A tandem jump is the way to get acquainted with parachuting (skydiving). You jump out of an airplane with an instructor from a height of 3 km (9,000 feet).
Parachuting in Zeeland takes place from Airport Midden-Zeeland in Arnemuiden. This is a regional airport with a grass runway. There is a restaurant with a view of the runway. When you arrive at the airport you are immediately in the mood. There is always plenty of activity and you can enjoy all kinds of planes that are constantly taking off and landing. In addition, you will of course see many skydivers, you can admire their entire jump from start to finish. This way you will get even more excited about your own jump!
Do you dare?
A parachute jump cannot be compared to anything else. It is an unforgettable, sensational experience. You must do this at least once in your life. Almost all daredevils have it on their bucket list. It is very special to see Zeeland approaching at 200 kilometers per hour.
You jump together with an experienced instructor, also known as a tandem master. This means you don't have to have a skydive experience yourself. You get a clear explanation before the jump, so you know exactly what is expected of you. Everything is of course all about safety. You get to wear an overall and a harness. And wearing very trendy glasses. Otherwise you will not see anything because of the wind in your eyes.
When everything is checked, you get on the plane and climb to a height of 3 kilometers. From there you have a beautiful view. You will be attached to the instructor and prepare for the jump. The jump starts with a free fall. You thereby achieve speeds of up to 200 km / h. This takes about half a minute and then the large parachute opens. You float down slowly below the parachute. Enjoy the view and listen to the sounds on the ground. It is a surreal experience. You make the perfect landing under the watchful eye of your family and friends.
You do not need any experience for the tandem jump. You jump together with an experienced instructor (the tandem master). He or she has made thousands of jumps and keeps everything under control. There are a number of requirements regarding age, health and physique. These can be found under the headings specifications and remarks at the bottom of this page.
Jump together with your friends?
It is of course completely cool to share this experience with friends or family. You can usually jump together. From Zeeland 2 duos can jump out of the same airplane. Please note that the actual maximum may vary depending on the aircraft in use and availability of instructors.
