A tandem jump is the best way to get acquainted with skydiving. Together with an instructor you jump out of an airplane from a height of 3 km.
There are five locations where you can make skydive. You are welcome at the airports of Texel, Midden-Zeeland, Ameland, Breda and Hoogeveen.
Do you dare?
Skydiving can not be compared with anything else. It is an unforgettable, sensational experience that you must have done. Almost all daredevils have it on their wish list.
When you arrive at the airport, you will immediately be in the mood. There is always plenty of activity and you can enjoy all kinds of aircraft that fly continuously. In addition, you will of course see many skydivers, you can admire their entire jump from start to finish. So you get even more excited!
Because you jump with an instructor, you do not need any experience. You get a clear explanation before the jump. Safety is of course the most important.
When everything is checked, you board the plane and climb to above 3 kilometers. From there you have a beautiful view. You are tied to the instructor and are ready for the jump. The jump starts with a free fall. You achieve a speed of about 200 km/h. That takes about half a minute and then the big parachute opens. On the parachute you will slowly float down to earth. Enjoy the view and listen to the sounds on the ground. It is a surreal experience. Under the watchful eye of your family and friends you make the perfect landing.
You do not need any experience for the tandem jump. You jump together with an experienced instructor (the tandemmaster). He or she has often made thousands of jumps and keeps everything under control. There are a number of requirements regarding age, health and physique:
- jumping is possible from around 8 years. It is important that you fit properly in the harness, for this you must be at least 120 cm and have a normal posture
- written permission from one of the parents is required under the age of 18
- there is no maximum age, as long as you are reasonably mobile and you meet the other requirements, you can still jump well beyond the retirement age
- skydiving during pregnancy is not recommended
- for the landing it is important that you can raise your knees to your chest
There is a maximum weight to be able to skydive safely. This depends on a number of factors and varies slightly per location. The maximums shown below include clothing and shoes, as you board the plane on the day of your tandem jump. The maximum weight per location:
- Ameland: a maximum of 95 kg
- Texel: a maximum of 100 kg
- Breda: a maximum of 100 kg
- Hoogeveen: a maximum of 100 kg and a maximum of 2.00 meters
- Zeeland: a maximum of 105 kg
You can have a long lasting memory of your skydive:
- By handycam. The instructor will film you using a camera wrapped on his hand. The preparation, the flight up and the jump are recorded. You will receive a DVD afterwards. You can reserve the handycam immediately with your jump. This is available on Ameland and Midden-Zeeland
- By a cameraman (or woman). The cameraman jumps along and films your jump including free fall. This is slightly more expensive because of the extra jump that has to be made, but you will get unique images. The cameraman is available on Texel, Breda and Hoogeveen. Afterwards you will receive the recordings directly, on a USB stick or DVD. In the winter season (from November to March) there are sometimes insufficient cameramen available on Texel. It may happen that your appointment needs to be rescheduled.
