We meet either at our office at the big yellow hanger by Taupo Airport 10 minutes before the booked time, or we arrange a pick-up for you from Taupo 20 minutes before the start time (we also have pickups from Rotorua available at 12.30 pm each day, please email us to enquire). Once at the destination, you fill in the necessary paperwork and get to know your tandem master. You can also leave your personal belongings in one of the lockers in the office. Then, you learn about the details of your skydive during the theoretical part of the preparation as well as review the functions and usage of skydive equipment. Next, it is the time to head to the plane!
- Flight and jump:
First, you experience a very relaxing scenic plane ride up to 18,500ft. From the plane, you have a breathtaking view over Lake Taupo which is the biggest lake in the Southern Hemisphere. At the moment, you reach the desired altitude, the door opens and you sit on the edge of the plane in a full harness with your tandem master behind you and attached to you. When you jump, you feel the fresh air on your face and adrenaline in your veins. With the speed up to 200km/h, you experience a freefall for 75 seconds until your tandem master opens the parachute. Then, you float to the ground for a couple of minutes, surrounded by the purest landscape of New Zealand.
