On a Tandem Skydive, a skilled instructor puts you in the driver’s seat by guiding you through the entire jump – from leaping out of the plane, free falling, piloting your canopy and landing. You will be at the forefront of the whole experience with this assurance of safety literally harnessed to your back and giving you constant support. Do you want to experience a free fall through the sky at over 100 mph? A tandem skydive is the perfect way to find out if this extreme sport provides the adventure you are looking for.
Your First Jump Should Be A Tandem Skydive
Let a trained and licensed instructor take care of all the technical details while guiding you through the most exhilarating experience of your life. Confidently face your fears of being at the edge of the airplane’s open door and peering down 14,000 feet before your heart-pumping leap from a perfectly good airplane. You will be in good hands on your first tandem jump. With years of experience, these instructors know how to provide help in achieving various body movements during free fall, as well as prompting you to open your parachute, maneuvering your gliding sail toward earth, and then searching for the best landing spots. All you really have to do is follow some easy instructions and have fun!
I Want To Try Tandem Skydiving – Now What?
When you call us at Skydiving.com Panama City to book your Tandem Skydive, we take care of the rest. We tell you the location and meeting time of your scheduled jump. All you really have to do is show up. Best to arrive a little earlier than your meeting time to jumpstart that momentum of excited energy you will be feeling all day!
Once paired with an instructor, you are given information about the equipment being used, any safety issues to note, what to expect during the jump, and ways to communicate. After that, you get suited up, harnessed up, and then flown up! Your instructor gives the signal when it is time for you to take that ultimate leap of faith! You could still back out before that signal, but why would you? You’ve got this! It’s going to be incredible!
Instead of being nervous, stay focused on your surroundings. Be aware of everything that is happening, soak in every detail of what you see and hear and think. Free Falling is a windy rush of air and adrenaline! All of your senses trigger at once, heightening every feeling you experience. After you deploy your parachute, enjoy the mellow glide down to earth while overlooking the beautiful tracts of forested preserves and the blue horizon stretched around you 360-degrees.
A Tandem Skydive helps you develop self-confidence and gives you an incredible sense of accomplishment. Jumping out of a plane goes against our survival instincts. It is no small feat to meet your fear, take control and push yourself to take that step. You will feel a pride that overflows into other parts of your life. The experience might not even feel real, because it is unlike anything you have ever experienced before. Have the most freeing, exhilarating time of your life and go skydiving. Aim high in the Florida sky with Skydiving.com Panama City.
Your world feels like a different place after you complete your first jump. Maybe those feelings of confidence and accomplishment of doing your first Tandem Skydive are enough. Yet, maybe there is another feeling, one that keeps nudging you to do it again. Only this time, solo.
Feel once again, that “first-time” heart-pounding excited thrill of a new challenge. Explore some advanced skydiving options with Skydiving.com Panama City. Is skydiving your new hobby? Are you getting more passionate about developing some jumping skills? Could this be a new lifestyle, or a path toward a career choice? You will never know until you take that first leap – again – to find out!
At Skydiving.com Panama City, we can help you with that next “first step” to going solo. We take care of the details beforehand so you can focus on becoming a certified solo skydiver with the United States Parachute Association (USPA). We have an expansive network of affiliate dropzones who employ fully USPA certified skydivers with extensive experience in training advanced-level skills. You will learn safety as well as skydiving techniques from the best instructors in the area.
Importantly, once you earn your A-License with USPA, you can jump solo. With this certification you can solo skydive at any USPA-approved skydiving center, which includes all of the centers in our partner network! Travel to any dropzone in our affiliate network, skydive and meet others passionate about this extreme sport.
These dropzones typically offer two types of advanced training. Each prepares you for your first solo jump through different approaches in the training progression. Read each brief description to pick the one that is right for you.
Life is short and there is no time to waste. Accelerated Free Fall Training (AFF) is the fastest way to getting USPA-certified and experiencing your first solo free fall. The AFF is by far the more popular choice for advancing to solo skydiving because you achieve certification with less expense of time and money.
Instructors take you through eight training levels that progressively get more challenging. You advance by demonstrating skills called Target Learning Objectives (TGO) that you learn at each level.
Like any extreme sport, there are things you need to know in order to stay safe and have fun. We teach you some fascinating aspects of skydiving – the physics of free falling, timing your chute deployment, weather influences, hand-signal communications, and ways to move your body in space. You will become familiar with how to wear and operate the equipment, safety procedures, and free fall maneuvers.
