» When you were a child did you dream about sitting at home on the couch?
No? So, why don't you get off the couch and start living life instead of letting life pass you by. Tandem Skydiving is the easiest, safest, and by far the most popular way to make your first skydive.
There is nothing like sitting on the edge of an airplane with the roar of the engine and the wind in your face. You have not truly experienced life until you have made that first step off the airplane.
» I was scared in the plane. But when I jumped out…
You look around and see small specks realizing cars look like tiny ants. All you can think is, "Why did I ever sign up to skydive?" then I realized…
I had my professional instructor with me every step of the way. Even though danger is part of the point in making a skydive, you can have confidence in knowing that Mike and Jeff are two of the top instructors in the skydive business. With combined total of over 20,000 skydives and 30 years in the sport, these guys have experienced it all.
After being in free fall I started to look around and I realized I was having the best time of my life! I would not have wanted my first jump to have been with anyone else.

» Everyone thought I was crazy when I said I was going skydiving… But then I showed them my video…
Now all my friends and family are jealous of me actually living life. This was an amazing experience that changed my life. I was going through med school when I did my first jump when I learned about my instructors stories.
Mike was a successful banker when he first started to skydive. He quickly began to realize after staring out his office window that he would rather be skydiving instead of sitting behind a desk all day. So he quit his job to start living life and became a full time skydiving instructor. Jeff graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in accounting. He realized throughout school that sitting indoors day after day was not living life.
Thanks to Mike and Jeff I have also come to realize what it is really like to live life.

» About Tandem Skydiving
Tandem Skydiving gives you a total introduction to skydiving from the ground up. Securely attached to one of our highly qualified and USPA licensed tandem instructors via a dual harness system, you will experience the ride of your life!
We can have you in the air after a short training class on exiting the aircraft and free fall body position. Interestingly enough, as you and your instructor take to the skies upon exiting our airplane up to 11,000 feet you will have the sensation of being on your own as you accelerate to over 130 mph. After the parachute opens your instructor will be on hand to offer guidance as you fly the parachute together.
A tandem jump is a great way to experience the thrill of skydiving with the security and the close supervision of a highly experienced instructor.
» Look out your office window, what do you see… a brick wall? a parked car?
Look out our office window, you can see all the Finger Lakes, Lake Ontario, Syracuse, and on a really clear day Rochester, and clear across Lake Ontario to Canada.
