USPA-certified instructors teach students the basics of their gear and how it works during an on-ground practice jump, adhering to their Accelerated Freefall-certification curriculum. Then, pairs hop in an airplane to take a quick 20-minute jaunt to a high altitude. Students and instructors strap themselves together before diving out of the plane to experience 60 seconds of free fall. The instructor then deploys the chute, slowing things down for a smooth three- to five-minute decent to Earth beneath the canopy of an air-filled parachute.

About Skydive Tuskegee
When falling out of a plane at 10,000 feet, experience counts. Skydive Tuskegee’s owner boast a wealth of that experience, as a former parachute regiment military officer and three-time world skydiving championship medalist. He and his staff adhere to the rigorous training requirements set forth by the United States Parachute Association, but they also make the experience fun. They often conduct tandem dives with beginners, the instructor controlling the freefall, chute deployment, and decent, while guests soak up the sunshine, wind, and gravity. They staff has led jumps out of planes and into their dropzone for 11 years, and to quote them, “We have never left anyone up there yet.”
