During a tandem jump you can experience the fascination of free fall
in the easiest manner. You can enjoy the indescribable feeling of flying
as well as the great Ticinese panorama completely unencumbered, since
your experienced tandem instructor handles all important features of the
jump for you. After a 500 metre-run fitness test, your instructor will
explain the jump procedure as well as the tandem equipment to you. Then
you will be equipped for flying with a jump suit, harness, helmet and
glasses and lifted in our Pilatus Porter to 4000 metres over Locarno.
After a mutual readiness check with your tandem instructor, you will experience
approximately 50 seconds of free fall - fastened tightly with your instructor
-until the opening altitude of 1500 metres. In the following phase of
silent flight under an open canopy, you and your instructor will ultimately
approach and land directly in front of the Para Centro.
