10,000 ft Freefall Parachute Jumping!
What's it like?
Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000
feet - the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the
outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway
and letting go - falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as
you start freefalling at over 120mph! Then imagine the peace and quiet as the
canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a
tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air, steering yourself back
down to the centre of the drop zone below. Well you can stop imagining because
it's real and you can do it at an airfield near you by reserving a place on one
of our 10,000 feet freefall tandem skydives...
What does freefall parachuting involve?
Technically the jump is called a 'Tandem Skydive'. It is a
Skydive because you will be freefalling through the air (without the parachute
deployed) for several thousand feet; it is in Tandem because you will be
harnessed to a professional parachute instructor at all times throughout the
descent (see photo). This is the only way you can jump from such an altitude
without spending thousands of pounds becoming a freefall parachutist. This is
literally the chance of a lifetime! This jump is also much less demanding than
the traditional 'static line' jump as the jump and training are completed in one
day and your instructor will control your landing.
