Tandem Skydive UK:  

The Experience

Ask anyone who has completed this heart stopping Golden Moment and their reply will be 'Just Do It!' Following an expert pre-jump briefing, you will experience the breathtaking thrill of freefall and even learn the basics of steering and landing a modern 'square' gliding parachute, while securely attached to a highly experienced Instructor. A Tandem Skydive in the UK normally takes place from 10,000 to 12,000 feet - and sometimes even higher!
After exiting the aircraft - securely attached to your Instructor! - You will freefall until the Instructor opens the main parachute at about 5,000 feet. You will spend about 30 seconds in freefall (depending on the exit altitude) and reach a speed of around 120 miles per hour! The descent under the large square parachute will take several minutes, during which time you will help to steer it down to the landing area. Don't forget to enjoy the view - you can see for miles on a clear day !
 

Vital Information

The weight limit per venue varies between 13 and 16 stone. Minimum age is 16. If you're over 39 years old you'll need a signed doctor's certificate. You'll be asked to complete a full medical declaration when you book a date and should be reasonably fit.
 

The Weather

Jumping is always subject to weather conditions and cancellations for this reason are made with your safety in mind. It is crucial that you call the centre before you leave on the morning of your jump to check weather conditions are suitable.
 

Session Length

The duration of this experience varies and is dependent on a number of factors such as the weather and the number of participants on the day. As a guide your training and jump will take approx. one hour but you may be at the centre for much of the day.
 

Numbers

Your training may be shared, your jump will be one-to-one with a fully qualified skydiver.
 

Spectators

Spectators are welcome and are advised to bring a camera and binoculars to capture the best of the experience. Parachuting is not an ideal spectator’s sport as there is a lot of waiting around. Spectators get bored, especially children. Please make your family and friends aware of this.
 

What To Wear

Dress warmly and comfortably, wear flat-soled shoes (preferably ankle boots to support your ankle on landing) and bring a sweater as it can get cold on the airfield.

Awesome
My girlfriend bought me this for my 30th birthday, I'd always told her it was on my things to do list. Trust me if you're thinking about jumping out of a plane before it lands then just do it - it will make you smile whenever you re-live the experience in your mind... and no need to be scared the guys who took me up were awesome! Thanks Golden Moments.

Tandem Skydive UK: Fascinating Facts

Both Leonardo da Vinci and the ancient Chinese have been credited with the idea of a parachute. However, the first man to demonstrate the theory in action was Louis-Sebastien Lenormand of France who in 1783 jumped from a tree with two parasols. Later, in 1797, Andre-Jacques Garnerin made the first jump from a balloon with a parachute. He made a number of exhibition jumps, including one of about 8,000 feet (2,400 metres) in England in 1802. Early parachutes were made of canvas; later, silk was employed. The first successful descent from a plane was by Captain Albert Berry of the U.S. Army in 1912. But in World War I, although parachutes were used with great frequency by observers escaping from captive balloons, they were considered impractical for aircraft, and only in the last stage of the war were they finally introduced. Today, parachuting forms one of the largest internationally represented aeronautical sports in the world.
