Experience this Golden Moments parachuting without the fuss of an intensive course. After a short briefing you will be ready to take to the skies at altitudes up to 13,000 feet depending on weather and local air traffic control restrictions. Training is run throughout the day and students are strapped to the front of a Tandem instructor who is there to control the entire skydive for you.
Once you exit the aeroplane you will accelerate to 120 mph, covering each thousand feet in approximately 5 seconds. At 5,000 feet the instructor will deploy the square parachute which will then be controlled by both persons until you land softly and gently some four minutes later.
This Golden Moments experience is the best gift to celebrate your special occasions.
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.

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 40-50 seconds in freefall and you will have approximately 5 minutes under the parachute.
