more Info


info Tandem Jump: During a tandem jump you experience the fascination of a free fall in the easiest possible manner. You can really enjoy the indescribable feeling of flying in a relaxed way whilst taking in the beautiful Ticino scenery. This is because your experienced tandem instructor takes over all necessary functions. Upon completion of a fitness test – a 500 meter run – your instructor will brief you by explaining the special tandem equipment and run you through the jump procedures. You will be equipped with a jump suit, harness, helmet and goggles, and then flown by a Pilatus Porter to the jump location 4'000 meters above Locarno. After a buddy check, you will experience approximately 50 seconds of free fall - fastened tightly with your instructor -until the opening altitude of 1'500 meters. In the following phase of silent flight under an open canopy, you and your instructor will ultimately approach and land directly in front of the Para Centro.

AFF First Jump: 
With an AFF First Jump you will experience free fall twice. After a preparatory tandem jump, you will be introduced to the sport of skydiving using the Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) First Jump method. The AFF method combines advanced skydiving techniques and the most modern equipment in order to allow instruction jumps to be directly carried out. The AFF programme requires that all jumps are intensively prepared, so that during the free fall you can complete the programme and be open to corrective measures as seen by your instructors. During your first jump, you will be held by two experienced skydiving instructors during free fall. After the parachute opens, you will be alone with your parachute and must apply the procedures you learned for canopy control. The AFF programme involves a thorough preparation of each jump and is therefore spread over two days so that enough time is allocated for you to process the procedures. In order to provide ideal training conditions to complete this intensive course, a maximum of 3 participants per instructor is allowed.
