A tandem skydive is the ideal first jump. You will experience the thrill of freefall & enjoy a high performance canopy ride whilst attached to a fully qualified instructor. On arrival after some paperwork you will be taken 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 & finally the position you need to adopt for landing. The training takes about 40 minutes & the 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 by our instructors.
You will be jumping from up to 12,000 feet. It takes around 18 minutes for the aircraft to reach altitude so you will have time to relax & 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!
We may have the opportunity to jump from 15000 feet which is the highest jump altitude allowed in the UK with 60 seconds in freefall! You cannot book this height but if available on the day you jump you may upgrade by adding on £40 to the 12000 feet jump price.
To commemorate your skydive you will be presented with a certificate at the end of the jump.
