America has always been the most extreme country, from the Boston Tea Punchings to having the first man swear on the moon. We hold this shredding guitar solo to be self-evident with today's Groupon: for $114, you get a tandem jump at Skydive Jersey, located in Pittstown (a $229 value).

Skydive Jersey’s certified instructors help humans activate adrenaline and whittle away at life checklists with airborne adventures over pastoral Pittstown. The tandem trip, highly recommended for first-time free-fallers, includes a padded harness and a qualified companion jumper to pull one of the two parachutes and whisper book recommendations. Each excursion begins with a one-hour training session, which prepares participants for airplane exits, basic free-fall body position, and the ins and outs of piloting a parachute. After the aeronautical education is complete, thrill-seekers will embark on a 30-minute one-way flight, where they'll excuse themselves at the side door for 60 seconds of free fall, 10 minutes of parachute floating, and a lifetime of respect from birds.

Skydive Jersey is governed by the Federal Aviation Administration and operates seven days a week out of Alexandria Field, located approximately an hour from New York City and Philadelphia. All instructors are certified by the U.S. Parachute Association and have notched their belts with a minimum of 500 sport parachute jumps.

Skydive Jersey

The Manhattan and Philadelphia skylines are just specks in the distance, as your plane slowly climbs. Once it reaches the proper altitude, the cabin doors fling open. It's time to jump. The instructor strapped to your back gives you a nod, and you tumble through the sky, free-falling at 120 mph for nearly a minute before the parachute opens and you drift gently to the ground.

This scenario fills some with fear and others with an intoxicating wave of adrenaline, but for the instructors at Skydive Jersey, it's just another day on the job. That's because for more than 20 years their company has been specializing in tandem jumps, which retain all the thrill of solo jumps without the months of required training. In fact, this group of experienced skydivers can teach first-timers all the essential skills and safety precautions necessary to take the big leap in only an hour. Skydive Jersey even offers group rates for folks who want to skydive with their friends or bring a pet emu along so it can finally experience the sensation of flight.

Customer Reviews

My son and I had an exciting time doing a tandem jump. Paul and the rest of the staff were very professional and safe instructors. We're looking forward to summer 2017 to do it again.

The entire experience was organized and amazing from beginning to end. The instructors are super cool and I highly recommend paying for the media package (video and photos). Huge shout out to "Brandon" my tandem buddy. We became "close" real quick and he will be a forever great memory to my 50th birthday weekend.

Absolutely the best time ever! I went skydiving before at a different place, but this one by far was the best. My instructors name was Robbie. He truly made the experience worth every second and dime spent. Can't wait to go back!! Highly recommend this place to everyone.
