Witnessing Arkansas while freefalling is an exhilarating and mesmerizing experience. Due to the captivating nature of this adventure, our partners provide the Tandem Skydive. This option is the easiest and safest way to jump into the exciting world of skydiving. Your tandem adventure beings with pre-flight safety instructions that usually last approximately 25-30 minutes. The lengthy duration of this important conversation may delay the expected start time of the skydiving adventure. To avoid this, we recommend arriving at the dropzone earlier than your scheduled jump time.
After the instructors go over the mandatory safety precautions, you will be properly informed and ready to suit up! Once you are adorned with the proper attire, you will board an airplane with other skydivers and your Little Rock Trainer. The aircraft will ascend to an altitude of approximately 14,000 feet within a matter of minutes. Upon nearing jump elevation, the airplane’s door will be opened, allowing you and your instructor to begin the thrilling act of freefall!
During your descent, enjoy the gorgeous view and feel free to fully submerse yourself in the experience! Your Jumpmaster has your back throughout the entire 60 second plunge. Rest assured that as the ground rushes toward you, your trainer will know when to begin the seven minute canopy phase. This portion of the tandem package provides a unique view that most non-skydivers will never see. At the conclusion of this phase, your instructor will assure that your entrance into the dropzone is as perfect as possible. Upon landing, you have officially earned skydiving bragging rights!
If you’re interested in taking skydiving to the next level, it’s time to acquire your skydiving certificate! Currently, the preferred way to start leveling up, is through an Accelerated Freefall, or AFF program. Our partner’s Accelerated Freefall instruction course educates you on of the skill levels required to make your first solo jump.
By joining the Integrated Student Program, you are signing up to take an instructional course created by the United States Parachute Association, or USPA. This popular procedure is used by our partners as well as many other partnering skydiving schools. The USPA Integrated Student Program sets Targeted Learning Objectives, or TLO’s, for each of the seven instructional levels. Every level’s TLO’s must be performed by the beginner before they may advance to the next stage. Throughout levels one through seven, a certified skydiving instructor, (or multiple coaches), must accompany the student during each dive.
Upon completing level seven, the student is ready almost ready to skydive solo. The next phase requires students to dive with a jumpmaster at least 25 more times before getting their A License requirements ratified by an accredited coach. Following this common procedure, the student performs their A License Check Dive, and becomes a certified skydiver! This USPA license will validate your skydiving skill-set and allow you to show off your skydiving know how at other USPA member dropzones!
Accelerated Free Fall Training
The Accelerated Free Fall instructional course starts with a couple of coaches jumping with the beginner for the first 3 dives. This beginning period trains the student physically and mentally for future solo jumps. During these initial free falls, coaches who are diving with the student will not be strapped to them. Instead, the student’s harnesses are grasped until they deploy their chute at the appropriate height. This practice or methodology is frequently referred to as Harness Hold Training. Skydiving in this manner differs from the Tandem Skydive, due to the students ability to deploy their own parachute and their almost complete disconnection from their instructors.
Students in the AFF program are trained to deploy their main canopy when they start to reach the distance of 5,000 feet from the ground. If the trainee has trouble releasing their parachute, our coaches will first use hand signals to remind the student to “Pull.” As they continue their descent, if the student is still having issues with their parachute, the Instructors will aid their student by physically placing the trainee’s hand onto the pilot chute release. If the parachute remains undeployed, the instructor will manually deploy the canopy for the student. Furthermore, the instructor has the right to pull the student’s main canopy at any time if the student appears to be at risk. “Pull” handles are positioned on every student’s gear, to provide additional access for instructors, in case of emergency.
Being able to release their parachute on time is crucial for a student to learn before advancing further. This is because on release skydives there is a chance that an instructor may not be able to dock and assist at pull time. Accelerated Free Fall participants have a hard deck that allows them to deploy their own parachute and protect themselves from crashing into the earth below. If they have not been able to deploy their parachute with the hard deck activation, the student’s rig is outfitted with a backup Automatic Activation Device, or AAD. This will deploy the reserve chute if the student passes the activation altitude at freefall speeds. Although it is very rare that a student will be in need of the AAD, this final level of precaution diligently protects the student in an emergency.
Trainees will develop proper flying and landing skills as they progress through each Accelerated Free Fall level. Initially, instructors will have the opportunity to use hand signals to guide and correct the student’s body position during the fall. Subsequent guidance to correct their form after exiting the aircraft will ensure a comprehensive building of the proper body mechanics.
The majority of the first few levels require a student to be paired with an instructor for one on one training. This teaching style consists of illustrated freefall positions, turns, and flips. In addition, the student will learn how to regain their balance during instability by correctly adjusting their body movements. All students will be required to perform this useful knowledge during their airborne flights with a trainer.
After completing all Targeted Learning Objectives, the instructor will then confirm that all of the requirements for advancement have been met. Our partners have a dedicated group of aerial instructors, as well as dropzone personnel, who maintain radio contact with the trainee as they soar through the air. Should a radio malfunction occur, however, it is essential that the skydiver knows the vital skills of flying under a canopy. Before officially graduating from the program, each trainee is given a USPA application and are encouraged to join prior to certification.

At the beginning of a tandem skydive, there will be an instruction period of approximately 25-30 minutes. These instructions will help ensure that each skydiver fully understands the proper mechanics involved during their skydive over Little Rock. Proceeding the training class, every jumper will begin suiting up and start preparing to board the aircraft. After take-off, the plane will ascend to about 14,000 feet in a matter of minutes, where everyone’s heart will begin racing with anticipation. By the time the door swings open, exposing the vast airspace and Arkansas thousands of feet below, each jumper will be filled to the brim with adrenaline.
As each member bravely succeeds in their goal of jumping out of the aircraft, skydiving trainers will be right next to every jumper.
