Brave the skies with a Tandem Skydiving Jump!
Life is about living and challenging yourself to embrace the world you live in, searching for new ways to view and perceive your surroundings. There is no better way to experience the adrenaline rush that is life than by jumping from an aircraft at 14,000 feet. Let Skydiving.com Plainview partners take you there!
Tandem Skydiving is the most exhilarating adventure, from jump to landing. Mere words can barely describe the thrills and breathtaking views you’ll experience while flying through the atmosphere. The skydiving experts will ensure your safety every step of the way so that you can enjoy the rush of the free fall and feel the gentle pull of the breeze as it sweeps into your canopy, while you’re taking in the sights below.
Once the Tandem instructor confirms that you are at least 18 years of age or older, you’ll be ready to begin! After a short safety training that details how to exit the aircraft, performing maneuvers in free fall and locating the canopy pull cord, the instructor will ensure the security of your harness and other equipment as you prepare to board. Get ready — it’s time to fly!
As the aircraft ascends to an appropriate altitude, your instructor will prepare you for the jump, this time ensuring your harnesses are securely connected before opening the door. Feel the rush of the wind sweeping into the cabin as you gaze out into the open sky. In just a moment, your instructor will confirm that you’re ready – sure you are, you’ve never been more ready for this moment! The countdown begins, 3-2-1 — you’re falling through the sky at approximately 120 miles per hour! What a rush! This is everything you’ve been waiting for. After about a minute of free fall, your instructor will pull the canopy cord and, as your parachute opens with a slight tug, pulls you back up for a moment before you begin your descent. The view is spectacular!
By now, your adrenaline is pumping at full speed. You just jumped out of a plane and endured nearly a full minute of free fall through the atmosphere! Now that your parachute is open, you will likely feel the changes in temperature as you float down toward earth’s surface. It will take about eight minutes to reach the ground, where you will be greeted by the loved ones you’ve brought along for your expedition. Hopefully you booked a videographer for your jump. The professional videographer will have jumped before you in order to record your jump, free fall, descent and now the landing!
At touchdown, your Tandem Instructor will likely recommend you bring your legs up to a sitting position so that he/she can maneuver a comfortable landing for both of you. Typically, depending on wind conditions, you may land in a gentle standing position or an equally gentle seated landing.
You did it! You have officially claimed bragging rights in extreme adventure. You have accomplished a feat that not many will have the courage to try, even once — and you’re ready for more!
Skydiving.com Plainview is waiting for you to call. Book yourself a ticket to awesome!
Take to the Skies – Solo
So, you went skydiving one time? Cool! Now life just seems kind of boring in comparison to that day. Maybe you’d like to go skydiving more often. And you definitely want to experience the adrenaline and excitement, unattended. Some things are just better without someone else strapped to your back.
Consider earning your “A License” in skydiving with the best instructors in the state. As you would assume, these instructors are USPA (United States Parachute Association) certified with comprehensive experience in training. You will gain the knowledge and skilled proficiency required to skydive on your own after just 25 sessions with your instructor that will include ground training, safety techniques, and jumping.
Once you have completed the training and get signed off by your instructor, you’ll have attained your “A License,” meaning you can jump solo at any USPA-approved skydiving center, which includes all centers in our affiliate network!
Accelerate your Training – Free Fall style!
It’s time to get in the sky! You’re ready, you know you want to obtain your “A License” and you really want to feel the extreme sensation that jumping solo brings. The most common method of training involves the accelerated free fall. In Accelerated Free Fall training, you will have the advantage of experiencing skydiving, including free fall and pulling your own ripcord, on your first jump!
Don’t worry, you will have attended some ground training first and these certified skydiving training instructors will jump with you. You will be guided through the process of free fall with your instructor(s) holding on to you throughout the free fall event. This is called “Harness Hold Training”. As free free fall brings you to the correct altitude (typically around 6,000 feet above ground level), you will deploy your own parachute. At this point in the progression, your instructor(s) will release their grip on you, fly away and deploy their own canopies. In the rare event that you should experience trouble pulling or releasing your canopy, the instructor(s) will first provide hand signals indicating that you should “pull.” In further instance, your instructor(s) are prepared to assist you to pull the cord on your own, but if you still experience trouble, the instructor will deploy your canopy for you. If it ever appears to the instructor that you are in danger, he/she will pull your canopy cord.
You’re getting the hang of this already! After a few jumps proving your ability to deploy your own parachute, your training will advance further and you’ll have the opportunity to learn basic flying skills and how to maneuver in free fall without assistance. Keep in mind that your instructor(s) will remain close by during free fall to assist in safety and training, but you will be released and entirely responsible for deploying your own canopy at the proper altitude. Again, in the event that you should experience trouble in free fall, your equipment is rigged with an Automatic Activation Device (ADD). This is a reserve parachute that will activate if you pass the activation altitude at free fall speeds. Of course, this is extremely rare, as your instructor(s) will be nearby, but this extra level of protection ensures your safety in a training atmosphere.
Now you’ve got the free fall and the canopy deployment mastered. The next series of training will involve TLOs, or Targeted Learning Objectives, including communication during free fall, aerial maneuvers and all the skills needed to become a licensed jumper!
Ready, Set, Jump! – Skydiving.com Plainview wants you to take your skydiving experience to the next level with Accelerated Free Fall Training.
Takin’ it Slow – Tandem Progression Training
We’ll start with Ground School. Here, you will be provided with material based around the curriculum of emergency procedures, equipment functions, free fall techniques, canopy control and emergency procedures. This course will give you everything you need to make your first few Tandem jumps, the next step in this level of training.
You will complete a total of three Tandem jumps with a certified instructor, which will allow you to gain more hands on instruction. During the first two jumps, you will reinforce your knowledge of everything you have learned in Ground School, including simulated emergency procedures and monitoring your altitude. Upon the third jump, while still attached to your instructor, you will perform all the necessary functions of free fall, monitoring your altitude and deploying your parachute.
Finally, through a series of Accelerated Free Fall jumps, you will learn to exit the aircraft with your instructor(s) holding on to you, but no longer attached to you. After your ground training and Tandem jumps, you should be getting a little more comfortable with this.

You are booking a skydiving adventure! But wait — this is, like, the most awesome thing you will ever do! You cannot forget to schedule a videographer for your event.

You could save a few bucks if you’re not too interested in the filming perspective. GoPro videos are also available. This option offers a close-up perspective of your jump and descent, whereupon your Tandem Master will wear a GoPro video camera, filming throughout.

Make sure you schedule a video package for your big day. It’s a sure way to captivate friends and family, proving once-and-for-all how adventurous and courageous you are! You can also watch the video in preparation for your next jump. They can catch that, too, if you want! You can purchase video packages for Tandem Skydiving, Accelerated Free Fall and Tandem Progression Training Skydives.
Regardless of your reasoning for wanting to capture this exciting event in your life, your videographers will provide you with an enthralling video to document your experience. Whenever you get bored or you’re looking for something fun to do, pull out your skydiving video and allow yourself to be swept back to the day that changed your life.
