Can you record while skydiving?

Keeping tandem students from recording their own skydive may seem like a sneaky way to net a little extra profit from every jump, but that is not why we enforce the ban. We didn’t make this up! It’s on the books of the United States Parachute Association, who created the rule with a firm eye on your safety.

Can you hear music while skydiving?

Despite what movies would have you believe, you cannot talk in freefall – and you still wouldn’t hear your music too well. Skydiving at 120mph is not going to hurt your ears, but the rushing wind will cover any other noise.

How do skydivers film themselves?

When you choose outside camera, you get a dedicated camera person who will film your experience for you. They sit in front of you in the sky in freefall and fly around you to capture the whole experience. That means they can only film on skydiver at a time.

What do you wear to skydive in Florida?

The basic attire for your tandem should be lace-up athletic shoes, shorts or long pants, t-shirt (long or short sleeve). If it’s chilly outside, it will be much colder at altitude, so you may want to wear pants and a sweatshirt or light jacket. We do have jumpsuits available upon request.

Can you wear earbuds while skydiving?

Most standard headphones wouldn’t make a dent in that kind of noise unless you turned them up to a level that could be detrimental to your eardrums. Additionally, there’s no way to secure your headphones, so it’s likely the wind would rip them right away.

What can you hear when skydiving?

You hear the loud rush of wind. It’s similar to static from blowing into a microphone, or the loud sound in your head the moment you splash into water. It is not harsh or painful, but it is too loud to carry on conversation. But once the parachute opens, it’s quiet.

When can I skydive with a camera?
