Jump into the Extreme Sport of Skydiving the Safe Way with a Tandem Jump!
The extreme sport of skydiving can be an intimidating sport to get into. From flying up 14,000 feet into the blue sky, to the swift descent as you let gravity take hold and hurtle you down to the ground. Although skydiving is definitely not for the faint of heart, it is a sport that begs to be tried. So, where is the middle ground for those who are brave enough to give it a try? The answer: Tandem Skydiving.
This style of skydiving attaches a trainer to each beginner skydiver. As you free fall back to Earth, new skydivers are able to focus entirely on the experience from start to finish, thanks to the skydiving expert at their back. A trained professional skydiver knows, for example, when to pull the parachute cord. By placing this responsibility squarely on the expert’s shoulders, a great deal of the anxiety and worry of the novice skydiver is alleviated.
With this major aspect of the skydive covered, you can focus on enjoying the entire experience. Ascend into the clouds with your fellow skydivers. A group setting within the aircraft increases hype. Especially with skydiving experts guiding you! When the door to the aircraft finally swings open, you will know that the drop zone is close by. Peer out into the open air and take in the glorious landscape as it spreads out beneath you. You may see Clearwater, Old Tampa Bay and the coastline if the weather conditions are right.
At this point in the dive, you will already be connected to your Tandem Master. This expert will guide you to the edge of the airplane and show you the best way to take that initial leap. Although screaming is optional, be aware that this exhilarating sport may include a bug or two on the way down. As gravity takes hold, you will begin to pick up speed.
The faster you accelerate, the greater the zoom in action of the landscape below will appear. During these moments, all of the stress and woes of daily life will simply melt away. Adrenaline will kick in and the rush of the fact that you are actually skydiving will set in. Congratulations on making your first jump!
But, the journey is not over yet! Once you have entered an elevation that is a bit closer to Earth, your trained expert will open the parachute. This will initiate the canopy stage of your skydiving adventure. If you are going to faint, this is the portion of the dive that blacking out typically occurs and it rarely happens.
On average, this portion of your skydive will last approximately seven minutes. The breeze will gently guide the parachute while your designated trainer will adjust the parachute accordingly. The skydiving expert will maneuver the parachute into the landing zone. Your Tandem Skydiving coach will do their best to make sure that the landing is a safe one. Now, that the skydive is over, feel free to celebrate your first skydive however you see fit; once you are untethered from your trainer.
If you have ordered a video package, a videographer will be recording this celebration on the ground. This videographer will make the jump with you. The video will begin before you enter the aircraft with a pre-flight interview. Then, the videographer will exit the aircraft right before you jump and capture all of those priceless moments you may have missed during the dive.
In order to Tandem Skydive, you must be at least 18 years of age and weigh less than 225 pounds. All of the skydiving experts who are designated to assist you on your Tandem Jump hold a master parachute license that is federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved. Each Tandem skydiving suit is equipped with an Automatic Activation Device (AAD) that will release the parachute if the free fall speed continues beyond a certain elevation. The Tandem gear is specifically designed to accommodate two people as they enjoy a skydive together.
To get the most out of St. Petersburg, view things from high above. To experience all that St. Petersburg has to offer, seek a thrilling skydiving adventure. This wonderful addition to your vacation itinerary or weekend getaway is the perfect way to unwind and focus on an exhilarating once-in-a-lifetime experience. Reserving your very own Tandem Skydive is the best way to enhance your leisure options and enjoy the blue sky above. Be sure to request a video package when calling to reserve your entry into the exciting world of skydiving!
Take Things to the Limit with Advanced Skydiving Courses
After the first skydive, the excitement and thrill of the experience may have left a lasting impression on you. Now, all you can think about is how to advance beyond the beginner level. We want to help you level up to pro and earn your very own United States Parachute Association, or USPA, license. Receiving this certification is proof that you know all of the ins and outs of parachuting. The license provides validation to everyone and shows that you know how to dive on your own and live to brag about it!
Jump into Intermediate Skydiving and Beyond
Here at Skydiving.com St. Petersburg, we know what it takes to get you there. All the skydiving courses we would recommend are designed with you in mind. If you prefer the safety of a trainer remaining tethered to you, we have you covered. For those who are ready to start free falling solo quickly, your certified skydivers are prepared to assist your development. All certified instructors have jumped over five hundred times and have proven their merit as skydiving gurus. They also bring the skydiving hype and encouragement you need to succeed.
When you are ready to get into the intermediate level, pick one of the courses below. Each course offers you a different level of comfort. Rest assured that regardless of which route you decide on, our St. Petersburg Skydiving representatives will help you earn the right to dive solo with an FAA approved certification in any way they can. These certifications can be used at all qualified Skydiving.com affiliate locations across the country.
