This was my first time doing skydiving. The procedure was smooth and before we (jumpers) received enough information what/when/how to do. The staff were all super kind and helpful. The experience is unforgettable especially because of the wonderful view what we saw during the free-fall and parachuting. I really recommend for extreme sport lovers!!

Incredible first tandem jump!! So good in fact that I signed up to jump again the next day. Waiting for the clouds to clear is all part of the experience and just adds to the adrenaline rush. I felt really safe with the two staff I jumped with, and loved the sense of community there. Would do this again in a heartbeat. Thanks Harvey and Dirk!

I booked a so-called "tandem jump" at Paracentrum Texel after having enjoyed a scenic flight by Tessel Air. Pretty impulsive, but this is a pretty big operation used to people (literally) jumping in and out for their first taste of skydiving. I literally had no time to reconsider the wisdom of jumping out of a plane from 3000 metres: I showed up at the check-in counter at 2:30 pm as scheduled and was back on the ground at 4pm! Apparently, it doesn't always work out like that and Paracentrum advises you to spare about 4 hours for the entire experience in case of delays due to changing weather, refuelling etc. The instructions are really brief and minimal - again, no time to think, which might not suit everyone - but the staff made a professional impression and I never got the feeling that safety was anything less than primordial. My instructor was really reassuring and confidence-inspiring, and needless to say, the skydive itself was a wonderful experience tattooed directly into my brain. Seeing the entire islands of Texel and Vlieland from above is breathtaking.

Finest instructors for Military Static Line training. They took the seats out of a Pollish Antonav Cub so we could Stand up, Hook up, and shuffle to the door, with a stand up exit.

Wow what a great 1.5 days. My course instruction was really great. I am only partly Dutch speaking/understanding and I was able to completely feel comfortable with all instruction and guidance. Everyone was friendly and professional and it made the experience even better. I highly recommend for anyone that is a bit of an adrenaline junkie. :)
