- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
Tandem skydiving is officially the most exciting of adrenaline
experiences, combining the incredible sensation of free fall with
the best scenic views found anywhere across the country - from a
range of heights as you descend back to earth at Gravity's will!
With an experienced skydiving instructor attached to your back,
you'll be free to appreciate every aspect of what's going on around
you - leaving all the parachuting technicalities to the experienced
skydiver who will control every aspect and land you back on terra
firma after around 8 minutes of unbridled skydiving joy! With this
great Tandem Skydive voucher, you can choose any of the airfields
we have here at Experience Days - and when you'd most like to
jump!Your tandem skydive experience will begin with a welcome
registration at your airfield of choice, before moving on into the
classroom to begin a safety and technique brief watching a video
with your expert instructor. Then, once briefed and ready - you'll
hit the practice mats for a practical session learning where to
place your limbs and head throughout the jump. You'll then be ready
to don the safety gear and get out onto the runway with your
instructor, who will strap you to his chest before taking a seat
together on the plane in one or two rows of skydivers. With the
tension and excitement high, you'll make your way up to the desired
height - where the instructor will open the hatch ready to make the
most excitingly fantastic journey of your life! Sat with your legs
dangling over the edge of the plane's open door, the instructor
will roll forward and you'll begin the intense rush of free fall
for between 30 and 60 seconds (depending on the jump height) before
the instructor deploys the parachute and you start the 6-8 minutes
of gently parachuting back to ground level. Once landed, you'll
take off the safety gear, be presented with a certificate and will
then be free to leave the airfield with one scratched off the
