After a 15 - 30 minute orientation, you and your instructor will take to the skies. You will climb in an aircraft up to two miles and free-fall for up to a minute on a tandem skydive!  A tandem skydive is a great way to experience the thrill of skydiving while under close supervision of an experienced instructor.  Since you are in front of your skydive instructor, you will have the sensation of skydiving on your own. After you deploy the pilot chute the instructor offers guidance as you fly the parachute together! 


After your first tandem skydive experience, you can continue making tandem jumps or jump over to the Scissortail Training Progression to learn to jump SOLO - it's up to you! Once you attain your USPA License, you can skydive with friends all over the world!
