Skydive New Mexico

240 Airport Road
Belen, NM 87002


Skydive New Mexico offers two different ways to make your first skydive, Tandem or Instructor Assisted Deployment (IAD). On a tandem jump the student and instructor are harnessed together and the instructor controls the skydive. IAD students wear their own parachute system and make a solo skydive with the assistance of an IAD instructor. Tandem is ideal if you just want to experience skydiving one time or simply don't want to go alone the first time. If you think you might want to become a skydiver, or if you just want to take a more "do it yourself" approach to your first jump, then IAD might be for you. Once you've made two IAD jumps a skydiving student can decide to start Skydive New Mexico's Accelerated Freefall training.
