Tandem Skydiving

Since being introduced to the sport of British Parachuting in the early 1980’s Tandem Skydiving has become by far the most popular and safest form of introductory parachute jump available to first timers. It involves you being taken on a ‘full experience skydive’ by a fully qualified Skydiving Instructor using a parachute jump system specially designed and engineered to take two people.
When your turn comes to complete your first tandem jump the adrenalin will be flowing – but don’t worry your experienced Skydiving Instructor is literally right behind you looking after you all the way.Following a short pre-jump briefing, which takes about 20 minutes, you’ll kit up and board the aircraft as it ascends to an altitude of up to 15,000 feet. During this time you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the views and go through the final safety checks.

As you freefall through the air at 125mph high above the ground your mind will be buzzing! Free fall is a fantastic experience that is literally out of this world and impossible to describe – you just have to do it!

After freefalling for up to 60 seconds if jumping from 15,000 feet (or 30 seconds from 10,000 feet) your Tandem Instructor will deploy your parachute so that it opens at around 5,000 feet (about a mile up).

During the next five or so minutes you will float gently back to earth safely suspended under a fully open parachute, with your feet dangling in the air, having plenty of time to enjoy the unique all round views of the local area and beyond.

Just before landing you will ask you to adopt the position you were taught during training so that you land heels first with your feet out in front of you and your toes pointing upwards. Your Instructor will then control the parachute during the final stages of the descent and guide you to a safe landing.

Congratulations you have done it! You’ve just made your first tandem jump with our expert Skydiving Instructors at North London Skydiving Centre we guarantee it’ll be an experience you’ll never, ever forget!

You’ll have smile on your face for months!
