Manager & Chief Pilot
ON THE GROUND
Prior to your jump, there is a very brief process to go over the basics such as a short video regarding safety rules and then some basic paperwork. You will be introduced to one of our USPA certified instructors as part of this process. After a short briefing you and your instructor will “gear up” and head to the plane!
IN THE PLANE
The first part of the excitement is the plane ride up where you will get to enjoy a plane ride miles above the ground. Once you are at altitude the pilot will turn onto “jump run”. This means he will fly over the drop zone.
When the door opens you are seconds away from the thrill of your life! You and your instructor will make your way to the open door, and with a “Ready… Set… GO!” you will exit the plane and begin experiencing what few have only dreamed of…FLYING YOUR BODY! You will experience the excitement and at the same time peacefulness of freefall!
Upon reaching the pre-determined altitude your instructor will pull a drogue-release handle and initiate the parachute opening sequence! Once under canopy (that’s what we call the parachute) you will peacefully fly through the breeze above our Boise DZONE! This is a great moment that is captured on film when you purchase a media package, there’s nothing like the excitement and joy exhibited on a skydive!
Contrary to some old school beliefs, landings are very smooth and easy because of the massive strides and advancements in parachute technology. The days of hard landings went away along with the old and out-dated round parachute back in the 70’s. All of DZONE’s “rigs” (parachute packs) include two modern parachutes, a main and a reserve, both built using the same Ram Air technology as in paragliding. This is all part of what allows for safe, and fun landings! DZONE™ Skydiving uses current and state of the art technology for all of their gear and not just some. Your enjoyment and safety are paramount to us!
