Tandem jumps are meant to offer an introduction to the sport. Tandem skydiving is currently the most popular way to make your first jump. A tandem skydive will allow the first time jumper to experience free fall while attached in front of an experienced jumper. A tandem jump only requires a few minutes of ground preparation (it is not a Solo First Jump Course). The passenger and tandem master each wear a harness, however only the tandem master wears the parachutes. The passenger's harness attaches to the front of the master's harness and the two of them freefall together for at least 30 seconds, open the parachute together, and land together under one Really BIG Parachute.
Tandem jumping provides an obvious advantage for the adventurous spirit who cannot adequately meet the physical or proficiency requirements for the Staticline TAF or AFF jumps. By relying on the Tandem Master's skills, they will still be able to experience the thrill of skydiving.
Because the tandem training is not a First Jump Course, if you decide to pursue the sport, you will still have to attend a Solo Jump Course in either the AFF or Staticline curriculum.
