During the tandem jump, United States Parachute Association–certified instructors harness themselves to skydivers and coach them as the pairs plunge from a DHC-6 Twin Otter or Cessna at up to 14,000 feet above the Earth's surface. In 60 seconds of free fall, divers accelerate to 120 miles per hour before instructors open the parachute. The canopy then carries its passengers on a scenic, 6-minute descent back to the ground. Divers' elevated adventures also include ground training and T-shirts commemorating their battles with gravity.

About Florida Skydiving Center
Encompassing three landing areas and nestled amid 250 acres of open terrain, Florida Skydiving Center forms a stage where advanced skydivers compete in national competitions and beginners gain their wings under the guidance of United States Parachute Association–certified instructors. The experienced teachers can take newbies on tandem jumps at up to 14,000 feet above the Earth's garlicky bread crust. For dedicated pupils, the instructors lead accelerated free-fall training, which imparts the skills needed to take solo dives. As divers plunge from the metallic belly of a DHC-6 Twin Otter or Cessna, air-bound photographers sometimes capture adrenaline-packed moments and photo ops with passing Supermans.
Florida Skydiving Center's owners maintain a facility where teams strategize and solo divers can pair up for jumps. A carpeted packing area lets skydivers cleanly prep parachutes, and an onsite store rents and sells the necessary gear to soar among the ghosts of pterodactyls. Outside, RV hookups and free tent camping welcome overnight visitors.
