Can anything be more thrilling than leaping out of an aircraft at 13,000 ft?!! The great advantage of a tandem skydive is that you need no experience - just a 30 minute briefing before you jump. You'll be securely strapped to your instructor and, moments later, you're leaping out of a plane and skydiving to earth at 120 mph. This is one of the most extreme sensations you'll ever experience - up to 50 seconds of free fall and then your instructor will pull the parachute cord and together you fly the canopy back to the drop zone. This is one of the ultimate thrills for adrenaline junkies!
Your activity begins with a safety briefing from our expert instructors and pre-jump training to prepare you for your experience. Then, you are taken in an aircraft to between 10,000 and 13,000 feet. Securely attached to your instructor by a dual harness, the free fall will probably be the most exhilarating experience of your life. This is a great introduction to free-fall using a dual harness system - you'll jump with an instructor who controls the free-fall and parachute deployment and landing. This activity may be suitable for disabled people - please contact us for more details.
