first timers

Skydiving is an exhilarating experience that is sure to be unforgettable. If you’re thinking about taking the leap for the first time, look no further. At Skydive Raleigh our experienced and certified instructors will guide you through every step of the process, making your first skydiving experience as safe and enjoyable as possible. The first step in your skydiving journey will begin with a quick weigh-in since weight and balance on an aircraft are critical. Following your weigh-in you’ll watch a brief video by the United States Parachute Association and then we’ll complete any paperwork and on-site video sales that may be needed. Next is your pre-jump briefing with one of our certified tandem instructors. Here, you’ll learn about the equipment you’ll be using, the basics of freefall and parachute deployment, emergency procedures and how to communicate with your instructor. Once you’ve completed the training session, it’s time to gear up and head to the aircraft. The flight to altitude is a beautiful experience in itself, with breathtaking views of the surrounding area. As you reach altitude, your instructor will give you a final reminder of the most important aspects of your earlier training; then, it’s time to jump!
