Tandem Skydive!

Tandem jump lets you experience the thrill and beauty of skydiving with the security of an instructor right there with you.  They are great for jumpers looking for the biggest thrill with the smallest time and money investment.  

During ground training, you are taught normal and emergency procedures for all aspects of the jump - climb to altitude, exit, opening, canopy control, and landing. You are then shown the equipment so that you understand how it works.

After a brief explanation of maneuvers by a Tandem Instructor, you will ride in one of our planes to 10,000 feet. Securely attached to a highly skilled instructor, you will freefall for up to 45 seconds, followed by five to six minutes of gentle and scenic gliding to the Texas Skydiving drop zone.  

Tandem jumps can be scheduled all throughout the day, almost any day of the week.

Jump Requirements

Jumpers must be:  

  • under 250 pounds
  • Height / weight proportionate

When you come out to Texas Skydiving, we want you to be as comfortable as possible for a safe and fun jump.  Wear comfortable, athletic clothing, including tennis shoes.  A good rule of thumb is to dress as though you were playing a game of frisbee at the park.  Don't worry about bringing anything special - all skydiving gear will be provided here!

Want More?

You can make several tandem skydives, learning more about freefall and the parachute on each jump.  If you want to keep skydiving, you may want to join in the Solo Freefall program.  You can use these jumps to merge into the program at Level 3.  There is a price discount for those who have made tandem skydives.  


This place is wonderful and so fun! This was my first time ever skydiving so naturally we did a tandem jump with DAVID. He was so nice, very laid back, gave great (and very quick) instructions before the jump, and genuinely just wanted us to have a good time, and we certainly did!
