Program of a Tandem initiation parachute jump.

(allow 2 to 3 hours of presence on site)


  • Welcome to CERPS Gap Tallard

Management of formalities and administrative documents

  • Briefing of 15/20 minutes and safety instructions

Your instructor will explain to you all the course of the jump during the briefing, as well as what to do on the ground, in the plane, in freefall, under canopy and for landing.
It also presents the safety instructions.

  • Equipment and boarding on the plane

About 20 to 30 minutes before the jump, your instructor equips you with the tandem parachute harness (provided) and goggles (provided). After validating the equipment checks, you head together to the boarding area.
Once the plane is parked for boarding, your instructor guides you and installs you in the plane.

  • Ascent by plane to 3500m/4000m with a view of Gap and the Alps

The ascent by plane takes about ten minutes, with a magnificent view of the Alps and the Gap valley. Once the jump altitude is reached, the plane slows down and stabilizes horizontally to enable the jump of the skydivers. The starting order is decided by the technical director of the center.
Most of the time the tandems leave the plane in last position

  • Free fall of 45 to 55 seconds at more than 200 km/h

The instructor installs you for the departure and makes you leave the plane to begin the fall. A few seconds after the exit, you are in the ideal fall position (on your stomach) and the instructor activates a stabilizer. Now you can enjoy your freefall at over 200 km/h. Do not close your eyes; equipped with goggles, you can enjoy the entire jump without discomfort.

  • Flight under canopy of 5 to 6 min with the possibility of taking the controls and piloting the parachute.

After the parachute opens at approximately 1,500 m, your instructor drives you to the landing zone. You then benefit from a plunging view of the 3 massifs overlooking the Gap valley. After a few minutes of flight, your instructor prepares the landing by engaging the landing circuit.

  • Soft landing

The landing takes place smoothly. A few meters from the ground, your instructor asks you to raise your legs so that he can carry out the landing maneuver and touch the ground first. And it's back to terra firma. After landing, your instructor unfastens the harness and takes you back to the hangar.

Do not hesitate any longer, come and live an extreme experience in complete safety!
