Jumping out of a plane isn't straight forward, it's straight down!...
Tandem parachute jumping is the quickest easiest way to experience free fall. Once you've booked in, all you need to do is turn up to the parachute centre, kit up and you'll be experiencing free fall as soon as possible. After your briefing you'll be introduced to your fully qualified BPA instructor so you can get to know each other. Next you'll go on a lovely scenic ride up to jump altitude where you will experience free fall, before being gently piloted back to terra-firma under canopy. Have a look at one of our tandem videos to see how much our customers enjoy it:
Why choose to do a tandem jump?
Tandem Skydives cost £250! A tandem skydive is the easiest quickest way to experience free fall. Free fall being the bit most people love. Imagine the sensation, your brain is telling you that you're falling, you can feel you're falling, but to you, it feels more like you're flying...
Ask someone to describe what a skydive feels like and usually they will struggle to explain it, other than tell you that it was a once in a lifetime experience. Tandem skydiving is also open to pretty much anyone, and furthermore you don't have to do any of the work as your instructor does it all for you, that means not only do you get a worry free thrill ride, but you get to enjoy the scenic ride of the canopy back down to earth.
