Tandem Skydiving near Tyler, TX

“I was on the point of cutting the cord that suspended me between heaven and earth . . . and measured with my eye the vast space that separated me from the rest of the human race . . . I felt myself precipitated with a velocity that was checked by the sudden unfolding of my parachute.” (André-Jacques Garnerin, world's first parachutist, 22 October 1797)


Tandem sky diving near Tyler is not just falling, but is more like flying over a beautiful landscape. It is the closest one can get to the feeling of the freedom of flight.

Certified professional skydive instructors will guide you through an experience of a life time. Simply fill out the paperwork, and you are ready to fly!


Approximately 30 minutes of preparatory training will be given on the ground before tandem skydiving near Tyler. Your flight starts at a minimum of ten thousand feet, where you will be harnessed to your certified sky diving instructor.

You will then enjoy a breathtaking canopy ride as you overlook the gorgeous views. This sport is safer than taking a walk down the street, yet provides an adrenaline rush not available in most activities.


For those who order the video package, your experience in flight will be video recorded for you to relive these moments with your loved ones. The entire experience allow you to jump out of an airplane, feel the sudden drop towards the ground, and yet and be alive to tell the tale!
