We prioritize your safety and comfort that's why we put emphasis on the quality of our service. Our equipment and two Pilatus Porter PC-6 planes meet the highest safety standards to provide you with the best gear. Meet our multilingual friendly team in Alvor in Algarve and skydive from 12,000 ft!
- 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 you need to know before your skydive jump. 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 freefall 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 40-45 seconds of free fall and you will reach the speed of 160-180 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 and land softly on the ground. We land at the airfield in the area of the airport.
