Tandem skydiving refers to jumping out of a plane with an experienced certified skydiver. This type of skydiving leaves the first-time skydiver with little responsibilities, allowing them to pay attention to what the certified skydiver is doing so they can gain experience themselves or just experience the sky’s atmosphere.
This is the most common jump for first timers. Although you will still go through an instructional course beforehand, you won’t have nearly as much to learn in comparison with AFF. In fact, most of what you will be learning is what you will be experiencing during the adrenaline-rushing jump from the sky, so you’ll know what to expect.
Your safety will be in the hands of your well-experienced skydiving expert who will be safely harnessed to you. He will be responsible for the correct launch out of the plane, the free fall experience, the deploy of the canopy (drogue parachute), the steering of the canopy after it is deployed, and the safe landing. Again, this leaves you with two options: Let the instructor relay to you the correct methods he is using throughout the whole experience or you just enjoy the ride. In fact, a lot of first-timers choose the latter so they can sit back and really enjoy the experience.
With the worries of your safety being in the expert’s hands, you can enjoy the eye-popping speed, the craziness of the wind and the scenery like you have never seen it before. Your first time will probably bring about too much fear and anxiety to think about every aspect of the jump. The good thing is, that fear and anxiety will be replaced with a sense of accomplishment once you land safely.
Facing our fears is one of the most important things we do in our lives. And if anyone can say they can skydive with no fear, they are either crazy or lying. Nevertheless, for the average person, this is an experience that they can take with them for the rest of their lives. Being able to conquer your fears here is like saying I can take on anything. Tandem Skydiving at our Skydiving.com Appleton facility is an adventure that you will never forget.
From the climb up to 14,000 feet, to the descent back to earth that can reach 120 miles per hour, there is nothing like it. Your adrenaline will be pumping, your stress level will be high, you might even want to back out, but our instructors are here to make sure you make the right decision. Skydiving is not only fun, but it can also be therapeutic – like going to the gym – the energy you exert can relieve mass amounts of stress and anxiety.
All those changes in emotions are exactly what your first Tandem skydiving jump can offer. Not only will you see Wisconsin from a different point of view, you might see your life from a different point of view as well. And our hope here at Skydiving.com Appleton is that a new point of view will encourage you to keep jumping, as any skydiver will tell you, each time will get easier, but the adrenaline rush never goes away.
Above all, we offer you a guarantee. The dropzone you jump at meets all safety equipment meets and exceeds all FAA, Basic Safety Requirement (BSR), and other federal and aviation regulations. We also guarantee that your Safety and Training Advisor (S&TA) is not only fun and friendly, but also has the required amount of experience required to be an S&TA.
One of our major goals at Skydiving.com Appleton is to show you the beauty of this experience. We hope you have so much fun that skydiving in tandem is just the start and you become ready to achieve more freedom by taking advanced training to become a solo skydiver one day.
Tandem skydiving may be enough for most people, but for those adventure-seeking adrenaline junkies, there is a lot more to experience in the sky. Skydiving.com Appleton can find you the experience with advanced training classes that best fits your needs and can prepare you to become a United States Parachute Association (USPA) certified skydiver.
As you can imagine, these types of licenses are not easy to obtain, but are worth all of the fun it takes to secure one. Not only will it require you to take in-depth skydiving courses in the classroom, but it also requires a lot of adrenaline rushing jumps out of an airplane. With each course you take, you will get one step closer to being able to be a USPA A-License jumper, which will then allow you to jump completely solo.
Each course will demand a little more out of you by achieving Target Learning Objectives (TLOs). During TLO training, you will perform what you learned in the classroom in real-time with a skydiving instructor (expert). For the most part, as you transition through the classes, your skydiving instructor will spend less and less time with you during the jumps. Each course could demand a few extra jumps out of you before your skydiving instructor decides he or she is comfortable enough to say you can move on to the next level. It’s really all about safety and experience and no matter how fast you learn and how good you get, each course still demands you complete a required amount of jumps before you can advance.
With a USPA A-License, you can travel to any one of the USPA certified skydiving facilities in America and take the leap of a lifetime. And, although we think Skydiving.com Appleton is your best bet, we also believe there are many other places that are beautiful that you might like to visit.
