Are you planning on having free time for your attendees? Can they make a choice of activities? How about adding the tandem skydive as a choice! Bob is the only speaker in America that can not only daze your audience with his keynote program, but can also assist your audience with confronting fear and actually make a skydive with them.
The Tandem program is a fairly new method of training. We have been using this program since 1989 to introduce seminar graduates to "fear confrontation" and to apply the techniques learned in the keynote program. This method is one where you experience free fall and canopy control with an experienced Tandem pilot giving you dual instruction and hands on canopy control.
The instructor wears a harness with two oversized square canopies, a main and reserve, you wear a harness with 4 heavy duty clips which attach to the instructors front. You are attached before you exit the aircraft and until you land back on the ground. Once you exit the aircraft you will fly in a horizontal body position with the instructor on top and you on the bottom. You don't even feel him there. Together you experience free fall.
You have a rip cord placed on your harness by your right breast and an altimeter on your chest strap. Once the rip cord is pulled the canopy takes about 3 to 5 seconds to fully inflate and you will be in an upright position with the instructor talking to you and explaining canopy control with dual steering lines so you will be helping steer the canopy to the landing area. The canopy ride is about 5 to 6 minutes and you land the canopy together touching with your feet almost simultaneously.
Please let us know if you are interested in having this experience as an optional activity. You can view the tandem skydive at the end of the Keynote demo video.
