Tandem Parachute Jump Locarno/Tenero (Ticino, CH)
Locarno-Tenero Airport is about 35 minutes from Cannobio Lakeview Camp & Resort. From there, small groups of parachutists take off in the Paracentro airplane at altitudes of up to 5000m.
Your instructor will prepare you in detail for the tandem jump and explain the behavior during take-off, in the air and during landing. Then go to one of the planes. The ascent is extremely scenic, because in good weather conditions, from the top you can see not only Lake Maggiore in all its glory, but also Lakes Como and Lugano and the impressive mountain massifs.
After about 15 minutes of flying, the side door of the aircraft opens over the Locarno-Tenero airfield while your instructor – firmly attached to you – crawls with you to the exit hatch. There you sit for a short while and enjoy a very scary view down. Way down! And then it goes down…!
After about a minute in free fall, the parachute opens and you slowly glide back to the airport for a few minutes. Once at the bottom, you will really feel your own trembling for the first time – the feeling will stay with you for the rest of the day, I promise! A unique experience in a unique environment. Of course, the course is also open to licensed jumpers.
