What Is Tandem Skydiving?
Tandem skydiving is the most popular way to experience the thrill of skydiving without undertaking extensive training to jump solo.
Tandem jumping has made skydiving available to more people than ever before. Now, instead of an all-day training course, you can be ready to skydive in as little as an hour! Skydiving tandem is now the #1 choice of first-time jumpers around the world. Tandem freefall lets you experience the thrill and beauty of skydiving with the security of an instructor right there with you to operate the parachute equipment.
After a brief ground training, you'll suit up and board the aircraft. Your aircraft will climb to your chosen jump altitude while you take in an incredible aerial tour of Ocean City and Assateague Island. The adrenaline starts pumping as you reach jump altitude and your instructor begins to fasten your harness to the parachute system built for two. The door opens and "OMG!"...you're two and a half miles above the ground and the wind is rushing by. You and your instructor leap out of the plane and freefall at 120 MPH! The next 40-90 seconds will feel like an eternity to some and too quick for others. Your parachute opens and the silence compared to the noise of freefall leaves you with a feeling of serenity like no other. Your instructor may let you fly this high-performance parachute if you choose. You're almost back on earth and it's time to let your instructor land the parachute. Congratulations! You've just jumped out of an airplane.
