About Tandem Skydiving
First and foremost, you won’t be in this alone. To skydive for the first time, you must be with a tandem skydiving instructor. That means that you won’t actually be the one doing the work. It’s the job of the tandem instructor to keep you stable in the air, pull the parachute at the right altitude, and steer you back for a soft and safe landing.
If you’re looking to level-up and skydive solo, you’re looking for something called an Accelerated Freefall Program. These programs are designed to get you certified to skydive by yourself. Even these programs, however, must begin with a tandem skydive.
Skydiving Requirements for your First Skydive
The first step to a successful skydive is to make sure that you can skydive in the first place! Almost anyone can skydive, but there are a few requirements that exist for the safety of both the skydiver and the instructor.
You must be at least 18 and weigh under 230lbs to skydive at Piedmont Skydiving
For the safety of both the instructor and the student, we require that all skydivers must be at least 18 years of age and weight under 230lbs. Passengers over 200 lbs. may also be required to be physically fit in order to jump. We require a photo ID to prove your age.
