There are few things in life that provide the same adrenaline rush that free falling does. It is that heart-pounding and senses-tingling feeling that makes a first time skydiver want to come back for more. Jumping from the open door of a plane and gliding through the gorgeous blue sky provides you with more freedom than any other activity ever. In fact, it is the closest you will ever get to flying.
It is unfortunate how many people toss the idea of skydiving aside because of how dangerous and terrifying it seems to someone who knows little about it. You should stop and ask yourself one simple question – would a company like Skydiving Over Lubbock exist if we were putting our customers at risk? Sure, jumping out of an airplane of your own accord is dangerous. With a licensed skydiving instructor, however, it is a safe, secure, and unimaginable experience. Statistically, you actually put yourself at a greater risk every time you get behind a wheel than when you free fall through the sky.
Tandem skydiving – also referred to as tandem jumping – makes it possible for a first-time jumper to be secured to a skydiving instructor. The instructor will be your guide from the moment you exit the aircraft, as you glide through the gorgeous blue sky, and until you safely land. Tandem skydiving makes it possible for a first timer to enjoy the thrill and elation of free falling without having to worry about the dynamics.
Tandem skydiving is so popular among first timers – and so highly recommended – because it is the safest and most secure option. It also isn’t as demanding as free falling by yourself. In order to do a solo skydive, you have to go through a number of rigorous training sessions that require many hours of your time. You also must complete – and pass – a written example to display your understanding of skydiving.
Tandem skydiving is for people who are looking for the heart-pounding thrill. People who want to experience that adrenaline rush as you plunge from the clouds to the ground. People who are seeking skydiving as a form of entertainment. After a brief introduction, along with some instruction, tandem skydivers are strapped to a licensed tandem instructor and taken on the adventure of a lifetime.
During a few short training sessions, your tandem master will educate you on how to jump from the aircraft, proper placement or your body, canopy control, and how to nail a good landing. Your instructor will also take the time to show you all the equipment and how it works. Even though you will take the time to learn about the equipment and safety features, your tandem master will be in control the entire time.
Yes, feeling so nervous you get sick to your stomach is normal the first time you go on a skydiving venture. Fortunately, this sick and nervous feeling is just temporary. As you step out of the aircraft, freefall from the sky, and stick the landing – you will forget you were ever anxious in the first place.
You can rest easy and have a carefree free falling venture because secure safety equipment will be used with every jump. Shortly after you jump from the aircraft, your instructor will pull on a cable. This starts a chain of events necessary for the primary parachute to come out of its container and slowly inflate. As all of this is happening, you will start to fall a little slower as you grow closer and closer to the ground.
In addition, to the main parachute, you, and your instructor will also have a reserve parachute. The safety equipment also comes with an automatic activation device. This device will automatically deploy your parachute if you drop below a certain altitude before the instructor manually deploys it.
Every tandem skydiving instructor is required to belong to the USPA in addition to logging at least 500 jumps and a minimum of 3 hours of free falling. All the tandem skydiving instructors at Skydiving Over Lubbock have a minimum of three years of skydiving experience under their belt. Basically, you couldn’t be in better hands.
Still feeling nervous about your free fall from the sky? Here are some tips we recommend to help all our first timers have the most magical experience possible.
Bring a light snack to enjoy at the beginning of the session. Eating something small before the session starts will help with any nausea you feel from your nerves.
There is nothing wrong with a small dose of an over-the-counter medication for motion sickness. Just take it a few hours before your free falling experience. This will also help with any nausea you may experience.
After your briefing session, we will get you harnessed to your instructor. Then, you can enjoy a nice plane ride before your free falling adventure. Typically, an instructor will countdown before the two of you step off the aircraft and into the clouds. It is not uncommon for the rush of wind pushing against your body and face to overwhelm you. Just remember to keep breathing and trust your instructor and safety equipment to do their jobs.
Per the U.S. Parachute Association, all tandem skydivers are required to be at least 18 years of age. If you are 18 years of age or older and want to know what it feels like to walk off an aircraft and glide through the sky, give us a call today to get a free tandem skydiving estimate.
