hours in a classroom on the ground, to learn all the safety rules and techniques you’ll need to know, before you take to the sky. Be sure to take lots of notes, because after your day in class, your instructors will put the techniques you learned into practice during the next step of your training.
Your body position is everything!
Although you’ve listened well and taken meticulous notes, all students need to put their classroom training into practice. Here’s where you are equipped with your own skydiving rig, and two instructors will be with you during the next few lessons. This lesson focuses on your body position on the ground, and in your first jump with your instructors, who will guide you both hands on and in your head, through your radio.
In the air you go!
During this third level of training, your instructors will take you up on a plane, and continue working with you on body positioning, and teach you some basic jumping techniques, such as flying straight down, making basic turns, and more. You may look silly in the air, but we’ve all be there at some point in training. Your trainers will guide you via your radio, and give you advice on how to correct any errors after the jump. This is where your confidence gets a major boost, and you may feel like a hotshot after you pass this level.
Working your way up to the solo jump.
The next few levels of training, continue to put into practice what you’ve learned in the last three levels. You’ll also learn how to make turns from 90 degrees, to a full 360 degree turn signaling, and so much more. Your trainers will give you rigorous tests to make sure you’ve learned each step of the AFF training course properly. You and your instructor will determine when you are ready to advance to the next level and climb the training ladder to the solo jump, where you can continue learning even more tricks and techniques, to turn your jump into a show, without losing control and deploying your parachute at the proper altitude.
After your first tandem jump, you may want to take skydiving to the next level, but you don’t feel comfortable enough to advance to the accelerated freefall training. That’s okay, we can sign you up for Tandem progression. Although this training package is much less used, it can still take you through basic skydiving training, to ease you step by step into skydiving school. Before you take to the sky, you’ll spend about an hour in ground school, where you’ll learn how to monitor your altitude, deploy your parachute, and other emergency procedures needed to land back at the drop zone safely.
Your tandem master will give your hands on training in these areas during the first two jumps, on your third and final tandem jump, you will be responsible for putting the techniques you’ve learned, into practice, under the supervision of your instructor. After you have proven to your instructor that you are ready to accelerate to the next level of training, you will transition into skydiving school, for advanced accelerated freefall training.

Our partners offer video upgrades with tandem jumps, accelerated freefall training and tandem progression skydiving packages. Ask the skydiving experts about the availability of video packages. What a great way to show your friends everything from your first jump, all the way up to your solo dive! These videos can be shared on social media outlets, and you can keep the DVD as a great memento of your favorite sport! The top of the line video package is the videographer upgrade. As part of this package, the videographer jumps along with you and your instructor(s), filming the entire jump, from the time you step on the plane, your take off, your rise to the specific altitude, and even the dive itself and the after jump party. The instructor deploys a drogue parachute, so you can freefall at the same speed as the videographer. If this upgrade isn’t in your budget, you can purchase the GoPro package, where the tandem instructor wears a GoPro camera, to film the entire dive for you, during your initial tandem jump, and your tandem progression jumps.
We encourage you to add a video upgrade to your skydiving package, so you can have proof of the skydiving experience that you can’t stop talking about! There’s nothing wrong with showing off your favorite sport, because you never know! You just might give someone the mental boost he or she needs to make his or her own skydiving dreams come true. You can even monitor your own progress through the advanced training program at skydiving school. Sharing your skydiving experience with your friends and family, can give them a glimpse of the thrill you felt while diving out into the great big Kentucky sky! Your video upgrade will show your friends and family what living on the edge is all about through your eyes. All videos are professionally edited by the drop zone videography team, and are recorded in the highest quality possible. Ask our agents to help you choose the video package that is right for you and your budget.
