What kind of jump
We offer three types of skydive: Tandem, Static Line and Accelerated Free Fall
Tandem skydiving is the quickest and easiest way to experience the thrill of freefall. Strapped to a qualified instructor, you’ll jump from over 10,000 feet and reach speeds of up to 140mph before the instructor opens your parachute at around 5,000 feet to bring you safely back down to the ground. You may even get to control the canopy yourself. This is the ideal method for a one off jump, a gift or a charity jump.
Static Line is for the truly daring, or for those who might want to learn to skydive solo. After six hours of ground training you will jump on your own from 3,500 feet, with a line attached to the aircraft which will open the parachute for you. You’ll then steer your canopy safely down to the ground.
Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is for those who wish to gain their skydiving qualification in the shortest possible time. All of your jumps will be from at least 12,000 feet with qualified AFF instuctors. You can complete your AFF course in as few as 8 jumps!

Can I have a video of my jump
Yes! If you choose to do a tandem jump, you can have it videoed. This will be at an extra cost, usually between £80 and £100 depending on where you jump. You don't have to decide now if you want one, you can decide on the day of the jump. However, if you book with us, you will be asked if you think you will want one. You are not committing yourself and if you are not sure, just tick maybe.
If you do a static line jump we cannot guarantee that your instructor will video it, but it may be possible. You should check with your instructor on the day of your jump.
If you do AFF, your instructor will almost certainly video your jump in order to provide instructional advice and make it available to you.
What dates can I skydive
Parachute centres are generally open at the weekend throughout the year (Christmas and New Year excepted). Some are also open during the week but there may be restrictions on the type of jump you can do.
When you start the booking process you will be notified which dates are available depending on the type or jump you are doing and where you are jumping.
