  • As your Super Twin Otter reaches an altitude of over 9,000 or 14,000 feet your instructor tells you its 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 thrill ride of your life with an expert instructor at your side. Experience a 30-second freefall with the 9,000 feet jump or a 60-second freefall with the 14,000 feet jump. As you fly through clouds, you feel a complete and total sense of freedom not found anywhere else in the world.

    Once the canopy opens, and your parachute deploys, you can take in views of the famous Chicago area as you glide smoothly towards the ground.

    All tandem jumpmasters have earned USPA's highest rating and have thousands of jumps to their credit. In a 30 year history, your skydive operator has introduced over 100,000 people to skydiving.

    1. Is it safe?
      Like any other extreme sport, there is inherent risk in skydiving. The experience provider is a United States Parachute Association Group Member Parachute Center as well as a certified training center. This means that all FAA rules are followed and only properly rated instructors, approved methods of training, properly maintained aircraft and parachute equipment will be used. No gear is older than three years old and all equipment is maintained by an FAA Master Rigger. They have trained over 100,000 first jump students since opening in 1960 and have a perfect student safety record.
    2. How old do you have to be to skydive?

      In the US, jumpers must be 18 years or older to skydive. 

    3. How much experience do skydiving instructors have?

      To become a skydiving instructor, a jumper must meet qualifications for a number of completed jumps, a number of years in the sport and go through an instructor training program. Tandem instructors must earn ratings from both the United States Parachute Association as well as the manufacturer of the gear they will be using to complete tandem jumps. 

      The experience provider does not hire anyone who simply meets the minimum qualifications. Their staff has years of experience, and must have a proven track record of safety and skill. Skydivers training to earn instructional ratings are mentored by their current staff long before they begin the process of becoming an instructor. They have many loyal staff members who return year after year. It speaks to their safety standards and professional business practices. They are able to recruit some of the best jumpers in the world. Their instructors have made thousands of jumps and received extensive training. Some members of their staff have made well over 15,000 skydives.
