North Central State Airport - Smithfield, RI
Mid-April through Mid-October:
Daily - 9:00 AM to Sunset
Imagine yourself in free-fall, 10,000 feet above the Rhode Island countryside, on an electrifying Tandem Skydiving adventure.
- USPA certified instructor leads a 15-minute ground school to start your experience
- Jump from the plane to enjoy 40 seconds of free fall at 120 MPH before your instructor deploys the parachute at 5,500 feet for a breathtaking ride
- An experience you'll never forget!
Jump out of your comfort zone (and an airplane!), for the adrenaline-filled Tandem Skydiving thrill of a lifetime!
As the aircraft reaches your jumping altitude, your instructor tells you it's time. Your heart starts pounding from the adrenaline and excitement as you inch closer to the open aircraft door.
You peer over the edge and then, in a split second, you are on the most exciting ride of your life with an expert instructor at your side.
As you fly through clouds at 120 MPH for 40 seconds, you feel a complete and total sense of freedom not found anywhere else in the world.
To top off the skydive, you'll glide to earth during a serene 5-10 minute ride from 5,500 feet under a parachute built for two. Unwind with incredible views of the beautiful landscape.

Is there an age requirement to participate?
All participants must be at least 18 years of age. There are no exceptions.
What does freefall feel like?
Freefall does not feel like falling, it feels more similar to flying or floating. Some people say it's like windy zero gravity. Freefall will not cause someone to "lose" their stomach like a roller coaster and it rarely bothers those with a fear of heights.
Can I buy a video or photos?
A video and photo package is available for purchase the day of your experience for $95 per person. Please let your instructor know prior to your jump if you are interested in purchasing this package.
