Experience a different type of tandem where you exit from a lower altitude of 7,000 feet instead of our usual 12,000 feet. A popular choice for on a budget for those wishing to try before embarking on the higher tandem.
Training is to the same high standard as our regular tandem skydives. On arrival at the parachute centre your tandem instructor will take you through all you need know to make the jump safely. This will include the equipment to be used, aircraft orientation as well as covering what you can expect in freefall and finally the position you need to adopt for landing. This briefing and training generally takes 30 minutes and the instructor will be pleased to answer any questions you may have.
For your skydive you will be provided with a jump suit, gloves, goggles and headgear. Next you will be fitted into your harness by your instructor. Once inside the aircraft you will be attached to your instructor. You will still experience that huge rush of adrenaline as you see the door open at 7,000 feet and you move towards the edge of the aircraft. Momentarily suspended outside before you exit. Your instructor will deploy the parachute within seconds and by about 5,000 feet you’ll be under a Ram Air Tandem Parachute spiraling through the sky. The parachute has dual controls and you can aid the instructor in steering the parachute to make the most of the stunning views over the Gower peninsula. Your instructor will take complete control of the landing after about 5 minutes, guaranteed to take your breath away! To commemorate your skydive experience you’ll also be presented with a certificate of achievement.
