Skydive Sacramento’s skilled team coaches patrons in the fine art of gravity manipulation through safety-centered courses. Prior to each tandem jump, USPA-rated instructors go over safety protocol and landing procedures during 20- to 30-minute ground-school sessions. Each student-instructor pair then slips into free-falling formalwear—such as a tandem harness—that binds them as inseparably as a marriage between glue moguls. After soaring to heights of up to 12,000 feet, four-legged divers spring from aircraft bellies to climb downward at up to 120 miles per hour before opening chutes and sailing gracefully toward the 32-acre landing area. Assisted-free-fall jumps send more experienced divers on solo aerial endeavors, in which they can impress two accompanying AFF instructors by intercepting messages tied to helium balloons. For more information, see Skydive Sacramento’s FAQ page.

Skydive Sacramento

Air rushes past you at 120 miles per hour while the California countryside unfolds thousands of feet below. Blue sky and empty space surround you, and the voice of your U.S. Parachute Association–rated instructor is the only sound you can hear above the wind. At 4,500 feet, the instructor pulls the parachute cord, and the two of you gently drift down to land in 32 acres of open, unobstructed grass. This is what divers experience during tandem skydives or jumps as a part of the Accelerated Freefall program at Skydive Sacramento.

Pilots at the helm of a 15-passenger King Air twin turbine, a four-passenger Cessna 182, or a five-passenger Cessna 206 take students to altitudes of up to 13,000 in as few as 15 minutes. Fitted securely with harnesses and chutes, participants can ask their diving instructor questions about the sport before plunging from the plane in a hands-on free fall and canopy flight, during which they learn steering and hot-air-balloon-avoidance tactics. Though the instructors cater to first-time divers, they also coach more experienced students toward their skydiving license. Instructors, many with 2,000 dives under their belt, also teach students to land in a main grass landing area or a high-performance area with swoop pond.

Customer Reviews

tried booking 2 months prior to groupon expiration date but they were fully booked so I had to pay the difference of the full cost but it was totally worth it. Got it for my boyfriend and he had a blast. He described it as a awesome experience that everyone should try at least once. The Instructor was great. Any nervousness was demolished by his sense of humor. Everyone was friendly and made you feel comfortable. He's planning to go back....just book hella early!
