About This Experience

General Information hide

Leap from a plane and experience the thrill of skydiving all on your own! After a six hour ground training on safety and equipment at the Heber Airpark, you will be taken up to 4000 feet in a Cessna, a light aircraft. Once briefed, suited up and ready you will take the plunge.

The jump itself consists of a simple "poised" exit from the strut of the plane. As you fall away, the main canopy is deployed by a "static line" attached to the aircraft. You will experience approximately two to three seconds of falling as the parachute opens. After your parachute opens you will enjoy a scenic ride to the landing site in the center of Airway Meadows Saratoga Springs Golf Course

So take the plunge and experience freefalling about an hour from Albany, New York with this truly unforgettable gift!
