The Skydive Experience Training Programs:

Static Line Training

This method has evolved over the last 30 years from its military origins into a successful method for training sport parachutists. The student gets 4-5 hours of ground training and is then taken to an altitude of about 3500 feet for the jump. The jump itself consists of a simple "poised" exit from the strut of a small single engine Cessna aircraft, or the side door of a larger aircraft. As the student falls away from the plane, the main canopy is deployed by a "static line" attached to the aircraft. The student will experience about two to three seconds of falling as the parachute opens.

Tandem Skydive

The tandem skydive is for someone that wants to get that one time skydiving experience. You will be connected to a USPA certified Tandem Instuctor for the duration of your skydive, from exit to the landing. You will get to expeience all that a professional skydiver experiences. Upon exiting at 10,000 ft., you will get to experience a 30 to 35 second freefall down to 5,000 ft. When the Tandem Master deploys the parachute at 5,000 ft. you will then get to take in the sights, during your 5 to 7 minute flight under the ram-air tandem parachute. You and the Tandem Master will guide the parachute down to the ground and land directly in front of the hanger, where your friends and family will be watching.
