We are glad to acquaint you with our new HALO adventures. HALO means 'High Altitude Low Opening', a type of skydiving, better known as MFF (Military Free Fall). You ask yourself, what does this have to do with space adventures? Well, the commercialization of the HALO is just the first step up to the 'Space Jump'. Of course, we also work with international partners at this level, but it will take some years on top from now, until a man can fly to an altitude of 100km, and then just jump out and falling towards Earth! As long as it is to wait, and we take you to altitudes of 30,000 ft, where the sky begins already to be black and the curvature of Earth is to see! If you are hooked only once on your tandem master, the door is open and you stare into the abyss, there's no turning back! A 2-minute free fall will follow, and this will lead you to your limits! Most definitely. We have designed with his American partners exclusively for the European market, individual programs, which are themselves also could be used as a new enrichment as incentives, team training and coachings!
