As long as we are open and the weather is above VFR (Visual Flight Rules) and safe minimums. Clouds, rain and wind may cause some delays depending on the severity.

What if my parachute doesn’t open?

By FAA regulation, all intentional parachute jumps must be made with a single harness, dual parachute system with both a main and a secondary, or reserve, parachute. Basically, if one doesn’t work, you have another one. The reserve parachutes are inspected and repacked every 180 days by an FAA-certified rigger whether they’ve been used or not.

What if something happens to my instructor?

Our tandem gear is equipped with an AAD (Automatic Activation Device) which will deploy the reserve parachute at a preset altitude.
