Activity description :

The Graves airfield in Aveyron is 2km from Villefranche de Rouergue. Less than an hour from Rodez and 1h40 from Toulouse, Villefranche de Rouergue is an ideal site for tandem skydiving.

Villefranche-de-Rouerge: the perfect place for skydiving

Located in Aveyron, in one of France's most historically rich communes. Take off from Villefranche-de-Rouergue aerodrome, also known as Aérodrome de Graves, and enjoy the scenery of Quercy Rouergue. You'll also have a breathtaking view of the city.

The skydiving experience

  • As soon as you arrive, you'll be briefed and kitted out by the team. You'll be provided with your own equipment (jump suit, goggles) and then hooked up securely to the instructor with a two-seater parachute before boarding.
  • After a 20-minute climb, you'll arrive at an altitude of between 3,000 and 4,000 meters. It's time for the big jump! The airplane doors open, and you and your instructor make a 40-second free-fall jump at 200 km/hr. You're in for a real thrill!
  • At 1500 meters from the ground, the parachute is triggered and you'll fly for another 8 minutes until you reach the landing area. During the descent, you'll have the chance to learn how to pilot the canopy and, above all, enjoy the surrounding scenery under the guidance of your instructor.

The center offers 3 photo/video options for you to take on the day of the jump to immortalize the moment: the raw video without editing: 70€, the personalized video: 90€ or the VIP option (video, photos, editing and USB key): 130€.

The center: Steeve, your professional instructor in charge of the center, and his team will guide you through the activity and make sure you have an unforgettable half-day. This skydiving center is the perfect place to start your first tandem skydive. You'll be accompanied by professionals with thousands of flights under their belts.

During your skydive near Toulouse, you'll be accompanied by a professional parachutist holding a qualification issued by the Direction Générale de l'Aviation Civile. Parachute jumping is the ideal activity to offer as part of a bachelor or bachelorette party in south-west France.
