At Skydive Central North Carolina your safety is our #1 priority. For novice and first-time jumpers we use the Tandem method. Tandem skydiving is a parachute built for two with the student and instructor securely harnessed together under one parachute. The primary benefit of the tandem method is safety. All of our instructors are certified by the United States Parachute Association as well as the manufacturer of the Tandem parachute system you will be jumping.
Upon completion of an instructional briefing, you and your instructor will board our aircraft and ascend to over 10,000 feet. Once you have reached jump altitude, you (securely fastened to your instructor) will exit the aircraft and experience the exhilaration of freefall at 120 mph for approximately 40 seconds. Once you reach 5,500 feet, you or your instructor will deploy your parachute for a five to seven minute canopy ride. Your descent will be gradual, allowing you time to enjoy the serenity of flight and a bird’s eye view of the breath taking scenery below. You have the option of letting your instructor do all the work of controlling this part of the descent, or taking control yourself (under guidance) and doing some of your own maneuvering! Finally, you and your instructor will land on our beautiful grass strip runway.
Making a Reservation
A $100 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your reservation . Deposits are payable at time of reservation and are non-refundable. The balance of your skydive will be due on the date you jump. Deposits can be applied to your reschedule date if you are unable to jump due to poor weather. The $100 deposit is deducted from the total cost of your jump price as mentioned above. If you book online and pay the full balance in advance you must adhere to the cancellation policy. If you fail to follow the cancellation policy, you will be charged an additional $100 prior to jumping. Our schedule is very busy and we have to remain efficient with our scheduling to serve our customers.
Due to the number of customers we have from week to week, this deposit ensures your time slot for that day. You may reschedule your jump without the loss of deposit if notice is given prior to 48 hours of your scheduled time. We will not jump thru clouds or during any other weather condition which might make your skydive unsafe!
