Tandem skydive

Tandem skydiving allows you to experience the thrill of freefall, followed by the quiet serenity of a surreal canopy descent, without any significant training.

•    The easiest and most popular of all skydives
•    The BPA (British Parachute Association) qualified tandem instructor does all of the hard work for you, so you can enjoy the moment
•    Jump from over 10,000 feet at up to 120 mph
•    FREE if you raise £395

Solo static line jump

A static line parachute jump is the very first step to becoming a certified skydiver. The jump involves 1 day of training at the airfield before you complete a solo jump from around 3,000 feet. Although the jump out of the aircraft is performed solo, there will be no freefall as your parachute will be pulled automatically once you leave the aircraft.

•    Jump solo under professional supervision
•    British Parachute Association certificate
•    Jump from over 3,000 feet
•    FREE if you raise £360

Solo accelerated freefall

The Accelerated Freefall Level 1 course is the quickest way to become a solo skydiver! It requires 1 day of training before you get taken up to a height of 10,000 feet to complete a solo skydive. Two fully qualified instructors will be with you every step of the way, however, you will be responsible for pulling your own parachute. After completing this jump, you will be cleared to complete the full course and will be well on your way to becoming a fully qualified skydiver.

•    Solo skydive after 1 days training
•    Quickest way to become a qualified skydiver
•    Jump from 10,000 feet at up to 120 mph
•    FREE if you raise £535
