During the tandem jump, United States Parachute Association–certified instructors harness themselves to skydivers and coach them as the pairs plunge from a Twin Otter aircraft at up to 14,000 feet above the ground. In 60 seconds of free fall, divers accelerate to 120 miles per hour before instructors open the parachute. The canopy then carries its passengers on a scenic, six-minute descent back to the ground. Divers' elevated adventure also includes ground training and a T-shirt to commemorate their battle with gravity.
Skydive Lake Wales
At Skydive Lake Wales, the team will do visitors an unusual favor—they'll jump out of a plane with them at an altitude of 14,000 feet. Strapped to their certified instructor, newbies reach speeds of up to 120 mph during a 60-second free fall; next, the instructor opens a parachute, and the pair floats lazily to the ground. More experienced jumpers can enjoy the skydiving center, too, enrolling in a class sequence that culminates in certification.
