Experience an aerial thrill like no other with an adrenaline-pumping tandem skydive. Begin with a thorough briefing on skydiving and landing techniques, before climbing into the plane and ascending skywards. After being securely harnessed to a fully qualified instructor, jump from the plane for around 30 seconds of exhilarating freefall. Then the instructor opens the parachute and takes control while you admire the view and try to come to terms with the adrenaline rush of this mind-blowing tandem skydiving experience.
Venues operate at least one weekend date and some on selected weekdays. The main season is from March to October. Please note that weekends are particularly busy and should be booked several weeks in advance.
Maximum weight limits vary by venue, from 15 to 16 stone. Minimum age is 16. If you're over 39 you'll need a signed doctor's certificate. You need to be reasonably fit and you'll be asked to complete a full medical declaration before taking part.
Jumping is always subject to weather conditions and cancellations for this reason are made with your safety in mind. It is crucial that you call the venue before you leave on the morning of your jump to check on weather conditions.
Duration is dependent on factors like the weather and the number of participants on the day. As a guide, your training and jump will take around an hour, but you may be at the venue for much of the day.
Your training might be shared, your jump will be one-to-one with a fully qualified skydiver.
Spectators are welcome. A camera and binoculars will come in handy.
Dress warmly and comfortably, wear trainers and bring a sweater as it can get cold on the airfield.
Most venues operate jumps on a first-come, first-served basis on the day. You'll usually have the chance to buy a video of your jump for an additional cost on the day.
Very good staff with excellent training, safety is paramount. The jump was fantastic. Over far too quick. Still buzzing 24 hours later.
Always wanted to do a jump and got this as a 50th birthday present. Must say this is the best thing I have ever done, enjoyed every minute of the day, even before I got to Sibson Airfield just looking forward to it. The instructors at UK Parachuting were all excellent and made the experience even more thrilling. My only regret is that I didnt get the dvd but thats going to happen next time. Already planning for next year some time. If you get a chance do it - you wont regret it. From the speed and exhilaration of the free fall part, to the time the parachutre opens, the quiet and the drift back to earth. It was brilliant... p.s. did I say it was brilliant.
Many Thanks for an awesome experience & especially to my instructor Rob. The staff at Hibaldstow were brilliant & made the day perfect. Thought that I would be nervous as the skydive was from 15,000ft but was put at ease by Rob. I'm glad that I got the DVD to look back at what was a wonderful day. Would do it all over again tomorrow.
A very cool 16th birthday present!
Most thrilling minutes of my life. I only intended it to be a once off, but now can't wait to do it again. Freefall was amazing and the instructor was fantastic.
You just cannot describe the feeling of plummeting through the air at 120mph for 45seconds and then the gentle float down to earth. I can see why people get hooked. Highly recommended.
Turning up a little unsure and nervous I prepared for my skydive. I didnt know that there was no need for nervousness as you barely have time to be nervous through the brief and then the short flight to 13000 feet. The skydive itself is hard to put into words so I won't. All I'll say is that if you're even considering it, do it, nothing else will compare.
Thank you so much for a great day, and especially to Southy who was amazing as my instructor and looked after me all the way through my amazing experience. I thought I would feel really nervous but once I was in the aircraft Southy talked me through every step of the way which made me enjoy it even more and could not wait to jump. What a truly exhilarating and adrenaline fuelled day. Would do it again tomorrow
Very well organised with great enthusiasm from the moment I arrived at the centre to the pre-flight prep, the jump itself and the excitement the organisers shared after landing, as if it were their first time! Cannot recommend highly enough - would do it all again tomorrow.
The centre was operated very professional and the staff were very friendly
Skydiving has to be one of the most exhilarating experiences. I was on a high for two days afterwards. It costs a bit but I would recommend getting the DVD as that's the only way to capture the feeling.
Absolutely brilliant experience from start to finish. You are greeted by friendly staff and kept informed all the way. The trainer made us all laugh and relaxed and the instructor chatted to you before, during and after the jump. Thank you Dave for the fantastic jump and safe landing - an experience I'll never forget. Great memories. I'd also recommend the DVD so you can look back again and again as it goes by so quickly.
I received excellent service and my sky-diving experience was out of this world..I felt very comfortable and safe providing this was the first time I attempted a dive. Thrilled !!
My girlfriend sorted the day for my birthday and after a bit of and early start arrived for the briefing. The instructors were very clear and did their best to make you feel as comfortable and as safe as possible. Everything else was easy, getting clipped in and waiting until we were at the right height. Watching people go before seemed crazy and then it was my turn. Sitting on the edge of the plane was very nerve racking being helped out of it was one of the greatest feeling I have ever felt. For about 2 seconds owns afraid, but after was nothing but excitement all the way to the landing zone. I have to recommend that whoever you are it is something that you have to do at least once in your life. I will certainly being doing it again, only this time persuading my girlfriend to come along.
A wonderful, went very smoothly. Got to the airfield for 9am, went through the briefing and was in the plane by 10.30am!! Weather was perfect, staff were lovely, fantastic day!
This was my 60th birthday present from my children. It could not have been better. The weather was perfect, the staff at the BPA at Sibson airfield was so friendly, amusing and encouraging. The skydive was brilliant from start to finish, and the Instructor, Chris, so funny, he got all my family involved , before and after. I felt thoroughly safe and yet it was totally exhilarating. I can't wait to see the video. We are and will be talking about it for weeks to come. I would encourage anyone to do the skydive - you will not regret it !!!!
Had an amazing experience and so glad I plucked up courage to do it. There was a lot of waiting and felt bad for my family who waited with me. Not a lot at the place to do so worth taking a picknic and perhaps some games. Service from the Tandem Dive school was great and made to feel relaxed.
It was an amazing experience. I highly recomend it.
A stunning day, 13,500ft up in the air with the door open and me hanging out of it. Just for a second or two though. Grab my harness, fold my legs back, push hips forward, look at the camera man then... whoosh!! The next thing I could see was the horizon upside down, then the white plane, in the stunning blue background disappearing very rapidly into the distance! The following 40 seconds was utter joy. I could not stop grinning and whooping. Smiling at the cameraman, then going into a flat spin. Wow. Then a beautiful, scenic float down to earth, with a few spins thrown in for fun. I even took control of the parachute for a while. The staff and instructors at the jump centre could not have been more helpful and reassuring. What an experience. I am definitely going to talk some friends into having a go and will happily book up for myself to do another jump. I am hooked!!
Tnadem skydiving was the best thing I have done so far, im so happy I have completed it. Full of adrenaline and leaves you with the best feeling after. I would reccommend it to anyone who thinks they're brave enough to jump 13,000 feet
