What is a tandem skydive like?2023-03-09T10:35:45+00:00

A Tandem skydive lets you experience free fall without the need for lots of training. After a brief 20 minute training session you will be ready to skydive. You will be kitted up and then head to the aircraft. Once you have boarded the aircraft it will only take around 15-20 minutes to reach skydiving altitude. You will free fall from at least 10,000 feet with the parachute being opened at 5,000 feet after you have experienced around 1 minute of free fall. You then get to enjoy the last mile under canopy with your instructor, taking in the spectacular views before a soft landing back at the airfield. This is the perfect experience for your first-time jump as you are attached to an instructor who does all of the work for you, leaving you free to the view!

WHAT TO EXPECT

Jump
10,000 ft

This is it, your tandem skydive – strapped to your fully qualified, expert instructor, you begin your descent into the pure open sky. As you exit the aircraft, you dive straight into an incredible 30-40 seconds of freefall time, soaring through the sky at rapid speed (approximately 120mph). By this point, your adrenaline will be at its absolute peak – there’s no rush like it!

Canopy Deployed
5,000 ft

Your parachute opens, and the beauty of the landscape surrounding you suddenly comes into view. The high-octane thrill of the freefall now becomes something more relaxed and inspiring. You will feel as though you are floating through the sky as you slowly descend; be sure to enjoy the view, you’ll never get to experience anything like this again!

The
landing

And you’ve done it!
