Flying towards the earth from an altitude of 10,000 feet may not be considered the norm, but it's sure to be an incredible buzz! When friends and loved ones question your sanity, you can reassure them you're in safe hands as you'll be strapped (literally) to a full qualified instructor throughout the jump. The session begins with around an hour of instruction on skydiving and landing methods before you board the plane. Once secured to your instructor and after a few deep breaths, you'll jump from the plane, experiencing a jaw-dropping freefall for 30 seconds. The instructor will then open the parachute and you'll both slowly descend to firm ground whilst admiring the scenery and coming to terms with the adrenaline rush.
Weekends and some weekdays, they also operate on bank holidays. The venue is closed from mid December to the first week of March annually. We recommend booking several weeks in advance, even earlier for summer weekend dates.
The jump itself is subject to weather conditions and cancellations for this reason are made with your safety in mind. Please call the centre around 5.30pm the day before your booking to check the weather.
