Is there a way to record the skydiving jump?

Absolutely! Skydiving Near New York City offers video packages that will record your entire skydiving adventure, from plane ride to landing. Our network videographers will get a small interview with you right before boarding the plane and during the climb to altitude. The videographer will exit the airplane with you and record your entire skydiving adventure on video! The videographer will also land prior to you to ensure that your landing is captured on tape, as well.

Are video cameras allowed?

We encourage you to bring your own camera and shoot some pictures, or possibly video, from the ground. Cameras are not to be brought onto the airplane before your skydiving jump.

Exactly what height and speed will the plane reach for the skydive?

Wind, weather, and other factors contribute here. The majority of the time, tandem skydives occur at a maximum elevation of 14,000 feet. As you are falling, your speeds will reach as high as 120 miles per hour.

Could all of my group jump all at once?

For the most part, we do our best to guarantee you have the best possible group to dive with. You may have the ability to jump all together, but consider a few factors first. There is a very quick delay in between you and each skydiver from the plane, which means that you may not freefall and canopy ride at the same time. A few of our jumpers choose to go on different turns so that they can see their friends freefall then land on the ground.

What if a friend or family member does not want to jump?

You are more than welcome to bring family and friends to watch your skydiving adventure. They can stay on the ground and watch the entire skydiving jump from the viewing area. Non-jumpers are not permitted on the aircraft at any time.
