Tandem Skydiving-

Tandem Skydive in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC
During a tandem skydive, a student skydiver is attached to a certified USPA tandem instructor by a harness.  While attached to your instructor, together you will exit the plane, descend in freefall, and pilot a single canopy to the ground.

For most people who want a one-time skydiving experience, a tandem skydive is the method to choose.  Twenty minutes before your jump, you will be introduced to your tandem instructor who will outfit you with all the necessary gear.  You will also meet your videographer if applicable.

Tandem Skydive in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC

On the 15-20 minute ride to altitude, your tandem instructor will connect your harnesses together. You will exit the plane, experience up to a minute of freefall, and then you or your instructor will deploy the parachute.  Once your parachute is open, you can help to fly it, or leave the flying to your instructor.  It is up to you!
Note: If you decide that you want to proceed to learn to skydive on your own, you can use this skydive as one of the 25 required to get a skydiving license.  Let your instructor know that this is a possibility.

Each person making a skydive MUST bring a government-issued identification to jump and be at least 18 years of age; NO EXCEPTIONS!

Schedule your jump from the highest altitude from the biggest jump plane from the Northern Virginia/Washington DC's only skydiving center operating at the same location for over 33 years!
