What Can I Expect

‘If I want to do a tandem skydive near me, do I come to you?'. Yes is the answer. This flexible, nationwide tandem skydiving voucher covers loads of venues around the country. 

Tandem jumps are our best-selling type of skydive. In essence, the professional skydiver is the one who does all the work and you just hang in there and enjoy the ride! 

All instructors are 'jump masters' who have undertaken rigorous training and made hundreds of parachute jumps around the country, if not the world. Tandem-style experiences allow complete novices to feel the thrills of free falling, without all that training.

You'll prepare for your skydive by harnessing yourselves together whilst you're still making your ascent in the plane. It feels like you're wearing the instructor (who also carries the parachute) like a backpack. To exit, you'll find yourselves waddling towards the open door…and on the signal away you go.

So what does it feel like to skydive? The free falling is actually quite serene and you enjoy a floaty feeling. It only lasts for around 30 seconds, so try to relish every moment!

When your instructor deploys the chute at around 5000ft, expect a jerk as the falling stops and you go upwards for a second or two. It's only then your brain really registers the sensation that you are descending.

With four or five minutes of floating back down to earth 'under canopy' to enjoy, you might be treated to a few turns and moves if you're up for it. Your skydive partner may even hand you the toggles for you to control your tandem ride for a few moments!

Before you know it, the ground will start rushing towards you and it's time to bring your thrilling tandem skydive to a close by executing the perfect landing. Knees up, your instructor's feet will hit the ground first and with any luck, all you'll need to do is stand up.

Utterly exhilarated, it'll be time to celebrate your tandem skydiving success with all your near friends and family who have been eagerly watching. Buy your nationwide tandem skydive vouchers now!
