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 deal: for $145, you get a tandem skydive with a certified instructor at Triangle Skydiving Center in Louisburg.
Triangle Skydiving Center's tandem jump straps you to an experienced jumpmaster to ensure your skydive journey gets off the ground quickly and safely. After you've completed the necessary paperwork and crossword puzzle, you'll armor up with a proper flight satchel and be strapped to a USPA-certified chaperone. The Beech 99 aircraft delivers jumpers into the atmospheric abyss. At peak altitude—about 13,500 feet—you'll leap out into a 60-second, 120-mph free-fall, during which your backpack buddy can help you perform mid-air maneuvers. Once the ripcord is pulled, five to six minutes of tranquil parachuting will give you time to eye-drink the natural beauty and make a peanut-butter and jelly sandwich.
You can jump from sunrise to sunset year round, and the friendly staffers at Triangle Skydiving Center will ensure an awesome avian adventure with the best equipment, facilities, and instructors. Call ahead to reserve your jump.
Note that to jump you must be 18 years or older, sign a waiver, and weigh less than 225 pounds.

Triangle Skydiving Center
As the super-otter aircraft climbs through the clouds, the energy in the plane is palpable. First-time skydivers and veterans of the sport, all giddy for the oncoming rush of wind and velocity, ready themselves for their leap into the vast blue yonder waiting just outside the plane’s door. For the skilled staff of Triangle Skydiving Center, that feeling is the reason they come to work every morning. Whether they're plunging themselves and a harnessed patron through midair at 13,500 feet or selling high-quality parachute equipment in the gear store, they're dedicated to helping customers find that thrill that previously was only attained by shrinking the kids and living vicariously through them as they spelunk from picnic tables.
