A tandem skydive is the ultimate way to experience the thrill of freefall with minimum preparation. A tandem passenger, or student, will receive an intensive briefing including an introduction to the equipment that will be used, and how it works and what to expect during your skydive. Thereafter, your instructor will assist with the fitting of your harness, take you out to the aircraft, and take care of all the work while you experience a thrilling 40 second freefall from 11,000ft. A tandem skydive does not give you a license to jump but it will get you hooked on skydiving. If you want to pursue the sport you will have to attend either the Static Line First Jump course or the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) progression course.
Skydive Robertson is the only dropzone in the Western Cape to use a third person to video and take pictures of your while you skydive; all other dropzones just stick a handycam on the wrist of the tandem instructor. Your camera flyer will film you before, during and after your skydive and present you with your commemorative video when you leave.
