Tandem Skydiving or Tandem Parachuting has become really popular over the last few years. It involves the “student” being attached by harness to the instructor, who does all the hard work from getting on to the plane until both are safely on the ground.
The Skydive involves free-falling from a height of up to 15,000 feet, at speeds in the region of 120-130 mph, followed by a long canopy ride to the ground under a large square parachute.
The skydive normally lasts for no more than 5 minutes and culminated with a soft landing at a precise and pre-determined location, the Drop Zone.
The training required is perhaps surprisingly quite minimal…..usually only 30 minutes. Training usually consists of learning how to exit the plane, how to do a few manoeuvres , how to let out the main canopy and how to land. Tandem skydiving is a good introduction to solo skydiving.
Most Tandem Skydive go well, and are completed incident free. Accordingly, in the vast majority of skydives, the student has a thrilling and exhilarating experience. Very occasionally the student experiences some nausea, but mostly it is an experience to pass on to the grandchildren.
However the whole experience is potentially dangerous, and if it goes wrong the consequences can be disastrous, if not fatal. If it does go wrong, you need specialist advice. You need solicitors with experience in the field, solicitors who have access to the relevant experts. You need Amelans Solicitors
