About the Virginia Skydiving Center
In recent years, tandem skydiving has been popularized as the perfect first jump experience, so consider making the trip to the Virginia Skydiving Center for your first Virginia or Maryland skydiving experience!
Students attach directly to the front of the instructor’s harness and the tandem pairs free fall together from between 13,500 and 14,000 feet, down to 5,000 feet, where the instructor deploys the parachute! From this exit altitude, the student experiences up to an ample 60 second free fall - plenty of time to enjoy the skydive! So, if you seek an incredible free fall experience while tandem skydiving in Maryland, Virginia or North Carolina, check out Virginia Skydiving Center.
After Deploying the Parachute
Then, they float to the ground under a single huge parachute. The student actively participates in directing the parachute’s flight towards the landing area. This method requires the least amount of training, usually about 20 to 30 minutes. You can relax knowing that you are attached to a United States Parachute Association certified instructor who will handle all the details. Yes, that’s right, relax!
