If you are a big adrenaline seeker and a real daredevil, then this is the right activity for you! You will be jumping off a plane at 3.500 metres and flying free for 50 seconds, attached to an experienced instructor of Hellenic Skydivers!
This is a safe and fun experience for everyone who wants to boost his adrenaline! You do not need to be an experienced skydiver or very fit. You will be jumping off a plane attached to an experienced instructor, who will take care of everything. Of course you will have two parachutes (main canopy and reserve canopy), so you do not need to worry about anything.
Hellenic Skydivers have more than 20 years of experience and all the instructors are certified by USPA, meaning that you will have top quality equipment and all the means to get an idea of what skydiving is. The only thing you will have to do is sit back and relax while falling down from 3.500 metres!
Where will you be flying?
You will be flying in Polykastro, about 40 minutes away from Thessaloniki city centre. The academy's base is in the Nea Kavala Airport in Polykastro. You will be flying over the Polykastro village having views to the valley, the forests around and the rivers.
Sometimes the base changes to Lagada, near Thessaloniki.
The centre has a licence (NOTAM) to fly every weekend up to 12.500 ft (3.800 m.). There is a specific zone for landing near the airport without obstacles. The centre operates from 9 am to 8 pm.
The centre uses a CESSNA 172 for the jumps.
In the centre of Skydive Greece you will find the best equipment specially designed for tandem jumps. Thus you will have two large parachutes - the main canopy and a reserve that opens automatically in the rare case the main doesn't open. You will be attached to your instructor with a harness that no matter what happens cannot be detached. Responsible for the equipment is Maria, a FAA Master Rigger.
Please note: this activity is only available one weekend per month as the permanent base of the flying company is in Athens. Contact us to let you know of the exact available dates.
