What is a tandem skydive?
Tandem skydiving is the act of jumping out of a plane attached to the front of a certified tandem instructor with a harness as compared to AFF where the student virtually skydives solo his or her first time. This experience is often ‘reserved’ for individuals looking for the first time skydive experience with little training require (10-15 minutes). See our tandem skydiving page for a more detailed description.

Skydiving School and AFF Jumps
What is Accelerated Freefall (AFF)?
What does the parachute training for the AFF jumps consist of?
Training for the AFF course is much more intensive. The AFF course begins with a 3-6 hour training session going over body position, hand signals, exiting the aircraft, potential difficulties in freefall and canopy flight, releasing and piloting the parachute, landing and more. Each level and each jump after your first AFF jump typically require an hour of training beforehand.
