Skydiving Detroit

Tandem Skydiving and Free Fall From 14,000' in the Sky Over Ray, Michigan

About This Experience

General Information hide

Get ready to experience the thrill of a lifetime during this Tandem Skydiving Freefall only 40 miles north of Detroit. Your sky diving adventure begins with a 30 minute introduction to the sport and safety aspects of Tandem Skydiving. Then, it’s time to get ready to take the skies and soar over two miles above sea level!

Once the instructional session is complete you will suit-up and hop on the plane for a 20 minute flight to the Drop Zone and an altitude of 12,000 feet. Prior to the Tandem Skydive, you will be harnessed to your Certified Instructor as you get ready to exit the aircraft. Finally, get ready for an unbelievable 40-50 second freefall.

At an altitude of 5,000 feet, your Flight Instructor will deploy the parachute so that you can gently glide back to earth under the canopy built for two. During your five minute descent, you will be able to help steer the canopy toward a landing back at the dropzone where your friends will be awaiting your arrival.

This airborne activity in Southeast Michigan is an amazing experience for anyone looking for a daring adventure and makes a great gift for any occasion.
