Tips if you are going to do Skydiving in Castellón
If you are looking for skydiving in Castellón we will help you find the best option, the skydiving schools that are in the area, the types of skydiving and we will try to explain what the activity is about, although there are no words to express it, you have to live it..
Although, how can we explain what it feels like to jump into the void from 4000 meters at 200 km/h? As it is somewhat complicated, we will focus on telling you everything you need to know before doing the activity and we will help you with this short video so you can see for yourself what it is like to jump in a parachute in Castellón:
For people who have not jumped before and therefore do not have any parachutist title they will have to perform a tandem jump, that is, jump on the instructor. As soon as you arrive at the aerodrome, you will have to equip and weigh yourself, the maximum weight including clothes, jumpsuit and harness must be 100 kg, people who exceed this figure will not be able to jump. People who measure more than 2 meters, can not do the activity either. This is due to the fact that being a jump directed by the monitor that goes from the packet, it must have enough mobility to be able to perform the maneuvers both during the flight and during the landing.
Then, there will be an explanatory briefing where they will give you the basic instructions that you should know about skydiving and how you should act at all times. And now, yes, the good starts.
You will climb the plane, and during a flight of approximately 13 minutes you will reach 4,000 meters high, the door will open and you and the paratrooper will jump together. You will enjoy approximately 1 minute of free fall and then the parachute will be deployed to descend to about 20 km/h for about 7 minutes.
And you know the best of everything? That this you will do just 50 meters from the beach, you will live a brutal adrenaline rush with the sea of Castellón in the background. When you land you still will not believe that you have been able to jump…
Castellón is currently the area of influence of the Valencian Community for skydiving, so moving from Valencia or Alicante is well worth it. The Pinar aerodrome is located in Castellón de la Plana and is the closest parachute center to the beach in Europe. You will jump over the Gurugú beach getting the best views of the Costa de Azahar.
The activity can be performed by anyone who is of legal age, who does not have any disease that prevents the jump (cardiovascular, respiratory, bone) And that complies with the height and weight restrictions discussed above. Minors must be accompanied by an adult and attach an authorization signed by their parents or guardians. You have to take into account also that if 24 hours before the jump you have practiced diving you will not be able to jump.
To complete the experience and take a memory for life, you can include a photo and video report both internal (recorded by the instructor with which you jump) and external (an expert photographer jumps to record the whole experience from outside). Here you can see all the offers from Castellón.
Also at the Pinar aerodrome, skydiving courses and coaching are also taught:
- PAC (Basic Free Fall Course): Is the first parachute course that consists of two parts: theory and 7 jumps from 4000 meters in height. In the first 3 jumps, two instructors will accompany you and the rest 4, just one. Every jump will be recorded so that the student can improve.
- Parachuting degree: This is the next step after the consolidation jumps are completed. This course allows you to jump with other parachuters in free fall mode, and it consists of 2 theory classes, 3 jumps, and a folding course.
