What it’s Like to Tandem Skydive as a Career

One of the hardest things in life is deciding what you want to be when you grow up. I never in a million years would have thought it possible I could get paid to jump from airplanes.  If someone had told me when I was 16 that I’m going to be a professional skydiver, I would have thought they were crazy.

The first time I stepped out of an airplane I knew that I had found my passion. To be able to turn that passion into a career has been beyond amazing. I cant tell you how many times I have heard from customers how lucky I am to be a professional skydiver. I always love to hear that because it makes me know how much they loved their skydive with us.

Full-Time Skydivers

As much as I love skydiving, I love being able to share the sky with first time jumpers even more. Everyone who works at No Limits Skydiving is a Full Time Skydiver. This is our job and career. Some skydiving schools in Virginia are only open on weekends, so they use part time instructors.  All of our Tandem Instructors are full time. Jumping from airplanes is the way we make our living and we want to share our office with you!

Check out this great blog by James La Berrie about working in the skydiving industry. Thought I would share it with you as it gives another perspective from a professional skydiver. We are living proof that they say “If you do what you love, then you never work a day in your life.”

Come join us at our office in the sky soon.
