You Know it’s Worth it.
Skydiving never fails to impress in one way or another. It is one minute of your life when nothing else matters at all. It is the quickest way to get instant perspective. It is therapeutic, thrilling, fearful and brings out the adventurer in anyone. It takes a certain type of courage, that everyone has, to jump out of an airplane. You must expect sensory overload as your conscious fights against every protective instinct you were born with. The massive jump in adrenaline overcomes every other natural feeling as you step out of the aircraft, strapped to a professional instructor, and for some sixty seconds you plummet towards Earth at 120 mph. Our only goal is to connect you with a skydive tailored to individual needs, without forfeiting the safety, quality and natural experience of each jump. Skydiving.com New York City is committed, above all else, to ensure you leave our affiliate dropzone happy with your decision to throw yourself out of a plane.
Location is a Beautiful Thing.
You can skydive anywhere; why not ‘jump out of a perfectly good airplane’ in the capitol of the world? New York City is the most populated city in the United States, not just in terms of population, but history, landmarks, entertainment, fashion, finance and adventure. When you’re not jumping, you never lack opportunity, adventure or, simply, things to do in the area. Famous for Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, NYSE, Chinatown, and its Subway System, New York City has earned its unique character and reputation for being an international hotspot. Known as the most recognizable cityscapes in the world and placed on one of the world’s largest natural harbors, NYC offers the best potential view for your skydiving experience. While winter jumps aren’t unheard of, Skydiving in NYC truly shines on a hot and humid summer day. Central Park lies at the heart of this lively city, offering a pleasant site on your skydive of nature in the midst of a concrete jungle. The city is nothing short of an epitome of the bustle of civilization, and skydiving is the only way to see it all in a matter of minutes! Skydive around New York City, the capitol of the world, and experience ultimate thrill and a relaxing view of NY.
The Ultimate Thrill – Tandem Skydiving Around New York City
Skydiving.com New York City can introduce you to the thrill of flight at 120 mph with the ease of a tandem skydive at our partner dropzone. Tandem skydiving gives you the opportunity to experience the adrenaline rush of free fall with a therapeutic canopy flight without the hassle of extensive training. Skydiving is intrinsically risky so, naturally enough, you will experience fear. Be brave, embrace the fear and join millions of happy jumpers. Bliss is on the other side of fear, as with most things in life, and you never know how you feel about it until you try.
In most countries, getting this high is illegal.
Be brave. Even if you’re not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference. Any idiot can fly a plane, it takes a certain type of idiot to jump from out of one. But life only starts when you leave your comfort zone, which is why skydiving exists. The enticing aspect, as if there is only one, of a tandem skydive is the ease of the process. Few things are required of a tandem jumper: you must be 18 years of age, physically able and… wait that’s it! A common misconception is that skydiving is a dangerous sport and, therefore, requires excessive training; both of these ideas are fallacies. According to the National Safety Council (let’s assume they’re a credible source), an individual is more likely, much more in fact, to be killed getting struck by lightning or stung by bees rather than on a skydive. Given that, training is limited to a brief ten minute session to teach the student the elements of a successful skydive: proper body position, hand signals and how to pull the parachute (this burden isn’t placed on the student, the tandem master will handle that last part). Look, skydiving is intrinsically risky. But hey, you are consciously deciding to throw yourself out of a plane. No worries though, we have a 100% safety record. Given that, your instructor will handle the process of the jump while you experience sensory overload as the adrenaline rushes in during free fall only to dissipate as relaxation settles in your mind with the canopy flight.
After a 10-20 minute scenic flight to altitude, you will nudge towards the edge of the plane before being thrown out! Keep your head up, smile at your photographer and feel the exhilaration of free fall. After your thrilling fall from heaven, you will experience a 5-7 minute parachute ride, floating safely back down to the drop zone as you take in the beautiful sight of NYC.
At Skydiving.com NYC, we want to give you the experience you are looking for. Whether its a wild tandem skydive or a program to become a solo jumper, we can connect you with the right people to help you get what you want. We’re skydivers, and if there is one thing we’ve learned up there, it’s that you cannot take it for granted. Your first jump will last a lifetime, and we won’t do anything to compromise that. Why jump out of a perfectly good airplane? Because you can. Because it is awesome.

It is safe, easy, and fast! First, you will complete a basic ground course with an experienced skydiving instructor. He or she will explain all the basic safety procedures and precautions of skydiving before taking you up. This will be a one-on-one setting in which you will also learn about how to properly deploy your emergency parachute. You will not be required to perform any of these actions during your New York City Tandem Skydiving experience. This is simply a precaution for your safety and know-how. We at New York City Skydiving just want to make sure that you are properly prepared for your adventure!

