First Time Skydiving

Tandem Skydiving Atlanta

Ready to Take the Leap?

If you know jumping out of a plane is for you and you’ve never done it before, then a first time tandem skydive is a great place to start skydiving Atlanta immediately! Tandem skydiving is our most popular skydiving opportunity that allows guests from 18 to 80 (and in some cases beyond that!) to experience 60 seconds of freefall exiting at an altitude of 14,000 feet. You will share a tandem skydiving harness with one of our professional instructors who will show you why birds fly! At approximately 5,500 feet your instructor will deploy the main parachute allowing you to take in the surrounding views while skydiving Atlanta with approximately five minutes of peaceful flying.
