$124 for One Tandem-Skydiving Session ($250 Value)
During tandem skydives at 10,000 feet, customers leap from a turbine airplane, attached to a certified skydive instructor who uses experience and training to pull the parachute around 5,000 feet. Each jump is preceded by a 30-minute mandatory training session.
From the ground, it’s easy to tell when Skydive Georgia’s airplane reaches 14,000 feet—just look for the tiny specks barreling out of its side. These specks are really the company’s team of certified skydive instructors and their clients, both beginners and experts alike. To ensure everyone’s safety at that extreme altitude, the staff meticulously maintains their turbine airplane and equips all of their parachutes with zero-porosity canopies, digital altimeters, and Cypress automatic-activation devices for a flawless jump. Before and after their big moment, clients can prepare or relax at Skydive Georgia’s climate-controlled training facility, which boasts a simulator, observation deck, and picnic area ideal for swooping down and stealing tuna sandwiches.