Expectations of New York City Tandem Skydiving
You will begin your New York City Skydiving journey when you board the aircraft. Your plane will reach an altitude of 14,000 feet in just a few short minutes, usually about 10 minutes. Once you are high enough, the pilot will turn on the green light. This is the signal that you are ready to jump! With your Tandem Skydiving instructor securely strapped in at your back, you will lunge from the aircraft and into the skies over New York City! You will be falling in what is known as free fall. This is the most heart pounding 60 seconds of your entire life! Nothing else can even come close to this experience. Words can only describe it as being the most intense adrenaline rush you can ever accomplish. You and your New York City Skydiving instructor will be zooming through the skies of New York City for about 45 to 60 seconds. Once you have fallen to a certain altitude, your instructor will deploy the parachute. The parachute, or canopy, will open beautifully, and you will then make your way down to the drop zone. This canopy ride is when you will start to relax from the feeling of free fall. You can take in all the beautiful sights New York has to offer during this 3 to 4 minute relaxing journey down to Earth. See the Statue of Liberty, the Harbor, Central Park, and the glorious cityscape as you float above New York. Your approach for landing will be handled by your instructor until you have safely touched down in the landing area. For people who are prone to nausea or are worried about motion sickness, feel free to take any over-the-counter anti-nausea medications beforehand. Motion sickness is very common. You will be jumping out of an airplane at 14,000! If you have brought along any friends or family, they can be waiting for you in the landing area. They can even film or take pictures of your descent. Don’t forget to reserve a Video Package with your Tandem Skydiving experience. You are not allowed to bring your own camera on board with you for safety reason. However, your friends in the dropzone can film your landing!

The best skydivers in the world are now on your door step. Jump into a world of freedom and learn to skydive solo with the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) first jump course. These skydiving programs, each with their own advantages, are designed to teach you how to skydive safely, efficiently and better than the rest using the innovative training techniques.
Use this training to earn your certification and become a USPA licensed skydiver. With the USPA license, you are certified to jump at any dropzone around the United States. If you love falling down, then skydiving is just for you.
The Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) is a training program for jumpers who lack experience, yet are serious about becoming a ‘skydiver’ in a short span of time. Hence, the program is termed ‘accelerated’ because it is more expeditious than alternative training options like the RAPS program. The course, manifested from the USPA’s safety-oriented Integrated Student Program (ISP), is quite intensive to ensure each student is appropriately prepared for the air and competent enough to preform proper procedures. Provided this, students will either be individually trained or in compact groups with the instructor to ensure individual attention and acquirement of materials. Due to the rigorous nature of AFF, it is runs smoother when the student commits a continuous span of time for the entire training course. Substantial breaks in training will likely negatively impact performance, progression of the course, and can potentially cause additional training or jump costs. The course itself teaches the essential skills to jump competently through 7-8 levels of achievement (A-h), a jump at each level, used to work toward the A-License certification at 25 jumps.
The program commences with 6-8 hours of ground based tuition with the instructor covering theory and practice of skydiving techniques. At which point you will participate in a written test to ensure you are fluently practiced in the material. When the instructors are satisfied with your capabilities on the ground, you will make your first jump (weather permitting) with two instructors holding on to you when you exit the aircraft. Your first solo freefall is treated as a familiarization jump, where the instructors hone and correct your skills through the use of hand signals. At 6,000 feet, you will deploy your own parachute and fly the canopy to the landing zone, under radio guidance, using the techniques and lessons from ground training. Following your jump, a thorough debriefing takes place with your instructors to help you understand what you did right and what you need to work on. This is then followed by remedial training with the purpose of improving skills learned, and those required for subsequent jumps.
Free fall Objectives Overview
A – (Tandem Jump – Optional) Acclimation to freefall, altitude awareness, proper body position, chute deployment
B – Improvement of freefall body position, heading awareness, chute deployment
C – Stable freefall after instructor release, hover control, solo deployment
D – Solo Exit, Controlled freefall turns (90°, 180°, and 360°)
E – Recovery from instability (Barrel roll, front flip, back flip)
F – Tracking, emergency exit rehearsals
G – Tracking, docking with another skydiver, controlling fall rate
H – Diving exit, swoop and dock with another skydiver, front riser control
After graduating from the AFF program, you will need to perform 17 additional consolidation jumps, guided, but not directly assisted, by instructors, practicing the skills you have learned and more advanced techniques to become recognized as a qualified solo skydiver by receiving an A-License.
Have you already tried skydiving and want to learn how to jump solo? We have two different programs available for enrollment for you! New York City Skydiving certified skydiving instructors are the best in New York. With their help, you can begin mastering the art of skydiving today! We offer two courses to achieve your “A license” certification. This license will allow you to jump solo at any USPA approved dropzone in the country. The courses we offer are: Accelerated Free Fall training and Tandem Progression training. Choose the one best suited to your comfort level. Our instructors will be right there with you the entire way!
