Ask anyone who has completed Oxford Skydiving and their reply will be: Just Do It !
Imagine freefalling at 120mph, even falling past or through clouds, its just like flying! When the canopy opens you may be allowed to help with the steering and landing, all under the guidance of your tandem master or just simply enjoy the beautiful scenery.
You will jump from up to 13,500 feet attached to your instructor using a specially designed dual harness. The instructor controls the freefall, parachute opening and landing, leaving you free to enjoy the view and the sensation of freefall. You will be able to help the instructor to steer the parachute after opening.
Participants do not have to be particularly fit but there are some medical conditions that can cause problems. Tandem skydiving can also be carried out by people with certain disabilities with the approval of their doctor, the chief instructor and the tandem instructor.
Please contact our customer service team for more information. Minimum age 16 (16 - 18 with written consent from parent or guardian) and maximum weight is 96 kilos or 15 stones.
In case of extreme weather the "Tandem Skydive in Oxfordshire" can be cancelled and rescheduled for another day.
The training for the tandem jump is in the form of a briefing from your instructor which takes about half an hour. The whole experience from take off to landing is about 25 minutes. You will experience 40 seconds in freefall and you will have approximately 5 minutes under the parachute.
