    Choose a method of skydiving training

    Overall a good article. One main point is the little chart showing cost training F/F S/L etc. Tandem is not free fall. It is drogue fall.

    Tandem Skydiving

    Good article overall. But some misconceptions about tandem skydiving. These are quotes from the article linked below. " There is also the special tandem canopy, which will be the parachute that is deployed during freefall, also known as the main" "During free fall, you can expect to reach speeds of up to 120mph (180km/h)." "http://www.dropzone.com/safety/Learn_to_Skydive/Training_Methods/Tandem_Skydiving_52.html" Tandems are not free fall jumps. The speeds listed are OK but they do not explain the use of the drogue to achieve them or why. We are selling tandems as freefall when that is not true.
