Do you want to make a skydive?

Tandem Skydiving is the safest introductory way to make a skydive! All our instructors are USPA rated tandem masters with 15+ years of experience.  Your safety is our primary concern.

We are located just outside of Norwich NY.  We are located at the Lt Warren Eaton Airport.

We offer tandem skydiving for the first time jumper, advanced training for those that want to get their license, and fun jumping for licensed jumpers.

Our goal is to make your jump as enjoyable and exhilarating as we can.   

For licensed skydivers, we have two large grass  landing areas.  We welcome all disciplines, including classic accuracy, wing suits, crew, and relative work.

We start at 10AM, and welcome "walk ins" on the weekend.  Midweek by appt only.


Handcam example

We offer two different video / picture options.  This is an example of what handcam (or others refer to as personal perspective) video would  look like.  The camera is worn and operated by your tandem skydive instructor.
We also offer the option to have both handcam and outside video done by arrangement.  You don't need to make your choice today, we can add this at the time of your jump if you choose to capture the jump on film.

Outside perspective video

These are pictures taken from a videographer that will jump along side of you during freefall.  We capture video and pictures of your freefall.  This will also include pictures prior to takeoff, and your landing.

Together we have over 9000 jumps, and have been jumping together for about  20 years.  We started jumping in 2002, and have never stopped.

We both are USPA Tandem Masters, coaches and IAD instructors.  

This is our passion, not our "job", and our goal is to try to make you love the sport as much as we do.

He is often found training in classic accuracy, and continues to compete in National And World events.
