Prior to static-line jumps, students spend a lesson learning how to wear jumpsuits and arch their body during freefall. After graduating from ground school, students take to the skies for one solo jump with an automatically deploying parachute. During tandem jumps, fist-timers are strapped to the belly of a friendly, experienced instructor. Couples leap into the air and free fall for about a minute before instructors pull the cord, after which pairs will sail down the skyway supported by a specially designed parachute for two.<p>
Illinois Skydiving Center
Illinois Skydiving Center trains aspiring daredevils through a trio of tandem, static-line, and accelerated-free-fall classes. AFF classes teach solo skills under the direction of instructors and coaches who jump with you, teaching stability and proper deployment skills. Static-line progression jumps prepare sky mavens for the pressures of a solo career with an ascending series of jumps that impart the art of free fall. During tandem jumps, students are strapped to a certified instructor who pulls the cord and directs the movements of parachute as guests take in breathtaking views of the landscape, local tributaries, and central-state volcanoes before feet land safely on the ground.
