Perfect Timing

Posted by

You’ve simply never seen such a crystal-clear blue. Jumpers wait for the entire year-round for the season we now find ourselves enjoying, and it’s the absolute perfect time for you to make your first jump! 

“But wait” you say… “isn’t it starting to get a bit too cold to jump?”  Simply put, no! And that’s a common misconception you can put to your advantage! 

There are quite a few obvious benefits to jumping for the first time during the fall, and even a few you may not have thought of, but let’s get the imagined reason not to jump out of the way. Dealing with the cooler temperatures of this season is literally as simple as putting on your fleece, a pair of jeans and if you’d like, wearing a pair of our gloves for your jump; and if we’re being completely honest, you’ll be so excited as you step into the blue that being cold is literally the last thing you’ll be thinking about!

Sure, as we move into fall temperatures have dropped, but that’s a good thing for many reasons! 

  • First and foremost, you won’t be standing around nervous and sweating waiting for your turn to jump! Summer days bring with them lots of jumpers and a fair bit more waiting time on the ground. As people’s attentions turn toward other activities you get to take advantage of some of the best jumps of the year! 
  • The air quality this time of year can be noticeably better, with views stretching out miles further than in the haze of full-blown summer. You simply won’t believe just how far you’ll be able to see, all without having to peer out through a little airline window!
  • The colors… There is nothing like seeing fall colors while, well… falling! It’s breathtaking! Of all the seasons, this is the one that grabs the attention.

With all the wonderful advantages that come with making your first skydive this time of year we only have one question to ask… What on earth are you waiting for?
