Tandem Skydiving Freefall Speeds

A tandem skydiving pair will fall anywhere between 100-140 mph. Most skydivers fall directly at the midpoint with the normal average freefall speed of 120 mph.

Freefall speeds are essentially a function of mass to surface area. Generally speaking, heavier skydivers tend to fall a little bit faster than lighter skydivers. A difference of 10-20 mph in freefall is almost impossible to notice.
