A tandem skydive is an easy and enjoyable way to experience the thrills of skydiving. Once aboard the aircraft, you will be securely harnessed to your Instructor as you ride up to your chosen altitude. The aircraft takes approximately 10 minutes to climb to 15,000ft, giving you time to take in the views. Once at altitude, you will get the green light for GO!
During freefall, you will experience speeds of approximately 120mph for up to a minute, falling around 2 miles. As the canopy opens, you will be aware of the sudden tranquillity as your speed dramatically decreases. This allows you to talk with your Instructor, take in the expansive scenery during the 5 minute parachute ride, and land safely after helping your Instructor to steer the parachute around the sky before gliding back to the airfield.
