Tandem Skydiving | Virginia | Skydive Suffolk


A tandem jump is the simplest way to enjoy the thrill of skydiving!


Your adventure begins after you watch a short video, fill out some paperwork, and then a USPA-certified tandem instructor takes you through a brief training session. You will then board the aircraft and ascend to 13,500 feet! (A lot of Drop Zones don't take you to that height, but we do!) 

You and your instructor will jump out of the plane harnessed together in a special parachute system built for two people.


You will fall for almost a minute and reach speeds up to 120 mph. After the parachute opens you will glide through the sky towards the earth for 5-7 minutes! Land back on the ground, get unstrapped from your instructor, and ride that adrenaline high for the next week!

What is included?

-Safety and jump training with certified tandem instructor

-Custom jump certificate

-Use of Skydive Suffolk gear, including jumpsuit and goggles

-15 minute plane ride to 13,500 ft

-The thrill of a lifetime with memories to share!
