- Attention adrenalin junkies! The Millennium Tandem Team based at the Dunaújváros/Kisapostag airfield provide amateurs with the opportunity of skydiving above Budapest. They do tandem jumps from April through to October.
What to expect: A one-minute free fall experience from a helicopter at 4000 meters high, securely strapped to a professional. All you have to do is take the leap, but if you feel up to it you can pull the rip-cord to open the parachute or do the navigating on descent. If you don't feel comfortable or lose control, the pilot will take over and land you both safely.
Preceding the tandem skydiving is a 10 to 15 minute orientation and training session, and having done that practically anyone can take part. For safety reasons however, an upper weight limit has been set at 100kg, as well as an age limit between 12 and 60 years.
