- Exit at 4,000 feet
- Fly your parachute
- Day you'll never forget!
Can my family and friends watch my IAD jump?
Yes! There is lots of room for them to hang-out and watch
before, during and after your jump. Keep in mind that before your first IAD
jump, you'll be in a class for 4-6 hours. Your family and friends may not want
to arrive when you do. Once they get to the drop zone there will be plenty for
your family to watch. Most of the time there are experienced jumpers preparing
for formation skydives called Relative Work. The jumpers will be planning their
aerial maneuvers by walking through the moves on the ground. After the jumpers
get on the plane and take off, it'll take about twenty minutes before they are
jumping out of the plane. Some people can see the skydivers leaving the plane.
About a minute later, the parachute deployments will be visible and they can
watch all the colorful parachutes land in our huge landing area.
After you are "geared-up" and ready to skydive, there will be a chance to snap
some pre-jump pictures. Your instructor will go over your skydive one more time
before you get on the plane. You'll board the plane in front of the hanger.
Because the IAD jump is made from 4,000 feet, your friends and family will
be able to see you as soon as you exit the airplane.
After your parachute descent you will land in the same area as the experienced jumps.
Your family and friends should have a good line of sight view to where you'll
land. If you are having fun, let them know as you fly overhead. After you are
back on the ground, you'll have a chance for a quick picture with the biggest
smile on your face!
