Tandem Skydiving or Accelerated Freefall: Which One to Choose?
The decision to dive from an airplane thousands of feet above the ground is not one that you'll make lightly. If you're a normal person you'll end up imagining the different scenarios of a jump and asking yourself if you're even in your right mind at all. But we live in a society of daredevils, and nothing in life is as exciting as experiencing the anticipation of danger with the security net of modern innovation and professional skydivers. So you've made up your mind to try tandem skydiving or AFF (Accelerated Freefall). Which one do you pick?
Skydiving with a Tandem Instructor
Tandem skydiving is the safest way for customers to get a taste of skydiving without the task of learning how to dive by themselves. You will be briefed before the plane ride on safety procedures and tandem etiquette, so you'll know the best ways to get the most from your time in the air without putting the trainer in danger.
Tandem skydiving provides the same experience of falling from the sky without the worry of managing everything on your own. Rather than flying on your own, you're harnessed to a highly-trained instructor with safety at the forefront. Now, while you won't undergo the type of training you can expect with our AFF program, there is some coaching involved. You'll learn the basics of safety procedures and on the best ways to safely tandem jump with the instructor to avoid putting yourself or the instructor in danger. Tandem skydiving is the best choice for those who want the sensation of free falling minus the responsibility and extensive training.
About Accelerated Freefall Experiences
Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) is what most individuals imagine when they think of skydiving. You are high above the Earth, weightless and free of tethers. The wind whips around your body and the excitement almost takes your breath away.
Our Accelerated Freefall program will educate you as a professional skydiver. Those who do not wish to complete the entire program can take Step one over and over again. In Step One you will discover everything you need to know to safely jump from the airplane and deploy your parachute, including:
- landing techniques
- emergency situation procedures
- steps to launch the emergency backup chute and critical thinking in a stressed environment
- how to freefall and regulate body positioning while falling from the sky
If you're determined to learn, but feel as though you're not 100% ready and need more help with A, B, or C, you can keep working until you are proficient. If you undergo the program, and still don't feel like you're prepared, or feel like bailing. That's okay, too. Don't feel bad if you 'd rather do the tandem jump. Once you've successfully completed the program, you'll become an official licensed professional skydiver. You can then share your certificate with family and friends, and feel proud in your accomplishment as it was no easy task. Because let's face it, not everyone can muster up the courage to carry out what you've just achieved.
Need More Help Deciding?
No matter what your choice, once landing, you can feel free to pat yourself on the back, and celebrate your accomplishment. In addition to amazing memories, you can consider yourself an official skydiver. With AFF or Tandem you will soon come to realize you're part of the skydiving family-- a team of adventure seekers just like yourself.
