Tandem Skydiving near Durham
For the ultimate aerial thrill, look no further than tandem skydiving. Not for the faint hearted, this experience offers an unrivalled adrenaline rush, coupled with sensational bird's-eye views of the County Durham countryside. Kick off with a full briefing and training session before getting kitted out ready for action. After a few safety checks, get strapped to your qualified skydiving instructor and head to the clouds in an aircraft. Once at 10,000 feet, it's time to jump - sit on the edge of the plane's exit and perform a tandem skydiving jump, enjoying up to 45 seconds of exhilarating freefall. Next, the instructor deploys the parachute and gently guides you both back to ground level - a prime opportunity to take in views.
