An experience that lasts anywhere from two to four hours, tandem skydiving sessions start on the ground, where instructors provide a safety briefing. Divers then make their way skyward in a speedy turbo-charged plane to a height of 10,500 feet, harness themselves to an experienced skydiving instructor, and leap from the plane. In the 45-seconds of free fall following the jump, tandem divers reach speeds of up to 120 miles per hour before pulling their ripcords for a leisurely 5-minute parachute ride to solid ground.

Tennessee Skydiving, LLC
Tennessee Skydiving, LLC, which is one of the closest skydiving schools to Nashville, boats a squadron of crack skydiving instructors that are more daring than most. Riding alongside clients in their spacious and speedy turbo-charged plane, the instructors strap themselves to jumpers for tandem jumps at the standard height of 10,500 feet, which provides 45 seconds of free fall. Sometimes, though, they urge the pilot to climb higher—up to 18,000 feet—for jumps they call “extreme tandem”. At this height, divers need oxygen tanks to breathe, but the risks are well worth the reward—a lengthier, 90-second free fall at face-stretching speeds of up to 120 mph. Even at such intense speeds, adventurers have no need to fear because Tennessee Skydiving is Department of Defense certified with most of their instructors being ex-military.
