Ready for the next step in your skydiving adventure? Whether you’re ready to take tandem up a notch with the highest skydive in the Carolinas or learn to fly solo through our Accelerated Freefall Program, we can help you take things to the next level!

Learn to Skydive with our Accelerated Freefall Progression Program

Time to kick off your tandem training wheels? Our Accelerated Freefall Progression Program is designed to put you on the fast-track to being able to skydive solo. The program consists of ground training, tandem jumps, training jumps with our experienced professionals, and supervised solo jumps.

The 16-jump program starts with two tandem skydives to help you get your bearings in the new environment. From there, it emphasizes strong freefall and canopy skills, a procedural approach to the high-stakes environment of a skydive and one-on-one tutelage by our team of experienced skydiving instructors. All jumps are video recorded for thorough, immediate feedback.

    I would highly recommend this place. My guy was super enthusiastic which made everything 10x better. I don't have any … More fear of skydiving so I wasn't scared at all to jump but I'm sure anyone who would be, would instantly feel way more comfortable. They all know what they're doing, they're very safe and friendly and really funny. I still can't get over how much fun it was, and how addicting it is. Absolute 10/10, I've been telling people they need to go to Piedmont Skydiving ever since my jump.

    Had an amazing first experience! Allen was an incredible, easy going, fun, and safe instructor. My uncle and I enjoyed every … More second of it. I would recommend going in the summer so it isn’t 20 degrees when you jump out. That wind hits your face HARD! Overall it was amazing, and I can’t wait to be back!

    This was the best experience of my life! The instructors are amazing and well informed, very hospitable and full of energy. … More It was hard to be nervous when they all stayed so positive and encouraging! I will be jumping again!
