Skydiving in California
For over 20 years Skydive Taft has been thrilling people with the ride of their life! A tandem skydive starts from two miles above the Earth, into the blue skies above our beautiful Central California Valley then roars earthward at 120 mph before transforming into a leisurely float down under a big canopy enjoying a bird’s eye view (literally) of the mountains all the way to the sea.
Skydive Taft’s highly trained instructors make your experience extremely safe as well as mind blowing!
Visiting Skydive Taft is a fabulous family day out. Whether you’re in the sky having the experience of a lifetime, or on the ground watching the colorful canopies flying around while enjoying a picnic lunch on the grass, there’s always a lot to see, do and talk about as you immerse yourself in the exhilarating world of skydiving.
The minimum age to skydive is 16 and the maximum age is well as long as you are in good health, you can jump! Skydive Taft recently hosted the birthday jumps of an 85 year old grandmother!
Is work getting you down? Family stresses piling up? Come and leave it all behind – jumping out of an airplane will make you look at the world in a whole new way. The smile won’t leave your face for days!
We are currently offering a discount on tandems for only $160 each!
Tandem skydive allows first-time jumpers to experience the thrill and excitement of the sport without the preparation and knowledge required for a solo jump. It only takes 20 minutes of training after which you will free-fall harnessed to a highly skilled instructor from over two miles above the Earth, reaching speeds of up to 120 miles an hour. At the safe altitude of 5,000 feet the instructor will deploy the main chute. If you choose, you can activate the parachute yourself, and then take in the view of the San Joaquin Valley on your way down. The Tranquil six minute parachute ride will allow plenty of time to practice landing techniques insuring a soft landing.

Accelerated Free Fall:
A four to six hour ground school prepares you for your first AFF jump. You will jump from over two miles above the earth accompanied by two jumpmasters while wearing your own parachute system. After approximately one minute of free-fall, you will pull your ripcord and fly your parachute coached by an instructor over the radio. This program involves seven levels of instruction. After you have completed your AFF training, our coaching program can continue with your “A” license.
