Le Havre is a wonderful city and the best way to admire its beauty is from above. By skydiving near Le Havre, you can combine the panoramic view with adventure, while you boost your adrenaline levels. Skydiving takes place at Airport Le Havre Octeville sur Mer.
The spot is ideal, due to its position, offering magnificent view during gliding time. When you reach at the airport, you will attend a mandatory briefing of about a quarter of an hour, mostly on safety and general flying information. Then you will put on your flying suit and you are ready to go.
For the next 20 minutes, you are eagerly waiting for the big moment to come, while the aircraft reaches at least at 3000 m / 9843 ft high above the ground. When the desirable height is being attended, you will jump off the aircraft and the adventure begins. The feeling of free flying at almost 200 kph/124.3 mph is indescribable.
This heart racing feeling will last for about 30 to 50 seconds and then the tandem master will bring your heart to its normal beating rythm, by triggering the gigantic parachute to open. After that, it is just a pleasure of flying over the beaches of Deauville – Trouville Honfleur, Etretat Cliffs and the bay of Mont Saint Michel.
Admire the unique view of the sea under your feet. Then you will land safely by raising your legs and let the pilot assure your return on the land. Once this amazing experience comes to an end, you will only have one desire. To repeat the venture again!!!
