TrainingAfter a training brief of 20 minutes, you’re ready to take to make a tandem skydive. Plane RideDuring a short plane ride to altitude attached to your tandem skydive instructor, you will get a scenic view of the Wiltshire and Oxfordshire countryside. The SkydiveYou'll exit the jump plane with the tandem skydive instructor and free fall for up to 30 to 40 seconds. After your parachute has opened, you will enjoy a breath-taking flight that will last another 4 to 6 minutes as the parachute is steered to the drop zone landing area.
