Chicagoland Skydiving Center (CSC), which boasts a perfect student safety record and is ranked in the top five skydiving schools according to Dropzone.com, fuels massive rushes of adrenaline with tandem skydive jumps from a height of 14,000 feet. After a 20–30 minute orientation, you and your instructor will ascend the skies in one of CSC's safe and fast skydiving aircrafts before dropping into the wide-open skies for up to a minute of free-falling and high-fiving passing clouds. On tandem jumps, divers are strapped to the front of one of CSC's USPA–certified instructors, and given a ripcord and altimeter to mimic the sensation of skydiving solo. Once the parachute blooms, the jump instructor will give you expert guidance as you navigate the parachute together and float to the ground as delicately as a spider clinging to a falling leaf. All equipment is serviced by FAA–certified technicians and replaced every three years to ensure it is safe and up-to-date. For any other questions or concerns, CSC offers a list of FAQs.

Chicagoland Skydiving Center

Fully licensed instructors, thoroughly maintained aircrafts, and a skydiving training program licensed by the US Parachute Association ensure that a jump at Chicagoland Skydiving Center is rigorously safe—but nothing can dampen the thrill of free falling from 14,000 feet. The center’s spotless student record can be attributed both to the longevity of the program, which has been around since 1968, and to the expertise of the instructors, some of whom have made more than 15,000 jumps. Their attention to safety enables visitors to focus on the fun part: a 60-second free fall followed by a leisurely float under a parachute with countless high-fives from passing birds.

Once their feet have firmly planted on the ground, skydivers can celebrate besting Sir Isaac Newton in a spacious facility with games, a lounge, and an onsite restaurant. HD video and photos are ready to take home within minutes of landing to show friends and family footage of the adventure.
