"Don’t die without embracing the daring adventure your life was meant to be." – Steve Pavlina
Skydive Cape Town
offers you the easiest way. A tandem jump is the way to go if you’re unsure about skydiving, and want to try it out before committing to a full course. Experience the thrill of freefall without the effort of learning all the theory. On a tandem jump, you are strapped to a Tandem Instructor with a special harness that’s attached to a specially designed parachute large enough to support both of you.
After only 15 minutes of ground you will enjoy a spectacular 20 minute aircraft ride, experiencing the finest views of the West Coast, Cape Town, Robben and Table Mountain. Then it's action time! Out the door for a 120mph/200kph freefall, falling about 25-30 seconds from 9,000ft. The Tandem Instructor opens the parachute at about 5000ft, and a peaceful 3-4 minute parachute ride to the ground follows. If you’d like to capture the moment, the tandem master can film the jump by means of a camera attached to his wrist.
A tandem jump requires that you’re in general good health. The maximum weight for a tandem passenger is 100kg. Parental consent is required for jumpers under the age of 18. After the Tandem jump we can give you more information on how to continue your training with the aim of obtaining a Skydiving licence.
SKYDIVE (TANDEM JUMP) - GAUTENG
Get ready to fly with JSC club
If you're just after that once-off thrill of a lifetime, or you're not quite sure yet whether this skydiving thing is for you, then a tandem jump is what you want to try. No comprehensive ground school is required for a tandem skydive. A Tandem Instructor will brief you on the do's and don'ts prior to the jump. You will be told what to expect and how to get the most from your tandem experience.
You will wear a strong passenger harness, with which you will be securely connected to the front of a highly qualified Tandem Instructor. The two of you will exit the aircraft at 11000ft AGL and freefall at 200kph down to 5000ft AGL. During this freefall, no verbal communication is possible between passenger and Tandem Instructor, due to wind noise. The freefall will feel like you are suspended on a thick cushion of air it will almost feel as if you are freefalling by yourself as you will be weightless.
After 40 seconds of falling straight down at 200km/h, the Tandem Instructor will deploy the main parachute at an altitude of approximately 5000ft AGL. At this stage, everything slows down a whole lot. As the two of you drift gently down to earth, you will be able to talk to each other, enjoy the ride and the magnificent view. The canopy ride down to earth will last around 5-8 minutes, after which you will touch down gently in front of the club house.
An experienced camera man will video the entire event, from your briefing until shortly after the landing. The exit and actual freefall is expertly filmed by the camera man who will fly a few feet in front of the tandem. You will receive a video or DVD edited with music and slow motion shots of the action parts before you go home. This will be an awesome reminder which you will watch over and over in years to come. (Forget those old holiday videos guys... check out my tandem jump!!!)
Wear running shoes (tekkies) with no buckles or hooks. Gloves in winter will be a good idea!
