Me too!!!! There are like three places in the Netherlands where you can do that, and there's no training required if you're okay with a tandem jump. But that's all I know.

Hi guys,

I have been planning to do this for quite some time! I checked this out when I was still living in Stockholm and there you dont need any training if you tandem jump with a trained person. This is the most common way of doing it and the larger organisations arange these kind of jumps. I dont think it should be any different in Amsterdam.

Let me know if you guys are serious about going. Im in!

I think this is a great idea, Im definately interested.
A friend of mine did it, and its awesome and you dont need any training for that you jump in tandem with someone else and its a bit pricy, I think it costs around 100 till 150eur per person..

I've done this in Kent, England in 1990 but without an instructor. We had to do 8hrs course so we could jump solo and the course has landing simulations and explanation of the various styles of flight, navigation, trouble shooting and the general basics.
Tandem is nice if you want the rush but solo is much more empowering, frightening but rewarding.
