About Maryland Skydiving Center
It's not everyday you leap from an airplane two miles above the ground and soar through the air at speeds up to 120 miles per hour. Unless, of course, you're one of the seasoned skydiving instructors at Maryland Skydiving Center.
Here, the team of fearless free-fallers introduce others to the thrill of the jump. Tandem skydives start with a brief training lesson to familiarize newbies with the free-fall position and teach them a few basic words in bird. From there, skydivers are strapped to an experienced instructor and spend several minutes watching other divers jump before boarding their plane. Once the proper altitude is reached, the only thing left to do is jump while the instructor takes care of the rest. After several minutes of adrenaline-boosting free fall, the parachute opens and slows both diver and instructor, allowing them to coast back to solid ground while taking in stunning views of the surrounding landscape.
