Experience the rush of tandem sky diving with this 14,000ft freefall in the Yarra Valley. You begin the day with a briefing with your tandem instructor. This includes what to expect and what you will see on the plane flight to height, in freefall, under canopy and upon landing.
Tandem sky diving in the Yarra Valley is the only place to take your first plunge. The 14,000 feet "its all about Freefall" is a Tandem Jump from a massive 14,000 feet giving you the rush of freefall! Once the briefing is over, it will be time to gear up. You will be given a jumpsuit and your instructor will fit you into a harness. You will walk out to the plane and there you will conduct your practice exits. Once all the ground preparation has been completed, it is time to get in the plane and get ready for take-off. As you leave the airfield, you will be treated to a scenic tour of the Yarra Valley and the Dandenong ranges as well as the city of Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay (on a clear day). Once you reach height, it will be time to prepare yourself for the jump. The door opens and as you leave the plane, you and your tandem master will accelerate through the air reaching terminal velocity - 220km/h. Freefall feels like riding a cushion of air similar to riding a big wave. In freefall, your senses will be able to take in views as far as the eye can see. Then finally its time to pull your parachute open.From the loud rushing of air that you hear all around you, the parachute ride is very different as you sail around the sky, still gliding. The landing is easy, just lift your legs. The parachute will glide and you will eventually put your feet down to land.
