This will be a day in your life, that you step out of your comfort zone and take an airplane to an altitude of 12,000 ft. and then JUMP from it. You’ll then freefall with your Tandem Skydive Instructor toward the earth for 45 seconds at speeds exceeding 200 kph, before landing on the beautiful Gold Coast shore. If you think you’re prepared for an adrenaline rush such as this, then contact us today and let’s your day Skydiving over the Gold Coast started.
You’ll start by meeting your Instructor, who will give you a short briefing that will go over all the safety equipment used and the precautions that you will take including how to properly exit the airplane and touchdown techniques. You will also get a chance to ask any questions you may have before you make the leap! Let us assure that you couldn’t be in better hands as your professionally trained tandem jump instructors have immaculate records.
After you’ve have your brief, it’s then time to climb on-board the plane and take to the sky. You’ll ascend to that altitude of 12,000 ft. and have some amazing photo opportunities of the Gold Coast while up there. Then it’s time to get the show on the road and JUMP!
As you move to the door of the plane, you will probably be second guessing that great idea to jump from a plane, Right? Well remember, this is a Tandem Skydive, so all that you have to do is relax and take in the amazing views as you freefall. Your Instructor is there to pull the rip cord, so you don’t even have to be reminded to do that.
Once you have spent approximately 45 seconds freefalling, the chute will open and you will then float gracefully to the stunning shores of the Gold Coast. What a landing pad!
You will receive a Jump Certificate not only to prove you did it, but as a reminder of the day that you stepped out of your comfort zone into nothing and you are ready to do it again!
All that is left is for you to book a day and time and come have an amazing time!

Q. Is there a weight limit to be able to jump?
A. Yes 100kg. You will need to be assessed on the day by our drop zone safety officer.
Q. Can any age jump?
A. Yes, the minimum age for tandem skydiving in Australia is 14 years old. Any person wishing to partake in skydiving who is under 18 years of age needs their parent or guardian permission.
Q. Can my skydive and a friend's skydive be filmed at the same time?
A. We can include your friends in the ground footage and the interview taken in the aircraft but when you exit the aircraft you will be leaving about 30 seconds apart from one another.
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 that’s 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.
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 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. How fast will I be going in freefall?
A. The terminal velocity (maximum fall rate) of a single person in freefall, is approximately 230 km/h. 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.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!
Q. Where will I be landing?
A. We have two landing areas, North Kirra beach and Len Peak Oval. The landing area that you will use is determined by the weather conditions. In light winds it is safer to land people on grass, in stronger winds it is safer to land people on the beach. We will always do what is in the best interest for the safety of our customers. Both landing areas are equally spectacular and you will get to fly your parachute right above town over the beautiful Gold Coast beaches.
