Tandem Skydive

Same-Day Special: Plan to Jump Again? After your first jump, put down a deposit towards another tandem. You lock yourself in for that price for a year. Deposit must be paid the same day you jump.

The tandem skydive is the most popular choice for first time jumpers in the New Orleans area. Requiring only ten minutes of instruction, the student can experience the thrill of free fall with relative ease. The student is attached to an instructor with a special harness. They both exit the aircraft together and descend under one parachute. During the entire skydive, the instructor is safely guiding the student. Appointment highly recommended.

Minimum Age: 18

A student can continue to progress towards solo freefall with the Accelerated Tandem Progression program. This program is comprised of eight levels involving a progression from tandems to solo jumps. An instructor is present on each skydive. The student must pass each level before progressing to the next.

The ground school course will be required after the third tandem is completed.

The student wears full skydiving gear and is accompanied by two instructors during the first three levels. The student will then progress through levels four through seven with one instructor.

Awesome place

My first time to jump in 10 years and the instructor and staff were awesome. They make everyone feel welcome and they are dedicated to their jobs. Paul was my Tandem instructor and Zach was my videographer and they both did an awesome job.
