Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Should I choose tandem or static line jump?
It is really a difficult question to answer. But you can’t go wrong with it, as they both will be unforgettable jumps. The choice should mostly depend on what you want to experience. Static line is a solo jump from the altitude of 1 300 or 1 600 meters. The parachute opens automatically when you exit the aircraft, and the free fall lasts for 3-5 seconds, while the parachute fills with air. You steer the ram-air canopy 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 on your training. You can learn more about static line jump here. Tandem skydive is a jump with an experienced instructor. From the very first jump you will experience the incredible feeling of a free fall on a speed of 200 km/h, which will last for 30-90 seconds depending on the chosen jump altitude (3 000 m, 4 000 m, 5 000 m or 6 000 m). You will soar like a bird and touch the sky! Short briefing takes only 15-20 minutes. All the work is on the instructor's shoulders. You just need to relax and prepare for the ultimate experience!
