A tandem skydive is the ideal first jump - you will experience the thrill of freefall and enjoy a high performance canopy ride whilst attached to a fully qualified instructor. On arrival you will be introduced to your tandem instructor who will take you through all the training required for you to do your skydive. This includes a talk about 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. The training takes about 30 minutes and your instructor will be pleased to answer any questions that you may have.
For your jump we will provide you with a jumpsuit, gloves, goggles and headgear. Next you will be fitted into the dual harness.
You will be jumping from up to 12,000 feet. It takes around 15 minutes for the aircraft to reach altitude so you will have time to relax and enjoy the spectacular views.
Once at altitude, you are ready to go! You will be freefalling at 120mph for about 45 seconds. Your instructor will deploy the parachute by 5,000 feet. The parachute has dual controls so you can aid the instructor by spiralling the parachute around the sky.
Your instructor will take control of the parachute for the landing. All in all it is an experience guaranteed to take your breath away!
To commemorate your skydive you will be presented with a certificate at the end of the jump.
The cost for the tandem skydive, includes the instructor payment and third party insurance. A deposit of £40 is required at the time of booking.
You do not need to be an Olympic athlete to become a skydiver but there are limitations as regards to your weight and mobility. The weight limits for tandem skydives are 15 stone for men and 13 stone for ladies (both fully clothed). If you are over the age of 60, or rely upon walking aids for your mobility then we will require you to attend the centre for a pre-assessment before accepting a booking.
There are TWO DIFFERENT TANDEM MEDICAL FORMS.
EVERYONE has to fill out ONE of these medical forms. You may require a doctor to sign & stamp your form.

Parachuting does have an element of risk which you accept by signing the terms and conditions in the information pack and the Student training record sheet on the day of the jump. All staff ensure training is to the highest possible standard, with safety being the number one priority. If any individual is considered not capable of undertaking the planned parachute descent, before or after training, the individual will not be allowed to complete the jump. We reserve the right to decline anyone we consider unsuitable to jump on the day, even if they are within the weight restrictions.
