The airplane flight to altitude is approx. 15-20 minutes, longer than the approx. 5-10 minutes it takes in the helicopter. We can only offer handcam video/photos options from the helicopter where we can offer both handcam and camera flyer (video/photos) from the airplane, however camera flyer is subject to availability. We can take up to 6 tandems from the airplane where we can only take 2 tandems from a helicopter.
The views from both locations are both beautiful. You are closer to the mountains when you are jumping from the helicopter but you see less of the mountain range. When you jump from the airplane you see more of the Swiss Alps mountain range, the lakes and on very clear days you can see the Matterhorn.
You are more than welcome to take your GoPro or camera to the drop zone and take photos and videos while you are on the ground. For safety reasons you are not allowed to take cameras into the plane. Even licensed skydivers need 200 jumps before they can take a camera skydiving.
From Interlaken - Drop Zone - Interlaken you can expect it to take approx. 3.5 hours
Wear comfortable clothing, shoes and dress for the weather. We will give you a lightweight jumpsuit to wear over your clothes. You do not need to bring your passport but please bring your ticket or agent voucher and money (cash or credit card), in case you want to buy a drink/snack and/or photo and video package. In winter we suggest you bring gloves.
We can take up to 4 tandems when jumping from an airplane or 2 tandems from a helicopter
You can expect to get your video/photos within 3 days of your jump. If you have still not received them after 3 days please contact us by email. firstname.lastname@example.org
We jump from 4000m (13 000ft) out of the helicopter or airplane. Dependent on weather conditions and air traffic we can jump from 4600m (15 000ft) out of the airplane for additional CHF 35.00 - this option can only be determined by the pilot on the day.
The edited video of your skydive is approx. 5 minutes long.
We guarantee a minimum of 60 photos but you normally get up to 100 photos.
Rain, snow, clouds, fog and wind can affect your chances of jumping. If we need to cancel due to the weather you can reschedule for another time and date or you will get a full refund. The weather can change so quickly here in the mountains and we cannot confidently rely on the weather forecast. We will only decide shortly before the time of pick up if we need to cancel or not. If we decide to cancel we will first contact you by email, approx. 30 minutes prior to the trip time. If we cannot contact you by email we will try to contact you by telephone or through your place of accommodation.
Handcam is when the tandemmaster wears a camera on their wrist to capture your skydive and the camera flyer is when a 2nd person follows you out of the plane to capture your skydive. Handcam video/photos will also capture you under the canopy and the camera flyer will capture some of your flight under the canopy and landing from the ground.

Our tandemmasters will do our best to reassure you and encourage you to jump however our tandemmasters will never force you. If your final decision is not to jump full charges will apply for your skydive including any video/photo packages purchased.
We recommend booking your skydive for the earliest time slot available on the earliest day you can. In the event your jump is cancelled due to weather at least you have the option to reschedule to a later time slot or day. The weather in the mountains can change quickly but we find the weather in the mornings are more favourable.
Yes, we give you goggles to wear that can also fit over any normal size glasses.
