1. Getting Ready

We will provide instruction which consists of watching a video follow by one-on-one training with an our experienced United States Parachute Association certified instructor.  The training takes about 15 to 30 minutes and after you will get suited up in the harness along with goggles and altimeter.  Have your friend or family take photos at the plane and then we board. Once on the plane you will sit on benches in front of your instructor and he will get you completely hooked to him up and secure you with a seat belt.

2. Take off / In the plane

Feel the force of takeoff from our grass strip in our High performance aircraft specifically modified and approved by the FAA for this purpose.  During the climb to altitude enjoy the fresh air and views of the Missouri river, Herman Wine country, on good days see as far as Jefferson City, Mark Twain Lake, and even the Mississippi River.  Approaching the Jump altitude your instructor will give you another equipment check and review everything that will happen on your skydive.

3. Green light /Ready to Skydive

The Jump light will turn red letting you know that it is 1 minute from the exit point.  Your family and friends waiting for you will also hear the pilot announce the 1 minute from jumpers over the radio so they can look skyward and if their eyes are good enough they can see the plane.  In the plane you put on your goggles and prepare for the light to turn green.  At the green light it is as easy as swinging your feet out the door.  Sitting on the edge of the plane you feel the wind rushing by and smile big for the camera!  Out you go on your first Skydive. Look around and enjoy the view, smile at the camera then check your altimeter and Pull the Ripcord after up to 55 seconds of free fall.

5. After the Jump

After your jump we will remove your equipment and everyone can go into the lounge to watch your video.  Your instructor will present you with with your Skydiving Log book with your first jump in it.  If you ever decide to jump again with us or any other Skydiving facility take your log book with you.  With us you had the altimeter, pulled the ripcord and flew the parachute all the way in for landing.  This was not just a ride, you were earning your way to your Skydiving Licence.
