Tandem Skydiving near Russellville, Arkansas

Tandem Skydiving: Feel It From the Front Seat!

Experience the chills and nerve-tingling thrills of skydiving all while safely secured to an expert instructor who has jumped out of a plane at least 500 times. Better yet, your instructor does almost all the work, leaving you a front-row seat for your epic plunge out of an airplane to your blissful canopy ride overlooking the stunning Arkansas River Valley, Ozark-St. Francis National Forest and Lake Dardanelle.

Sound awesome? We assure you it is. And it all starts when you call Russellville to begin your adventure.

The pros got your entire skydiving experience covered. All you have to do is show up ready to learn and have a blast.

Your day will start out when you meet your fellow jumpers and your friendly instructor whom you will wear as a backpack for your big jump. You’ll go over skydiving basics as well as get familiar with the equipment. You will also get fitted for your skydiving kit and go through basic training on exiting the plane, body positioning during freefall, emergency procedures and more.

After your training is complete, you’re ready to get your suit on and head to the plane. It’s go time!

The roar of the plane’s propellers sings in your ears as the plane climbs to altitude. Around you fellow-jumpers are getting ready for the big moment. There are thumbs-up, pats on the back, deep breaths and then the doors open and your heart pounds in anticipation. Your expert instructor moves you into position and suddenly…you’re free-falling.

Fear and anticipation fly away with the unbelievable awe of a free fall. Behind you, your instructor keeps track of your positioning and altitude. All you have to do is scream and smile and wonder why you never did this before.

All too soon (it seems) your instructor deploys the parachute and with a tug, you’re suddenly gliding above the beauty of the Lake Dardanelle region wishing you had more sets of eyes to take it all in.

And then your instructor glides you into the landing zone and your feet hit the ground. You did it. There are a flurry of slaps on the back and handshakes, but it’s all a blur and you rush over to grab the video so you can relive it all over again.

And then if you’re like so many others, you begin planning your next tandem skydive. It’s that addicting.

Tandem Parachuting in Russellville!

Still a little unsure? Not a problem. Voluntarily jumping out of an airplane isn’t the easiest thing to wrap your head around, but tandem skydiving is the safest way to do it.

Besides, although people still think we’re nuts for launching ourselves through the air from 14,000 feet, we know the truth. It’s actually not that crazy.

Statistically speaking, the National Safety Council says you’re far more likely to die in a car accident while driving to the airfield (1 in 113) or by slipping and falling somehow (1 in 133) than by skydiving (roughly 1 in 100,000). But, uh, feel free to keep those facts to yourself when your friends are watching the video of your epic jump. We won’t tell.

Our expert instructors are trained to put your safety first. They are all certified by the United States Parachute Association, which means they have at least three years of skydiving experience, more than 500 jumps and a master parachute license from a Federal Aviation Administration-approved organization. They also have to pass an FAA medical exam as well as a certification course given by the manufacturer of the parachute that will be used on the jump. These are highly trained people.

And then there’s the equipment.

The FAA requires all tandem parachute kits to be packed with a main and reserve parachute. They are also equipped with an automatic activation device, which is programmed to deploy the parachute if the skydiver is at freefall speeds at a certain altitude. All of this is to ensure your safety and put your mind at ease so you can enjoy the incredible joys of skydiving.

And it is amazing. Plus, with one of our Russellville video packages, you’ll be able to show friends and family and your social media world exactly how awesome it was.

Ready to take the plunge and start your epic skydiving adventure? There’s no better place than Russellville. We’ve got the stunning scenery, the expert instructors, video packages, available group discounts, and gift certificates to hand out to friends after they watch your video. We have it all, but you have to make the first move if you want to jump in Arkansas.

Advanced Skydiving Training in Russellville, Arkansas

Advanced Training: Raise Your Skydiving Game!

In order to truly experience what skydiving is all about, you need to learn how to do it on your own.

At Russellville, we get it, which is why we recommend a pair of advanced training courses aimed at teaching you all you need to know to experience solo free fall.

Your expert instructors will get you up to speed in no time. Depending on your prior experience, skill level and personal preference, we know the perfect course for you.

The Accelerated Free Fall course is the fast-track. Here, you will be diving in your own skydiving kit right from the start while a pair of instructors hold your harness and coach you on the way down. On each successive jump, you will be given more and more responsibility and freedom as you get more comfortable with tracking and monitoring altitude, deploying your parachute and landing. Ultimately, you will transition to release dives, where your instructor will release hold of your harness and you are on your own.

If that sounds like things move too quickly, no problem. Check out a Tandem Progression course that is more gradual. You start out harnessed to your instructor for the first three dives, allowing you time and comfort to learn the skills necessary for your ultimate transition into Accelerated Free Fall.

Both courses aim to teach you all you need to enjoy the thrills of solo free fall, not to mention do cool aerial flips and turns, as soon as you are ready.

