For the first timer, the Parachute Center offers an Introductory Jump for $100.00. The Introductory Jump will give you an overall look at the sport. It includes all equipment, training, plane ride, and a freefall jump with a specially trained Instructor. The jump is from 13,000 feet and will give you 60 seconds of freefall (approximately two miles), and a five minute descent under a specially designed parachute.
Weight is an important factor on the tandem jump. If you weigh over 200 pounds, there is a service charge of $1.00 per pound for every pound over 200. If you are 215 pounds and under, you will still go to the top altitude, if you are over 215 pounds, the jump is from 6,000 feet with a shorter freefall time, but you will still have a five minute descent under the parachute. The Introductory Jump will introduce you to the sport in the safest possible environment under the direct supervision of your Instructor.
