Parachute Ride and Landing
Deployed at 5,500 ft by instructor. Lasts 5-7 minutes depending on weight of passenger/instructor/size of parachute. Passengers can fly the parachute with the aid of their instructor. Instructor will fly a landing pattern just like an aircraft would use for landing on a runway with a predetermined downwind, base and final approach calculated based on the given wind direction and speed. Passenger will be instructed to lift legs so that both can slide in on the ground. A slide in landing is the safest way to avoid injury to ankles/legs.
Is Skydiving For Everyone?
A Tandem Skydive is something that most people can do and requires no prior experience. If you can jump off of a dinner table and land on your feet without any trouble then you are most likely physically capable of skydiving. Skydiving center’s have restrictions based on age and weight for tandem skydive passengers. Weight restrictions are in place to with customer/instructor safety and to meet requirements made by tandem harness manufacturing companies.
