A tandem jump is the ideal first time freefall experience, being by far the quickest, easiest and most hassle free way to make a skydive. You'll experience the ultimate thrill of free falling at 120 mph after jumping from an aircraft and then enjoy a long high performance canopy ride with an experienced BPA Tandem Instructor. Our aim is to allow you to experience the ultimate adrenaline rush while knowing that safety is our number one priority.
On arrival at the parachute centre your tandem instructor will take you through all you need know to make the jump safely. This will include the equipment to be used, aircraft orientation as well as covering what you can expect in freefall and finally the position you need to adopt for landing. This briefing and training generally takes 30 minutes and the instructor will be pleased to answer any questions you may have.
For your skydive you will be provided with a jump suit, gloves, goggles and headgear. Next you will be fitted into your harness by your instructor. Once inside the aircraft you will be attached to your instructor. There is then a 12 minute plane ride up to your planned exit altitude of 13,000 feet so there's plenty of time to enjoy the spectacular views. After exiting the aircraft you'll be travelling at speeds of 120 mph which will last for about 55 seconds and will quite literally be the ride of your life!
At about 5000 feet you'll be under a Ram Air Tandem Parachute that has dual controls so you can have a go if you wish aided by your instructor spiralling through the sky. Your instructor will take complete control of the landing after about 5 minutes, guaranteed to take your breath away! To commemorate your skydive experience you'll also be presented with a certificate of achievement.

Film Your Skydive
This is a fantastic way to remember your skydive and a great way to see how you look in freefall to show all your friends and family. You will be allocated your own freefall cameraman who will capture you preparing on the ground, going out to the aircraft, exiting at 12,000 feet, fly in front of you and film your landing. This is edited and put to music on a DVD. You will also receive a CD of your freefall photographs. This is then posted to you in about a week.
Cost for your Skydive Pictures & DVD - £110
