Tandem Skydiving is Ideal for First Time Skydivers


Tandem Skydiving near Valdosta, Georgia
If you’ve made the decision to try skydiving for the first time, then tandem skydiving is the way to go. Tandem skydives are the type pros recommend most for first timers because they allow the functional responsibilities of the dive to rest with the certified tandem instructor you will be jumping with. The TI (tandem instructor) will assume control of exiting the plane, freefall, canopy deployment, steering and facilitating a safe and effective landing. As a newbie, you will simply be required to relax and take it all in stride!

No more than 30 minutes of instruction is required before boarding the aircraft with your tandem instructor. After reaching an optimum altitude, you will exit the plane with your TI harnessed behind. While in freefall, you may accelerate up to 120 miles per hour and even achieve terminal velocity. When you have descended to roughly 5500 feet above the ground, the TI will deploy your chute. Once you are under the canopy, you will have a few minutes to immerse yourself in the stunning beauty only the deep south can provide. If you are lucky, the TI may allow you to guide the canopy for a couple minutes so you can get a glimpse of what it's like to be solely responsible for a skydive. Sounds amazing right? Then, what are you waiting for?
