What does freefall feel like?
Freefall feels like flying or floating, not like falling. Some people say it's like zero gravity, but windy. Freefall will not cause someone to "lose" their stomach like a roller coaster and it rarely bothers those with a fear of heights.
How long is the class?
You will only need a short briefing, about one and a half hours, but plan on spending at least half the day.
Will I be scared?
Maybe or maybe not. It's human nature to be frightened of the unknown. You will definitely feel a surge of excitement and anticipation before the jump. During the jump itself, you'll probably feel a thrill that you've never experienced before- you'll love it!
Is there a weight and age limit?
Yes. The minimum age for skydiving is 18 regardless of parental consent. The weight limit is 230 pounds and within certain height to weight ratio's. Participants should also be in good physical and mental condition.
Can I get pictures of my skydive?
Yes, you can purchase for $99 a professionally edited video and DVD stills of your skydive.
