2. Solo Skydiving in Eloy
Skydive Arizona in Eloy, known for being the Disneyland for skydiving, is notorious for its thrilling and safe tandem jumping experience for skydiving first-timers. However, people often think the only way to do a solo skydive is by getting a skydiving license. They are often unaware of the solo jumping experience through the Accelerated Skydiving Program (ASP).
This program includes a tandem jump, a 10 minute tunnel experience and 6 hours of jump school. After this short training, students can then jump from 13,000 feet with two instructors on each side. This allows divers to wear their own parachute and pull the chute on their own. If jumping tandem doesn’t seem to satisfy your adrenaline craving needs, this alternative option could be the choice for you!
