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!
Absolutely everything you need to jump is covered in the price of our tandem skydive. This means your instruction, necessary equipment, and airplane ride to full-altitude are included and you won’t be asked to pay anything more for the jump. However, you will have the option to hire a personal, professional videographer to jump with you and your instructor to film your experience.

Ok, you’re going tandem skydiving… but what should you expect? Once you arrive at Skydive DeLand you will check in at the Gear Store. Here you will watch a quick video from the makers of the tandem system you will be using, then you will fill out a waiver. After the payment process is complete you will hang out on our observation deck or in our restaurant until your instructor is available. You will meet your instructor in the classroom about 20 minutes before you board the plane. While you are in the classroom your instructor will explain the harness system and fit you with it. They will also describe what you should expect during your first tandem skydiving experience and give you a safety briefing. After you are geared up you will head out to meet the plane. Once on board the airplane, you will enjoy an approximately 12-minute ride to your exit altitude of nearly 14,000 feet. That’s over two and a half miles above the earth!
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.
