A FREEFALL jump of a lifetime is on offer from a new Skydive North Cyprus start-up at Geçitkale airport offering Accelerated Freefall (AFF) courses, tandem freefall parachute jumps, microlites and light aircraft tours of North Cyprus.

The AFF course is the quickest route to become a qualified skydiver, offering a freefall experience from the first tandem jump before three more with two instructors and four with a solo instructor.

Russian instructor Sergey Ignatov, who first tandem jumped over 10 years ago and hasn't stopped since, said: "It's all about the freefall and I can testify that this sport is addictive! You're away from everything, completely in the here-and-now. There is no yesterday, no tomorrow and you meet the true 'you'."

An experienced instructor in Russia, Venezuela and Qatar, he came to North Cyprus by invitation and intends to stay.

"There are not too many places in the world where you can land on a beach. North Cyprus is awesome, like a natural Dubai. We land on Long Beach in İskele and it's perfect.

"Do it once and you'll be looking up for ever after."
