Skydiving for the first time? Go Tandem Skydiving at Grand Canyon

While Skydiving looks like an activity for the daredevils, it really is not! In Grand Canyon, you don’t have to be an experienced skydiver or a professional to try the adventure sport! The basic guidelines of skydiving are simple: following a quick safety briefing session, you will be strapped into a harness and flown up 15,000 - 18,000 feet high after which you will skydive out of an aeroplane. The freefall approximately lasts about 60 seconds after which the parachute is deployed. You will then have 5-7 minutes to sink in the incredible views while you glide back down to Earth. Beginners and first-timers should go for a tandem skydiving experience whereas experienced divers can go solo.

What is Tandem Skydive?

For all first-time skydive enthusiasts - Tandem Skydiving is the way to go! The skydiving facility here is equipped with licensed, professional instructors and completely safe-to-use technology to ensure that you have the best experience possible. Not just experienced skydivers, but both first-timers and beginners can go skydiving here as well. 

The licensed skydiver will be attached to you by a harness and the jump will be controlled entirely by them, allowing you to happily enjoy the view. All it takes is 30 minutes of training and instructions regarding body movements to adapt and safety rules to follow.

Solo skydiving

Solo skydiving welcomes all experts and professionals who are capable of doing a jump on their own from start to finish. It is opted by those who have previous experience and/or a skydiving license. Unlike tandem skydiving, you take full control of your dive. From the jump to parachute deployment and landing - solo skydiving covers it all!

Solo skydiving is open to beginners as well. This requires you to undergo intensive training, where you learn about the different equipment functionalities, exiting the aeroplane, controlling the freefall, making a safe landing and lots more.

What to Expect on Your First Skydive Tandem Fall in Grand Canyon

1. Skydive slot availability depends on weather

Among several factors that play into your skydive, the weather is the most important one! Depending on the weather and availability of slots, your reserved skydive experience may move up or down. It is recommended to book slots early in the morning, around 7 AM to plan your day accordingly. You’ll be required to sign a few forms and complete the training session if the weather looks good.

2. Before the skydive

Get enough rest before skydiving. It is normal to have a sleepless night before an exciting activity like this, but a good night’s sleep will help you enjoy this activity better. Ensure that you eat light and pack some snacks which will help you keep calm and grounded. Wear loose-fitted clothes so that you’ll feel comfortable the whole day. Yoga pants, leggings, a T-shirt and a long-sleeved shirt or tops would be ideal for this experience.

3. Arrival at skydive facility

Your Grand Canyon skydive experience begins as soon as you reach the facility. Since the experience is strictly dated and timed all guests are advised to check in about 15-20 minutes before their assigned slot, to complete the required documents on time. Following this, you’ll undertake a routine health check-up where the crew will access your height, weight, age, and other relevant factors.

4. Training Session

During your short training session, you will meet the expert skydiving support team, who will guide you through the safety procedures and answer any questions you may have about your jump. Once this process is complete, you can go tandem skydiving. While the solo skydivers jump alone, all tandem skydivers will be accompanied by a trained professional attached to them by a harness. The instructor controls the jump, parachute deployment and landing completely.

5. Gearing up and technical checks

Right after the quick briefing season, you will be fitted up in your gear and prepped up for your skydiving adventure. The instructors will then lead you to the specially outfitted plane. On the way to 15,000 feet, you will be fastened to your tandem jumpmaster. Before making the jump, the jumpmaster will re-check all technical functionalities, making sure everything is accurate in order to ensure you have a safe jump.

6. The Tandem Fall

The entire skydiving experience lasts about 5-7 minutes. Following the freefall, which lasts about 60 seconds, you will get a few minutes to enjoy the incredible views 15,000 - 18,000 feet up in the air. Once the parachute is deployed you gently soar over Earth for about 5-7 minutes before landing.

7. Landing

During the landing stage, float back to the base while enjoying a 360-degree view of the captivating scenery around you. Upon reaching the base, you can collect any extra photos or videos you may have paid for.
