A tandem skydive is the most common start in skydiving. It is a good challenge for everyone as it is not the most natural thing to jump at 4000 meters from a plane. Have a good one !!!

“ I did, it, I survived a fall from a perfectly good aeroplane at 15,000 ft, whilst strapped to a parachute, I could live without the initial fall out of the plane - literally, free fall is very noisy, but i loved the spirals with the parachute, they could hear my laughter on the beach long before I was identifiable as a person with a chute”

Karen L Tandem skydive Challenge

Contributorgold Karen L Could not have picked a better day for it. Clear blue skies, no wind, perfect visibility and not quite as cold as we thought it should have been. Totally loved it ... and raised a serious amount of money for a great charity at the same time. Result !

Catherine G Tandem skydive Challenge

Sports-iqbronze Catherine G answered the question Fear
