Skydive the Farm’s trained, professional staff sparks novice jumpers’ adrenaline during tandem skydives that take place in the big blue above 55 acres of idyllic, private farmland. After a thorough safety debriefing, instructors shuttle patrons into the wild blue yonder on one of two resident aircraft. An experienced crew member will then attach himself or herself to each neophyte jumper before the duo jumps out of the plane. Wind rages through hair, clothes, and capes as gravity pulls at divers before a parachute blooms and gently returns them back to Earth. Throughout the experience, a digital camera snaps photos and videos, including footage of the actual jump and a predeparture interview. A collage of adeptly edited images is then emblazoned onto a DVD for customers to take home. At an onsite bonfire pit, concessions area, and camping area, freshly landed jumpers can celebrate their return to solid ground or their new friendship with a griffin met during flight.
At Skydive Georgia, first-time jumpers can skydive tandem-style, strapped to a certified instructor. After mastering the tandem jump, adventurers can enroll in a Level 1 AFF course to prepare for a solo dive, or complete the 7 Level AFF course, requiring them to open their own parachute and land with radio assistance. Available only after several hours of training, these flights earn divers AFF licensing, which allows them to skydive anywhere in the world.
Family and friends can watch their loved ones master the skies from a spacious viewing deck instead of having to find a sturdy enough cloud to climb upon. Divers can also watch themselves afterward via the center’s professionally-made flight DVDs, complete with video footage and photos.
