Questions and answers about the activity
Tandem skydiving is, without a doubt, the best opportunity to enjoy this thrilling air sport without extensive training. After a safety briefing where we explain all you need to know, you will jump harnessed to a fully qualified instructor that will make sure you have the best time of your life. The aeroplane will take you to an altitude of 15,000ft. and upon jumping you will enjoy one whole minute of free fall, reaching the incredible speed of 120mph.
At around 5,000 ft, the instructor will deploy the parachute so you can enjoy a 5-minute controlled descent while taking delight in the amazing views of the Lincolnshire Wolds. Upon landing, we will reward you with a Tandem Skydive certificate to prove your courage.
Almost anyone can try skydiving, but there are some important restrictions you must be aware of. For instance, the maximum weight permitted is 16 stones; the minimum age to do skydiving is 16, but you need parental consent if you are 16 or 17 years old; those who are 40+ must get a BPA Fitness form 115 that must be stamped and signed by their doctor. In addition, if you have medical conditions or are taking regular medication, you should contact us before booking.
How does this work? You will jump from up to 12,000ft attached to your instructor, who will be in total control of the freefall, opening the parachute and landing. Your safety is our main priority. We are affiliated with the British Parachute Association (BPA) and all our instructors are fully qualified and trained. They have done more than 35,000 jumps among them! What’s more, they are especially trained to look after first-time tandem skydivers.
The whole adventure from boarding the aircraft to landing lasts about 30 minutes. You will experience around 40 seconds of freefall and then you will enjoy approximately 5 minutes under the canopy, while you enjoy the views of the breathtaking landscape below you.
Tandem skydiving is the perfect way to make a special date unforgettable: raising money for a charity, celebrating a wedding (yes, that happens!), a birthday, a stag or hen party (of course), or just because you want to do something unique. Just remember skydiving can be an all-day activity and it depends on the weather conditions.
Our experts will guide you to jump excitedly, It coul be better for both of us if you book 4 weeks before. The jump could be filmed by us to remember it for the rest of your life. You just have to enjoy the jumping experiencie. You didn´t end up here by accident. This could bel the best jumping what you do in your life.
This course consists of 8 levels that take place in different days and they are one-to-one lessons. If you just want to try the first level, you will not be completely on your own because we want to make sure you have learnt everything you need to know before setting you free like a bird! Level one is just the first step.
After completing the 8 levels, you will have two instructors that will exit the aircraft with you. They will fly by your side, giving you directions by using hand signals to assist you if necessary during the nearly one minute thrilling freefall. They will leave your side after you open your parachute and fly down to the landing area.
We recommend you to book at least 2 or 3 months in advance, but before doing so you must know that the AFF can be done by people up to 55 years old. Those who are 40 or over need to have their doctor’s approval. Contact us for more information and we will be pleased to answer all your requests.
On your first visit you will be briefed by one of our professional instructors, who will play a short video and explain all the safety procedures you must follow in the tunnel. Then you will be given all the necessary equipment: goggles, helmet, flight suit, ear plugs and training shoes.
Before doing it, you will wait at the ante-chamber, where you will be able to watch the people in the previous group. When it is your turn, you will receive a signal to lean forward in the airflow. The instructor will hold your flight suit, just to make sure you are fine. The aim of a lesson is to be able to fly without the instructor holding on to you and the time it takes to achieve this depends on the person’s ability. Flights are booked per person, but we also offer family flights.
You can choose from three different locations to try indoor skydive with us: Milton Keynes, Manchester and Basingstoke. Please arrive one hour before your flight time so you can complete your registration documents and attend to the briefing.

Two instructors will be by your side, but you won’t be attached to any of them. The jump will happen on the second day, when you will open and land your own parachute.
If you love the experience and think of going further, the full 8 level AFF course will give you a license as a qualified parachutist and this would allow you to jump at many other skydiving centres around the world. However you can book the AFF Level 1 on its own.
The ground training is mentally and physically tiring, that’s why we recommend to start fresh in the morning. If you don’t live near the area, we suggest that you stay on site or nearby, rather than driving a long distance. You shouldn’t be tired before living this thrilling adventure. We have private rooms to spend the night as well as a free campsite and you are more than welcome to stay with us.
If after your first jump, you decide you want to continue the adventure and go even further, we offer a longer course that consists on a six-jump package. As you make progress, you will jump from higher altitudes and will be able to do freefall skydiving at the end of the lessons.
All your jumps will be on your own, although you will always be supervised by a British Parachute Association (BPA) qualified instructor who will follow you on exit and on the descent out of the aircraft.
Static Line Parachuting is a great activity for groups. Our courses usually have up to 12 people and are ideal for friends, charity events and team building exercises.
