Then, your expert instructor, securely attached to your back, deploys the parachute, and with a thud and a tug, you are suddenly sailing blissfully above the Mojave National Preserve, knowing immediately why it’s considered an American treasure. All you feel now is awe and a desire to have three or four more sets of eyeballs to take in the stunning scenery. Your instructor guides you into the landing zone and you hit the ground, in chest-thumping pride and awe-stuck wonder.

Mojave Desert: Pure Beauty
Always wanted to experience the rush and thrills of skydiving, but were waiting for the perfect opportunity? Look no further – Skydiving.com Mojave Desert partners offer an unparalleled experience, combining the unencumbered joys of skydiving with the national treasure that is the Mojave National Preserve. Nowhere else will your skydiving experience be as rewarding than by sailing through the southern California sky taking in all the sights: the shimmering desert sands, the dunes, the nearby mountain ranges and volcanic formations, and, of course, the tiny specs of the world-famous Joshua trees. It’s the perfect combination. And with the desert receiving less than six inches of rain a year, chances are nothing is going to rain on your parade on this perfect day. And aside from your epic jump, the Mojave National Preserve offers even more experiences you’ll never forget.
Occupying a little less than 50,000 square miles, primarily in Southern California and Nevada, the preserve offers a variety of unique sights and experiences. Take a hike and visit the Cima Dome, an impressive and nearly symmetrical granite bubble rising 1,500 feet above a volcanic field and covered in Joshua trees.
Better yet, you’ve already made your mark in the sky above the preserve; why not go underground, too? You can visit The Lava Tube, located right in the heart of the preserve. Here, cavers of all skill levels can experience the awe of walking through an old lava tube. But there’s even more; this lava tube has a unique and surreal feature of being perfectly punctuated by a shaft, allowing heavenly light to stream into the center of the cave year-round. Or, if the subterranean world is not your thing, you can visit the Kelso Dunes, which are nearly 45 square miles of wind-shaped dunes, cinder cone lava beds, abandoned mines, or any of the surrounding mountains.
For the history buffs, you can also travel by four-wheel drive the 138-mile Mojave Road. Once a wagon trail for American pioneers on their perilous journey to California, the road remains virtually unchanged, making it an adventure through time. It meanders from watering hole to watering hole just as it did in the post-Civil War days, passing ghost towns and abandoned military outposts.
Take the Leap and Call Skydiving.Com Mojave Desert Today!
Jump in the Front Seat with Tandem Skydiving
The plane door opens, and your friendly instructor attached to your back gives you the thumbs up. With a jolt of adrenaline, you move to the open doors take a brief look at the majestic beauty of the Mojave Desert, and then you jump into an experience unlike anything you’ve ever felt before. For a brief, flickering moment, you wish you could pat yourself on the back – though you can’t of course, especially since your expert instructor is directly on it – for taking the chance and making the call to book this incredible experience. So instead, you scream with delight and try to take in all the timeless beauty of southern California beneath you.
Your expert instructor gently glides you into the landing zone. Your feet hit the ground and you get an overwhelming sense of pride and joy at what you just did. And the best part is that with a video package, you’ll have the video to watch over and over again, not to mention show off to your amazed friends. Sound like the adventure of a lifetime? It is, and you can do it, too. With our partner’s expert and friendly instructors, skydiving has never been easier or safer. The hardest part is making the call to book your trip.
The rest is easy. On the day of your first tandem skydive, you arrive at the airfield and meet your instructor and fellow jumpers. The next few hours are spent on the ground getting fitted for your ultra-chic dive kit and goggles and going through basic training on everything from equipment, to body positioning, to emergency procedures. But in tandem diving, you are literally wearing your expert instructor as a backpack. This is a highly experienced individual who is responsible for your safety and does almost all the work. All you have to do is enjoy the ride and feel the wind. And then grab that video to watch it all over again.
Also, here’s our little secret: although friends and family will watch wide-eyed with amazement at your bravery, it’s really quite safe. According to the United States Parachute Association, skydiving is the safest it’s ever been. That’s thanks in part to the institution of rigorous standards for instructors. So that friendly man or woman riding on your back? They’ve got some serious experience.
