What is a Tandem Skydive?
The first step in most skydiving instruction courses and the thrill of a lifetime for most weekend adventure seekers, a Tandem is the start either way and fun no matter how you look at it. You will be attached to the instructor who will be wearing the parachute system. Your Tandem experience will start with a brief ground course on what you will be expected to do and what to expect. This course will cover the adjustment of the harness, how to board the aircraft, what will happen during the ascent to altitude, the exit procedures, what to expect, etc. This is a general outline of your big day. If you have any questions during this time please ask the instructor because the clearer it is to you before the more fun we'll have and the safer it will be!
The primary goal of this jump is basic freefall body position, introduction to canopy flight and just having fun.
Following the brief you will take to the sky! Following a thirty minute ride to altitude you will exit 11,000 feet above the airport and enjoy about fifty seconds of free-fall followed by ten minutes of canopy flight before returning to the ground to the resounding cheers of your friends and family!
Whatever time you book please understand that skydiving is highly dependent on several factors including: weather, airplane, sunlight, and other skydivers. This means that while you may book 2:00pm tandem it might mean that you won't get to jump at that time. We ask that you try and set aside at least half a day to this experience and be patient, we will get to everyone.
Please arrive 30 - 60 minutes before your appointment. There is paperwork to complete, decisions to be made, and the briefing. If you arrive early you can get this out of the way and watch others take the plunge, watch a few videos, and chat with everyone before your jump.
