What You'll Get
For $105, this side deal gets you an instructor-assisted solo skydive jump (a $195 value) at Skydive Fort Wayne, located in the Tri-State Airport in Angola. An instructor-assisted dive, the dive of choice for people interested in a lifetime of falling through clouds rather than a one-time thrill, allows first-time students to fly solo with static lines and plenty of instructor instruction over two-way radios.
Your skydive begins with four hours of ground school, during which experienced instructors will guide you through every step of the process. You'll learn safety procedures, equipment functions, and how to maneuver and land your air chariot. When you jump, you'll be linked to the airplane, a Cesna 182, with 10-foot-long static lines that open the parachute automatically when it falls free of the aircraft, allowing you to experience a dive without the stress of opening your own canopy. Because you'll be in constant radio contact with an instructor on the ground, you'll get vital step-by-step guidance that illuminates the intricacies of sky falling and makes your next, un-tethered dive a sky picnic.
Weather permitting, ground school is offered almost every Saturday and Sunday during the summer from 8:30 a.m. to dark. Reserve your spot by calling ahead.
You must be over 18 years old and sign a waiver to participate.
