People wanting to try skydiving have two options: Tandem Skydiving (dumping with an instructor) or Static Line (solo first jump course).
According to Skydive Kansas State, tandem skydiving is the easiest way to make the first jump. After 20 minutes of training, jumpers hop into the club's Cessna 182 and climb nearly 2 miles in the sky. Jumpers are securely attached to their instructor and reach speeds of 120 mph when jumping. The ride down takes about five minutes.
If you want to earn your United States Parachute Association (USPA) license, this is the first step. Jumpers attend a six-hour course and then have the chance to jump on their own.
As a special bonus, the club offers video packages to document the experience.
