• What should I wear?

Wear comfortable clothes that will fit under a harness (no skirts or dresses). Keep in mind it will be about 20-30 degrees colder at jump altitude than on the ground, so bring extra layers if it is a cooler day. Shorts and t-shirt are fine on a hot summer day. Preferably wear closed toe sport shoes. No sandals, flip-flops or cowboy boots.

  • When should I show up?

If you make a reservation, try to arrive at your scheduled time. We will begin everything at that time. There is no need to show up early.

  • How old do you have to be?

You must be at least 18 years old, with a photo ID, in order to skydive. You will be sent a link to the waiver after making a reservation, or [Sign Waiver Online]

  • Will the landing hurt?

Modern parachutes are very controllable. Most landings are a soft slide in on the grass like going down a slide. If there is a headwind, you can often softly land on your feet like stepping off a curb.

  • Can I bring my own GoPro?

For safety and legal reasons, you are not allowed to wear or control a camera on your tandem jump. We offer photo and video options that can do this in a safe way.

  • What if there is bad weather?

If you have a reservation, we do our best to notify you at least 2 hours before via text and email. Weather in Central Louisiana can turn quickly. As your safety and ours is top priority, we may be weathered out suddenly during the day. In any case, we can get you rescheduled for another day, if necessary.

  • How long does it last?

We jump from 12,000ft above the ground, which gives you about 45 seconds of free fall. You usually open your parachute around 5,000ft, and fly the canopy down for about 5 minutes.

  • How long does it take?

You can expect to be at cajun skydiving center for at least 2 hours. It may be less, but please allow plenty of time in your schedule to accommodate for weather or other delays.

  • How many people fit in your plane?

Our Cessna 182 can hold 4 individual jumpers. That means we can take 2 tandem jumpers at once.

  • Is there a weight limit?

Our weight limit is 250 lbs, and you must be an appropriate height/weight ratio. If you are unsure, please give us a call and we can help you. There is a small fee for anything over 220 lbs. Roughly $1/lbs over 220 lbs.

  • Can I wear my glasses?

If you have contacts, it is best to wear them instead of your glasses. If you only have glasses, and your vision is acceptable without them, we recommend you leave them behind for the jump. The goggles fit better, and you won't risk losing your glasses. If you need your glasses to see and prefer to wear them, we do have special goggles that can go over them.

  • Do I need to make a reservation?

We recommend that you make a reservation, but walk-ins are always welcome as long as we are open and jumping.
