A tandem-parachute jump offers you the chance to experience the free fall completely safe and after a short briefing time. 4.000 or even 6.000 metres – your decision!
Video of jump
A cameraman will always stay at your side, even in free fall. In this way, you can enjoy your experience with friends over and over again, as we will provide a recording in HD picture and sound quality from the beginning of briefing until touchdown.
Pictures of jump
The ideal addition to your tandem jump. A skydiver equipped with a camera will document your jump from beginning of briefing to touchdown, taking 2 pictures per second during free fall. After the jump, you will receive the pictures on a digital storage medium.
Our vouchers are an ideal gift for those, who want to give something really special. The voucher value can be chosen freely.
Ferlach is located a few kilometres from Klagenfurt in the centre of the Rosental, a valley on the Drava. The Drava is a river which is dammed up to the water reservoir of Ferlach.
On one side the Sattnitz mountain range, south of it the breath-taking main ridge of the Karawanks – a view you won’t forget!
Bizarre mountains and spectacular rock formations, within the sunniest and most weather-resistant region of the Alps. If you want to see the Dolomites of Lienz from a different perspective and jump of an airplane over a big tailgate, then this appointment is just right for you.
Within the Lavant Valley, surrounded by Koralpe and Saualpe, with a view on the Karawanks in the south and the Alps in the northwest, the village of Wolfsberg offers a view on the beautiful variety of Carinthia with its valleys, mountains and lakes.
The course of the jump
Off you go!
Adjustment of passenger harness
To be safely connected with the tandem master during the free fall, all you need is comfortable clothing. You will get long trousers, a jumper, protective goggles as well as clothes for dirt protection straight from the parachute centre.
Briefing for the course of the jump
Your tandem master will brief you in the course of the jump, you basically can’t do anything wrong. But there are a few things which help your tandem master and add to your safety. The briefing takes about 5 to 10 minutes.
Boarding the plane
Seating order and behaviour in the plane will be explained, harnesses will be checked one more time.
Repetition of briefing
Before the drop zone is reached, the most important things will be reviewed again.
Connecting of the harnesses
The passenger harness will be connected safely with the harness of the tandem master. The harness material has a breaking load of 3.000 kg. The passenger harness is connected on four different locations with the harness of the tandem master.
As practised during the briefing, the jump position is taken up. The tandem pilot and the passenger sit down at the open plane door and let their legs hang outside. The passenger holds on to the passenger belts at the side, puts his head in his neck and pushes his pelvis forward. Time to go!
Hands are kept on the harness until the tandem master signals via a previously agreed tapping sign that the hands can be removed from the harness now. After a brief acceleration period of about 7 to 10 seconds, you will stay in free fall for about one minute at a velocity of about 200 km/h. Nothing comes closer to the feeling of freedom!
Opening of the parachute
The parachute slows down the fall gently. The parachute takes 300 m, which are about 6 seconds to slow you down from 200 km/h back to nearly 0 km/h. The tandem master will start the opening procedure at about 1.500 m above ground at the latest.
The open parachute
At about 1.000 m above earth, your tandem master will explain to you, how you let the fully steerable surface glider float down to earth. If you want to glide gently or descend rapidly in spirals, it is up to you.
You are back on Mother Earth. Shortly before touching down, your tandem master will signal you to lift your legs to make sure, the tandem master touches down first. Only when the parachute ceases to move forward you can put your legs on the ground.
Just for fun
What they say
after the drop
I was really excited before the jump.
When we finally ascended, the tension was suddenly gone.
After the jump, it was simply just fabulous.
Many thanks to my friends for this fabulous gift and
an experience, I will definitely never forget! Top!
I have experienced a lot, but jumping from a height of 4.000 m
was a whole new experience, even for me! :-)
