Whenever you come in, we'll have you sign a couple of documents as a legal waiver. You'll need to be at least 18 years of age to authorize this lawfully binding agreement, which is mandatory when skydiving in Reading. This requirement applies to all those jumping in Reading, Illinois and our other locations in the US.
How much it costs to skydive depends upon the type of jump you book. If you want the most economical option for skydiving in Reading, we recommend tandem skydiving. What you pay also depends on present gas rates as well as the time of year. To obtain specific prices, feel free to give our location a call for more details.
Reading Skydiving's video packages provide the very best recording options available. As a part of the package, our videographers will carry out a short conversation with you just before you get on the plane and on the aircraft as you ascend. Then, the videographer dives with you to allow them to capture the entire skydiving experience. To record those last minutes of landing, the videographer will ground first.
You can use your own video camera on the ground and let your friends use it when you jump. You can not, though, bring your personal digital camera on board the plane or videotape your skydiving jump yourself.
The level of wind and the general weather elements contribute in how high we'll ascend for your jump. Most of the time, tandem skydives happen at a maximum height of 14,000 feet. As you are falling, your speeds will grow as high as 120 miles per hour.
We help you to make sure you have the group of people you prefer together, whenever possible. You might be able to jump together, but think about a couple of factors first. It is important to understand that there is a quick delay in between jumpers from the airplane, which means that you may not be able to freefall or parachute ride down together. We will do our best to meet any request you and your group may have. There is a small delay in between each jumper so skydiving on the same airplane load as your friends doesn't mean you will be next to them during the freefall and canopy ride. Some couples and groups would rather go on separate loads so they can see their loved ones freefall and landing from the ground.
You are more than welcome to bring family and friends to watch your skydiving jump. They can stay on the ground and watch the entire skydiving jump from the viewing area. Non-jumpers are not permitted on the plane at any time.
