We want to welcome you to the sky family with an exciting Tandem Jump. The School of Human Flight contracts with certified professionals who love sharing this incredible sport with beginners. We have spent decades skydiving all over the World at skydive centers ranging from huge operations doing 100 plus beginners a weekend to small Mom & Pop operations. We’ve chosen to go with the small personalized type as we believe that something as special as your 1st jump should be more like a private dinner at a special restaurant rather than a trip to a cafeteria where your number is called. This is our 26th year of introducing skydiving to residents of N. Florida, South Georgia, and Eastern Alabama at our Quincy FL facility, just 20 minutes west of Tallahassee.
On the day of your jump, our greeter Remington (dog) will meet you in the parking area & walk in with you. We’ll check your waivers (emailed prior to jump), then your individual instructor will teach you step-by-step how the jump will take place, and what will be required of you during the jump. You will be fitted with a special Tandem harness which is attached to the parachute system at 4 points: 2 at the shoulders, 2 at the hips. Pre-jump training takes only 15-20 minutes. Bring as many spectators as you like. It’s a family affair. They can watch the training and the jumps too!
The flight to altitude takes approximately 20 minutes, during which you’ll be able to check out the scenery from a very different, exciting perspective! You will exit the aircraft from nearly 2 miles up and freefall down to about 5,000 feet, where the instructor will deploy the parachute. This jump will introduce you to the thrill, excitement, and beauty of skydiving; familiarize you with the basic freefall body position; and give you some “hands on” air-time flying the parachute. Your instructor is right there with you and can talk you through each step.