Our most popular form of skydiving instruction is the Accelerated Free Fall Advanced Skydiving Training program. This is the fastest way for you to experience free fall all by yourself as a student skydiver. This advanced training is divided into multiple levels of course. Each level is meant to teach you something new and guide your along the path of mastery at your own comfort level. Consequently, each level is more difficult than the previous. Once your instructor is satisfied with your performance at each level, you will be able to become certified by the USPA and receive your “A License”. Our expert skydiving instructors will be right there with you as you master your skydiving skills and progress in your training levels. After receiving your “A license” from the United States Parachute Association, you will be permitted to jump solo at altitudes of up to 10,000 feet. Your Advanced Skydiving Training begins in the classroom. You will undergo rigorous coursework during your ground instruction. You will learn all the details of emergency procedures, skydiving safety, body positioning, and maneuvering. You will also master canopy deployment and approaches for landing in the dropzone. Once you have completed your ground training, you will experience skydiving solo for the first time. Your first jump in the Accelerated Free Fall program will be alongside two certified skydiving instructors. Neither of them will be harnessed to you. You will be on your own. However, they will be holding onto you during your free fall. They will be there to provide crucial stability and support during your first solo jump. This will be your first experience with free falling without a tandem instructor. Your skydiving guides will continue with you until normally level three. After that, you will only have one instructor with you, giving your more freedom during your free falling experience.
After every jump, you instructor will review your skydiving video and grade your performance. Upon satisfaction, you will be allowed to move to the next level of training. You will learn how to turn 90º left and right, then you will learn to turn 360º left and right. You will also learn how to track away from your instructor during the free fall and how to execute maneuvers such as the flip. Level six is typically the favorite level among student divers. This is the phase in which you will not have an instructor holding you at all. You will be all on your own. Your instructor will jump alongside you, but he or she will only be there to observe. This is your moment to showcase all of your mad skills! At the end of your Accelerated Free Fall training program, you will have completed the required 25 jumps to get your certification. That means that you can get your “A license.” Other skills you will have mastered are how to pack your parachute properly into your container, how to spot an airplane in the sky, how to inspect your gear properly, and how to recover from sudden movements or unexpected turns. You will have even practiced recovery in emergency situations. Our Accelerated Free Fall program is heart pounding and life changing. You must be at least 18 years old in order to enroll in our AFF Advanced Skydiving Training program. You must also weigh under 240 lbs and be in good physical shape. Some medical restrictions may require a doctor’s note before being allowed to participate. For more information about our AFF training program call us at 646-809-3766 now!
The less popular training program to receive your “A license” is the Tandem Progression Advanced Skydiving Training program. Some of our locations offer this program for people who are more hesitant about jumping from an airplane solo so quickly. In this program, your first three skydives will be tandem skydives. That means that your instructor will be strapped into a harness at your back. This will allow you to become much more comfortable skydiving. If you feel skeptical about the Accelerated Free Fall program, call us to find a location that offer the Tandem Progression Advanced Skydiving Training. Once you have successfully completed 3 tandem jumps, you will be put in the Accelerated Free Fall training program, as seen above.

Video Packages in NY – Adrenaline Shots!
Because skydiving goes beyond cool and into the indescribable, we want to help you relive the experience at any time through our skydive video packages. These packages are offered for both the tandem skydive and the AFF jumps. With a professionally filmed and edited video, you can relive this experience; feel the adrenaline, relaxation again; see that beautiful NYC skyline from 14,000 feet all over again. Or you can share it on social media, so each of your friends and family members can experience secondhand what you did, and maybe inspire them to give it a try.
For your convenience and to give you some flexibility in terms of video preference, you can purchase two types of video packages:
Professional Video Package
An experienced photographer, trained in the art of recording your face, will jump with you, record you and everything you see. The photographer will document the entire dropzone experience, from engaging you with the camera before the jump to the post-jump celebration. Meanwhile, the photographer is flying around you, giving you a high five on camera. Offering you a truly deluxe version of your skydive.
GoPro Handicam Package
The handicam video is the more affordable of the two options. Your instructor will harness a GoPro rig to his wrist to document the entire experience, your face and the view alike, from a first-person perspective. This video offers a more ‘realistic’ approach to the video, as if you were experiencing your skydive again through your own eyes. Share your first-hand experience with friends and family with the GoPro package.
The video is not just about the free fall, or the canopy flight or even the jump from the plane; it’s about the entire moment coming together to make a single awesome experience. A skydive video captures your most fundamental emotions, how brave you were, how nervous you were; it simply captures you at your best.
Consider this: Your first jump is just that, the one and only first-time jump you will ever have.
Take a step back; I’m not saying you will only have one jump or that the feeling of your first-jump will go away, because it won’t. We hope and encourage you to stick with us on your road to certification, so you can be a part of the craziness that takes place here daily. Yet your first jump is a one-time experience, a single step outside the plane that you won’t get to experience again.
If you miss out on the opportunity to document your first jump, you won’t get to take it back. If a customer ever has any regrets, it’s that they decided against getting the video. Do yourself a favor; get the video (and that’s not just the salesman in me talking).
