Tandem jumping is about the EASIEST way to do that “FIRST JUMP”. After about 20 minutes of preparation and training, then fitted in the gear, you will climb aboard and ascend to altitude. Wearing the harness and connected directly to your Tandem Instructor, you will jump together accelerating to over 120 MPH (200 kph), hurtling towards earth.
At about 4500 feet, we will open the parachute, and you can then assist us in steering the canopy during the 3-7 minute ride down. During that time you will have an epic birds-eye view of the ADIRONDACKS, LAKE GEORGE, GREEN and WHITE MOUNTAINS of Eastern VERMONT even as far south as SARATOGA SPRINGS.
You then land back at the drop-zone where your friends and family will be waiting to greet you.
Additionally you can have your instructor video the skydive, and take still pictures, including ‘candid’ interviews of you with shots of the scenic vistas, providing you with a professional quality recording of your experience, ready to share with your family and friends!
ACCELERATED FREE FALL
The Accelerated Free Fall Program equips novice skydivers with free fall and canopy control skills through a multi level system designed to teach you how to skydive safely. Safety is greatly enhanced by direct-in-air jump master supervision. To ensure safety for yourself and other skydivers, you must demonstrate proficiency on one level before progressing to the next.
This course consists of first completing a 4 to 6 hour class referred to as “Ground School” followed by your first “SOLO” skydive which is done under the direct supervision of U.S.P.A. certified instructors via the dual harness hold method.
There are a total of 5 CATEGORIES totaling 7 JUMPS in the A.F.F. PROGRAM
Successful completion of each category will allow you to progress towards solo unsupervised and coached jumps and eventually allow you to obtain an “A” license (as all the criteria on the proficiency card has been met).
