Skydiving is an extreme sport that cannot be performed without prior special training.
For all those who want to feel the thrill of a parachute jump, but are not licensed skydivers themselves, tandem jumps are the easiest alternative.
The tandem jump is made with the student or first time skydiver connected to a harness attached to a tandem instructor.
The jump is made when the airplane is approximately 4000 meters (13000 feet) above ground, and includes free-falling for 30 seconds up to 1 minute before the instructor deploys the parachute. Once the parachute is open, you can try your hand at piloting it, while the instructor is still in control of it. This means you are completely safe at all times.
The tandem jump can turn out to be just your first step in this sport, as this adrenaline filled experience may drive you to turn skydiving into a lifestyle.
SKYDIVING TRAINING COURSES
If you have decided you want to become a licensed skydiver, you have to take a course that includes both theoretical training and instructor-supervised jumps. You can opt for one of the two training options: accelerated freefall (AFF) or static line, and you will benefit from the extensive experience of nationally and internationally licensed instructors and the latest training methods in the sport.
