Differences between tandem skydiving and solo skydiving 

The biggest difference is recognized in this subtitle itself. In the case of a solo skydiving , skydiver jumps independently, while in a tandem skydiving, two people jump at the same time. When skydiving in tandem, it is mandatory that one person is an experienced skydiver or a skydiving instructor.

In tandem skydiving  you have a special experience – you feel all the adrenaline and pleasure while your instructor takes care of releasing the parachute and landing.

If you want to learn how to skydive to be able to solo skydive one day see our training program.

Tandem skydiving training

The question arises: If each part of the jump is taken care of by a skydiving instructor, is it necessary for the person jumping with him to have some training before the jump itself? The answer is: Yes!

Training will last about 25 to 35 minutes, depending on a group size.

You will learn the following from your instructor:

  • How to safely walk on airport taxiways and around small aircraft.
  • Proper aircraft exit procedures and proper free fall, canopy flight and landing body positions.

As you and your instructor exit the aircraft, you will experience an incredible 45-second flight you will never forget! Around 5,000 ft you or your instructor will open the parachute, and by no means has the experience ended there.
