While astronauts train for the moon's weightlessness in a swimming pool, skydivers must train for the earth's gravitational pull by tying sandbags around their ankles while they run everyday errands. Experience extreme gravity with today's Groupon: for $129, you get a tandem skydive jump from Air Indiana Skydiving Center in Delphi (a $225 value).
The enthusiastic and knowledgeable instructors at Air Indiana teach new students the way of the skydive before accompanying them on sky-to-earth voyages. During a tandem jump, teachers and novice nose-divers take an adrenaline-filled piggyback ride through the sky with the help of a four-point harness. While instructors have control through the entire jump, students often help steer and land the parachute. All jumps take their cues from good weather conditions. Prime jumping season typically lasts from March to November, and leapers launch from 9 a.m. to sunset on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.
Air Indiana Skydiving Center
The gravity-savvy professionals and instructors at Air Indiana Skydiving Center oversee safe and controlled adrenaline rushes every year between late March and early November. In addition to a comprehensive ground school, they also teach practical skills with training jumps that leave from Logansport/Cass County Airport. Over time, they help familiarize students with skydiving by leading controlled tandem jumps, instructor-assisted deployments, and accelerated free falls that exit planes from as high as 9,500 feet.
In addition to its staff of instructors, Air Indiana Skydiving Center also hosts a professional skydiving team. The team of pro jumpers can perform demonstration jumps for company picnics or groundbreaking ceremonies for the neighborhood's new wind tunnel.
