Moab Skydiving

Tandem SkydivingTandem skydiving is today's most innovative and popular way of making that first jump. Your adventure begins with a 30-minute ground school where you meet staff members, view instructional videotapes, and get a general overview of your jump. You will learn how to exit the aircraft, freefall techniques, and body position during landing. Tandem jumping uses the dual instruction approach similar to learning how to fly an airplane, and your tandem instructor will be there to back you up through all phases of your skydive.

The plane ride lasts about 20-25 minutes from which the views are incredible. The heart of the beautiful red rock canyon country of southeastern Utah and breathtaking mountains will surely enhance your experience.

When the time comes to jump, you and your instructor will exit the plane miles above the earth (10,000 feet) and you will feel the exhilaration of free-fall on your very first jump! The free-fall lasts for over 35 seconds and you will reach speeds of up to 120 mph. Most people find it amazing that they feel totally in control when in free-fall. The wind actually feels like a cushion of air suspending you in space and feels more like floating than falling!
