Skydive with a view on one of the most impressive landscapes in Europe! The view of the Algarve from 15,000 ft will amaze you with its blue ocean, green fields and rocky cliffs. The team from Skydive Seven Algarve makes sure that your experience is safe and you feel comfortable before the jump. That's the reason why our instructors hold professional skydiving licences, our equipment is up to the highest safety standards and we keep our planes in the best shape. Our crew is looking forward to meeting you and taking you for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure on the Portuguese coast!
- Meeting and preparation:
We meet at our base at Aeródromo Municipal de Portimão in Alvor at the booked time. We can also pick you up from the area of Alvor and Portimão. Once there, you get to know your tandem master, the plane, the equipment. At the dropzone, you will receive the safety briefing and learn the rules to follow during your skydive. Your tandem master will explain you in-depth every part of the upcoming activity. You can ask us everything and we will happily tell you all the details so you feel comfortable in the air. Then, you will head to the plane to take-off and start your adventure.
- Flight and jump:
Our ride in the plane lasts 10-15 minutes. Before reaching the jump altitude, your tandem master does the final safety check and reviews the free fall body position - "arch" and "fit legs" for landing. When the door opens, you feel the wind and the noise of the plane. Then the pilot reduces the speed which is the sign to jump. You will enjoy 70 seconds of free fall when you reach the speed of around 200 km/h. Then your instructor will deploy the main parachute.
- Landing and return:
Your paragliding panorama flight will last 5-7 minutes. In order to land, your tandem master will perform a landing pattern just like an aircraft with the use of the predetermined downwind. You will be instructed to lift your legs to land softly. We land at the airfield in the area of the airport.
