The tandem jump is the easiest way to get acquainted with skydiving. You hardly have to do anything for it. Only a dose of courage and motivation are enough. During an introductory instruction, one of the instructors will explain what to expect. Then you board the plane and you are linked to the instructor. At a height of at least three kilometers the door slides open and together with the jumpmaster you fall down at a speed of about 200 kilometers per hour. During this absolutely impressive experience, you can enjoy a magnificent panorama. The whole island is literally below you. After half a minute, an extra large parachute opens above your head. With this you float gently, hanging from the jumpmaster, back to Texel soil. You make a perfect landing right in front of family, friends and spectators; like a feather you reach the ground. Many well-known Dutch people have made such a jump at Paracentrum Texel and countless lesser-known visitors have also enjoyed parachuting in this way. No medical certificate is required for the tandem jump. You can have a photo/video report made of your jump (nice for later!). From November to April, the Paracentrum is only open on Saturdays and upon request.
