Jump into the friendly skies near Bitburg, Germany, without going through extensive training. You will be given about a 15-minute briefing by your tandem master before jumping together. The jump will take place at an altitude between 10,000 and 13,000 feet above sea level. Thanks to a special harness, you will be securely connected to your tandem master. During the flight you'll get a beautiful view of the Eifel region. Once jumping height is achieved, you'll take the plunge and during the roughly 45-second free fall you'll reach speeds of up to 125 miles per hour. The parachute will open at around 1,500 meters giving you a five to 10-minute gentle float down to the safe landing.
