Introduction to tandem skydiving
The first experimental tandem freefall parachute descent was carried out in 1977 over Florida, USA. A further six years of extensive development and testing by two major US parachute equipment manufacturers, resulted in a safe and reliable method of enabling the complete beginner to experience freefall parachuting in the same way as taking a trial flying lesson!
Using the tandem parachuting method, thousands have discovered the exciting sport of skydiving, and many have completed further training courses to become qualified skydivers.
Tandem Skydiving is the ideal way to experience the exhilaration of freefall. Following a short briefing session, and securely attached to your instructor, you board the aircraft for the flight to 10000 ft. Together you exit the aircraft for a breathtaking 30 second freefall. Your instructor deploys the parachute at 5000 ft and you would then have the opportunity to take control of the high performance gliding canopy for the 6 minute flight back to the airfield. Finally, your instructor takes over to ensure a safe landing. How much does all this cost?
