If you’re looking for a skydiving experience that has you enjoying all of the fun with none of the work, then the Tandem skydiving packages are calling your name! This dynamic experience package gifts you all the fun and the freedom which you experience when skydiving, without the need to worry about any details. The logistical aspects of your skydive are handled by professionals! Our affiliate certified experts are trained and tested, and can promise you uncompromising safety for the entirety of your visit. Come experience Tandem skydiving to learn the true definition of hassle-free excitement!
Perfect for first-time skydivers, premium-grade Tandem skydiving at Skydiving.com Chicago partner locations allows you to dive tandem to, but not in the least inhibited by, a trained skydiving expert. He or she will answer any and all of your questions, dispel any nerves, skydive beside you, and celebrate with you after your skydive is complete! From classroom preparation to the completion of your jump, your personal instructor makes both the quality of your visit and the security of your experience his or her utmost priority. You’ll be amazed how simple skydiving becomes when you have a dedicated instructor to streamline your preparation!
You will first be introduced to your instructor upon your arrival at the dropzone. At that time, he or she will answer any of your initial questions, and may even assist in guiding you through your short, pre-dive information session! Once your session is completed and you are well aware of his duties and your own, it’s off to receive your skydiving harness!
As your instructor helps you into the secure harness and explains its safety features, feel free to snap a picture; it’s a great moment to remember! Your instructor will also point out the four points of attachment which, during Tandem skydiving, will fasten your body to his: two clasps at the shoulders, and two more at the hips. These attachments will allow you to skydive side-by-side with a verified expert, while the freedom of your dive is not compromised in the least by their presence.
After introductions are completed, you and your instructor will walk together to the airplane, where you will meet the eager faces of other skydivers! Seated next to your instructor, you will briefly discuss, as the airplane reaches optimum skydive height, what you can expect at 14,000 feet. A few minutes before you are to jump, your instructor will shuffle toward you, clipping his harness to yours, and thoroughly check all points of contact for their security.
Before you know it, the airplane door is open! You can see the clear Illinois sky waiting for you to join in the adventure. At that moment, whatever inhibition you’re experiencing will be instantly overrun by the bliss of adrenaline. After receiving clearance from the pilot and ensuring you are prepared, your instructor will work his way to the edge of the plane. And suddenly, you’re in the air, and you’re skydiving!
The feeling is unparalleled: the rush of the air past your face, the adrenaline coursing through your excited veins, the elation of it all. You’ll find yourself wallowing in adrenaline and energy! During your 45-60 seconds of free fall, when you will approach terminal velocity, you have only a single obligation: enjoy each and every moment of your experience! These are the moments you live for.
Once you and your instructor have reached an altitude of roughly 5,500 feet, you will experience a quick decrease in your ascent, as your parachute is deployed. Your instructor may even allow you the opportunity to pull the ripcord! As you float gently to the earth beneath your extended canopy, make sure you take in all of the sights beneath your feet! The slowly approaching Illinois backdrop will be well worth your attention, we promise.
At this point, feel free to converse with your instructor! Ask him or her to point out local landmarks on the ground. Or, make awe your priority, and marvel at the contour of the Illinois landscape. Your instructor may offer you the opportunity to pilot the parachute’s directional movement, as he or she teaches you the basics in canopy-controlled descent.
Once your feet are near the ground, your instructor will remind you of the landing tactics with which you first became familiar during ground school. Just like that, you’ve landed safely on welcoming soil, and it’s time to bust out your best post-landing dance move! When you skydive Tandem, let us handle the logistics. Your job? Experience the joy of the free fall!

If you’re ready to take the next step in your skydiving career, then the unparalleled advanced skydiving training offered is yours for the taking. Take advantage of the best instruction around, from extensively trained Skydiving.com partner professionals who seek to make you proficient in the art of free fall! 14,000 feet only gets better when you allow us the privilege of training you in the practice of advanced skydiving!
The shortest distance between you and skydiving proficiency is Accelerated Free Fall (AFF). Offered in a wide variety of options, AFF combines the thrill of leaping from an airplane into the waiting arms of adrenaline, via an easy learning curve which precedes your certification. Accelerated Free Fall courses aim to make you the master of the sky, on your way to receiving your A License, as a recognized USPA solo skydiver!
This intensive course is completed with the specific directive of earning your USPA solo skydiving certification. Instructors work out an instructional pace that best suits your individual preferences, making for an experience unique in both excitement and education. You will experience the same thrill you first found in the skies, with a more intensive approach toward your education and progression as a budding skydiver.
The AFF packages allow you the opportunity to make your first few educational skydives, after brief classroom sessions, under the guidance of multiple instructors. During your first two dives, you will exit the airplane under the direction of those instructors, and will perform a series of rudimentary maneuvers in the air, as you take your first few steps toward controlling your descent. Your trained instructors will each dive with a grip on your harness, allowing you the freedom to practice the art of skydiving and the security to rely on their experience.
Once you reach an altitude conducive to canopy-assisted descent, your parachute will be deployed, and your instructors will relinquish their grip on your pack, allowing you the freedom to descend from that point unassisted, landing under their distanced instruction. During each dive, your instructors will communicate with you using a series of easy hand gestures. Selective dives may also employ the use of two-way radios, to facilitate easier communication.
Your subsequent jumps will allow you the opportunity to build upon your fast-learned skydiving talents. Instructors will maintain a grip on your harness, and will teach you various safety measures, followed by increasingly advanced skydiving techniques, including all manners of managed free fall, as well as the most effective means of piloting your canopy once it is deployed. During these intermediate dives, you will be released by your instructor at a predetermined moment during your dive, allowing you to practice in-air maneuvers under the watch, but not immediate control, of skydiving experts.
Advanced jumps follow, during which your instructors will perfect your body control, and teach you various other in-air maneuvers, including turns and exciting flips! At this point, you will most likely be allowed by your instructor to self-supervise, meaning that for the most, if not all, of the remaining experience, you will practice skydiving techniques independent of their immediate grasp.
Graduation from the Accelerated Free Fall program is determined by your instructor, after which time you need only complete the necessary remaining dives between you and the 25 jumps necessary for your USPA solo skydiving certification!
Accelerated Free Fall is the quickest means by which you obtain your clearance to dive solo, via your A License. As always, instructors will work at a pace you approve, and will cater to your specifications, creating for you a personalized study program where the skies are your classroom. Skydiving sessions augmented by educational sessions are meant to prepare you for solo skydives nationwide, during which time your discretion is the only thing that separates you from the adrenaline of the skies! Let us make your AFF training a short distance between you and skydiving freedom!
Looking to take your next step as a skydiver? Searching for a learning method that allows you to dictate the pace of instruction? Find all that and more with Tandem Progression sessions, your ticket toward earning your USPA solo skydiving certification at a pace of learning which best suits your individuality. Classroom sessions will bolster your learning process in the skies.
Three basic jumps begin your training, during which time you will perform generalized in-air movements, as designated and encouraged by your trained skydiving.com instructor. After demonstrated proficiency in these Category A/B aspects, you will progress to Category C dives, where you will master in-air maneuverability, learn technique adjustment, and practice canopy control during descent.
During two Category D jumps, you will demonstrate comfortability during free fall by performing 90, 180, and 360-degree spins, and will perfect your descent control and parachute tactics.
You’re ready for Category E jumps! Many students profess that this stage of the Tandem Progression training is their favorite, as you learn to master spins, flips and dives you once only dreamed of! After mastery of these skydiving aspects, you’ve completed your Tandem Progression training!
