The tandem skydive is the easiest and most hassle free way to make your first parachute jump. You experience the thrill of freefall and enjoy a long parachute descent. You are securely attached in a dual harness to an experienced tandem instructor who will give you a taste of what skydiving is all about. Because the tandem instructor takes control of vital functions such as opening the tandem parachute and landing, your preparation for the jump just takes 30 minutes.
You will exit the aircraft from around 10,000' and like the tandem student in the photo you can just relax on what feels like a cushion of air and enjoy the exhilarating experience. Depending on your brief, you can use the opportunity to do turns in the sky. Your parachute descent starts at 5,000 feet. This is the ultimate skydiving experience.
