After a brief training class you will be partnered with an experienced instructor who holds a tandem rating with the United States Parachute Association. Your instructor will be with you every step of the way. Get geared up, board the aircraft with your instructor, follow their simple instructions and let them take care of the rest! Experience free fall and take in Texas from 14,500 ft. up in the air! This experience is truly once in a lifetime. Unless of course, you want to do it again!
Do I have to do a Tandem Skydive? No, you don’t. Most people choose to do a tandem first and it’s a great way to get acclimated. However, it is not actually required. If you’re willing to put in the time and receive the additional training you could make your first jump a solo! This sounds crazy but the USPA offers a very structured program for teaching folks to become skydivers. Your first few jumps would be assisted by 2 “Accelerated Free Fall” or “AFF” Instructors. Although you are wearing your own parachute, these instructors would accompany you in freefall and give in-air instruction and assistance. You can become a licensed skydiver in as few as 25 jumps!
