Mind blowing adventure that appeals to everyone: Tupelo Skydiving


Tandem Skydiving near Tupelo, Mississippi

Since its inception, tandem skydiving has served as an excellent means of introduction for newbie skydivers into the sport. Partially due to the fact that it's the perfect way for a first time skydiver to revel in all of the sensations an aerial experience provides. Also, because jumping alongside a certified instructor alleviates the burden off of someone who has no experience guiding a canopy or deploying one for that matter. Additionally and more importantly, its an inclusive activity. Everyone and anyone can tandem skydive. People of various ages and capabilities, even individuals with disabilities can partake in a tandem skydive and get the absolute most out of the adventure.

Beyond the adrenaline surge, there’s the chance to see the gorgeous landscape of the area from an elevated vantage point. This prospect is made even more awesome for those who choose to tandem skydive around these surrounding communities. Obviously, your skydive wont take place in close proximity to a metropolitan area,, that just wouldn't be safe, but the third coast region of the United States offers up some pretty cool eye candy in the form of an impressive landscape.  Some drop zones you may elect to skydive at may be a hike from civilization but it will be well worth the effort when you catch sight of the diversity in sceneries here..

Tandem Skydiving near Tupelo, Mississippi

Elvis Presley may have been born here in Tupelo, but at DZs, tandem skydiving is king!

Nearly 8000 years ago Native Americans traversed the region’s peaks and valleys. Fast forward nearly ten millennia and human beings are flying. Suffice it to say that the tribesmen of yesteryear would probably think something supernatural was occurring if they spotted a human being lacking of a modified forelimb or wing soaring across the sky. Good thing innovation has made it possible, because we know primitive man had to have dreamt of flying too.

It all starts with your phone call to the Tupelo skydiving experts.

After a conversation answering a few questions and getting your reservation set, you will be sent the information for the dropzone most convenient to your location. We must warn you, this may be a ways outside of the city, most drop zones are. Afterall you don’t want a 747 flying over you as you parachute down to the ground right? Right.

When you initially roll up to the drop zone on the day of your tandem skydive, you may be experiencing a twinge of anxiety. We get it, that feeling in the pit of your gut is all part of the experience. Once you've checked in you’ll be introduced to your instructor. You’ll be surprised to find they are really cool and generally pretty laid back. That's one of the most amazing elements surrounding skydiving, the pros are all very welcoming. This is one of the only sports where the participants love to induct new people into their realm. They aren't mean underhanded or overly competitive. They simply have a love for the sport and want to share with as many people as possible.

Once you’ve been briefed by the instructor, they will instruct you to watch a video about what to expect on your tandem skydive. The video may touch on a few things the instructor already mentioned, like body positioning, what to do with your hands which for some reason seems to pose a pretty serious dilemma, and what to do when it's time to land.

You will then be outfitted in your harness and gear which may be a simple as googles or could include a flight suit, its dependent upon the DZ. You and your instructor will board the plane. At the time of check in you may have received info about video packages, which allow for your skydive to be filmed. If you opted to purchase the package, then you will be boarding the plane alongside your instructor and your videographer. They will jump prior to you so as to catch your initial reaction when you exit the plane.

The plane will soar to between 10 and 14,000 feet and when the wind speed is just right, the jumping process will begin. When it’s your turn, your instructor and yourself, now firmly attached to your backside (dependent upon what your instructor looks like, this isn't as sexy as it sounds, but sometimes you get lucky *wink,wink*) will maneuver you toward the plane’s opening and with ready, set, go, your off!

Now, to be fair, this portion of your video may give you the appearance of an inverted hound dog with your cheeks being dragged by an outrageously strong upward thrust toward the heavens but once the chute is deployed in just a few seconds, your face will return to normal, that is, if it was normal to begin with.. Take a second. We know its hard with your head on fire but really get into the rush of this moment. Like some of the best things in life, it will be over all too soon.

When you have reached 5 to 6000 feet above the ground, the instructor or you, if they permit will deploy the chute and you will start the peaceful portion of your descent back to the DZ. You will ride the wind for a few minutes and have a chance to glimpse the scenery that surrounds you. You’ve never seen anything from this elevation. Amazing isn't it?

Now, you land. You arrived safely back down and just moments before your videographer touched down and assumed the position to ensure they capture your landing and commentary after. This as well as all of the footage from your jump will be compiled onto a DVD set to an upbeat soundtrack for you to relive every day of your life if you so choose.
