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!
