You have probably seen skydiving activities on TV or heard from your friends about the experience. So by now, you should have known that skydiving or parachute jump does not necessarily be carried out alone, in fact, it is much more fun and safe when you participate in tandem skydiving or tandem parachuting!
If you are still wondering what tandem skydiving is, just know that this type of skydiving is a method of executing skydiving under the direct supervision of a professional instructor. Since every important detail and move will be executed by the instructor, you will practically only need a brief training session before you are fit to jump! How cool is that!
Therefore, you do not need any skydiving experience prior to tandem parachuting but will need to undergo a brief 15 to 20 minutes of training on the ground before you are good to go. Although you are not required to take care of the important and critical details, you will still need to get hold of important rules and principles especially during the flight to altitude and exiting the aircraft. Besides that, the significance of proper body position during freefall, parachute flight and landing procedure are emphasized during your training to make sure that you do not panic along the “diving” journey.
Another important aspect that plays a part in your first skydiving experience is the time during which you are in the air. Normally, the plane will climb to a specific altitude within 15 to 25 minutes before you are given the green light to jump off. Depending on the altitude you are at, time spent during freefall may range from 20 to 60 seconds 60 seconds. That’s only for freefall where after you will be flying in an open parachute that may take about 10 minutes before landing. That’s about a brief overall procedure for skydiving in tandem with your instructor!
