Know what it is to fly with this sensational tandem skydive
Jump from 10,000 feet harnessed to an expert instructor
Freefall for 30 mind-blowing seconds
Then the instructor opens the chute, you float down to earth
Jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet might be considered utter madness; but if close friends start to worry about your sanity, assure them you will be securely attached (literally) to a fully qualified instructor throughout. This tandem skydiving experience begins with around an hour of instruction, before you go up. Upon reaching the appropriate altitude, an instructor helps you jump from the plane for an adrenaline-pumping 30 seconds of freefall, which is so incredible there's no point in us trying to describe it. The instructor opens the parachute and controls the descent while you admire the view and come to terms with the adrenaline rush. At the end, take home a photo and DVD of the tandem skydiving experience.
