Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ How old do I have to be to skydive?

You must be at least 18 years old to skydive.

What should I wear for skydiving?

Wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing that won’t restrict your movement. Sneakers or athletic shoes are recommended, and avoid wearing anything with a loose fit or that could potentially get caught on equipment.

How do I get started in skydiving?

The first step to getting started in skydiving is to find a reputable dropzone in your area. Most dropzones offer tandem skydives, which involve jumping with an experienced instructor who will guide you through the process. Once you’ve completed a tandem skydive, you can move on to more advanced training to become a licensed skydiver.

Can I breathe during freefall?

Yes, you can breathe during freefall, but the rush of wind can make it difficult to breathe normally. Your instructor will teach you the proper breathing techniques to use during freefall.

Can I get a video or photographs of my jump?

Yes. We can provide you with videos that have been edited to music and include a pre-jump interview. We also provide high definition digital stills of your skydive.

Is tipping expected?

Your instructor(s) works very hard to introduce to you the world of skydiving.  They have spent tens of thousands of dollars in training and equipment to get to the point to take people on tandem skydives.  They are compensated for their jumps,  but if you feel as though your instructor was especially good, tipping is always appreciated but never expected.

Can I bring my GoPro on my tandem skydive?

When you make a tandem skydive, you are considered a student skydiver. Per the rules of the United States Parachute Association, student skydivers cannot jump with any kind of video or photography equipment. For the safety of you and your instructor, unlicensed skydivers will not be permitted to bring along a camera, even a small format sports camera.

Your instructor or videographer may use these tools to record your jump for you. Be assured that these are professional skydivers trained to use these cameras while also maintaining the proper safety procedures during a skydive.
