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.
You are welcome at Hoogeveen airport. The airport has one runway with a length of 1,080 m (3,543 ft): the longest grass runway in the Netherlands. Skydiving is also available in Texel, Ameland, Midden-Zeeland and Breda.
Skydiving cannot be compared to anything else. It is an unforgettable, sensational experience that you must have done at least once in your life. Almost all daredevils have it on their bucket list. When you arrive at the airport you get 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!
You jump together with an experienced instructor, also known as a tandem master. This means you don't need any skydive experience yourself. You get a clear explanation before the jump, so you know exactly what is expected of you. Safety first of course. You put on an overall and a harness. And very trendy glasses. Otherwise you will not see anything because of the wind.
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 ready 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 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 Hoogeveen 4 duos can jump out of the same airplane. In october, the maximum is two tandems per plane. 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 skydiving Texel.
