Your first experience with skydiving will have you left reeling off of the most thrilling adrenaline rush you will ever experience. Most people want to do it again and again. With skydiving, there is an unparalleled sense of freedom that no other extreme sport can match. It doesn’t get any closer to the feeling of true human flight that this! Most people who want to go skydiving choose not to because they believe that it is unsafe. We are here to tell you that is simply not true. More than 3 million skydiving jumps are successfully completed every year by over 350,00 skydivers. That means that driving is much more dangerous than jumping out of an airplane.
Why choose Tandem Skydiving?
For obvious safety concerns, first time skydivers are urged to choose Tandem Skydiving. This allows you to get up in the air with minimal training and preparation. Solo skydiving requires thorough, extensive training courses and hours of preparation, which our partners offer to those who wish to continue their training. Tandem Skydiving allows you to simply enjoy the experience without worrying about navigating or maneuvering. Your instructor will be strapped into a harness at your back. He or she will be responsible for guiding you safely throughout your flight. All you need to do is have fun! If you’ve booked a video package, then be sure to try to smile at the camera during your freefall. It’ll be a great shot in those Georgia skies!
What is Tandem Skydiving?
A tandem skydiving session is also sometimes called tandem parachuting. A highly trained, certified skydiving instructor is harnessed securely at your back and will help you when you jump from the airplane. He or she will be your navigator during free falling and landing. Leave all of the hard work of piloting and free falling to your instructor. You just need to focus on your freefalling face!
Most states require that the student be 18 years of age of older in order to go skydiving. It is no different in Georgia. A Gift Certificate for an 18th birthday present is a great idea for teenagers who have expressed interest in skydiving.
Tandem skydiving is best for first timers to experience the thrill of freefall. Very little instruction is required for the student to able to go up. This makes tandem skydiving very easy and convenient. Minimal ground training will consist of a short classroom course on safety. The student will also partake in a walk-through about what will happen throughout the experience, including boarding the airplane, jumping from the aircraft, piloting the canopy, and landing. You will also learn how to deploy the parachute, but this will not be necessary during the tandem skydiving experience. This will be the responsibility of your instructor.
Please note that nausea is typical just before and during skydiving, especially for those susceptible to sudden nausea. If you experience nausea during the dive, it is most likely due to nervousness or the swaying motion of the canopy once it’s been deployed. Skydivers who are closer to the upper range of skydiving weight restrictions (250 lbs) are more susceptible to nausea during the jump. After you land, the feeling of queasiness will quickly dissipate. You should return to your normal state relatively quickly. If you think your might feel sick during your jump, you can take anti-nausea over-the-counter medication beforehand.
Many pieces of equipment will be put into use during the tandem skydive. The instructor will pull the drogue release cable just after you exit the airplane. This allows the drogue to capture air, pulling the primary parachute from the container and inflating it. This motion will slow your descent down significantly, ending your freefall and putting you into a relaxing canopy ride. A reserve parachute is connected to the main parachute. Modern tandem skydiving equipment also comes with an automatic activation device. This will instantly deploy if the device senses that the diver and/or instructor is free falling below a specific altitude. Our partners maintain the best skydiving equipment available on the market today. This ensures the safety of our affiliated instructors and students. Our partners take pride in their equipment and safety record.
Continuing Your Training with Advanced Coaching
Skydiving.com Macon partners staff a team of highly skilled, professional skydiving instructors who are all USPA certified. These instructors have decades of combined experience with skydiving and are more than happy to coach you. We want you to be the best you can possibly be. There is no better way to perfect your technique than with the help of these amazing instructors. Beginners who wish to become certified to dive solo will also start with the advanced training program. Check out the accelerated FreeFall Program divided into 7 levels, each stage increasing in skill set. Once you have completed the AFF Program, you will be able to become certified by the USPA.
The United States Parachute Association (USPA) is the regulating body for the country’s skydiving training and credentials. Skydiving licenses vary in intensifying levels starting at basic. “A license” is for the first 25 jumps. Levels go up to “D license” which you will be eligible for after completing 500 jumps. The levels are based on competency and achievement. After you are certified, you will be able to skydive at any location around the world. Every location within our affiliate network is USPA approved. If you are looking to become a skydiving instructor, we can help you there too. A minimum of 300 jumps and 3 hours of free fall time are the requirements to become a professional skydiving instructor. Also, a valid membership with the USPA is a must.
Furthermore, you will need to have a minimum of 3 years of skydiving experience. Proficiency with skydiving equipment, free falls, aircraft, drop zone layouts, canopy flights, and landing are also required. You can enjoy these amazing experiences virtually in your backyard. What are you waiting for? Give us a call to start your Advanced Skydiving Training today!
If you are looking to become a solo skydiver, our partners have the best skydiving school training program in the region. The Accelerated FreeFall Program (AFF) is second to none. In the Accelerated Freefall Program, our partners maintain a full service facility with all the amenities to make your experience with us a pleasurable one. The skydiving school is USPA Certified and is guaranteed to give you the best skydiving adventures. In just a few short weeks, you will learn how to jump solo without any assistance!
