IF THE REGULAR THEME PARK RIDES ARE TOO BORING FOR YOUR DARING SOUL, THIS WILL GET YOUR ADRENALINE PUMPING... THIS IS WHAT YOU'RE IN FOR... the ultimate challenge!
After 6 hours of ground school, you will be ready to skydive on your own. You will learn how to operate your parachute, exit the aircraft, maintain stability and awareness in freefall, deploy your parachute, and fly your parachute to a safe landing. In addition, you will be trained on how to respond to and deal with any potential emergency. And then the fun part.... you will step out of the airplane at 12,500 ft. and freefall for one minute at 120 mph. During freefall, you will be doing altitude checks, body position checks and practice ripcord pulls. It will be the longest and fastest minute of your life! You will open your parachute at 5,000 ft. and fly your parachute for 5 minutes. Your instructor will provide radio backup to assist you with maneuvering and landing your parachute. This is the first in a series of jumps towards earning your United States Parachute Association A- License.

Walking in, I was so nervous and excited and was met with reassurance, calmness and staff that were so happy to be "working", which is an environment that I rarely see.
