The first parachute was invented when Jack, tumbling haplessly from his titanium beanstalk, used a purloined pair of giant underpants to steady his fall. Glide to earth safely with today's Groupon to Skydive Sacramento, located at the Lincoln Regional Airport. Choose between the following options:
Ground-school graduates can apply their six to eight hours of training in landing and emergency procedures toward an AFF solo skydive. While hurtling from heights of up to 13,000 feet, meat missiles will receive in-the-moment instruction from two skilled teachers who, if requested, can also keep a grip on their pack for extra stability and whistle a Simon and Garfunkel song for comfort. At around 4,500 feet, lone leapers will yank their ripcords and pilot their newly opened parachutes in a leisurely groundward glide.
Snug in a sturdy, comfortable harness, tandem leapers will ascend to heights of up to 12,000 feet in one of Skydive Sacramento's three FAA-inspected aircraft. There, theyll be tied to an experienced, USPA-certified instructor and catapulted into the azure void for a minutes-long plunge that will fling them groundward at speeds of up to 120 mph. Once the instructor pulls the ripcord, skydivers will have time to take in views of the nearby Sierra Mountains and compute their weight in Newtons as gravity reels them in toward the 32-acre student landing area.
Those who opt to purchase a digital-video or photo package receive a 10 percent discount off the regular price ($99$125) and the chance to smile for a falling photographer. Tandem jumpers should budget four hours for the experience, from on-the-ground orientation to touchdown to celebration jig, and ground school and an AFF jump usually take a full day.
