First Time Skydiving

WHAT IS TANDEM SKYDIVING?

Experience One of Life’s Greatest Adventures!

A tandem skydive is a fun-filled experience that you will never forget! During a tandem skydive jump, the student is harnessed to a parachute and instructor who supports and guides them throughout the jump. Tandem students are trained and ready to jump in about an hour!

how does tandem skydiving work?

At Eugene Skydivers, your tandem skydiving experience will begin with a brief group training session. Following group training, we will pair you up with one of our expert tandem instructors for a more detailed, one-on-one training. Your tandem instructor will walk you through a step-by-step description of your skydive and help you ‘gear up’ for your jump. Once you are geared up, you will board the aircraft with your instructor and begin your climb to altitude. The ride to altitude will take about 20 minutes and you’ll be able to take in beautiful views of the Southern Willamette Valley. Once you reach altitude, you will exit the aircraft sharing a parachute with your instructor, and experience approximately 50 seconds of freefall. At the appropriate time, your instructor will deploy the parachute where you will enjoy a peaceful, 3-4 minute canopy ride that will carry you to a soft landing back at the dropzone.