Usually, two instructors take you on your first three jumps, and they use the “Harness Hold” training method. Unlike Tandem Skydiving where an instructor harnesses to your back, two instructors instead manually hold onto your harness on either side of you, letting go only after you deploy your parachute. You deploy at 6,000-feet in the air on your first jump and by the third jump, you deploy at 5,000-feet. That means 1,000-feet more free falling fun!
Should any trouble arise, your instructor is trained and skilled to intervene or simply guide you through the situation calmly and safely. Even your gear is designed with safety features. For example, the Automatic Activation Device (ADD) on your harness will detect if you reach a critical altitude at free fall speed and it will deploy your chute automatically.
You learn through doing jumps and getting instructions in the air as well as talking about the specifics of each jump afterward on the ground. After your third jump, usually only one instructor takes over to teach you aerial maneuvers such as turning, gaining forward movement, doing flips, and controlling your falling rate. When you can do these moves, the instructor knows you can regain control and stability after experiencing a disorienting maneuver.
The next level lets you experience a release dive, meaning the instructor lets go of your harness during free fall. They remain close by and are ready to help, but you are on your own to time your free fall and deploy your chute. Now, you can do all those fun aerial tricks and changing moves solo in free fall! Look to your instructor for hand signals and feedback. Confidently deploy your chute and then guide yourself to the ground slowly while you soak up the feeling of accomplishment.
When you apply for your USPA certification, you will need twenty-five satisfactory jumps for the A-license. Instructors sign your final application after you have performed each level’s TLO to their satisfaction. Congratulations – you’re then a licensed skydiver!
Some drop zones in our affiliate network offer Tandem Progression training. You do several jumps before advancing to the next level. It takes more time, money and effort to achieve the USPA’s A-license than with AFF training, but it’s still an option some prefer.
You start with three tandem skydives and on-the-ground training to learn skydiving and safety principles. By the third jump, you get full control from free fall to landing. The immense satisfaction you gain helps you to move onto the next level with confidence.
Just as in AFF training, the next level involves Harness Holding. Your instructor holds your harness until you deploy your chute. He lets go but stays close at all times! The next step is solo from free fall to landing. You communicate through hand signals and get to show off those fancy moves you learned. Now you get to marvel at flying solo for the first time ever!
After each jump, you meet with your instructor to discuss the details. After they sign off on the required number of jumps necessary for the USPA A-License, you’re good to go solo anytime you want!
You just jumped from 14,000 feet in the air! You just soared through the sky at over 100 mph. You just deployed a parachute and gently glided down to earth! Now, you’re on the ground thinking you will never forget this feeling, and you won’t. Skydiving is one of those activities that give instant gratification – you feel pride, confidence, a sense of accomplishment, and utter exhilaration. Skydiving is really an adrenaline rush pushed to the extreme!
Why not get the whole thing on video! For one, you will need your hands for the jump and holding a camera yourself is not an option. With a video, you will have your skydiving moments captured forever. Feel the flood of excitement whenever you want to, relive that rush and sense of self-satisfaction any time. You’ll want a video because everyone you know will be asking what it’s like to skydive, and words can only convey so much. And, you just did something amazingly extreme; it’s so fun to be able to post these adventures and share the whole experience with your friends.
Skydiving.com Panama City realizes the importance of capturing the heart-pounding moments as they happen. That’s why we like to set up video package options for all jumps – the first-time Tandem as well as for the Accelerated Free Fall and Tandem Progression skydives. When you book your skydive with us, be sure to ask the agent about including one of the two video packages so you can choose the one that suits you and your budget.
The most expensive package is the most comprehensive video of your skydive. A professional videographer captures everything from start to finish. You get interviewed while suited up and on the ground as well as during the plane ride to altitude and right before you jump from the plane. Your videographer jumps first to film your harrowing seconds before you leap into free fall. The video keeps rolling even after you deploy your chute and are leisurely gliding like a bird in the air. By landing first, your videographer is able to capture the moment your feet hit the ground, the celebratory high-fives, and all of your expressions as the flood of excitement surges through every inch of your body.
A more affordable option is the GoPro video package. Your Tandem instructor wears the GoPro camera on his helmet, getting a more close-up view of you during the jump. Also, you’ll see the whole incredible thing again from your perspective, just as you saw it the first time!
All video footage is professionally edited right there at the dropzone into social-media friendly formats to make sharing easy. You, your family and your friends will love watching your skydiving experience every chance possible. Make it easy and fun to relive your unforgettable time in the sky, and to inspire others to join you on your next jump!
