Nervous About Your First Time Skydiving?

Everyone..and I mean everyone is nervous when making their first skydive. It is normal and expected. No Limits Skydiving takes thousands of people on their first skydive, and we specialize in first time jumpers. Our entire business is catered to Tandem Skydives and First Time Students. As the owner of  No Limits Skydiving, I have been involved with skydiving for most of my adult life. The biggest adventure in skydiving is being a part of someones first jump. We are able to show them the adventure of skydiving, we are with them the first time they step out of a perfectly good airplane and we are there when they experience a new thrill.

When I first become an instructor we were all the aspects of the equipment and safety. No one teaches you how to calm a first time skydiver down so they can enjoy the jump. It is something you learn with years and years of teaching. All of the instructors at No Limits Skydiving are Full Time Skydivers. This is our profession. We make it our job to read people and determine how to keep them calm before we take that first step.

Is Tandem Skydiving For Me?

We get asked many times about if people back out once they get in the plane. Of course some do. Some people decide when they are in the plane that skydiving is not for them. That is not a problem because skydiving is not for everyone and we understand that. I can only tell you that we take the time to talk to our students and assure them that they are attached to us and we will take care of them. Your job is to relax and enjoy the view.

The worst part is sitting in the plane on the ride up, the anticipation of the skydive is the worst part. Once we leave the plane then all your nerves will leave you. I promise! I have made over 11,000 jumps and I promise you that your nerves leave once we are in free fall.  Here is a great article about ways of performing under pressure. Please take a look and see what you think.

We hope to see you at one of our locations soon for your first skydive.  As the owner of No Limits Skydiving, I skydive all the time. I am the only owner of a skydiving school in Virginia that still takes students on their first skydive. Come join me soon.
