Tandem Skydiving near Durham, NC

The sport of skydiving began over one thousand years ago in China by those who needed a bit more of an adrenaline rush than ordinary parachuting could give them. In 1977, a new form of the sport was created when two people jumped with one parachute, and tandem skydiving was born. Tandem skydiving near Durham offers a thrill that is safe for those who wish to gain experience before trying skydiving, and exciting for those who wish to feel the adrenaline rush.

 

Your tandem skydiving instructor will prepare you for your flight with a training session which lasts about thirty minutes. You will then be fitted for the two-person harness system which will attach you to your instructor as you jump. When your airplane reaches about ten to fourteen thousand feet, it will be time for the fun to begin! You and the instructor will jump, and feel the rush of free falling at speeds of up to one hundred and twenty miles an hour. Soon the chute will open and a gorgeous canopy ride overlooking the landscape below will take your breath away.

 

Be sure to order the video package when you schedule your tandem skydiving near Durham experience. These memories are ones that you will want to share again and again. In the meantime, be sure to bring your friends along to watch from the ground as you have the time of your life. Much safer than bungee jumping and more thrilling than racing, tandem skydiving is just what your system may need!
