The Deal

  • $159 for a "Shove Your Love" tandem-skydive jump (up to $229 value)

After a 30-minute training session that helps jumpers learn how to deploy, steer, and land their own parachute, they board a plane that ascends to heights of up to 14,000 feet. Once strapped in with a licensed instructor, jumpers begin a 120-mile-per-hour free fall that lasts for up to two minutes. When the time comes, they pull the ripcord to release the parachute and drift for another five to seven minutes until settling safely down to land. Upon landing, customers receive a logbook that certifies their jump; any jump with Westside Skydivers counts toward their AFP certification program. Read the FAQ page for more information.

Westside Skydivers

After 13 years as a skydiver, Joseph Johnson leapt into a new mission: to become the first franchised skydiving operation in the country. With two locations in two states under his belt so far, he aims to rise above his competitors by offering distinctive features such as a choice of altitudes (13,000, 18,000, or 24,000 feet) and pre-jump training that equips skydivers with the ability to deploy, steer, and land their own chute, even when they’re flying tandem with a licensed instructor. Planes can carry as many as 17 people in one trip, making it ideal for group outings and airborne performances by jazz orchestras, and helmet cams capture the audio and visuals of the entire flight.
