So you’ve decided to do one of the most exciting activities in the world by doing a tandem jump with us.
All you have to do is book a day and a time, and you’re all set!
Here is a summary of the steps involved in a tandem jump at Nouvel Air Skydiving.
Whether you’re alone or part of a group, we recommend that you book a reservation for your jump either by phone or online, via our electronic reservation form. This will enable us to welcome you better! The longer in advance you book, the better your chances of getting the arrival time you prefer.
On the day of your jump, be at the front desk at the time you reserved. Wear running shoes or sandals with buckles, weather-appropriate clothing and a big smile! The training for your tandem jump should take between 30 and 60 minutes.
About 20 minutes before you board the airplane, we suit you up. In other words, we help you put on a skydiving jumpsuit as well as a harness specially designed for tandem jumps. Your relatives and friends can stay with you during this step.
Then you head towards the boarding area where you take your last photos before getting on the plane and where your relatives and friends wave you off. During the plane ride up, try to enjoy the scenery and let the excitement build! Final destination: 4000 metres up!
A few minutes before you jump, your harness is hooked up to your instructor’s. When it’s time, you move towards the airplane exit for the long-awaited moment: 60 seconds of freefall at 200 km/h!
When the parachute opens, the fun isn’t over! For about 5 to 8 minutes, you get to soar through the skies of Farnham, hanging under a canopy. This part of your jump will give you a breathtaking view of the Eastern Townships. If you ask, the instructor will show you how to steer the parachute and tell you about some of the characteristics of canopy flight.
When you land, you will receive a certificate to make your return to earth official. Your feet may be physically back on the ground, but you will most likely have your head in the clouds for several weeks after your jump!
