If you’re thinking about skydiving or wanting to get an unusual gift for a relative or friend (the best gift a person can get), you are probably asking yourself the following questions!

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions:

How old is "too old" to jump with a parachute?

We do not make the distinction of “being too old" in Skydiving. You just need the desire to do it; every average healthy person can make the jump. A tandem jump does not require a medical examination and if you are in doubt about your health it is sufficient to consult a GP. Just recently we had a person celebrate their 70th birthday with a skydiving jump. 

How long does the jump last?

Jumping is an all-day activity so we recommend not making any plans for the day other than celebrating after the jump.

Pre-jump training lasts about fifteen minutes. The tandem instructor explains what to expect during the jump. Flying by plane to reach the height of 3000 meters takes about 40 minutes. You 'll experience about 40 seconds of Freefall and flying with a parachute for 4 minutes.

It is usually done in 2-3 hours.

I own a GoPro, can I record the jump?

No, unfortunately for security reasons you cannot record with a camera. To record a video successfully you need experience and knowledge. So let the professionals do the filming, so you can enjoy the speed of 200km/h (124 mph).

Can I wear contact lenses?

Yes, we will provide you with goggles that will protect your eyes from the wind and you'll be able to see clearly from above. Tell your instructor that you wear contact lenses.

Can I squba dive before I jump?

You need a break of at least 24 hours between diving and parachuting to prevent decompression. It is very important to inform the instructor about your condition.

Is there a weight limit?

If the tandem passenger is over 95 kg up to 115 kg, the tandem instructor makes a safety assessment of the jump. Over 115kg is not allowed.

What is the cost of the jump?

The price for this pleasure is MKD 12300. For an additional 1,200 denars you get a shot from the air, and for a further 300 denars you get a t-shirt.
