Tandem Skydiving near Gauteng
Do you want to get out of the house and go on an adrenaline-rushed adventure? Skydive the Ranch is your answer to an outdoor adventure that you will never forget! We offer tandem skydiving for people who want to experience a jump without needing specialised training, as they are attached to a professional skydiver who will take care of the parachute and the landing. As a result, you can simply enjoy the views and the rush of freefalling at speeds of up to 200 km/h!
How Does Tandem Skydiving Work?
Tandem skydiving consists of a single parachute jump where you share one parachute system with a professional skydiving instructor. You will be harnessed together, with the instructor on your back to allow you to get the best views when you jump. Since you are strapped to a professional skydiver, you do not need to go through skydiving courses or get certified to qualify for such a jump. Therefore, if you want to experience a parachute jump without any prior training, tandem skydiving is an ideal solution!
Before the jump, your instructor will run you through safety and logistic elements of the jump itself before you strap into your harness and head off. Our Atlas Angel will take you up to 11 000 ft (about 3,35 km), at which point you and your instructor will jump out of the airplane and start your freefall. The freefall part of the jump will last about 40 seconds before your instructor pops the parachute, kicking off a 4-minute chute ride down to the drop zone. With tandem skydiving, you can experience 5 minutes of total freedom.
The Prerequisites for Tandem Skydiving
For your own safety, there are several prerequisites to comply with before you are cleared for a tandem skydiving experience. First, your body weight cannot exceed 100 kg. Along with this, you will be evaluated on your height-weight proportion by our instructor to ensure that you are eligible for a tandem skydive. If you are younger than 18, you will require parental consent. You will also need to sign our waiver before you can jump. We recommend that you wear casual and comfortable clothes, along with sporty shoes that have laces to keep them on your feet while jumping.
