Safety Briefing

Safety is our top priority, and so you will receive detailed instructions on how to jump (safety briefing) prior your tandem skydive. The briefing is carried out by one of our tandem instructors at the drop zone and includes general information about tandem skydiving as well as all safety-relevant postures that you have to take during your jump. We have described all relevant postures below.

Exit position:

  • While you are already outside the plane, your tandem instructor is still sitting on the edge of the plane

  • Hands in your passenger harness, shoulders back

  • Bend your legs under the plane
  • Push you hips to the front (arching)

  • Hold your body in this position
