BOOK NOW

Or skydive for a charity of your choice by raising a minimum of £400 and have the cost of your skydive included – potentially jumping for FREE!

On arrival and after booking in, you will be given a safety briefing on what to expect during the skydive, the exit from the aircraft, the position in freefall and the position for landing.
You will have the chance to ask as many questions as you like!
You will then be securely attached to your instructor in a harness using a professional parachute system.
You will be provided with a jumpsuit, goggles and gloves.
From exiting the aircraft and freefall of up to 40 seconds, you will have the chance to enjoy the exhilaration of freefall reaching speeds of up to 120mph.

If you wish you can have your experience filmed throughout, this can be arranged on the day or purchased in advance.

The canopy will be deployed at approx 5,000 ft by the instructor and you may be able to assist in steering the canopy on your slow descent.
The instructor will take full control of the landing, at which time all we ask of you is to ‘raise your legs’ as instructed in your initial briefing.
The landing is the part most people have a concern with. Listen to your instructor and remain calm. It is usual to slide in on your bottom, sat on your instructors lap! If the wind speed is favourable it may even be possible to land and stand straight up.
Be advised by your instructor at all times though.

Tandem skydiving is one of the easiest ways to enter the exciting sport of Freefall skydiving and many, many people who have taken part say they will definitely do it again and many do!

Some even continue in the sport and become experienced skydivers!
