  ISP -Tandem Program

If after your initial tandem (discovery of flight), you decide to learn skydiving, please find the details below.

Tandem jumps introduce students into the solo training programs. The instructor is the pilot in command of the shared parachute so the training time is considerably less than the methods where the student is wearing his own parachute.

Once you start the program, you have to have less than 30 days in between your jumps. If more than 30days, then you will have to redo the previous level.

Category A : 1st working Tandem

Jump # 1 (10,000 ft)                         $175.00
