The city of Rockford is strategically placed between Chicago and Galena and was settled in the 1830s, but eventually rose to the significance of ‘city’ status by 1852. Home of Rock River and the Rockford Peaches who were depicted in the motion picture “A League of their Own”, although there were some liberties taken in the making of the movie. Rockford boomed as a city that manufactured various tools and machinery and later became the second-leading city in America in the exporting of furniture.

This is certainly the go-to for any newcomers looking to break into the wonderful world of skydiving. And there are no greater skies to jump through than the gorgeous blue of Rockford, Illinois!

First, how does flying up and beyond 14,000 feet in the air sound, flying hundreds of miles per hour through the wondrous skies. You’ll get the chance to feel the wind whipping through your hair while you wait for your turn, and you and your Tandem-master leap together to fall freely towards the ground.

This is why you’ll want to take a look at our video packages, so that you can relive this moment over, and over again!
There are a few things to keep in mind, for example, in a tandem jump your chute will be pulled a little bit earlier than during a normal solo-jump. The reason for this is that the additional weight of you being connected to a Tandem-master, so two people instead of one, makes it that you reach a higher falling rate much more quickly!
Another difference between a solo-jump and a tandem jump is that your chute will be supplied with a much larger and wider parachute which is called a drogue parachute! This drogue parachute provides you with a much slower fall speed which will allow you to take in the gorgeous landscapes as you drift leisurely downwards to the awaiting earth below. The slower fall will also allow your videographer (if there is one attending the jump) to be able to remain at the same level as you, without a drogue parachute the weight differential would result in you falling twice as fast as the camera man.
The amazing instructors and skydiving experts will be there to make sure every safety precaution is taken and that any questions you might have will be answered. Not only are these employees knowledgeable and friendly, they are loads of fun and will make sure you have a great time with your skydiving experience!
Tandem Skydiving is a great way to build up your experience and feed your skydiving addiction. It is also the perfect path in deciding whether or not you want to pursue an an A License so that you can solo-jump anywhere, anytime!

There are tons of options for you to pursue your USPA (United States Parachute Association) certification! Your trainers are among the best in the field and will be sure to get you where you need to be to acquire your A License in skydiving! The Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) program is the most common and best way to get well on your way to skydiving freedom!
The Tandem Free Fall is usually the first skydiving experience that people undergo, but once you feel that you have had enough of jumping with a Tandem master you can step up your skydiving to the next level! Learn all the tricks of the trade and all the methods and procedures you will need to know to become a skydiving master yourself!

They will make sure you jump through all the hoops and learn every precaution, so that you can get on with your skydiving dreams. Under the supervision of talented instructors you will receive the best training that money can buy, so come join the pros and learn the skill of skydiving with amazing trainers!
Start Your Accelerated Free Fall Training at Rockford Skydiving!
Tandem Free Fall jumps are where you will start, most likely, and once you’ve gotten enough of those under your belt and your appetite grows for something bigger it is is onto the Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) training! An intensive process that will streamline you towards getting your United States Parachute Association (USPA) certification, and skydiving A License!
“Harness Hold Training” is one of the first steps that you will undergo in your AFF training, a task that is very close to solo skydiving, but not quite there yet! You must perform at least three of these jumps before you can move onto the next phase of your training, and is only a hop, skip and a jump away from jumping all by yourself.
In this process you will be leaping from the plane without a Tandem master, but you will have one to two instructors who jump out alongside you. During your descent your trainer, or trainers, will latch onto you by hand-grips as you fall down. During your fall, they will be maintaining eye contact and provide hand communication, to alert you of when it is time to grab a hold of your “pull” and release your chute!
If for whatever reason you miss the signal or don’t open your chute, don’t worry, they will continue to try and communicate to you that it is time to open your chute. Your trainers may even physically put your hand on your pull and again indicate to you to open it before they resort to pulling open your chute for you! Again, do not worry, these expert trainers will be with you every second of your fall to try and help you perform the necessary tasks to prove you can pull your chute on your own.
Even if you don’t open your chute, and they are unable to open it for you (for whatever reason), all training chutes are equipped with an Automatic Activation Device (AAD). This will automatically release your chute when a certain altitude is reached, insuring that even under the most dire of circumstances your parachute will deploy. Every safety precaution is undergone during the training phase!
One of the next steps of the skydiving process, after you’ve proven yourself through the “Harness Hold Training”, is learning to control your movements in a free fall mode. Not only is it crucial to prove that you can control your body’s flight, but you will also have to prove that you can remain calm and composed while falling in a solo jump. It is of the utmost importance to be able to maintain proper control of yourself and show that you have all the necessary abilities to keep yourself controlled and stable.
A ‘release dive’ is another important task that you will have to prove capable of completing. This is a jump that you will make by yourself at lower altitudes, allowing you to fall freely without trainers latching onto you and pulling your latch for you. This is a process that will show that you are able to abandon an aircraft in case of an emergency and be able to handle yourself in a high pressure situation with little time, proving that you have control over yourself and your chute, no matter how high (or low) you jump from the plane.
At this time, if you have been jumping with two instructors, in all likelihood you will be now jumping with only one instructor. The instructor may have you perform an operation called “intentional instability”, putting your body in an “unstable” maneuver, so that you can prove that you can work yourself back to stability. Once you have proven you can make this disorienting maneuver and get yourself out of it, along with proving that you are capable of making all the necessary turns, tilts spins, etc, you will be well on your way to success. The trainer will monitor and grade your ability and let you know when you’ve performed all the tasks appropriately, so that you can move onto further levels of training.
Once you have gone through all the various levels and worked your way all the way to level 8, you will be well on your way to an USPA certification. There will be a total of 25 jumps that you will have to make, along with all the other prerequisites before you can be signed off by a certified instructor. After this you will be eligible for your A License and become a real skydiving champion, able to jump at any certified drop zone in the United States of America!
