What height and speed will the plane get to for the skydive?

The altitude that each skydiving jump is performed at is dependent on the weather and wind for the day. Most tandem skydives are conducted at a maximum of 14,000 feet above the ground. You can expect to hit speeds of up to 120mph within the first couple moments of your freefall.

Can my party of friends all dive simultaneously?

Don't fret, we'll do our best to keep your group together. You may be able to jump together, but consider a couple of things first. There is a very short delay in between you and each and every skydiver from the plane, which means that you may not freefall and canopy ride at the exact same moment. A few of our skydivers prefer to go up on separate turns so they can watch their loved ones freefall then land on the ground.

Suppose someone really wants to come with you but does not want to jump?

You are more than welcome to bring family and friends to watch your skydiving experience. They can stay on the ground and watch the entire skydiving jump from the viewing area. Non-jumpers are not permitted on the plane at any time.
