Jump Packages & Rates

Weekday Tandem Skydivefrom $139.00

Tandem skydiving was the brilliant innovation of two pioneering parachute manufacturers in the early 1980's. Seeking to expand the available options for skydiving instruction, both inventors shared ideas until they reached their goal - a parachute built for two! A tandem skydive jump is a fantastic introduction to the unique sport of skydiving. Tandems offer prospective students the opportunity to experience the freedom and exhilaration of skydiving, without spending a lot of time in the classroom. The tandem skydiving training process takes only about an hour. Your Tandem Instructor is a highly experienced skydiver who wears an oversized parachute, built to safely carry two people up to a combined weight of 500 lbs. Your Tandem Skydive Student equipment includes a special purpose harness that attaches at four points to the front of the Tandem Skydiving Instructor. The skydive itself begins with a team exit from 10,500 feet MSL, followed by a 50 second free fall. After about a four minute canopy ride, you arrive smoothly in the landing area. Tandem skydives at Start Skydiving Ohio are ideal for those who long to experience human flight, but would rather not make a solo jump for their first skydive experience. Tandems also open up the world of skydiving to adventurers who are physically or otherwise unable to make a solo jump. Countless tandems have been made by people with physical challenges, such as wheelchair-bound persons, the elderly, and others. Start Skydiving Ohio has developed special equipment and has a trained Staff to provide these students with an incredible skydiving experience. Because this is such an incredible experience and your mind goes into adrenaline overload we encourage every first time jumper to purchase our professional video and stills package. This is something that you can share with others and relive your experience over and over. Many tandem graduates have a personal breakthrough in conquering their fears and living their dreams, often coming away with a life-changing experience. You can read some of these inspiring stories on our testimonials page.
