Take the stability of a tandem jump while still advancing towards your A-license with the USPA (United States Parachute Association). Created for students thrilled about the sport but still striving to acclimate to the stress of using the risers to properly drop to the landing zone, the tandem progression proceeds more gradually through the mandated curriculum. The most vital aspect of what we do is lead rookies into the world of skydiving. Get to understand what it feels like to freefall, check your altimeter until it renders close to 5,000 feet, and have the urge to do something more daring each jump. As safety is taken extremely seriously at any location we make available, rest assured that each of the aircraft, rigging, AAD (automatic activation device) and other FAA provided procedures are monitored carefully. In virtually every situation, there is a backup in place to ensure you don't have to stress about a thing.
SIT FLAT, LEGS BENT, AND ENJOY THE RIDE!
TANDEM SKYDIVING IN San Francisco LEVEL 1
With lessons involving turning in freefall, deploying the main chute, performing an effective body arch, and manipulating the canopy, we start you off with your first level. USPA approved instructors will watch from a range during more complex levels, but they stay with you the whole time for this one. As soon as you've deployed at the proper height, the second stage of education commences as you experience the practical application of canopy operation throughout comparatively typical maneuvers.
TANDEM SKYDIVING IN San Francisco LEVEL 2
Stage 2 of skydiving with one of our San Francisco area crews supplies you with the opportunity to control more distinct freefall turns and greater stability. Before you deploy your parachute, you must absolutely wave off. This is pivotal, simply because it helps other skydivers in the area realize that anyone above you will have to move out of the hazard zone. You will most likely do this at approximately 5,000 feet. After this, you will assist with the landing to help prove your competency at this phase. Practice makes perfect, and PLF (Parachute Landing Fall) lessons will empower you to mitigate what could possibly end up being a harsher landing. Once you've landed, your trainer should go over what you can improve upon during your jump. Assuming you've been paying attention and performing appropriately, you're headed to level three.
TANDEM SKYDIVING IN San Francisco LEVEL 3
Releasing your canopy, keeping your heading at an advanced degree, fairly exact 360 degree turning in freefall, and shifting forwards are the primary instruction points you'll come across in stage three. Once this level is completed, you'll be done with the tandem segment of the curriculum and be ushered into stage four of the AFF (accelerated freefall) skydiving school program. Now that you have the jitters out of your system, it will be that much easier to calmly regulate your actions and develop your technique. The adrenaline rush is there, yet it's not the uncontrollable craze that you deal with during your initial jump. It won't be long until you're one of the skydiver vets!