The Federal Aviation Administration requires all instructors have at least:
- Three years of skydiving experience and a minimum of 500 jumps.
- A master parachute license from an FAA-approved organization
They also need to pass a certification course from the manufacturer of the parachute that will be used in the jump AND pass an FAA medical exam.
Then, there’s the equipment. Tandem jumping requires a larger-than-usual parachute, and the FAA requires your instructor to carry both a main and a reserve parachute. Additionally, these packs are equipped with an automatic activation device designed to deploy the parachute in the event the divers reach a certain altitude while still at freefall speeds.
In addition, even though some friends or co-workers will call you crazy for jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, according to statistics from the National Safety Council, that co-worker will have a far greater chance of cashing in their chips while getting into an automobile accident driving to their BINGO game (1 in 113) than you will jumping out of a plane (roughly 1 in 100,000). But we don’t suggest you mention those stats when people are going crazy watching your skydiving video.
Great Expectations with Skydiving.com Mojave Desert
To begin with, you can expect an utterly incredible day that you won’t soon forget. And in the unlikely event you do, you’ll have the video to replay over and over again. You will arrive at the airfield in the morning and be introduced to your friendly instructor who will be your BFF for the day. You will get fitted for your skydiving suit and goggles, and you will go through training exercises that will teach you:
- How to properly exit the airplane
- How to maneuver your body in free fall
- How to deploy the main parachute, which is your instructor’s job on the tandem dive, but it’s still an important skill to learn
- How to spot trouble and go through emergency procedures.
How to look epically cool for the camera is entirely up to you.
The main requirement is a great attitude and the intestinal fortitude to toss yourself out of an airplane at more than 10,000 feet. The rest is just details, but in the United States, you are required to be at least 18 years old with a valid ID. Many experts recommend you arrive on jump day refreshed and hydrated, so maybe skipping the Rave party across the street is a good idea the night before your jump. Skydiving takes some strength and energy as well, so it is recommended you eat a solid breakfast. Also, please wear proper attire – no flip flops or open-toed shoes.
Beyond that, show up prepared for the most exciting day of your life. The pros will take care of the rest.
Taking Skydiving Up A Notch with the Accelerated Freefall
Want to experience the freedom of a skydive without an instructor on your back or holding your harness? Our partners offer a pair of course options designed to take your skydiving to the next level. These expert instructors will teach you all the skills necessary to have you experiencing the joy of solo freefall in no time. Depending on your personal skill level and preferences, we can set you up with the perfect course for you.
Accelerated Freefall is an extremely popular course because, well, it gets you jumping and free falling solo faster (not to mention doing aerial acrobatics for that look cool on camera). This option will have you jumping with instructors holding your harness as you progress through various skills, working towards the jump where they let go of you and and you’re on your own.
If you’d prefer a more gradual pace or like the idea of being physically attached to your instructor for the first few jumps, the Tandem Progression program is perfect. During this course, your instructor will be attached via harness to your back for the first few jumps. During your jumps, he or she will be on your back, teaching you skills and techniques on a more gradual basis. Once comfortable, you will transition to the Accelerated Free Fall method. Both courses aim at having you experience the thrills of solo freefall, flips, and maneuvers, as well as solo landing as quickly as possible.
Both courses also put you well on your way to completing the requirements necessary to become a certified Unites States Parachute Association skydiver, which allows you to jump solo at any USPA-approved skydiving center. If you’re unsure which course is best for you, call Skydiving.com.
Go Solo Faster with Accelerated Freefall
So you’ve got the skydiving bug and you won’t rest until you’re skydiving on your own, unencumbered by attached instructors. We know the feeling. The best solution is the Accelerated Freefall course. It provides the quickest path to experiencing solo freefall and all the thrills and freedom that go along with it.