As a substitute to Static Line Progression skydiving training, which tends to take a much longer time to earn an A-License, the Accelerated Free Fall training programs are a much quicker way to get to your skydiving licensing goal. These programs usually consist of eight different levels.
Each student will jump into a free fall, starting with their very first jump at the very first level, but they won’t be alone. At levels 1 and 2, you will jump with two different skydiving instructors, who will employ a technique called “Harness Hold Training”. This technique puts both instructors right next to you on either side, where they will stay until the cord is pulled and the canopy is deployed. During these harness holding free fall lessons, the instructors will be helping you to make several arm motions back to your cord so that you can practice this motion at high speeds and in high winds. They will also be helping you gain body control and the correct form, all while you are monitoring your altitude. When you hit the 5,000- to 6,000-feet mark, you or your instructor will then pull your cord and you will begin your descent back to earth under your canopy. The canopy will be under your control, but your instructor will be close by, and you will have drop zone radio support.
Upon the level 3 training jump, you will receive a little more freedom. Much like levels 1 and 2, your leap from the plane will be the same and you will still be held by at least one instructor who will help you with the same type of deployment motions, body form and stability as before. The difference with the level 3 training jump is that, after some time with the instructor, once he or she feels confident that you can free fall without anyone gripping onto you, the instructor will let you free fall the rest of the way to canopy deployment altitude on your own.
Levels 4, 5, 6, and 7 will allow you to jump out of the plane solo. Yes, an instructor will fly with you or you will possibly deploy with a group of students and some instructors, but this is where you will get your freedom. In these levels, you will work on things like the superman-ish exit of the plane, tricks that include back flips and front flips, disconnecting and reattaching to another skydiver, and much more. These types of activities are designed to make you practice the loss of control and the safe gaining of control before the minimum altitude is reached, when your canopy must be deployed.
In these later levels, an instructor will be close by for your support. If, for some reason, you can’t deploy your canopy, the instructor has a few different options. If reminders with hand gestures don’t work, the instructor can reattach to you to help move your arm in the direction toward the cord. If that doesn’t work, the instructor will pull the cord for you. Not only does the instructor have the authority to pull the cord on a student at any time during a free fall if they feel it’s necessary, the student’s rig is outfitted with an Automatic Activation Device (AAD) that will automatically deploy the main at a low, but safe altitude.
Level 8 is not much more than demonstrating all the principles you learned in levels 1-7. Since this is the last level you have to complete before you are eligible to get your A-License, there is a requisite 25 jumps you must make alongside a skydiving expert. You will also be required to execute two Hop-and-Pop jumps. These jumps are very low-altitude jumps during which you will deploy your canopy the second you jump out of the plane. The reason for these jumps is to simulate emergency protocol. In the event of a plane malfunction, you will have practice how to handle the situation.
When you have met the last level of requirements and your instructors feel confident enough that you are ready to skydive alone, your instructors can sign your certificate and you will be ready to apply for your USPA A-License.
Tandem Progression training is a type of schooling that some people choose to complete to obtain the ability to skydive solo. The reason is simple; some students feel more comfortable starting out their first jumps of advanced training with an instructor attached.
This training starts out with ground schooling, which begins in the classroom, much like the AFF training. After you have received the proper amount of training, you will make two jumps in tandem with your instructor, during which he or she will have complete control of everything that is going on. Even though the instructor will be in control of everything, he will be demonstrating and relaying every movement that they are doing back to you, from how to leap out of the airplane to the free fall, altitude control, pulling the canopy, and landing safely. Paying attention closely during these jumping sessions will ensure you know what to do when it is your turn. The instructor will also be going over proper form, how to lose control and regain control, emergency techniques, and much more.
Your third jump in the Tandem Progression Training course will be your last jump before you enter the AFF training, during which you will no longer be harnessed mechanically to your instructor. This third jump is important because you will be taking over control by using all of the skills you have learned from the ground school and your previous two jumps. You will be expected to use a proper jump technique, maintain proper form, monitor your altitude, lose control and gain control after a few flips and turns, and pull the canopy at the correct altitude.
Once the canopy is pulled, you should be able to guide the instructor and yourself down to the dropzone safely, using radio control whenever necessary. After you have completed these three jumps and feel confident you can move on, you will then begin the AFF training. Most students who have completed this Tandem Progression Training first say they have more confidence moving on to the next level.
