Tandem skydiving refers to a type of skydiving where a student skydiver is connected via a harness to a tandem instructor. The instructor guides the student through the whole jump from exit through freefall, piloting the canopy, and landing. The student needs only minimal instruction before making a tandem jump. Tandem skydiving is a very popular training method for first time skydivers. It exposes first-time jumpers with minimal training and experience to skydiving. The training before the jump may consist basic training of how to exit the aircraft, how to do maneuvers in freefall, and how to deploy the main canopy themselves. However, the tandem skydiving instructor remains primarily responsible for safe and timely parachute deployment. Modern parachute equipment is very reliable and instances of malfunctions are rare. However, in the unlikely event of a fault with the main parachute, the system is fitted with a back-up reserve parachute to guarantee maximum safety. For first time jumpers it is always recommend having a small bite to eat shortly before your jump to maintain your blood sugar level at reasonable level.
