Skydiving for the first time? Go Tandem Skydiving in Sydney

In Sydney, you don’t have to be an experienced skydiver or a professional to try the adventure sport! 

The basic premise of skydiving is simple: you will be strapped into a harness and flown up to a certain altitude after which you will skydive out of an airplane. The freefall approximately lasts about 60 seconds after which the parachute is deployed. You will then have the chance to take in the views while you glide back down to Earth over the next 6-8 minutes. There are two sub-types of outdoor skydiving: tandem skydiving and solo skydiving.

What is Tandem Skydive?

Tandem skydiving is the answer to first time slydivers' stress towards the sport. Unlike solo skydiving where you can control every aspect of your jump, during a tandem skydive, you will be accompanied by a liscenced professional every step of the way.

By opting for a tandem skydive, a professional, licensed skydiver will be attached to you by a harness. He/she will control the jump entirely, allowing you to happily enjoy the view. This is the most preferred option by those who are new to skydiving since it is safe, the required preparation is minimal and most of the work in the air is done by a tandem skydiving instructor. All it takes is 30 minutes of training and instructions regarding body movements to adapt and safety rules to follow.

Tandem Skydive Options

Sydney - Skydive Newcastle Beach Tandem Freefall
Sydney - Skydive Newcastle Beach Tandem Freefall
  • Jump from 15,000 feet up in the air over Newcastle and freefall for more than a minute before opening the parachute and landing.
  • Peel your eyes for the best bird’s-eye views of Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, and its bewitching beaches.
  • Leave any concerns of safety behind with the additional protection provided by our highly trained tandem jumpmasters and support staff, as well as our state-of-the-art, failure-proof equipment.

Solo skydiving

Solo skydiving is the preferred option for experts and professionals. Those who have previous experience and/or a skydiving license commonly opt to dive solo. Unlike tandem skydiving, you are completely in control of your dive: from the jump to the parachute deployment and landing. However, it is important to know that even newbies in the sport can go skydiving solo. You will undergo intensive training; about the different equipment functionalities and use, how to exit the aircraft, controlling the freefall and landing, the right way to deploy the parachute and more.

What to Expect on Your First Skydive Tandem Fall in Sydney

1. Skydive slot availability depends on the weather

There are several factors that play into your skydive -- most importantly the weather. Depending on the weather and availability of slots your scheduled skydive might move up or down. Book a slot early in the morning, around 08:00 AM, to plan your day accordingly. If the weather is on your side, before you skydive you will be required to sign a few forms and complete a training session. 

2. Arrival at skydive facility

Upon your arrival at the skydive center, an expert skydiving support team will greet you. The team will take you through the safety procedures and will also readily answer any queries of yours.

3. A 30 Minute Training Session

With just a short 30-minute training session, you can go tandem skydiving. The main difference between a solo and tandem skydive is that while in the former you skydive alone, in the latter, you will jump with a trained professional skydiver attached to you by a harness. The instructor controls the jump, parachute deployment and landing completely.

4. Gearing up and technical checks

After the session, you will be fitted up in your gear and prepped up for your skydiving adventure. The instructors will then lead you to the specially-outfitted plane. On the way to 15,000 feet, you will be fastened to your tandem jumpmaster. Before you make the jump, the jumpmaster will handle and re-check the technical aspects, such as going over your harnesses in order to ensure you have a safe jump.

5. The Tandem Fall

The entire skydiving experience lasts about 5-7 minutes. The immediate part after the jump -- the free-fall -- lasts about 60 seconds. Once the parachute is deployed, you gently soar over Earth for about 5-7 minutes before landing.
