About Skydiving

Skydiving is a great way to experience the thrill of a 200km/h freefall and create a memory which will last a lifetime. A skydive is the ULTIMATE adrenaline rush and will keep you grinning from ear to ear for weeks to come. Why not do it with Victoria’s longest running Club, Commando Skydivers?
Upon arrival at the drop zone you will meet out office staff, complete your paper work and become an official skydiving student. Our professional Australian Parachute Federation instructors will then introduce you to skydiving.
If it’s tandem you are doing, there will be a ten minute brief and then it’s straight onto the plane for a scenic flight to altitude over the Latrobe Valley giving you an entirely new perspective of the Gippsland region.
On the way up you will be secured to your tandem master, the door will open and the wind will come rushing in. Go time. Freefall – words can’t describe it! You’ll be hurtling towards the planet at over 200km/h for the longest 30 – 60 seconds of your life!

The parachute equipment used is a highly specialized system designed for use by two people. Your tandem master will deploy the main parachute and if you want to he can give you a chance to fly the parachute as you gracefully steer your way down to a smooth landing.
If it’s Accelerated Freefall (AFF or Solo Skydive (IAD) you are learning, we will get the group together after the paperwork and begin a journey of learning to do the most awesome activity on the planet.
