Connecticut Parachutists, Inc.'s USPA-certified instructors accompany first-time and inexperienced skydivers during tandem jumps.
From two miles up in the sky, duos exit planes and free-fall at speeds of up to 120 MPH before lazily floating back to earth during canopy rides. Of course, some students aspire to become instructors themselves, so they can use the tandem experience as a literal jumping off point into more advanced training programs.
From a perch on Long Island, airplanes cruise high above some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, including the sapphire waves of the Atlantic and the beaches of the Hamptons. But, though the views from the plane are pretty, the experience of soaring through the air above them is unforgettable. Just ask 516 Skydive’s team of experienced instructors. They specialize exclusively in tandem jumps, making skydiving accessible and approachable to all jumpers, regardless of experience level. The staff keeps them safe by adhering to the strict standards of the United States Parachute Association, which enforces rigorous regulations, safety guidelines, and Top Gun code names for instructors.
At Skydive South Shore, the best part of skydiving could be the adrenaline rush—or it could be the panoramic views of the Atlantic, Westhampton Beach, and the Long Island Sound. Based out of Brookhaven-Calabro Airport in Shirley, the New York City–proximate skydiving center is ideally situated to showcase these views on its tandem dives. After jumping, instructor-and-diver duos segue smoothly from free fall to a peaceful parachute flight guided by dual controls.

The bird's eye views of the Atlantic coastline, the Hamptons, and Fire Island are compelling enough, but that's only the beginning for visitors to Long Island Skydiving Center, which has enabled tens of thousands of jumps during more than a decade in business. After ascending thousands of feet, each student is securely attached to a highly trained instructor of the United States Parachute Association before leaping out of a plane and free falling at speeds up to 120 miles per hour. Then the parachute deploys, and jumpers enjoy a picturesque descent back to earth. Long Island Skydiving Center also offers video and photography services for an additional fee, which means you can share your skydive experience with friends and family and taunt your least favorite flightless bird for years to come.
