The airplanes of Skydive Philadelphia only offer one-way trips, and those journeys end at roughly about 14,000 feet. Strapped to their skydiving sherpas, participants exit the aircraft through the open door, free-falling to reach speeds up to 120 miles per hour. These tandem jumps are suited for beginner skydivers, and don't really require much in the way of training. More experienced skydivers can take advantage of the facilities, which include an indoor parachute packing area, observation zone, and discounted lift tickets that prove far cheaper than buying a lifetime supply of Fizzy Lifting Drink.
