We think everyone should jump out of a plane at least once in their lives. It’s hard to describe the feeling, but you can imagine it, hanging out the side of a plane, attached to a highly experienced instructor and then simply falling away from the plane at up to 200kph. A truly bucket list experience.
It takes a certain kind of person to jump from an aircraft at 9,000ft into thin air. It takes courage.
Expect sensory overload as your mind, body and soul fight against every natural self-preserving urge. The challenge is immense. Harnessed by space age materials to a qualified Jumpmaster, you step out of that aircraft door and for up to 60 seconds freefall at 200 kph – terminal velocity!
After a 15 minute scenic flight to altitude, you will nudge towards the edge of the plane before being thrown out! Keep your head up, smile at your skydive photographer and take in the stunning surroundings. After an exhilarating freefall, you will experience a 4-5 minute parachute ride, floating safely back down to the skydive drop zone.
Why is this Chuffed Worthy?
Spending some time with the friendly & professional NZONE Skydive crew at their base was a good way for the Chuffed team to relax before taking the leap! It was easy to see why these guys are New Zealand’s only tandem skydiving company to have won New Zealand’s supreme tourism award.
