High-Altitude Tandems

17,500 Feet: The Highest High

Only at Piedmont Skydiving

High Altitude Tandem Skydive Highlights:

High-Altitude Tandems in North Carolina

  • Highest Skydive in the Carolinas from 17,500ft
  • Up to 80 seconds of freefall, nearly double a normal skydive
  • Supplemental oxygen provided on plane ride to altitude

When we say “jump” and you respond “how high,” our answer is better than you can possibly imagine.

For comparison: 17,500 feet means adventure. It’s the altitude of the Mount Everest Base Camp. Go in the other direction, and you’ll be at the bottom of the South Solomon Trench by the time you reach 17,500 feet. At 17,500 feet, you’re at the extreme: not only of the envelope of the world, but of yourself. At 17,500, you’ll meet your strongest, bravest self.

Your 17,500-foot high-altitude tandem jump will pair you with one of our eminently professional, experienced Tandem Instructors. You’ll use supplemental oxygen in the plane, then bail out for up to 80 jaw-dropping seconds of freefall (double that of a normal skydive!)

Piedmont Skydiving is proud to offer this truly once-in-a-lifetime experience for just $379. Offer only available on weekends, April-October. Must reserve with a minimum group size of at least two participants.

So: when we say “jump,” what’s your answer?

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. Both of us had a great experience! Thomas especially made our first jump fun and enjoyable. All the staff were professional and competent, and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone for their first skydiving experience!
