A Tandem jump is a one on one skydive where you are "attached", with a special harness to an instructor, and therefore is the quickest way to experience freefall.
No training necessary, you are simply attached by a special harness to a qualified tandem master (TM). You enjoy the ride the TM does all the work.
Tandem jumping is the easiest way to enjoy this experience of a lifetime.
You will both exit the aircraft and freefall for about 40 seconds at a speed of 120 mph at which time the instructor will pull the ripcord to deploy a parachute that is specifically designed for two people. You will then assist the instructor in guiding the parachute to an on-target landing at the drop zone.
The training for a tandem jump takes approximately 5 minutes and is taught at the drop zone.
To do a Tandem Skydive you must get parental permission if you are younger than 21.
You must weigh no more than 100 kgs. If you exceed our recommended weight limit, call for additional information.
Facilities include lecture rooms, accommodation in the bunkhouse, free camping facilities, hot and cold showers, swimming pool, bar, canteen, braai facilities, plenty of secure parking and a weekend you'll never forget !!!