More advanced and faster-paced than the Tandem Progression course, AFF students will be jumping in their own parachute kit from the very start – no backpack instructors to wear here. Instead, a pair of instructors will jump with you for the first three jumps, physically holding your parachute harness and giving you real-time instructions on the way down using hand signals. Don’t worry, we go over all the signals and communication techniques on the ground before the jump. In fact, that’s only one facet of all the training you will receive on the ground as part of this course. During this course, you will learn the following:
- Equipment basics
- Emergency recognition and procedures
- Proper canopy deployment procedures
- Proper body positioning and free fall techniques
You’ll also be trained on a variety of other topics all aimed at preparing you for the ultimate goal: your first solo freefall.
During your first three jumps, your instructors will be holding your harness while you work on skills like body positioning, altitude monitoring, tracking, and proper parachute deployment. If you run into trouble at any point, instructors are right there to assist you – there are even extra pull tabs on your parachute should they need to assist in deployment. Additionally, all student parachutes are equipped with an automatic activation device that will fire the reserve parachute should you still be in freefall at a certain altitude.
Once you’ve proven you can handle the basic skills and land on your own, instructors will begin doing so-called “release” dives, which, as you’ve probably guessed, involve your instructors releasing hold of your harness at a certain point in the jump, allowing you to skydive on your own. Don’t worry, they’ll be close by should you need them.
Once you’ve mastered those skills, your confidence is starting to grow and you’re ready for some real fun – aerial maneuvers. You’ll start doing flips, 180s, 360s, barrel rolls, all that fun stuff. And although you’ll be showing off and having a blast, these maneuvers also have a purpose: they are teaching you not only how to better control your fall rate and body positioning, but also how to recover from disorienting moves and regain control. At this point, you are ready to experience skydiving at its purest – unassisted. Your training is now complete.
But why stop there? You are now ready for the next step – coached jumps, where you will be taught the skills required to skydive safely with others. Each coached dive is aimed at teaching a specific skill that you can then go practice on your own as you build your jump count towards the 25 necessary to obtain certification, specifically an A-License, from the United States Parachute Association. This license will allow you make unsupervised solo jumps at any USPA-approved skydiving center, as well as pack your own parachute, perform basic group jumps, and even do water jumps. Becoming a master of the sky all starts with the Accelerated Freefall course.
Progress in Your Comfort Zone with a Tandem Progression Course
If you’re ready to take your skydiving experience up a few notches, but maybe aren’t yet confident enough in your skills for the Accelerated Freefall program, no worries. Skydiving.com Mojave Desert can connect you with an affiliate dropzone with a Tandem Progression course which is the perfect fit for you. This course starts with the security of jumping with an instructor that’s quite literally on your back. Attached by a harness, your instructor will be right in your ear every step of the way, from plane exit through landing. This allows students a more gradual learning curve than the AFF course.
During your initial three jumps, your backpack instructor will be teaching you skills and giving you more and more responsibilities. You will learn to execute freefall maneuvers, monitor your altitude and fall rate, track your positioning, and properly deploy your parachute. You will also go over simulated emergency procedures to prepare you for your solo dives.
By your third tandem dive, you should be building both the skills and the confidence necessary to deploy your parachute and land unassisted. You are now ready to transition into the Accelerated Free Fall method. During this phase, you will shed the instructor from your back and dive wearing your own parachute kit while two instructors skydive alongside you, holding onto your harness and giving you real-time advice and assistance if needed.
Again, the goal on these first few jumps is to build skill and confidence toward the ultimate goal: solo freefall. Once you’ve demonstrated you can handle parachute deployment and landing on your own, your instructor will transition you to release dives where he or she will let go of you at a certain predetermined point in the dive. Now you’re flying solo! You’ll also learn how to do aerial maneuvers such as flips, turns, and barrel rolls, which not only look cool, but also teach you how to regain control after becoming disoriented.
Now your training is complete, and you’re ready for coached dives that will teach you additional skills that will allow you to jump safely with others. It also will keep edging you closer to the magic number of 25 dives, which is a requirement to become a United States Parachute Association certified A-Licensed skydiver. This license allows you to skydive solo at any USPA-approved center.
