TANDEM SKYDIVING WITH SKYDIVE PHILADELPHIA!

Discover what it means to fly during a Tandem Skydive. A one-time tandem jump needs only 30 minutes of briefing on the ground before you’ll be ready for your first skydive. You and your certified Tandem Instructor will be harnessed to a parachute system, to enjoy speeds of up to 120mph. Imagine the intense rush you’ll feel zipping through the skies.Tandem Skydiving is the accepted way for first timers to skydive in Philadelphia and is the best method to satisfy your curiosity for the sport. Although your tandem master controls the jump and the landing, you’ll be enjoying it so much, you won’t notice he’s there.

The first time jumper exits the aircraft from an altitude of 10,000 to 14,000 feet and experiences 45 to 60 seconds of free fall. At 5,000 feet, the instructor deploys a huge ram-air parachute designed for two. The student can have their choice of a gentle or thrilling parachute ride to the ground, where they should experience a soft landing.

Tandem jumpers who are bitten by the thrill of the skydiving bug can move on to Accelerated Free Fall for more advanced training. Tandem parachuting allows many disabled people, subject to a satisfactory risk assessment, to experience the thrill of skydiving.

Testimonials
This was my first tandem jump done with SkyDive Philadelphia at their Perkasie location. I did not quite know what to expect, and I have a massive fear of heights, so the jump was a big step for me. Lucky for me, I got Pete S. as my instructor, and he was incredibly reassuring. He immediately instilled trust and a feeling of being safe. He talked to me all the way up, explained what to expect, and it was exactly what I needed. Even when we were at the edge of the plane ready to fall into the airy void, I felt sure that nothing wrong could happen to me. And that made the jump amazing. The calm that you get to experience after the parachute opens and you soar above all things earthly - nothing comes close to that. It's been three days since I first jumped, and I am itching to do it again.

You gotta be kidding me! There is no better way to spend the day than free falling with Skydive Philadelphia. Went with my 19 year old daughter and had the best experience ever. Everyone that works there makes you feel like they are excited for your first jump. U must do this!
