Tandem Skydiving

Tandem skydiving or tandem parachuting 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. This is one of three commonly used training methods for beginning skydivers (the others being static line and Accelerated Freefall).
Tandem skydiving is a very popular training method for first time skydivers. It exposes first-time jumpers to skydiving with minimal expectations from the student. The short training consists of many of the activities performed by any skydiving student, for example, how to exit the aircraft, how to do maneuvers in freefall, how to deploy the main canopy and how to steer and land the parachute.
However, the tandem instructor remains primarily responsible for the safe operation of the tandem system.
