What do I have to do when Skydiving?
Your skydive Cairns instructor is highly experienced. Most skydive Cairns instructors have between 5 and 10 years of experience solo skydiving & tandem skydiving. Some instructors have completed up to 8000 skydives! That’s allot of air time!
A professional instructor completes up to 5 jumps in a day. Your Cairns skydive instructor will explain and train you first thing in the morning. This takes about 20minutes, they will teach the best body fly position for a nice fun, safe skydive. Did you Know the best body fly position is the shape of a banana? That’s right Arch your back and keep your chin up this will give you a great body fly position. Using your belly as the point of the triangle, this keeps the air flow nice and smooth.

Once the parachute is open, your instructor usually opens this at 5000ft. The canopy will open above you and you can enjoy the magnificent views. This is why Cairns is so famous for Skydiving, the amazing natural views. After a 5 minute ride under the canopy, you come into land.
