For all those dreaming of skydiving and doubting to try a solo jump or unwilling to attend special training, why not make it on Sicily? If you are planning a trip to Italy, do include this unforgettable event into your vacation.
You have a chance to get some powerful emotions from a freefall in picturesque Ragusa! Tandem parachuting is a wonderful choice for amateur extremals. The jump is performed from over 4000 meter (15000 feet) height, with an experienced certified instructor who ensures that you land safely and without any trouble at all. Spring, summer and autumn are all suitable times of the year for this amusement. In case of unfavorable weather conditions that may jeopardize participants’ safety or be unsuitable for the jump, a new date can be agreed. If it is not possible to reschedule, the whole sum will be refunded.
No training skills are required, so it is the best way to experience adrenaline buzz without having to attend a special education course for parachute-jumpers. In less than 25 minutes, you will be ready to jump. All the steps will be revealed to you, including what happens with your body in the air and what pose you should take, or how to open and control the parachute. In fact, you will even be able to navigate the parachute by yourself (with your instructor controlling your safety meanwhile). You will spend about 60 seconds in the free fall condition, then the instructor will open the parachute, and you will be enjoying the surrounding breathtaking view from under the canopy, up until the touchdown time.
You should be at least 16 years old to try skydiving; under-age participants are to have a permission from their parent or representant, and appear at the aerodrome accompanied by a parent or representant.
It is recommended to put on convenient shoes and long trousers.
If you are a contact lenses wearer, you should inform your instructor about this in advance, so he provides you with special protective glasses.
