A Short "Walk Through" of a Traditional First Day.

Skydiving is a popular sport that offers a surreal experience, forcing many first time skydivers to keep returning to jump again. It provides an unique chance to experience complete freedom as you free fall through the sky. It's as close as anyone could ever get to real flying. Many people who are interested in skydiving are hesitant, thinking that the activity is unsafe. The United States Parachute Association has reported an average of 350,000 people who have successfully completed over 3 million jumps annually. This statistic shows that driving is potentially more risky than taking a skydive.

Why go with Tandem Skydiving if you haven’t tried skydiving before?

What do you think complete freedom tastes like? Imagine what a bird must feel, soaring through the sky. This is what skydiving can offer you, which is why we have to warn you right away: it’s highly addictive! Many of our clients keep returning to us for more.

You may have reservations about safety. It’s completely understandable, but rest assured: The United States Parachute Association has reported an average of 350,000 people who have successfully completed over 3.000.000 jumps annually. If you compare this statistic to, say, driving, you can see that skydiving is safer than getting into a car.

At Skydiving San Antonio, we value our expert instructors above everything else because they are the heart and soul of our operation. We guarantee that you can trust your instructor with your life: she or he has gone through rigorous training, has at least three years of skydiving experience and knows everything there is to know about skydiving equipment, drop zone layout, free falls, planes, canopy flights and landings.

Why go with Tandem Skydiving if you haven’t tried skydiving before?

The answer is obvious: experience first, learn later. If you want to skydive by yourself, you have to complete a serious training program, not to mention the tests to get your certificate that allows you to dive alone. If you’re only looking for an adventure for now, or you’re still hesitant whether you want to get certified, opting for a tandem skydive is the obvious choice. After only a short training to ensure your safety, you’ll be strapped to a world-class tandem instructor and the breathtaking adventure is ready to begin!

Tandem Skydive Jumps

During tandem jumping, you will be strapped to an experienced instructor who is responsible for all major steps along the way: exiting the aircraft, jumping, soaring, and safely touching down onto the ground. The instructor covers most of the hard work associated with freefalling and navigating, while you are able to fully experience the incomparable sensation of flying.

During a short ground lesson, your instructor will explain everything about the process and you will learn all you need to know about how to exit the aircraft, proper body positions, canopy control and good landing postures. As a safety precaution, your instructor will show you how to deploy the parachute, even though it will not be operated by you during the actual skydiving activity.

You may experience a bit of nausea before and during the session, but rest assured: many first timers feel this way and it’s completely normal. Skydiving is a thrilling experience, and adrenaline is often accompanied by nerves which can cause you to feel slightly nauseous. People in the upper range of skydiving weight restrictions are more likely to feel sick. Don’t worry about this; the nausea will disappear shortly after landing.

In the course of your ground training, your instructor will show you the many pieces of equipment needed for tandem skydiving. The drogue launch cable is responsible for allowing the drogue to catch air, thus drawing the main parachute from the container and causing it to expand. Your instructor will pull it shortly after you exit the aircraft. This will also cause your descent to decelerate. Your safety is guaranteed by the automatic activation device (AAD) that detects whether you have opened the parachute effectively. If it senses a malfunction, it releases the reserve parachute.

How to become a Skydiving Instructor

You’re in love with skydiving and want to share your love with others? We can help you fulfill your dream to become an expert instructor! We’ll guide you along every step of the way: we’ll assist you in becoming a member of USPA and help you to complete the required 500 jumps and 3 hours of freefall.

Advice for First Time Skydiving

  • Before you embark on the adventure of your lifetime, you’ll have another chance to put your mind at ease and resolve any concerns you might still have about skydiving. Your instructor will give a last briefing at the drop zone and you’ll be able to ask any questions and share your potential concerns. You can bring your favorite light snack and eat it at the start of the tour to prevent possible nausea.
  • If you’re prone to motion sickness, we advise you to bring any over-the-counter medicine that might help.
  • After the briefing, you will be supplied with goggles, jumpsuits, helmets and safety equipment to help protect against serious injuries, especially during touchdown.

The Adrenaline Rush

All the preparations are done and the moment comes when the plane lifts you high in the sky. Your instructor gives a signal and the adventure begins: you’re out in the air, soaring like a bird. The gorgeous scenery of San Antonio unfolds on the ground and you’re rushing towards it at 120 miles per hour. But your mind's at ease because you know your high-tech gear is protecting you every step of the way. You breathe through your mouth and relish the sensation of the wind blowing into your face. The ground is coming closer and you feel a pang of regret as your feet touch the ground. There’s only one question in your mind: when can I do it again?
