You will arrive at the dropzone, fill out a waiver, go through a quick 10 minute training session and get harnessed before walking to the plane. After a 10 minute flight to altitude riddled with combating emotions of fear, excitement and nervousness; you will nudge, likely hesitantly, towards the door before being thrown out! Keep your head up, smile big for the camera, enjoy the scenery and take in an experience like no other. After your adrenaline-pumping freefall, you will float safely back to the ground under the canopy for about 5-7 minutes. While this is typically the more relaxed portion of the jump, our instructors are prepared to customize the flight to ensure it’s as wild or mild as you would like.
For what it’s worth, skydiving isn’t exactly ‘unsafe’ despite the common misconception. You are more likely to die of a fireworks discharge or a flood than on a tandem skydive. Nevertheless, Skydive Georgia takes every available precaution to ensure your jump is rid of any unnecessary risk. Each tandem instructor is licensed by the United States Parachute Association (USPA), having a minimum of 3 years experience, 500 jumps and a USPA Master Skydiving license. However, most of our instructors have been in the sport long enough to accrue thousands of skydives.
Our modern equipment is constantly cycled to ensure the latest and safest model is being used. Each rig consists of a main and reserve parachute with the added precaution of an Automatic Activation Device (AAD). If any problem occurs with the main parachute, the instructor will cut it and deploy the reserve, which is packed by a F.A.A licensed Master Parachute Rigger every 180 days. If worst comes to worst and neither parachute deploys by 1,650 ft, the AAD device will activate deploying the reserve parachute. Each instructor undergoes vigorous training to ensure they are prepared to handle any obstacle in flight; this along with natural experience is the perfect recipe for a smooth and happy jump.
