As the prop engine murmurs and the plane reaches its cruising altitude, there's a moment when one of two things happens. Either your stomach drops, even before the rest of your body does, or a calming sensation takes over and a moment of zen occurs. Regardless of how you react to the anticipation of jumping out of the plane, the actual experience of flying is worth the uncertainty. As soon as you emerge from the aircraft, you'll enter an exhilarating free fall before deploying a parachute and gliding safely back to land, finally proving to your middle school sweetheart that you are, in fact, not a bird.
The certified instructors at Illinois Skydiving Center can fly with beginners during tandem jumps or train students to skydive on their own through programs that teach safety, jumping techniques, and parachute deployment. Flights can also be recorded so that students return home with a DVD copy of their flights.
The gravity-savvy professionals and instructors at Air Indiana Skydiving Center oversee safe and controlled adrenaline rushes every year between late March and early November. In addition to a comprehensive ground school, they also teach practical skills with training jumps that leave from Logansport/Cass County Airport. Over time, they help familiarize students with skydiving by leading controlled tandem jumps, instructor-assisted deployments, and accelerated free falls that exit planes from as high as 9,500 feet.
In addition to its staff of instructors, Air Indiana Skydiving Center also hosts a professional skydiving team. The team of pro jumpers can perform demonstration jumps for company picnics or groundbreaking ceremonies for the neighborhood's new wind tunnel.
