What to Expect
Want to tick the ultimate extreme sporting adventure off your bucket list? This is Australia's ONLY helicopter skydive!
You'll take to the skies on a thrilling helicopter flight and feel your heart racing a million miles per hour as you look down from up to 10,000ft out the open heli door. Then, experience an unforgettable adrenaline rush as you jump with your tandem instructor out the open chopper door and freefall at wild speeds over incredible views of Surfers Paradise. This is an unbeatable adventure that is literally like nothing else you can experience in Australia. So what are you waiting for?
Before take-off, you'll be geared up and taken through a safety and instructional briefing to get you ready for your heli skydive. Buckle in and soak up the excitement of the helicopter ride that takes you over the Gold Coast sights and up to an adrenaline-pumping 10,000ft. Your tandem instructor will be strapped to you and take care of everything technical; all you need to do is work up the courage to jump and experience the adventure of a lifetime.
Then, you'll leap from the helicopter and feel the unbeatable exhilaration of freefalling for up to 30 seconds at insane speeds of over 200kph. After the full-throttle falling, your tandem instructor will deploy the parachute so you can enjoy a canopy ride flying to the ground. Take in the incredible views of the Surfers Paradise coast while you enjoy the electrifying post-heli-skydive adrenaline high.
Best of all, no experience is necessary, as all training is provided. All you need to do is wear comfortable clothing suitable for the weather and flat closed-in shoes, and get ready for the thrills! Even though you won't forget this experience any time soon, photo and video packages are available for purchase at the drop zone once you land.
