So its the start of the year, its new years resolution time… Who wants to do something dynamic, daring and dangerous? Well – we aren’t dangerous, but we are a bit extreme here at UKP. Here is what you need to know if you are thinking about skydiving in 2019 (you should also know, we are going to look after you every step of the way)
Tandem skydiving has been around since the 80’s. Because most people only jump once to check it off of the bucket list, tandem skydiving is the most popular way to experience the world of skydiving. It involves a student who is connected to a specially certified tandem instructor. The pair jump together, often with a videographer to document the event. The instructor deploys a parachute that is specially designed to handle the weight of two skydivers.
