TANDEM FAQs

general QUESTIONS

Who can I bring with?

You can bring with you any spectator you want, even pets! But your family, friends and everybody else will need to stay behind the marked fences at all times. They can wait for you to land safely in the bar beside the hangar or in the hangar premises, but keep in mind that pets are not allowed in the hangar!

How should I prepare for my activity?

There is no need for preparation of any kind, but we advise you to stay healthy and take care of your self before your activity.

What can I eat and drink before?

You can eat as you would normally, just we recommend not to fill yourself up with food as that may result in sickness once below the parachute and all the steep turns. We actually recommend drinking a lot of fluids before, as the heat in summer and the excitement can take a lot of your energy. With fluids we don't mean alcohol drinks as that is forbidden before the jump.

VIDEO OF MY JUMP

How does video look like?

When choosing a video, a solo skydiver will join you on your jump and capture all the key moments with his camera. From ground preparation, giving instructions, to ground interview, boarding and flight with the plane, jump out and freefall. Once your parachute opens the camera skydiver will land before you, to capture your landing. The video consist of our promo intro, followed by the video of your jump, edited with music. You will get your video in a digital form so you can instantly share it on your social pages.

When will I get the video?

Normally it takes us about 3 days for the video to get made. In busy boogies or events that may prolong to 5 days. We will send you the video via WeTransfer, you will get a download link to your email. If our camera skydivers are not busy they can show you the jump right away on the computer. 

Can I bring my own camera?

Absolutely NOT. Our camera skydivers and tandem instructors use specially rigged helmets and camera mounts for the safety of our sport. You are not allowed to have any cameras on you or to use your cameras during all phases of tandem skydive. Your friends and family can capture any video or photo while your ground preparation with your own cameras and phones, once you get to boarding no other cameras are allowed.
