Once you arrive at Bay Area Skydiving, head inside the big hanger and over to our Manifest desk. Bay Area Skydiving staff will help you with any paperwork, payments and questions you might have and get you manifested for your flight.
You will be paired with one of our experienced, certified Skydiving Tandem Instructors who will guide you through the entire process and answer any questions you may have. All of our instructors are USPA rated, highly trained and very experienced. If you choose video and pictures, now is also when you will meet your freefall videographer who will start documenting your adventure.
First, you will be fitted with a jumpsuit and harness. Your instructor will adjust the harness to fit you in the most comfortable manner possible. Then he or she will briefly discuss the basics of freefall body position, and what you can do to help yourself have the best time possible.
Next, you will board your waiting aircraft for a scenic ride to jump altitude. Just prior to departure form the aircraft your instructor will verify that everything is ready for the jump and will ask you if you are ready to make a skydive!
Finally, your skydive begins! The next minute will be the most exciting of your life! The thrill of freefalling at around 120 miles an hour is a sensation that cannot be put into words. After the parachute opens you will be amazed at the peace and serenity of canopy flight as you receive hands on instruction on parachute flight. You and your instructor will guide your parachute to the landing area soft, safe landing back on mother earth. You will be thrilled, you will be amazed and you will wonder what took you so long to book your skydive!
