$199 will give you your first jump! A USPA-rated tandem instructor will take you to
12-14,000 feet above the ground and accompany you on the thrill of a lifetime.
Go to the spectator area at the Convention (outside the airport) with your money
and a good pair of sneakers (no sandals, combat boots, or platform sneakers).
What's involved, you ask? You must be 18 years of age or older and don't forget
to bring your ID. You should weigh no more than 220 lbs. (or, if you are a
physically fit person who weighs more than that, there is a possibility we can
accommodate you.) Please call to check. If you have a medical condition that
requires a doctor's permission in order to jump, please bring that certificate
Allow a half-day for the jump. We must give you some training and get your paperwork
signed. Last year (2005), we made almost 500 tandem jumps with first-time jumpers
like you! Come during the week for a faster turnaround time, as we are very busy
on the weekends.
You should consider capturing the event on video! For an additional $79, you will
have a skydiver with a video camera and a still camera mounted on his helmet
accompanying you. They will capture on video and stills the entire process:
your gearing up, the actual freefall, your landing, and your interview afterwards.
You will be able to take the video and stills with you that same day! Show your
family and friends what you accomplished!
The tandem operation at the Convention has a full-time staff of 10 tandem instructosr,
as well as 4 full-time video persons. We hope to see you at the 2006 World FreeFall
Convention!! For more information, call (217) AAA-JUMP - (217) 222-5867.
