Q. Can one camera person film my skydive, and a friend's skydive at the same time? A. We can include your friends in the ground footage, and the interview taken in the aircraft. When you exit the aircraft you will be leaving about 30 seconds apart from one another and although our camera flyers are good, they can’t cover that much sky and produce a video that meets our high standards. Q.Can my friends and I all go up in the same plane? A. That all depends on how many friends you have doing their skydive, and which aircraft we are using on the day of your booking. Our plane can take 2 tandems with dedicated video and photos or five tandems with handy cam or no video. If you have a larger group thats not a problem as we would simply jump you in groups. Q.Is skydiving safe? A. Safety always comes first, fun comes in a close second. Our instructors are APF accredited and highly experienced, our equipment is maintained to higher than recommended standards and all our crew abide by our stringent safety pro-forma.Skydiving is an extreme sport, and like any extreme sport there is a certain amount of risk involved. All incidents, as small as they may seem are reported to the Australian Parachute Federation. Last years statistics stated that 1 in 10,000 skydives resulted in accident or injury. Compared with the statistics for registered cars in reported accidents in NSW being 9.8% the most dangerous part of your day is going to be driving to the drop zone! Q. Is it normal to be nervous? A. Yes, it is absolutely normal to feel nervous. Jumping out of a perfectly good airplane is not something that normal people do every day. You are about to freefall towards Earth at speeds in excess of 220 kph from over 4.5 kilometers up, if your adrenaline isn’t pumping, then I think we had better check for a pulse! You will arrive nervous and maybe even a little scared, but by the time you leave you will be feeling ten foot tall and bullet proof! Q. What happens if I am afraid of heights? A. Believe it or not, a good percentage of skydivers and pilots are afraid of heights. From 14,000 ft up you will not experience vertigo like you would climbing a ladder or standing on top of a building. Q. How fast will I be going in freefall? A. The terminal velocity (maximum fall rate) of a single person in freefall in approximately 120 mph or 230 kph. A tandem will fall faster than this but is slowed down to regular terminal velocity by the release of a small stabilising parachute called a drogue. Q. Does it hurt when the parachute opens? A. You will feel a slight jolt as the canopy opens, but as long you put all your important parts out of the way when your tandem instructor is gearing up you will be fine. Q. How hard is the landing? A. As a tandem student you will be instructed to lift your legs up in front of you so your tandem instructor can touch the ground first. If you don’t land on your feet, you will glide in on your bottom and the landing impact is just like stepping off of a chair or a step. Q. How long will I be under the parachute? A. It does not matter what altitude you decide to skydive from, all of the tandem skydives have the same canopy ride. Your tandem instructor will deploy your parachute at approximately 5,500 feet. This will give you about 5 minutes to soak up the spectacular views as you fly around under canopy. Q. Can I talk in freefall? A. You can speak in freefall, but nobody will hear you. The sound you will hear in freefall is a white noise, imagine sticking your head out the window of a car travelling at 230 kph. Q. What does freefall feel like? A. It is the closest a human can get to flying and no words could do it justice! When you enter freefall you are accelerated by gravity so you will not experience the stomach lurches associated with roller coasters. Freefall is something that has to be experienced to be believed, it is definitely the fifth element. Q. What happens if I get motion sickness? A. It is very rare that anyone is sick in freefall. If you are prone to motion sickness eat a light breakfast or lunch at least an hour before your booking time. If you do start to feel queasy under canopy, let your tandem instructor know, they have sick bags at the ready for those rare occasions!
