Rapid Descent offers several options for skydiving instruction along side an experienced staff of instructors, pilots, packers and ground personal and we use nothing less than first class equipment. The atmosphere here is professional but still very fun! Safety and thorough training are our primary objectives, they are best accomplished in an entertaining yet relaxed environment. Where you feel comfortable which makes learning easy and fun! Our instructors have worked very hard in an effort to create a syllabus with training aides that is second to none. We are a USPA (United States Parachute Association) drop zone and therefore follow the basic training progression outlined in the SIM (Skydiving Information Manual). The sport of skydiving requires a lot of confidence; and confidence comes from proper training and experience. Rapid Descent is an excellent choice for both!
Rapid Descent Skydiving has great instructors who are up to date on safety and procedures that change as the Sport of Skydiving grows. A Tandem is your very first skydive, you have an instructor strapped to your back to insure everything is done necessary to be able to jump again. Our Instructors are safety based but know how to have fun. We also offer Video of your Tandem by our staff videographer, he captures your entire experience with us so you can relive the thrill over and over. Everyone who jumps with Rapid Descent must start with a Tandem, we feel it is important to experience jumping out of a plane with assistance before doing it on your own.
The Accelerated Free Fall program is our primary skydiving training method at Rapid Descent. This program takes you, as a student, right into the heart of skydiving with two instructors at your side. Confidence and proper techniques are instilled right from the start, unlike other training methods that were used in the past. Most students prefer the AFF training anyway, it is shorter and exciting! We do love to have fun.
