- Excitement of a lifetime!
Can my family and friends watch?
Yes! Bring your family and friends. There will be plenty for them to see. Before
it's your turn to jump, they can watch the experienced skydivers preparing for
their jump. Often their will be a group of jumps preparing for a formation
skydive, called Relative Work. These jumpers will be planning aerial maneuvers
that have them doing a series for formations as they fall through the air. After
the jumpers board the plane, it won't be long before the sky will be dotted with
these jumpers deploying their parachutes. Within a few minutes, the jumpers will
be landing a short distance away. You may even see some of the more experienced
parachute pilots performing an advanced high performance landing that powers the
skydiver across the ground at up to 60 MPH!
After you are "geared-up" and ready to skydive, there will be a chance to snap
some pre-jump pictures. Soon it will be time to board the plane for the
approximately 20 minute flight. If you have good eyes or binoculars, you may be
able to see the plane as it flies across the drop zone on "jump run". For people
with really good sight and a little luck, you may be able to see the jumpers
leave the plane! About a minute later, you'll begin to see the colorful
parachute in the sky above. Look for the larger and higher chutes trailing a
small pink droge parachute. These will be the tandem skydivers. If you can't
find the tandem canopies, ask one of the experienced jumpers or one of the staff
your parachute ride you'll land in the same area as the experienced jumps. Your
family and friends should have a good line of sight view to where you'll land.
If you are having fun, let'em know as you fly overhead. After you are back on
the ground, you'll have a chance for a quick picture with your biggest smile!
