Tandem Skydiving Overview
You'll start your skydiving experience with a 30 minute class in which a tandem instructor will introduce himself and outline your adventure from the basic operation of the equipment through the presentation of your first jump certificate! Next your instructor will show you our tandem equipment, how it operates and it's safety features. Right before you "gear up" you and your instructor will physically practice the exit, proper freefall body position, canopy control, and proper landing position.
Upon completion of the ground training you will gear-up, board the aircraft, and enjoy a 15-20 minute scenic flight on your way to altitude. Mt. Rainier, Mt. Baker, the Puget Sound, the Cascade and Olympic Mountain ranges, the Seattle skyline, Victoria, and the San Juan Islands are just a few of the sights that encircle our picturesque "playground in the sky". At 8,000 to 12,000 ft your instructor will perform the final safety check and move into position for exiting the aircraft. Once in position, your instructor will open the door and as the wind hits your face, the real RUSH begins! You will exit the aircraft and enter the exciting freefall environment for 30-60 seconds of pure adrenaline, human flight, and 130MPH exhilaration!
Once the canopy is open your instructor will adjust your harness for comfort and begin teaching you how to steer your parachute. If you'd like you can continue the excitement with steep turns and spirals or you can simply relax, take in the peaceful view, and become fully conscious of your first skydiving experience.
Upon landing you will be greeted by ground personnel that will congratulate you, collapse the canopy, and help you out of your harness. Your experience will conclude with the presentation of your First Jump Certificate, personally signed by your instructor. Physically your adventure will have come to a close, however, you will take with you the unforgettable memory of that time you left the confines of "traditional flight" and actually flew your body through the sky.
