Tandem skydiving is a safe and hassle-free way for you to experience the thrill of free fall and the serenity of a parachute ride with the minimum of training. On your tandem jump, you will be attached to your Tandem Master under a parachute built for two. After a 10 minute briefing, you are ready to climb to altitude which is 11 000ft above the ground. Our highly experienced Tandem Masters have THOUSANDS of jumps and will take care of all the necessary details while you simply enjoy the ride. With 40 seconds of freefall and a 5 minute parachute ride, you’ll soon understand just why this is the most addictive sport around! Tandems are ideal for those who want to make a skydive “just to see what it is like” or as a definite once-off: if you decide to take up skydiving as a sport this is an awesome introduction which requires little effort and provides maximum enjoyment. South African Skydiving School boasts some of SA’s best freefall photographers, who will capture the entire experience on digital format for you, to edit onto a DVD – your friends and family will have to believe that you actually did it!

Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is the fast track program designed to turn you into a competent skydiver in the shortest period of time. It will require you to attend ground school (+/- a 5-hour course), which we offer every Saturday or Sunday. On your first jump, two highly experienced and specially trained instructors will hold your parachute harness as you exit the plane and experience 40 seconds of free fall. They will be at your side to coach, assist, and evaluate your performance. After you open your parachute you will enjoy about a 5-minute parachute ride, after which you will need to make your first solo ‘square parachute’ landing, as your instruction has prepared you to do. Subsequent AFF training “Levels” are designed to add to your skills and self-confidence. Starting with Level Four, you will have one Instructor. You can be “off instruction” and qualified as a novice parachutist in as few as ten jumps.
