Get ready for the most exciting time of your life! Skydiving offers you the opportunity to live life to its fullest. The Tennessee Skydiving experience is like no other! At TSC you will be accompanied on your skydive by the most enthusiastic skydive professionals in Tennessee skydiving! Use the information provided below to choose
which first jump you wish to make at TSC.

*To make any skydive you must be at least 18 years of age and weigh 285 lbs or less.


Tandem Skydiving is the most popular first jump as it requires a minimal amount of training (less than an hour), while maintaining a high degree of safety. You are attached to the front of your instructor's harness for the entire skydive and parachute ride. Your jump will include 70 seconds of freefall, followed by a canopy ride that lasts anywhere from 7 to 9 minutes. You will be encouraged to steer the parachute. Should you request, you may also do flips and turns (steer yourself) in freefall! We highly recommend this method of enjoying your first skydive!


AFF is the most advanced method of training individuals to skydive. Before your first jump you will attend a 4 to 6 hour training class that will teach you the fundamentals of skydiving. Your jump is made in the company of two USPA rated AFF Jump masters who provide direct assistance during the exit and freefall. You will have the opportunity to deploy your pilot chute, which will release your main canopy. Once your parachute is deployed, you will (with radio assistance) control a solo parachute descent back to the drop zone.


To make your first Jump, wear casual clothes suitable for outdoor activity at the temperatures forecast for the day. For the warm months, shorts or jeans, lightweight shirt, and tennis shoes are fine. In the winter we jump in temperatures as low as the mid 30's on the ground. The airplanes are heated, a sweatshirt or long sleeve warm shirt, jeans, lightweight gloves, and tennis shoes are usually sufficient. On all your student training jumps TSC will provide a jumpsuit, goggles, headgear, and altimeter.

We encourage you to bring your friends, cameras, and picnic lunches. Children are welcome if they are supervised while you are making your jumps. Unlike many other skydiving facilities your pets are welcome!!!