And Russellville is the perfect place to do it. Our partners’ friendly and knowledgeable instructors will have you up to speed quickly, and if you’re going to be jumping multiple times, we can’t think of a better venue than over Lake Dardanelle and the Ozark Forest with Mount Nebo and the Arkansas River Valley in the distance. You’ll never tire of the view. It would be perfect.

These courses also put you well on your way to completing the requirements necessary to become a United States Parachute Association-certified (A-Licensed) skydiver. This designation allows you to jump solo at any USPA-approved skydiving center, including the more than 80 in our affiliate network.

Accelerated Free Fall Training in Russellville, Arkansas

Accelerated Free Fall: The Fast Lane to Solo Free Fall

Skydiving captured your soul and now you want to experience it solo? We understand, which is why we recommend the Accelerated Free Fall course – the fastest way to get you experiencing solo freefall.

Your experienced and friendly instructors will teach you all you need to know to be able to skydive on your own, and do some cool aerial acrobatics while you’re at it.

This program will have you jumping while wearing your very own skydiving kit and parachute pack from the very first jump. You will be accompanied by a pair of instructors who will hold onto your harness on the way down to coach you and reinforce different skills you were taught on the ground. They’ll be there to help you out, too, if you require assistance.

In this course, you will learn:

  • Equipment basics
  • Proper technique to exit the airplane
  • Proper body positioning and free fall techniques
  • How to keep track of your positioning and altitude
  • Proper canopy deployment and emergency recognition and procedures.

Your expert instructors wil teach you everything you’ll need to experience the ultimate: skydiving on your own.

During the first three jumps, your instructors will be holding onto your harness during freefall and using hand signals to communicate with you, giving you real-time information and critique. There are even extra pull tabs on your parachute should they need to assist.

But with ground training and instructors right there, you should be fine doing this on your own. Once you’ve demonstrated the ability to deploy your canopy and land on your own, you will be ready for the next step: Release dives.

As the name suggests, this will involve your instructor releasing hold of your harness at a certain point in freefall. Now you know what solo free fall feels like, and it’s amazing.

Now your confidence is building and you’re ready for some fun. Your instructor will work with you on aerial maneuvers such as barrel rolls, flips and turns.

Although these are super fun and look cool on camera, we have a method to the madness. You’re being taught on how to better control your body during free fall and also how to recover from disorienting maneuvers.

At this point, you’re doing everything on your own and your training is complete.

If you’re like us, you’ll want to keep going and move to coached jumps that will teach you additional skills, such as how to skydive safely in groups. But perhaps more importantly, you’ll be increasing your jump-count toward the ultimate goal of the 25 necessary to obtain your United States Parachute Association certification license.

This will allow you to jump solo at any USPA-approved skydiving center, including any of the more than 80 within our affiliate network.

Up your skills and master the sky with an amazing Accelerated Freefall course.

Start your journey toward the freedom and thrills of solo skydiving today.

Russellville, Arkansas Tandem Progression Skydiving Training

Tandem Progression: Solo at Your Own Speed!

If you’re ready to take your skydiving experience up a notch and work towards doing it on your own, Russellville knows the perfect advanced course for you.

The Accelerated Free Fall course if the most popular option, but we know it’s not for everybody. For some, the thought of starting out with your own parachute pack, attached to your instructors by only their grip is a little intimidating.

No problem.

The Tandem Progression program is the perfect answer. It allows you to jump harnessed to your instructor for the first three jumps. Not only does this ease many fears and anxieties – after all, your friendly instructor has done this more than 500 times – but it also allows students to learn skills and build confidence at a more gradual pace.

Securely attached to your instructor, you will make three skydives. During both the jumps as well as the on-the-ground training, you will learn vital skills such as:

  • Properly exiting the airplane
  • Proper freefall technique
  • Tracking your position and altitude
  • Properly deploying your parachute and more

All these skills are aimed at preparing you for your solo dives.

After your third tandem skydive, your instructor has given you more and more responsibilities and you are ready to transition into the Accelerated Free Fall program.

Now you’re ready to start experiencing what skydiving is all about. You will shed your instructor from your back and wear your own skydiving kit and parachute.

You will make your initial dives with a pair of instructors alongside you, holding your harness and coaching you, or assisting you, depending upon what is required.

Again, the goal is to reinforce your skills and give you more and more freedom and control. By this time, your skills and confidence level are building and you should be comfortable deploying your canopy and landing.

Once you can land on your own, you’re likely ready for some solo free falling, which you will begin doing with some “release” dives. Instead of hanging onto your harness until parachute deployment, your instructor will release you at a certain point and you’re basically on your own.

Now for the fun part. You will learn aerial maneuvers such as flips, turns and barrel rolls. Not only will these look awesome for the camera, but you’ll also be learning how to deal with and recover from disorienting maneuvers.

Now your training is complete, but you’ll likely want to continue on with coached dives. These allow you to learn how to skydive in a group, but also will help you increase your jump counts toward the magic 25 necessary to obtain a United States Parachute Association certification license that will allow you to jump solo at any USPA-approved skydiving center, including all of ours in the affiliate network.
