What Can I Expect

‘If I want to go tandem skydiving near me, do I come to you?'. Yes is the answer. This nationwide skydiving voucher covers loads of venues around the country. Offering maximum flexibility, there's no need to choose which location you want to do your jump at when you buy your voucher. 

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 on in there and enjoy the ride. All instructors are 'jump masters' who have undertaken rigorous training and made hundreds, if not thousands, of jumps. Tandem-style experiences allow complete novices to feel the thrills of free falling, without all that training.

So what does it feel like to skydive attached to your instructor in a tandem harness? You'll prepare for your skydive by attaching yourselves together whilst you're still making your ascent in the plane, so by the time it comes to exiting, you'll find yourselves waddling towards the open door. It feels like you're wearing the instructor (who also carries the parachute) like a backpack!

And when it comes to the falling out of the plane bit, the free falling it's 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 even be treated to a few turns and moves if you're up for it. Your skydive partner might even hand you the toggles for you to control your tandem ride for a few moments as landing preparations are being completed.

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 the aerial action.
