What to Expect on the Day of Your Jump!
After you arrive at Sky’s the Limit and sign in, you’ll watch a short video that will educate you about the type of skydive you are about to make. This is followed by a short training session to familiarize you with tandem skydiving procedures. Then you and your experienced tandem instructor will gear up in a tandem skydiving system that is exclusively designed for two people.
Now that you are geared up, it’s time to board the aircraft. Our aircrafts are larger than you’ll find at most other skydiving facilities, making for a more comfortable ride to a higher altitude. Our planes carry up to 23 jumpers, so getting on the same plane with your friends is almost never a problem at Sky’s the Limit.
On the ride up to altitude, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Pocono Mountains, Delaware Water Gap and New York City skyline. Watch the experienced jumpers prepare for their skydives, or figure out how to look cool for your in-flight interview. We offer picture and video packages too! With the purchase of one of these packages, a professional skydiving videographer will film you during your flight as you prepare for your first jump!
You will exit the plane with your instructor and feel the thrill of free fall at 120 miles per hour. Your skydiving videographer is right there with you, catching every moment on video. You’ll freefall for up to 60 seconds or more before the instructor deploys the parachute. You’ll be amazed at how quiet it is as you steer your tandem parachute and fly it down to a soft landing with the help of your tandem instructor.
After you have completed your 1st Skydive you will receive a certificate of your accomplishment. If you purchased the DVD or the DVD and digital photograph package you’ll receive your disks of your skydive for you to continue enjoying the memories of your skydive.
