People choose to jump from a perfectly good airplane for many reasons. Birthdays and anniversaries are definitely the top ones. One of the things I hear from people in my 29 years of skydiving is that they want to jump to help them get over their fear of heights. We actually get this all the time. Now, I have no idea if this actually works, but we are more than happy to take you for your first tandem skydive to find out!
You are so high up when you leave the plane that it’s totally different than standing on a ladder. You really don’t get the uncomfortable sensation of falling since you are so high above the ground. Sometimes we pass clouds in free-fall, and I will say to myself “Wow… I am falling pretty fast here!”
With tandem jumps, we pull the cord at 5,000 feet up so that you avoid the ground rush effect. We do all the work while you get to take in the beautiful scenery of Virginia! I have no idea if skydiving will help get over your fear of heights, but I do know that when you land from a skydive you pretty much feel like James Bond, even if it’s just for a few minutes. Don’t you want to feel like James Bond (or maybe Jane Bond)?
