Learning the Ropes

Tandem training at Skydive Springfield is a vital yet straightforward process. It begins with comprehensive ground practice until you feel comfortable. The training session covers an overview of the tandem skydiving equipment, including the main and reserve parachutes, alongside an Automatic Activation Device (AAD) for emergency situations. Instruction includes aircraft exit techniques, body positioning during freefall, canopy flight, and safe landing procedures. Once training is completed, it's time to gear up and suit up for the jump.

Gearing Up & Taking Off

Preparation for the tandem skydive involves getting suited up with official skydiving jumpsuits or comfortable attire like jeans and a t-shirt. Your instructor ensures the harness fits snugly over your clothes and adjusts it accordingly. Before boarding the plane, there's an interview session filmed to capture your excitement and thoughts. The scenic airplane flight offers breathtaking views of Bolivar, Missouri, the Ozarks, Stockton Lake, Pomme de Terre, and Springfield's skyline. Mentally preparing for the jump during the ascent is encouraged before the thrilling moment of exit arrives.

The Skydiving Experience: From Jumping to Landing

Exiting the aircraft involves a coordinated effort between you and your instructor. Once positioned at the door, the pilot's signal initiates the exit sequence, and your instructor guides you through the exhilarating experience of skydiving. The freefall phase emphasizes maintaining a stable body position to facilitate a clean parachute deployment. Following the parachute's opening, the experience transitions from an adrenaline rush to a serene canopy ride. Upon landing back at the airport, a review session helps capture and reinforce the vivid memories of your tandem jump.
