You can choose to do a tandem jump, jump solo using a static line or even undertake the first part of a professional skydiver’s qualification: the Accelerated Freefall course.
You can jump all year round at 20 different locations across the UK. Plus, if you raise the minimum sponsorship required, you jump for free!
It was the best thing I’ve ever done; absolutely amazing. I’d do it again tomorrow!
The most popular parachute jump is a tandem skydive where you'll receive your training and do the dive on the same day. Harnessed to an instructor at all times, you'll jump from 10,000 feet and freefall down to 5,000 feet. You'll learn how to steer the canopy but the landing will be controlled by your instructor. On completion you'll be awarded a certificate confirming your membership of the 2-mile High Club!
