JUMP FROM 15, 000 FEET!
Experience 60 seconds of free-fall when you fly up to 15, 000 feet! When it’s your turn, you will be fitted into your harness and will be given a briefing by your USPA-rated instructor. Then you walk with your jump master to board the plane where you will then be securely attached to them. Then the aircraft will climb to 15,000 feet dependent on the weather and air traffic clearance.
When it is safe to do so, you and your tandem instructor will move to the door ready to exit the plane! On leaving the plane, you will free-fall through terminal velocity, reaching a speed of 120 miles an hour before your tandem instructor deploys the parachute at around 5, 500 feet.
You then get to enjoy the local views, gliding through the air whilst suspended underneath your tandem parachute. You may even get the chance to take control and fly the canopy back to the landing area!
As you get near to the ground, it’s time to wave to your friends and family watching at the landing zone, and then you will be asked to put your feet up while your tandem instructor takes control and lands the canopy. Remember to smile for the camera!
