What is a tandem skydive?
Basically, jumping tandem means that you have a very experienced instructor attached to you during your skydive. He or she will teach you what to do and will check, double check, and triple check (most times quadruple check) all of your gear to make sure you are as safe and comfortable as possible. You do not have to take a course or have any prior experience; you will receive some basic instruction as your gear is being put on. So just sit back, relax, and enjoy the fall!
For the 2011-2012 school year, the club will take two groups of 10
students to make tandem skydives each semester. These jumps are great whether you just
want to cross skydiving off your bucket list, or if you want to have the
experience and then continue on to the certification process. Either
way, this is an experience you'll never forget!
You MUST be 18 or older to make a skydive, even with parental consent.
