Parachuting Tandem Jumps

 Tandem Jumping with a parachute consists on jumping off an airplane at an altitude of 4000 meters (13120 feet), with an instructor attached to you. It is a totally safe activity, done by professional skydivers with over 1000 jumps. The maximum speed achieved is 200 kilometers per hour (125 miles per hour). After 45 amazing seconds of freefall, the instructor opens the parachute and then, there isn`t much to do but to enjoy the view and glide for 05 minutes before landing safely. No previous experience is required.

Parachuting Tandem Jumps take place in Barra da Tijuca area, at the Jacarepaguá Airport, located on the west side of the city just 30 minutes from Copacabana. Before jumping, a twin engine airplane takes you for a 15 minutes panoramic flight, over the beaches and mountains of Rio.
