A tandem skydive is one of the most popular adventure activities in Portugal, and the easiest way to experience the stunning beauty Portugal has to offer.
Once you’ve met all the team, you’ll have a briefing on the skydiving procedures and the body positioning to be taken during the jump. You’ll then be properly equipped by the team, finally ready to get on the plane. After takeoff, you’ll enjoy a scenic flight over the Alentejo plains, which will last about 15 minutes, until you jump.
Upon reaching the selected altitude, it’s time to jump attached to the instructor. You’ll be using a device designed to carry two people. Once you’re out the door, the freefall will last approximately 50/60 seconds at 200km/h. When the parachute open, you’ll fly under the canopy for an average of seven minutes.
After peaceful moments of enjoying the stunning backdrops that surround you, your instructor will make a gentle landing.
A tandem jump is our most popular and the ideal way to try skydiving for the first time without any experience needed at all. All our expert tandem instructors all have thousands of skydives and you will jump using a large parachute specifically designed for two people.
According to French surveys based on world statistics, the sports considered most dangerous above parachuting are: 1 - Hang Gliding; 2 - Mountaineering; 3 - MTB; 4 - Diving; 5 - Motor racing; parachuting is still ahead, therefore not being in the “Top 5”. Parachuting is undoubtedly a risky sport, but this risk is minimized by a series of equipment and attitudes that contribute to make this sport increasingly safe. Today, modern skydiving is extremely safe.
This is usually the question that everyone asks when it comes to skydiving. However, this is not the real problem for parachutists, as each jump is always performed with two parachutes: one main and one reserve. Parachutes are constructed in such a way that they never miss an opening, unless they are folded poorly. In addition, parachutes used in instruction must have a safety system that makes it impossible to reach the ground without at least one open parachute.
All candidates who are 16 years of age or older (with parental authorization for children under 18), weighing 100 kg or less and who check the conditions registered on our website, are able to jump. No extraordinary physical pre-preparation is necessary, so any person in normal conditions can jump and experience one of the most incredible sensations they can have in life: “Fly!”.
There are several expressions spoken by each person after performing a tandem jump, among them: "Great Adventure" ... "Feeling of Freedom" ... "Unique Experience" ...! Undoubtedly, this experience will mark a phase in your life, and as many people have said and continue to say: “It changed my life!” … “Decisions that are difficult to make, that have become easy”…!
