Frequently Asked Questions About Our Skydiving School

Q: Why Skydive? A: Skydiving inspires such complete focus of attention that all other worries, aggravations and frustrations are forgotten. It charges you with such energy , spirit, and vitality that can be lost through years of ordinary life. The mundane world snaps back with invigorating speed. Skydiving inspires freedom of spirit and attracts some of the most interesting people on earth!

Q: Is there an age limit for skydiving? A: Yes. You must be 18 years of age to partake in any of our skydiving packages.

Q: What will the skydive feel like? A: It is nearly impossible to accurately describe. The sensation of freefall is more like flying than falling. The parachute flight is inspiring. This portion of the skydive can be anything from an exciting roller coaster type event to a quiet and inspiring flight around the open skies. Many say their skydive has been one the the greatest things that has ever happened to them. For some their skydive is life changing.

Q: What happens if the parachute doesn't open? A: In the very unlikely event that the main parachute doesn't open properly, there is a reserve parachute in the top of the container which has been inspected and packed by an FAA certified parachute rigger. All of our reserve parachutes are equipped with the most reliable and modern AAD's (Automatic Activation Device) available, the CYPRESS. (Many other Drop Zones use lower end AAD's. Always ask about this!) Adventure Skydiving Tennessee utilizes this system for your enhanced safety. This is a backup system only.

Q: How long does the skydive last? A: 45 to 60 seconds of freefall and 7 to 9 minutes under the parachute. Add that to the ride in the aircraft (12 minutes).

Q: Is there a weight limit for skydiving? A: Yes. The weight limit at our facility is 250 lbs.

Q: Can I get pictures of my skydive? A: Yes. Still photos and video packages are available upon request.

Q: How much does it cost? A: The cost varies with the type of skydive you make. We offer student, group, and military discounts. All prices are made available through our reservation line at 800-817-5867 or 1-800-817-JUMP (5867).

Testimonials
This was my first time and really wanted to jump, but at 1000 feet got scared and thought no way.........but we had the most awesome group of instructors,mine being JJ. Hands down I totally credit JJ for this beautiful and amazing experience. He made me feel 100% safe and comfortable(as you could possibly feel jumping out of a plane 14,000 feet)and most of all made it so fun. I would totally reccommend this place to anybody but most of all anyone who has some reservations. Thanks a million for the best experience of my life.

My brother said he would take me skydiving with him as an unconventional wedding gift. I have to admit that I thought a toaster would've been better as we neared 14,000 ft. in the plane. Jumping out took my breath away along with the awesome view and fun experience with Taylor, Brooklyn, and my brother Price. I returned the next day and jumped again which was even more enjoyable than the first time. I'm looking forward to going back soon!

Oh my goodness. Yes, this past weekend I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane and it was fabulous. The instructors were so friendly. It helped to have "Buddy" to hang out with while we waited to keep us relaxed. I can't wait to do it again. Thank you for the most amazing experience.
