Then, in the open air you will experience flying – free falling through the sky for about half a minute reaching a speed of 200 Km/h, before the instructor opens the canopy and you get to glide down in air for about 5 minutes, taking in the beautiful panoramic views of the spectacular scenery on your way down until you safely land at the dropzone.
You will have a complete 360º, bird’s eye view of Mauritius's awesome coastal, inland and mountain scenery.This is your once in a lifetime chance to fly over the top of one of the most spectacular island’s in the world.
About Tandem Skydiving
Tandem skydiving refers to a type of skydiving where a student skydiver is connected via a harness to a tandem instructor. The instructor guides the student through the whole jump from exit through freefall, piloting the canopy, and landing. The student needs only minimal instructions before making a tandem jump.
Tandem skydiving is a very popular training method for first time skydivers. The training before the jump may consist of basic training including how to exit the aircraft, how to do manoeuvres in freefall, and how to deploy the main canopy themselves.
However, the tandem skydiving instructor remains primarily responsible for safe and timely parachute deployment. Once you take the big leap, you will come to the understanding that it is possible to overcome your fears, no matter how big they may seem, making it much easier for you to achieve your goals in life without being riddled with self-doubt.
Modern parachute equipment is very reliable and instances of malfunctions are rare. However, in the unlikely event of a fault with the main parachute, the system is fitted with a back-up reserve parachute to guarantee maximum safety.
