Itinerary

We have two landing areas, one at the airfield and at the beach. Landings at Diaz and Santos beaches are weather and tide dependent. Thanks to the nature of the tandem skydive the formal training required can be kept to a minimum as your personal tandem instructor will control the free-fall and the parachute decent. However there is some information and rules that you need to be familiar with to help with the safe outcome of the jump. By educating you as what to expect in the airplane, how to hold your body during free-fall and what to expect when the parachute opens your fears can be eased and your fun maximized.

When the door finally opens and you exit the aircraft most of our students say their fears stay in the plane and the feeling they are left with they describe only as indescribable! The Tandem Instructor will be your silent partner, letting you have full control; or you can just lay back and enjoy the ride. Since we’re weightless in free fall, you won’t even notice that the Tandem Instructor is there. Jumping from up to 10 000? AGL (above ground level), we’ll free fall at 200 – 290 kph for up to 40 seconds. While we “Body Surf” the wind, we can do controlled turns, speed diving, and burn up the sky.

All too quickly you will find the parachute opening and your adrenaline charged free-fall transitions into a quite peaceful parachute decent, where you and your instructor can talk and share the moment with you. During the 5-7 minutes it takes to reach the ground your instructor can provide either a sedate gentle ride to the ground or a more radical roller coaster experience demonstrating spins and stalls as he skilfully takes you to our landing area.
