It’s easy to speak to each other and in fact it’s very peaceful and quiet in the air… Nothing like skydiving!
Every day the air is a little different to the next . It’s Peters wealth of knowledge and his imagination that can gain the most out of what the flying conditions have on offer. Whether the flight is slow and gentle or fast and extreme with some fun tricks, to a full lesson. Peter can tailor the flight to suit you! Most flights are in fact a mixture of all of the above! Its up to you!
Landing is so easy! We land on Tallow Beach below the Cape. Just like a seagull! There is no need to run! Landing can be a lot of fun if you want us to make it fast with a full stop.
Landing at Lennox is back on the top and therefore making the turn around between flights quicker and easier than Byron.
T-shirt and shorts are usually all you will need to wear unless it’s winter.
The quality is excellent and its a great way to remember and to share your experience with your family and friends.
