SKYDIVING - Overview
| Skydiving > Parachuting > Free Falling
Tandem Skydiving has made it possible for a novice to experience the electrifying thrill of free fall parachuting and get a taste of what skydiving is all about without extensive training. Tandem involves only a twenty minute instruction session. After this, the novice jumper puts on a harness which is clipped to the harness of an expert instructor. The free fall lasts around 40 seconds, involves speeds of up to 120 mph and a straight fall of up to 6,000 ft. Once the extra large parachute has been deployed, it is dual controlled and the parachute ride to the ground will last around 5 minutes.