Level 1: Your First Solo Skydive
To start, you will learn the basic/beginner skydiving procedures, body positioning, safety precautions, and canopy development and piloting. You will complete your first solo skydive on the first or second day of training depending on the weather and availability of your instructor. This also depends on how energized you feel after your ground classwork. We want you to have a blast. Nothing is fun when you are burnt out. If you need to do your first jump the next day that is absolutely fine.
Your first solo jump will be at 14,000 feet above GA. Don’t worry! You will have two USPA certified, highly trained instructors jumping alongside you to assist with your first experience without a tandem instructor. You will be required to respond to an instructor’s hand signals, check the altimeter, and practice deployment of the parachute before you actually activate it. Once you have deployed your parachute, you will receive the remaining instructions via radio to help you during the descent to the landing zone. Once you’ve touched down safely, your instructor will review the video of your skydive. Satisfaction with your performance means that you will then be ready to move on to the next level of the Accelerated Freefall program!
Level 2: Perfecting Body Position
Next, you will be able to perfect your body positioning during freefall. You will still have two instructors jumping with you; however, one of them may release you to test your stability during freefall. After this quick stability assessment, the instructor will again take hold of you while you get ready to deploy your parachute. After reviewing your video, you will be permitted to move to Level 3 if your instructor is satisfied.
Level 3: Full Release into Freefall
Once you have reached level 3, both of your instructors will release their hold on you during freefall. This is the first time you will be skydiving solo! You will feel the full effects for real this time. The instructors will test your ability to remain stable all on your own. Upon safe landing, they will watch your video to determine if you are ready to move to the next level.
Level 4: Performing 90 Degree Maneuvers
At stage 4, you will have only one instructor with you. You will almost be ready to become certified to skydive solo! Level 4 of the Skydiving School Accelerated Freefall program allows you to practice 90 degree maneuvers. Turning partially to the left and right while in freefall is a difficult task! This technique must be perfected before you can move on to level 5. Once again, you will be ready to move on after your instructor’s assessment.
Level 5: Performing 360 Degree Maneuvers
Level 5 of the training phases will allow you to perfect turning a full 360 degrees in both directions. This is a much harder task than the previous 90 degree turns. Making a full 360 degree turn left and right is difficult, but so much fun once you’ve mastered the technique. Imagine being able to handle a full spin in freefall! Upon completion of this dive, your instructor’s evaluation will determine if you are ready to move to next to last level of advanced training.
Level 6: Advanced Maneuvers
Here comes the most difficult, but also most exciting part of the advanced training process. Mid-air somersaults! You will get to perform the “front loop” in level 6 of your Accelerated Freefall training. This level will teach you how to regain stability after a mid-air flip. You will also learn “tracking,” which is the rapid forward-facing maneuver that creates space between the instructor and you. Your instructor will, once again, check your progress before allowing you to move to the final stage.
Level 7: Combining all of it!
In the final stage of advanced training, you will combine everything you’ve learned so far into one skydive. Once you exit the airplane, you will do a front loop, a 360 degree turn in both directions, and track away from your instructor all during your freefall. If you can do all of this together, you will be certified to skydive solo! Are you excited yet? You should be! There is no greater sense of accomplishment than knowing that you have completed this rigorous training regimen to become a certified solo skydiver. Contact us today to start your AFF Advanced Skydiving Training today!
Tandem Progression is a method of Advanced Skydiving Training that is used in addition and as an alternative to the Accelerated Freefall Program. Tandem Progression simply adds 3 tandem skydiving jumps to the AFF Program for the purpose of allowing the student to become more comfortable with skydiving. We understand that not everyone is ready to jump right into the AFF Program immediately after their first tandem skydiving experience. This way allows for the student to become much more comfortable before committing to jumping next to an an instructor as opposed to in tandem. Once you have completed your 3 tandem jumps, you can easily transition into the AFF Program.
Category A/B Tandem Skydiving
In your first two jumps, you will practice freefall maneuvers, monitoring altitude, and deploying the parachute with the help of your tandem instructor. He or she will also help you perform simulated emergency exercises, as covered in previous ground lessons. This will help you to become more confident if any issues should ever arise while you are skydiving solo. In your third tandem skydive, you will perform freefall maneuvers, monitor your altitude, and deploy your parachute without the help of your instructor. You will also demonstrate emergency procedures, canopy descent strategy, locating the landing zone, determining altitude, and executing a proper landing. All of these steps help to build a more confident student going into the AFF Program.
After you have completed your three tandem skydives, you can move on to the Accelerated FreeFall Program, as mentioned above. Once you have mastered all of the combined techniques, you will become a certified solo skydiver. You can then move on to become a skydiving instructor with more training, or you may continue perfecting your skydiving skills through the advanced coaching programs. You can even learn how to skydive in formations and groups! If you’re ready to start your training, contact us today!
