Tandem jumps begin with a 20-minute ground lesson to introduce students to the basics of skydiving through video demonstrations. Skydivers don the provided gear before boarding the Pilatus Porter plane for 12- to 15-minute rides, during which guides offer a final instructional briefing. Secured snugly to one another, instructor-student duos leap into a thrilling minute of free fall before instructors deploy the parachute, steering the duo into a smooth landing or chasing after escaped parade floats. Airborne photographers use Handcams to capture up-close still photos to memorialize the experience.

Skydive Great Lakes

Nick Kant and Heather Adams wanted the already extraordinary feeling of free fall to be even more incomparable for their customers. The couple devised a skydiving business that could be exhilarating not only for the jumpers but for their family and friends. At Skydive Great Lakes, nonskydivers are welcome to cheer on their flying pals in drop zones designed for spectators, who can view a live video feed from onboard the aircraft. Nick's skills as an aerial videographer allow clients to capture every moment of an inaugural tandem dive, from the initial jump-off to the inevitable midair arguments with Peter Pan. Flying out of Goshen, ground-school grads can board a yellow Pilatus Porter plane that fits up to 10 jumpers. Heather and Nick are the only enthusiasts in the country who launch skydivers from a Sikorsky S-55 helicopter, which hovers over drop zones on select weekends.
