If you want to experience every aspect of our sport on your very first jump, a Tandem Skydive is just the thing! Following a short pre-jump briefing, you will enjoy the thrill of free fall and even learn the basics of steering and landing a modern ‘square’ gliding parachute, while securely attached to a highly experienced instructor.
With a parachute specially designed for two people, you will board an aircraft and climb to around 13,000 feet (over two miles high!). When you and your instructor leave the plane, you will fall at about 120 mph, descending to 5,000 feet in around 45 seconds. At this point, your instructor will open the parachute and fly you safely back to earth! During the six minutes or so under the parachute, you will enjoy breathtaking and unique views of the local area and beyond.
On the day of your skydive your instructor will explain in detail what you have to do and what will take place during the flight up, the free fall descent and the ride down under the parachute. This briefing normally takes around 20 minutes.
After this, you will be provided with a skydiver’s jumpsuit to go over your clothes (you should wear comfortable clothing, such as a track suit, and a pair of trainers). After fitting the tandem parachute harness (and appropriate headgear and goggles) you are ready to board the plane for the 15 minute ascent. Then it’s one glorious leap out into the blue!
booking your skydive
Please be aware of the following requirements:
If you want to see how you look in freefall, to re-live that amazing feeling again plus show all your family and friends, ask for the training, descent and landing to be filmed. Although this will add to the cost of the Tandem jump, it will give you an wonderful record of the event for evermore.
We will edit the film for you on the day if there's time otherwise we will deliver it a few days later via post or email.
