What the heck should I expect?
As the only USPA Group Member drop zone in the central tri-state area, WV Skydivers is the obvious choice for your first jump in the surrounding West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky areas. A tandem jump is the quickest and easiest way to experience skydiving for the first time. You’ll be paired with one of our USPA-rated tandem instructors who will be with you through the whole process. After about 20 minutes of ground instruction, you’ll be ready to climb onto the plane and make your first skydive!
You and your instructor will be strapped together with special parachute gear designed for two. You’ll then enjoy a beautiful plane ride to an elevation of about 11,000 feet above ground level (agl) – that’s over 2 miles into the sky – where your WV Skydivers experience officially begins.
Next comes the most thrilling ride you can get and you'll join an elite group of daredevils to gain a lifetime of bragging rights- you’ll exit the plane with your instructor and experience the remarkable feeling of freefall. You will get an exhilarating 35-45 seconds of freefall reaching speeds of 120mph.
At about 5,000 feet above ground level, your parachute will be deployed. From there, you can either sit back and relax for the scenic canopy ride back to earth. Or, if you prefer, you can ask your instructor to let you take the reins and steer the parachute. Take the ride nice and slow to take in the stunning views, or for even more adventure experience fast canopy turns and spirals.
Your instructor will land the canopy right in front of our hangar for all of your friends and family to see. After jumping at WV Skydivers, you are officially a skydiver!
