If you are wondering if Tandem Skydiving is for you, then you are reading the right article. We had quite a few people wonder what it’s like to go Tandem Skydiving and so we thought we would share what a Tandem Skydiving experience is like as described by the Skydive Baltimore team.
Skydive Baltimore is specialized in offering tandem skydiving. Tandem skydiving is a type of skydiving where the less experienced jumper is connected through a harness to an experienced tandem instructor. Tandem skydiving involves jumping off an aircraft approximately after a 15-minute ride. The 15-minute ride allows the aircraft to reach an altitude of about 11,000 feet. At that point, one of the instructors opens up the door of the aircraft, letting in the fresh air into the cabin. This adds to the excitement of what is about to happen. Adrenaline rushes through everyone. It’s time to jump off the aircraft! Each instructor jumps together with their assigned jumper. In case you are wondering, jumpers go through a brief training session to prepare psychologically for this very exciting moment! At first it’s a free fall at 120mph. During this freefall, breathing is easy, but it’s nearly impossible to talk. After a certain altitude drop, the instructor opens the parachute, and both the instructor and the jumper begin a gradual descent towards the pre-determined landing area.
