Skydiving Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any age limitations?

You must be at least 16 years of age to skydive in the United States. Some states require participants to be at least 18 years of age. Contact a Thrillations representative for details.

Are there any physical requirements?

In general, the prospective student should be able to wear 30-40 pounds worth of equipment and be in a good physical shape. You will be required to walk short distances and handle the shock of the parachute deploying during your jump. If you have any health or physical problems, please contact your doctor and/or physician prior to making a reservation.

What will the skydive feel like?

The sensation of freefall is more like flying than falling. The parachute flight is inspiring. This portion of the skydive can be anything from an exciting roller coaster type event to a quiet and inspiring flight around the open skies. Many say their skydive has been one of the greatest things that has ever happened to them.

What happens if the parachute doesn't open?

According to FAA regulations, all parachute jumps must be made with a single harness, dual parachute system with both a main and reserve canopy. With a tandem jump, the student wears his or her own harness which is attached to the tandem masters harness. The reserve parachute must be inspected and repacked every 180 days by an FAA rated parachute rigger. Thrillations demands that its vendors strictly adhere to these regulations to ensure your safety.

How hard is the landing?

Landings on tandem skydives are in the hands of your instructor. They will typically land feet first or rear first. Both landings are normally very gentle. AFF jumps do not have a standard “impact” on landing. The landing will be completely up to the student and their abilities.