The Accelerated Free Fall course is the most popular way to earn your USPA License. The reason? This course takes things from 0 to 100 very quickly. Certified instructors streamline what there is to know and safely escort you through the training tiers.
Rather than be directly connected to your skydiving trainer during the jump, you are only connected by a hand to harness connection. Your skydiving expert will hold onto you as you jump out of the aircraft and make your descent. It is likely that more than one trainer will be diving with you as an added safety precaution.
By being untethered, you are making your way toward a solo dive. This is due to the fact that you no longer have a skydiving trainer at your back. The feeling of free falling without being attached to an instructor can be a bit intimidating at first. After all, when will you know to pull the cord? Fortunately, your AFF instructor that is holding your harness will let you know! They will hold onto you and signal when it is time to pull the cord.
If the experience is too overwhelming for you, the trainer will place your hand on the pull cord. They will signal you with a pulling motion to further alert you. During this time, the ground speeding toward you may become mesmerizing. We want to make sure that you are able to safely land despite this. Which is why, if you are unable to pull your cord at this time, the skydiving trainer will pull the parachute cord for you.
Once your parachute is open, the skydiving expert will release your harness before opening their own parachute. During the descent, if our master parachute expert feels that you are in danger or are unable to enter the canopy stage of your free fall, they will open the parachute for you. There is an extra cord on the back of your skydiving gear for such an emergency.
As you advance through the tiers, you will be introduced to new challenges and collect new skydiving skills. These are referred to as Targeted Learning Objectives or TLOs. Each skydiving student who desires to one day become a professional skydiver will need to learn each TLO before advancing to the next level. A few of these aerial maneuvers include flips, forward movements, and turns.
Trainers will encourage students to perform these moves in order to assess where the student needs to improve on future jumps. By being able to view the student from a distance, skydiving experts can give appropriate advice while on the ground. This will help the student learn how to handle an emergency, should one occur on their solo dives. Skydiving experts will also advise students to tumble out of control.
Although this seems dangerous, if students force themselves into this type of situation under supervision, a skydiving trainer can aid them with the emergency properly. This is also one of the TLOs that must be achieved before moving on to the advanced levels. Students will attend at least five dives during the Accelerated Free Fall Course. One such practice includes a hop n pop. To do this, students will open their parachute immediately after exiting the aircraft. Doing so prepares students for the unforeseen event of an aircraft malfunctioning. Upon completing this course, students will earn their USPA License and start their solo free falls across the United States.
For those who wish to have a skydiving expert at their back, we recommend this advanced course just for you! Although this is the less popular skydiving course, do not let it deter you from achieving your skydiving dreams. During the initial courses, a skydiving trainer will remain tethered to you. A certified instructor will coach you on the ground and let you grow accustomed to the timing of the free fall. This will help you grow confident in your ability to pull your own parachute cord later on.
After a few skydives in this manner, your instructor will speak with you about your level of comfort. When you are ready to take the next step, you will begin AFF training. You will be able to earn your USPA License at the conclusion of this course. Once you feel comfortable enough to become untethered and move up to harness holding, that very same expert will train you on how to perform each TLO. Moving up through the tiers at this point is the same as AFF. With this comfortable skydiving course available to you, the dream of skydiving solo can easily be achieved this year!

Match up each of the still frames you mentally took during the dive with a carbon copy of your exhilarating experience.

When reserving your skydiving package, be sure to mention that you are interested in a video package. Dropzones offer these services for the Tandem Skydive, Accelerated Free Fall and Tandem Progression jumps. Each video is recorded in high quality, easy to share format. All of the videographers are experts in both skydiving and filming.
The story of your dive will start on the ground with a pre-flight interview. Video will continue to be filmed as you ascend 14,000 feet into the air. While you are gasping in awe as the door to the aircraft opens, the videographer will be capturing it on film. The videographer will jump out of the plane before you.
This will guarantee that they will be able to capture the moment you jump out of the aircraft. While you are zooming towards the ground, the video expert will be recording the priceless expressions and glorious Florida coastlines in the background. The videographer will film the entire canopy stage from below. The perspective offered from this vantage point will place you firmly into the focus of the skydiving adventure. Both you and your parachute will be in view as you draw nearer to the ground. Upon landing, feel free to celebrate and don’t be camera shy! Including this in your skydiving adventure will highlight your dilated pupils which signify the excitement you are feeling.
There is a GoPro as a video option as well. Due to these devices being mounted onto the helmets of the skydiving trainer, however, they offer a limited view of the action and lack the professional touch of a videographer. To make up for this, GoPros provide a close up of the action and are rather affordable. Regardless of which service you opt for, all footage will be edited together in the drop zone.
These priceless versions of your skydive can be shared throughout the ages with family, friends or that special someone. Be the highlight of a party by highlighting the thrilling play-by-play of your brave descent through the clouds.
