Activity description :

Discover the Haute-Savoie and its magnificent landscapes by combining a helicopter flight with a tandem parachute jump. Unlike the traditional jump from a plane, Fabien and his team offer you to jump from a helicopter at an altitude of 4000 meters.

The advantages of a helicopter are the faster climb to 4000m, a shorter take-off and landing and the hovering flight which allows a 0 speed departure.

Fabien and his team welcome you to their centre in Viuz-en-Sallaz in Haute-Savoie, halfway between Geneva, Annecy and Chamonix. All of them are instructors with a professional skydiving licence and will accompany you throughout your experience in complete safety.

Course of the tandem jump :

  • On arrival on the tarmac, you will have a briefing of a few minutes to explain the jump and receive the safety instructions. This short theoretical training on the ground will give you confidence for the rest of the activity.
  • You will be equipped and board the helicopter for a 10 minute flight to reach an altitude of 4000 metres. You will have the chance to admire the mountainous relief of the Haute-Savoie between Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva.
  • The doors of the helicopter open... Clinging to your instructor, it's the big jump! In free fall at 200 km/h, it will take about 40 seconds to reach the height of 1500 meters. At this height, your instructor will open the parachute.
  • You will experience 5 to 7 minutes of canopy flight which will allow you to enjoy the view.
  • Soft landing at the foot of the mountains. Once on the ground, you can debrief with your instructor and share your emotions with your family.

Several packages are available:

  • Classic Baptism: several passengers on board; you will jump alone with your tandem instructor.
  • VIP Baptism: several passengers on board; you will jump while being filmed and photographed with a camera and its pole + a videoman who will film your fall from the front including your tandem instructor.
  • VIP Luxury Baptism: you will be the only passenger on board; you will jump while being filmed and photographed with a camera and its pole + a videoman who will film your face fall including your tandem instructor.
  • Private Baptism: a private jump specially organised for your special event. You will jump while being filmed and photographed with a camera and its pole + a videoman who will film your face shot fall including your tandem instructor.

You will also have the possibility to choose on the spot, the day of your jump, an option to have a video of your jump.

Don't wait any longer and realise your dream of skydiving in Haute-Savoie or offer a jump for a special event such as a birthday or a bachelor party. Adrenalin and sensations guaranteed!
