Tandem Skydiving is the easiest way to get used to jumping out of a plane from thousands of feet in the air. It may sound daunting at first, but we work with experienced professionals that prioritize the care and safety of each customer. Virtually anyone can tandem skydive in the U.S. provided that they are at least 18 but that age may vary in different parts of the world. A tandem dive experience is the best way to begin because your instructor is going to be with you the entire time. Literally. The diver you are partnered with is going to be physically connected to you while you make your jump.
Your First Jump Should Be A Tandem Skydive
After you’ve chosen your package and chosen your jump, the instructor will review all safety measures and protocols for the jump. And to ensure safety for beginners, they will be stuck to the professional throughout freefall, piloting and landing safely.
Because they have to start from scratch, the instructor will also walk you through different positions in the air, how to board and leave the aircraft and how to release the parachute. It’s not nearly as complicated as you may think it is and it’s all completely vital to a positive experience diving.
When you start the jump, you will be anywhere between 10,000 and 15,000 feet up in the air. The instructor will be harnessed to the back of you when you jump. The free fall speed can get up to about 120 mph for the duration of the fall. After the instructor pulls the ripcord and releases the parachute, you will enjoy a serene, relaxing float down to the targeted area on the ground. It takes about five minutes to get to the ground after the chute is released. Reach the landing mark and your instructor will help you unhook from the harness as you both celebrate a successful dive from 14,000 feet in the air.
After you finish your dive, you may find the urge to get back in the air, but this time as the one holding the reigns. It’s quite common for jumpers to come back and learn the profession for themselves, and the experts can help you do just that. In order to be an instructor in the U.S., you need to have at least three years of diving experience, 500 dives under your belt and a master parachute license issued by a proper organization. When you return to get started on that process, our friendly representatives will be on standby to lead you in the right direction of certification.
I Want To Try Tandem Skydiving – Now What?
Tandem is the perfect gateway activity for thrill-seekers and adrenaline junkies. It’s an easy enough introduction without much work to do beforehand and it is just as fulfilling and exciting as a solo jump. Not long after your tandem jump will you be signing up for many others. As long as you want the incredible experience of free falling through the air, you’ll want to do it with the most respected and experienced team in the area.
We figured you would want to go back and visit after taking your first dive, so we thought a few steps ahead. Skydiving.com San Jose is now passing along to divers the opportunity to move on to advanced training to become USPA certified. This certification grants you the right to solo dive at any approved skydiving center. With the help of experienced professionals, you will be trained and assessed on all of the aspects of solo diving and diving as a tandem instructor. What’s more, the jumps you take after your first dive can even count for your progression towards an inspiring instructor and licensed carrier. The license labels you as a proficient, safe and able diver and puts you among the ranks of some of the bravest people in the world.
Accelerated Free Fall are exactly what they sound like. That dive you took a little while back? This one is, well, accelerated. They are called this because you experience the fastest solo dive while in an Accelerated Free Fall. They usually occur anywhere from 10,000 to 15,000 feet and can require two instructors just for one student.
You will typically have instructors with you on the first three jumps to make sure that you are able to pull your parachute on your own. After enough jumps and practice, you will have to go through “levels” of jumping where you are released at different heights in the air each time. As a diver, you have to consistently prove that you can pull the chute on your own at the right times. You will then have to practice your maneuvering and control in the air without having any direct aid from the instructors.
It’s important that you do well in the latter levels of the process because you have to be able to pass all of the levels of the training. In order to pass the current level, you have to satisfy every requirement at the instructor’s discretion. They will assist in you passing each level and ultimately decide whether or not to move forward.
The final phase is an important step in the process, but it’s much simpler. Requiring only one instructor from this point, you start implementing all of the moves you’ve learned. The instructor will have you do specific flips, twists, turns and motions that train your body to become accustomed to drastic situations. The more you get used to reacting to dangerous situations, the better off you’ll be in case you really do need to react.
After you’ve completed everything up to this point, you’re in good shape to start jumping! There is no official government issued training in the U.S., so you’re all set at this point. That being said, you do still have to abide by safety and jumping procedures set in place by the United States Parachute Association. It’s a non-profit that exists to represent skydivers and Dropzone owners and they still have a say so in the proper execution of the jumps.
Moving up through the training and advancing can really be a blast, but maybe you want to take baby steps along the way. There is another training type called Tandem Progression. The diver is given a minimal amount of responsibility and has very little to remember. Because of this, the diver has to complete three Tandem Jumps in addition to the Accelerated Free Fall. You will have two instructors when you begin and you will eventually end with one instructor as you continue to advance. Take your time and enjoy the process. You’ll enjoy it best if you do it when you’re ready!

Your first jump is going to be incredible however you look at it, but how great would it be to be able to go back to it anytime? We encourage all of our customers to consider a video package. Dives are often accompanying a vacation or occasion and should be remembered in every photo album. We care deeply about this, so we recommend several options that allow you to customize the package.

Along with these top videographers, dropzone management makes sure that they’re equipped with fitting gear. GoPro cameras are specifically designed for recording footage from a personal perspective and being portable for rapid movement.

This means your perspective as well, as the videographer would be your tandem instructor in this situation.

The finished product is sent to you in common and simple formats that can be shared with social media.
