Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Should I choose tandem or static line jump?
It is difficult question to answer. Trust me, every jump is unforgettable. It depends on what you want to experience. Static line is a solo jump from 1350-1500 meters altitude. The parachute opens automatically when you leave the aircraft. The freefall lasts for 3-5 seconds, while the parachute fills with air. You steer the ram-air parachute and land by yourself. Training takes 4-5 hours before the jump and is held in groups. There is a lot of information to learn, so you are required to be attentive, concentrated and patient. You can learn more about static line jump here. Tandem is a jump with an experienced instructor from the 3000-4000 meters altitude. From the first jump, you will experience the most incredible feeling of a free fall, which will last for 30-60 seconds. You will soar like a bird and touch the sky! Preparation takes only 15-20 minutes. All the hard work is on the instructor's shoulders. You just need to relax and prepare for the ultimate experience. You can learn more about tandem jump here.
