Skydive Philadelphia highly recommends this method for your first skydive. Tandem skydives require the least amount of training (usually less than an hour), and maintain the highest degree of safety. Your instructor will be with you through the entire skydive and parachute ride. Your jump will include approximately 70 seconds of freefall, followed by a canopy ride that lasts anywhere from 7 to 9 minutes. Should
you request it, you may also assist in steering the parachute.

AFF is the most advanced method of training to become certified to skydive on your own. Before your first jump you will attend a 4 to 6 hour training class that will teach you the fundamentals of skydiving. Your jump is made in the company of two USPA
rated AFF Jump masters who provide direct assistance during the exit and freefall. You will have the opportunity to deploy your pilot chute, which will release your main canopy. Once your parachute is deployed, you will (with radio assistance) control a solo parachute descent back to the drop zone.
