If you want to jump out of a perfectly good airplane you’ve come to the right place! Since 1982 we’ve introduced thousands of first-time skydivers from Orlando and all over the world to our beautiful Florida skies. A tandem skydive, where you and your experienced instructor fly under a parachute system built for two, is the safest and most popular way to experience skydiving for the first time, and it was developed and tested right here in DeLand!
Once your harness is securely attached to your instructor’s it’s “Ready-Set-Go!” time! You and your instructor will exit the aircraft and freefall for approximately 60 seconds at speeds up to 120 mph. Then your instructor will deploy your parachute and you will enjoy a scenic canopy flight for approximately 5 minutes until you touch down for a feather soft landing. If you hired a personal videographer they will have accompanied you the entire way, filming and taking high-resolution pictures of your complete skydiving experience, from the pre-jump interview during the gear up process all the way through to your landing. It will only take about 20 minutes after the jump for them to hand deliver your edited video and stills package on a USB. You can easily upload the digital footage to share the experience with your friends and family, but we will also provide you with a link to watch it on our YouTube channel.
As of sunset on Saturday, March 21, 2020, Skydive DeLand will be closed until further notice. Please check back here or on our social media accounts for updates.
