Tandem Skydiving is popular among first time jumpers looking to experience the thrill of skydiving. Offering an introduction to the sport, Tandem Skydiving will allow jumpers to free-fall for 30 seconds while securely harnessed to one of our trained instructors. The tandem instructor will allow you to keep track of the jump using your own altimeter and let you pull the ripcord to release the parachute (of course, your instructor will back you up). Tandem Skydiving requires minimal ground preparation, but you should expect to be at our skydiving center for half the day. Come fall in love with skydiving by scheduling your tandem jump today.
For those looking to solo jump on their first day, consider the Static Line Jump. The jump itself consists of a simple poised exit from the airplane. As the skydiver falls away from the plane, the deployment of the main canopy is initiated by a “static line” attached to the aircraft. The skydiver will experience only a very short free fall before the opening of the main parachute is initiated. You will be required to go through Ground School for 4-5 hours before your jump so plan to be at our skydiving center all day. Ground School Training will be held rain or shine. Come solo jump via a static line! Schedule your jump online today!
If you are looking to be on the fast track to becoming a skydiver, Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is for you! The training for AFF is extensive, but you will experience a 50 second free-fall on your first jump! Plan to be at our skydiving center all day as we prepare you for an incredible experience. On your first AFF jump you exit from the airplane with two USPA AFF Instructors. On your first jump the instructors maintain a grip on your harness and give you in-air instruction via hand signals and assist with stability when necessary. You will open the parachute around 5,500 feet and another instructor on the ground will assist you in piloting the parachute via verbal guidance through a radio mounted in your helmet. Ground School Training will be held rain or shine. If you are looking for serious fun try an Accelerated Freefall!
After your jump, you can purchase a video and photographs of your skydiving experience. You will want to capture this moment in time to share with all your friends and family. Show the world the time you jumped out of an airplane for fun! You can also purchase Gift Certificates for others to enjoy Skydive Kentucky!
