Skydive The Bend - Skydive + Passenger Hotlaps in a Mustang

3. Skydive The Bend - Skydive + Passenger Hotlaps in a Mustang

THE EXPERIENCE After meeting your professional instructor and gearing up into a harness, you'll board our custom Cessna 206 aircraft. Ascending over the Murray River and over the track, you'll climb to your exit altitude. As the door slides open, fresh air rushes around the aircraft, suddenly everything feels very real! You move to the edge, hanging outside the aircraft, you smile for the camera before feeling yourself exit the plane and start to freefall. You accelerate to 220kph, feeling the adrenaline pump through your veins and the wind rush past your face. As the parachute opens, everything slows and after your instructor congratulates you and welcomes you to the sky, you take in the stunning views including the birds eye view of the Bend Motorsport Park. You take control of your parachute, flying around for about 5 minutes before coming in to land. After touching down on terra firma, you then swap your skydiving harness for a race car helmet and climb into a Mustang or V8 to experience 3 passenger hot laps around the World Class Bend race track.
