The first parachute was invented when Jack, tumbling haplessly from his titanium beanstalk, used a purloined pair of giant underpants to steady his fall. Glide to earth safely with today's Groupon: for $119, you get to take a tandem jump with one of the trained instructors at Start Skydiving, based at the Middletown Regional Airport (up to a $259 value). Start Skydiving is currently open for weekend jumps ($259 value) and will begin taking skysplorers out for weekday jumps throughout April and May ($239 value). Plan on spending up to six hours at Start Skydiving on the day of your jump.

Tandem skydives are a great way to get inexperienced feet wet with something other than terror sweat, offering amateur thrill-seekers a skydiving experience with the security of a trained instructor strapped to their backs. And the experts at Start Skydiving are trained up to their nose-holes—certified by the United States Parachute Association, they also train year-round for formation skydiving with Team Fastrax. The jump itself happens from a height of about 10,500 feet, after which participants free fall for 50 seconds. Following four minutes of falling softly under the protective canopy of an oversized parachute built for two humans or one fortunate pachyderm, plungers alight on the soft, springy earth below.

Reviews

Business Courier featured Start Skydiving, and Dropzoners give the business a perfect five-star average:

  • Great group to jump with too, safety aware, and an all-round top notch operation. Five stars in my book! – KKatchmar, Dropzone
  • I have done 2 tandem jumps with them so far. The people there are professional and very knowledgeable. The equipment appeared to be in top condition. – freefallingmike, Dropzone

Start Skydiving

Start Skydiving owes its ranking as the number-one skydiving location on dropzone.com to its staff of master skydivers, pilots, and instructors. The team navigates its aircraft thousands of feet in the air for tandem or AFF solo skydives, and the jumpers help novices in obtaining their own USPA B, C, or D licenses. Newly inducted divers can gear up with Start Skydiving’s online store, which carries everything from altimeters and flight-specific shirts to tickets for rides on hot-air balloons or twin-engine pterodactyls.

I got this for my son - and he LOVED it! While far out and a challenge to find, it was a great experience from the people to the instruction to the experience itself.
