Tandem skydiving or tandem parachuting refers to a type of skydiving where a student skydiver is connected to a harness attached to a tandem instructor. The instructor guides the student through the whole jump from exit through freefall, piloting the canopy, and landing. The student needs only minimal instruction before making a tandem jump with the instructor.
Although you might get invitation to pilot the parachute yourself, the tandem instructor will be in control at all times. After a short briefing lasting at most 30 minutes you are cleared to jump with your instructor from a height of 3000 meters which will give you 30 seconds of freefall before the instructor deploys the prachute.
Tandem jumping is the safest and easyest way for you to experience skydiving, offering complete safety and, at the same time, the amazing feeling of freefall.
