Skydiving San Francisco
The tallest building in San Francisco, the Transamerica Pyramid, soars to a height of just over 850 feet. The instructors at Skydiving San Francisco climb about 9,000 feet higher than that—and then jump from an airplane. During tandem dives, San Francisco Skydiving's team members harness themselves to customers and rocket back toward earth at approximately 200 feet per second. Additionally, the company offers an Accelerated Freefall program. In that, teachers equip students with the tools to dive on their own so they don't have to learn by progressively jumping off from each stair in their house.
