The training requirements for Tandem Skydiving is shorter than for our solo jump courses, you'll begin with a 20 minute pre-jump briefing by your highly experienced British Parachute Association Instructor. After this, you will be provided with a skydiver's jumpsuit to go over your clothes (you should wear comfortable clothing, such as a track suit, and a pair of trainers). After fitting the tandem parachute harness, appropriate headgear and goggles it will take just around 14 minutes in the aircraft to reach altitude. After exiting the aircraft you will freefall until the instructor opens the main parachute at about 5000 feet. You will freefall at a speed of around 120 miles per hour! The descent under the large square parachute will take several minutes, during which time you will help to steer it down to the landing area. You can even have a freefall camera flyer join you on your Tandem Skydive and take a memorable freefall video to help you remember your skydive and to show your friends.

You will need to raise at least £350 in sponsorship. The maximum allowable weight is 13 stone for females and 15 stone for males, body mass index will also be taken into account. The minimum age for parachuting is 16, applicants under 18 must have written parental / guardian consent. Applicants aged 40 and over should request a British Parachute Associate Medical Certificate for completion by their doctor before their course.
