Tandem Skydive in Segamat, Johor
Welcome to WHOA! To enquire this adventure, there is an enquiry button at the end of the page. If you have read this page before, you may enquire here without scrolling down.
At this point, we are no longer arranging jumps in Segamat. Please refer to our Thailand Tandem Jumps for a most excellent leap!
Like the idea of free falling down to earth, dropping at speeds exceeding 100km per hour? You want to jump and enjoy the moment but not worry about the technicalities? Join us for a Tandem jump! It is a great introduction to skydiving! A one day activity with less than 30 minutes of training on the ground!
You arrive at the dropzone by 0800hours. Sign an indemnity form, watch a tandem skydiving video approved by the United States Parachuting Association(USPA) before receiving practical training. Then you wait your turn. When your jump comes up, you get suited up, reminded on your training then ushered into the plane. Before the jump, you will be securely harnessed to one of our very experienced Tandem Masters.
You will exit the aircraft, bewildered by the magnificent free-fall speed with the confidence of the Tandem Master who will open the parachute at 5,000ft. This will possibly be the most amazing, life-changing few minutes ride back to the drop zone! The Tandem Master is in complete control all the way! hint: you can request for skydive tricks before the jump
Segamat is the only dropzone available to civilians unlike in the 1990s and before, where Sungai Besi, Subang, Ipoh and Malacca Airfields were available. Skydive in Malaysia is erratic due to difficulty in getting Department of Civil Aviation approval and the fluctuating availability of recreational jumpers, students, instructors, dropzone, equipment and plane.
Skydive activities in Malaysia are customised and not run daily. Early planning is essential. If you have minimum 8pax, it might be easier for us to create a jump date. There several factors that must be available before a jump event is confirmed; availability of plane, instructor/equipment, fuel, dropzone, hanger and sufficient skydivers/students to spread out the costs.

RM1450 per pax (single booking)
