What is Tandem Skydiving?

Tandem skydiving is one of the most popular ways to experience skydiving for the first time. Attached to an instructor, you will jump from the airplane and freefall for a short time before your parachute opens.

This month’s blog at Black Knights Skydiving Centre looks at tandem skydiving. For more information, call us today on 01524 791820.

Why Should You Do a Tandem Dive?

A tandem skydive is great for those who are not yet ready to do a solo skydive. If you would like to experience a freefall without intense training, this is for you.

Anyone over the age of 16 can take part in this jump. However, you must be within a certain weight bracket and comply with health restrictions.

Is it Safe?

Any action sport involves some degree of risk that must be managed. We adhere to extremely strict safety standards. Therefore, any serious accidents are exceptionally rare.

For first-time skydivers, a tandem skydive is ideal. No professional skydiving centre will let you go jump alone without the appropriate training. You will always be attached to a certified British Parachute Association instructor.

At Black Knights Skydiving Centre, we require you to complete a 7-day course before we even let you jump alone. We ensure skydives are carried out as safely as possible.
