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).
You have never seen our Wadden Islands in this way. The plane leaves from Ameland Airport Ballum, near the village of Ballum. This is a small airport which is usually closed in the winter. Skydiving on Ameland is possible from April to October. Parachuting is also available in Texel, Midden-Zeeland, Breda and Hoogeveen.
A parachute jump cannot be compared to anything. It is an unforgettable, sensational experience that you must have done. Almost all daring people have it on their wish list. When you arrive at the airport you are immediately in the mood. There is always plenty of activities and you can enjoy all kinds of devices that are constantly flying to and from. In addition, you will of course see many skydivers, you can admire their entire jump from start to finish. This way you will get more excited about your own jump!
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 an overall and harness. And you get to wear very trendy glasses. Otherwise you will not see anything because of the wind in your eyes.
When everything is checked, you'll get on the plane and climb to a height of 3 kilometers. From there you have a beautiful view of the Wadden Islands. You will be attached to the instructor and ready for the jump. The jump starts with a free fall. You achieve speeds of up to 200 km/h. This takes about half a minute and then the large parachute opens. You float down slowly on 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:
It is of course completely cool to share this experience with friends or family. You can usually jump together. From Ameland 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. If you want to skydive with a larger group, we suggest you have a look at Texel, Hoogeveen or Breda.
