Everything you need to know about Skydive Shenandoah
how it works
the ground prep
Next, you will be geared up and fitted with a state of the art harness system designed specifically for tandem skydiving and will then board a customized aircraft with your instructor. On the climb to altitude, you will enjoy captivating views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, historic battle grounds, the Shenandoah Valley, and all the beauty Virginia has to offer.
In freefall, have fun with your video! Smiles, funny faces, and general shenanigans are encouraged!
This is your experience and we’re here to make it as memorable as we can.
It’s your time to shine – get your smiles ready and geek the camera.
the parachute ride
When it’s time to deploy your parachute, the next part of the skydive begins. During a scenic 5-7 minute canopy ride back to the landing zone you will literally feel on top of the world as your instructor guides you to the ground. You can wave to your family and friends waiting in the spectator area as your instructor lands the parachute system. Before your feet even touch the ground, you’ll be anticipating your next jump.
frequently asked questions
What to bring?
Photo ID showing date of birth.
does weather prevent skydiving?
Skydiving is a weather dependent sport. Although you may feel it’s okay to jump, often times high winds, turbulence, clouds, or other weather related factors are hard to predict or understand to the untrained eye, and we’ll often err on the side of caution for safety.
have glasses or contacts?
Goggles will be supplied for your skydive that cover glasses and contacts.
what to wear?
Dress in comfortable clothes for the day with closed toed shoes. Great attire are cargo, hiking or yoga pants and lace up sneakers. Lastly, leave your favorite jewelry at home.
any fitness requirements?
There are a few fitness considerations when jumping from a plane. First, you’ll need to be at least 18 years of age and weigh less than 230 pounds*. Then, you’ll need to be able to sit in a small, intimate space in the aircraft, lift your legs up to get in and out of the plane and and lift your legs for landing.
