Yarra Valley Skydiving 14 000 Feet
Price From: $470
Your day with us includes your sky diving experience and wine tasting at a Yarra Valley Winery. We begin the day with a briefing with your tandem sky diving instructor. This includes what to expect and what you will see on the plane flight to height, in freefall, under canopy and upon landing. The briefing takes approximately 15 minutes. Our tandem jump masters have completed 1000's jumps and are members of the Australian Parachute Federation. Once the briefing is over, it will be time to gear up in preparation for your sky diving experience. You will be given a jumpsuit and your instructor will fit you into a harness. You will walk out to the plane and there you will conduct your practise exits. Once all the ground preparation has been completed, it is time to get in the plane and get ready for take-off! You can expect to jump from a height of 14,000ft. As we leave the airfield, you will be treated to a scenic tour of the Yarra Valley and the Dandenong ranges as well as the city of Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay. Once we reach height, it will be time to prepare yourself for the jump. The door opens and as you leave the plane, you and your tandem master will accelerate through the air reaching terminal velocity - 220km/h. Freefall feels like riding a cushion of air similar to riding a big wave. In freefall, your senses will be able to take in stunning views as far as the eye can see. Then finally it's time to pull your parachute open. From the loud rushing of air that you hear all around you, the parachute ride is very different as you sail around the sky, gliding. The landing is easy, just lift your legs. The parachute will glide and you will eventually put your feet down to land. Afterwards, you will be treated to a wine tasting experience in a Yarra Valley Winery. Sky diving is suitable for people of almost any age as demonstrated by AFL legend Ron Barassi in the sky diving photo.
