Safety in this type of jump, as in any form of skydiving, is extreme. The equipment used to perform tandem jumps are parachutes with a much larger size and are specially designed to support the weight of two people. All equipment are in perfect maintenance condition and equipped with the latest security systems.
In addition, all our equipment has a second parachute or “reserve” with similar characteristics to the main one, and each tandem equipment used in Skydive MADRID is equipped with an automatic reserve parachute opening safety element, if necessary.
The price of the tandem jump may vary according to the season and the current promotions. To find out how much a parachute jump costs, check out the tandem pricing and options available.
We usually ask the reservation to be made at least two or tree days before the date of the jump. People who come without a booking will be attended if possible, but always prioritizing advance reservations.
In Skydive MADRID you will enjoy a freefall experience of approximately 50 seconds, reaching a speed close to 120mph, until the instructor deploy the parachute.
The weight limit for the tandem jump is 100kg. People over this weight CANNOT JUMP. If you are above this weight and want to enjoy the excitement of skydiving, you can try our AFF Initiation Course.
Depending on what type of disability, the physical ones do not prevent the jump, but they do condition it, so it is necessary to consult the DZ before making the reservation.
Of course you can! The freefall and parachute environment does not cause any difficulty when it comes to breathing, however, some students tell us that sometimes it is “strange” to breathe during the first seconds of their first jump. This is not caused by the lack of oxygen but by the adrenaline rush and the thrill of making the first jump from an airplane. Sometimes when these emotions are received there are people who hold their breath and do not try to breathe due to a sensory collapse. When you get out the plane, remember to continue breathing normally.
Minors can jump with signed parental authorization, although it is necessary that the signature is made in the center’s offices by one of the parents or legal guardians, so, on the day of the jump, they must be accompanied by one of they.
Wear comfortable clothes such as shorts and a t-shirt if it is hot, or long sleeves, fleece and long pants in winter. You will wear a jumpsuit over your clothes, so if it is very tight or rigid it may be annoying during the ascent on the plane
Sports shoes… it is perfect. Loafers, without laces or with heels or boots are NOT recommended.
If you wear glasses or contact lenses, inform your instructor so that he can give you appropriate glasses so that you have a pleasant trip and do not have to worry.
The time of the reservation is not the time of the jump, but the time that we await your arrival at the Skydiving center. In general and under normal conditions, the activity takes between 2 and 4 hours, counting from the (quitado texto) check-in at the office is completed until you can leave.
You should consider that skydiving is an activity that is carried out outdoors and therefore is subject to weather conditions and other circumstances or setbacks that may influence, such as the commercial air traffic of Madrid airport itself
Because these conditions and for organizational reasons of the dropzone (quitado texto), the schedule may suffer variations, in some (quitado texto) cases. Plan your jump as a full day activity.
We will do our best so that you can take the same flight, along with your colleagues, however, this is not always possible.
You can see each other on the plane, but not in freefall. For safety, a minimum separation time between jumps must be respected, which makes it extremely difficult for you to see him.
During the freefall it is only possible to record one person as each person jumps with his instructor and his camera. In freefall each tandem is separated about 500m horizontally from the next jumper, so technically it is not possible to see him.
In accordance with current regulations, tandem passengers cannot jump from the plane carrying any object that could compromise the safety of the jump, which is applicable to any other element that may interfere with the opening of the parachute, such as bulky costumes.
In the external videos you will jump with your instructor and another skydiver will make the video and / or photos of your tandem jump. On the external recording, you will have footage of boarding, freefall, and landing. All recorded and / or photographed from outside.
This recording is only available for tandem jumps that are made in our skydiving center in OCAÑA.
In the jump + video handycam option, the tandem instructor will record the jump with a camera attached to his hand. In the handycam recording, you will have images of boarding, freefall and flight with the parachute open. NO PHOTO OPTION.
This recording can only be hired in tandem jumps that are carried out in our LILLO skydiving center.
There are several factors that influence the landing. Most of them are very soft landings even being able to land standing up. You will receive clear instructions from your instructor to ensure a good landing after living an incredible experience.
