Skydive Academy


We are based at Shotton Airfield, Shotton Colliery, DH6 2NH. The airfield is 2 miles west of Peterlee and 10 miles east of Durham city.


From the A19 take the Peterlee Exit, and from the roundabout (underneath the A19) take the Shotton Colliery turn off. Follow the road through the large industrial estate and at the next two roundabouts follow the signs to Shotton Colliery. The Airfield is sign posted to the right (sign on left hand side of road pointing to the right), through the Shotton Colliery Industrial Estate. The road bears left through the Shotton Colliery Industrial Estate. You may think you are approaching a dead end but keep going and then bear right at the single garage. You should then be able to see our turquoise hangar at the top of the track.
