Jump Out of a Perfectly Good
at 30,000 Feet
Because You Can!
Prepare for the ultimate skydive adventure -
a military-style, High
Open parachute jump.
At 30,000 feet, the temperature is somewhere around
25 to 35 degrees below zero. Without oxygen, you can expect to
be usefully conscious about 30 seconds.
HALO Questions & Answers
Where do jumps take place?
We jump from a skydive centers located at Fayette County Airport
in Somerville, Tennessee (less than 1 hour from Memphis) and at
Lumberton Municipal Airport in Lumberton, Mississippi.
How much skydiving experience do I need to complete
a tandem HALO jump?
None. Well teach you everything you need to know to
jump and land safely.
I am to be attached by four clips to
an experienced sky diver in a harness called a tandem, and,
if we live, we will have performed the highest civilian
tandem sky dive ever...

Is this safe?
Skydiving is inherently risky. You could die. You will be
required to sign a release of liability. That said, the guy strapped
to you throughout your HALO tandem jump has no desire to die young.
Hes an expert jumper who will be using the best possible
equipment and taking all steps humanly possible to make your adventure
as safe as it can be.
What physical requirements must I meet?
You must be in excellent health and weigh less than 225 lbs. and not have had surgery within the past 18 months or donated blood within the past month.
How long is the freefall?
You will exit the aircraft at approximately 30,000 feet (depending
on conditions) and experience up to two minutes of freefall.
there anything else I should know?
Men should be clean-shaven so oxygen masks will fit snugly.
What kind of plane is used?
You'll jump from a specially modified B90 King Air.
Can you describe the program?
Plan to arrive at the jump zone in Somerville, Tennessee, by 11
am on Sunday. You'll spend the entire afternoon getting fitted
for equipment and training with our expert HALO jump team. Youll
learn tandem skydiving basics and practice pre-breathing techniques.
(To safely jump from 30,000 feet and avoid experiencing the sort
of bends you can get when scuba diving, you’ll spend
time on board the aircraft pre-breathing 100% oxygen.) You'll
need to be back at the drop zone by 7:30 am on Monday so we recommend
you stay somewhere nearby. If all goes as scheduled, you'll be
leaving the drop zone with a smile on your face and your HALO
jump certificate in hand, by noon. Please keep in mind
that bad jump weather can change everything. It's extremely important
that you have Tuesday as a back-up day.
