Tandem Sky Dive
On Tandem Sky Diving you get to do a freefall jump attached to a highly experienced sky dive instructor. The jump will be made from the highest altitude permitted by the local air traffic control at the time of the jump which is up to 13,000 feet.
Please bring these 3 essential items when you come:
The day of your Tandem skydive starts with pickup from your Pattaya hotel (This is included in the price and you can choose either 07:00 or 10:00am pick up) or, alternatively you can catch our shuttle from Udom Suk BTS station in Bangkok (this costs 500 baht per person). On arrival at the skydive center you will need to register in the office and choose any video/photo options that you require (Don't worry, as long as you have a video you can choose to upgrade to Deluxe video after you land). Once you have completed the payment you will be given a sticker and escorted to the manifest window to be allocated a place(s) on a flight. We work on "First come, First served" as there are too many variables to allocate individual time slots (weather, air traffic control, Instructor availability etc) so you may be given a red disk that will flash and buzz when your needed to get ready to jump (these work within 800 meters of the main office). The coffee shop/restaurant is located upstairs and you can watch all the action on the Drop zone from there.
Prior to the jump your instructor will brief you on what you are required to do (this takes only 5-10 minutes) and then your camera flyer will conduct a short "Interview" prior to proceeding to the emplaning point.
From here it is onwards and upwards as you sit with your instructor and camera person as the aircraft climbs to 13,000 Feet. After a short time the door slides open and you exit the aircraft (Please watch the sample video's) time in free fall is 55 seconds to 1 minute falling at 120KM per hour and the instructor will open the parachute at about 5000 feet AGL, you can then enjoy 7-8 minutes under the large parachute whilst taking in the Ocean views of the Gulf of Thailand ,and to the South , Pattaya, whilst the metropolis of Bangkok is away to the North.
The Instructor will let you assist in steering the parachute down to land on the drop zone where the cameraman will be waiting to record your landing and reaction after what is truly a memorable and Life changing experience.
After the jump you will need to wait 20-25 minutes whilst your video is edited and then return to Pattaya/Bangkok. The Bus's do not go at any scheduled time but will go when a group of jumpers have finished (You can ask in the office when the bus is due to depart)
Don't forget to collect your Video and first jump certificate and all personal belongings. We hope you enjoy your Tandem Skydive and will add to our reviews on social media.
Please note we aim to make the whole event last no more than 5 hours from pick up to drop off (A bit longer if you travel to/from Bangkok) We don't always achieve this if the weather is unkind but we do have a 87% success record
