What is Tandem Jump about
Before Tandem jump you will get personal training from your tandem pilot
who will go with you through the whole jump. Right after you will be dressed up into
special harness by which you will be firmly lashed together with your tandem pilot.
Then you will enjoy about 20 minutes of ascenting up to 4000 meters. In that moment
you will be already safely attached to Tandem Pilot and ready for the jump. After exit
from the plane you will free fall approximately 1 minute although you will feel like
levitating. This feeling will be enhanced by presence of cameraman who will be
flying within your grasp in front of you. Tandem Pilot will open canopy at 1500
meters and will fly with you above landscape until soft landing. It is really soft,
practically you won´t touch the ground. In case your jump will be shot by cameramen
you will receive your DVD and even your pictures on CD within 30 minutes. With your
approval we will place short video from your jump on our web page where your friends
and relatives can view it or download it.
Safety and technology
Parachutism or rather Skydiving is very safe sport. This is double true if we speak about tandem jumps. Tandem rig is 100% focused on passenger safety, e.g. all control parts are doubled. Most advanced materials are used in production of canopies. Everything is deeply tested.
Our company use the most modern and reliable tandem rig type "SIGMA", which is used by profesionals all over the world.
This system is not offering just maximum safety but also maximum comfort for passengers.
The altitude is continually checked by Tandem Pilot on analog altimeter attached to his wrist. Second digital altimeter is placed in his helmet. It tracks free fall and inform Tandem Pilot when set up altitude is reached.
Tandem rig is equipped with sophisticated built-in emergency computer, which monitors all the time data about velocity, altitude etc. In critical situation in low altitude, it automaticaly opens reserve canopy even without the Pilot intervention.
