TYPES OF DIVES
TANDEM | Attached safely to an instructor, this is a great way to give skydiving
a whirl. Because you’re jumping secured to a professional, you don’t need to have the
in-depth training/preparation you would when learning to skydive solo. Tandem jumps
are also popular gifts for friends and family.
ACCELERATED FREE-FALL | This recognised course, an extensive program that
includes a number of stages, is designed to teach you to skydive solo. You’ll be
required to participate in on-the-ground training and, when first cleared to jump, it will
be in the company of two instructors available to assist during free-fall.
STATIC LINE | When jumping static line, it’s generally from a low altitude. You’re
attached to the aircraft through a line at one end and your parachute at the other, so
your fall pulls the line tight, activating your main chute. Over subsequent jumps, you
will gradually increase altitude and free-fall, and learn to release your own chute.
BIBBULMUN & BEYOND
Explore the beauty of the Bibbulmun Track in this nine-day guided tour led by
a great not-for-profit group of walking pros. By night, head into rural villages
and tuck into local produce for dinner. By day, climb mammoth boulders and trek
through awe-inspiring jarrah and karri forests. How’s the serenity?
Perth Hills, May 4-12.
