What is skydiving in Newcastle like?
Skydiving in Newcastle is unlike any air-bound experience you have ever embarked upon.
First timers should expect to feel heart palpitations and an upward surge of nervous energy, and that’s even before you have reached altitude on board your 20-minute scenic flight.
Once you find the courage and take the plunge from your aircraft, travelling at speeds of 200 km per hour in a tandem free fall for an insane up to 60 seconds, you will have surmounted the worst inner fears.
Contrary to the direction downwards, the only way is up as you float like a butterfly for five to seven minutes, absorbing the scenic panorama and personal achievement of attaining your high-flying dream.
Once you touch base at a speed of around 28 km per hour, the post-experience adrenaline rush will leave you breathless and energised in one and undoubtedly inspire a taste for more of before.
