For a once-in-a-lifetime experience, a tandem skydive is unlikely to be forgotten! Many do sponsored tandem jumps for charity or simply just for the thrill of falling at speeds in the order of 120-180 mph.
AFF is an accelerated learning, one to one skydiving course. Initially jumping with two instructors for 3 levels, reducing to one instructor for 4 levels.
A static line parachute jump can be done just as a one off experience or as part of a course to progress on to freefall and skydiving.
Skydiving courses available for beginners and a continuation facility for those wishing to make further jumps. Central for the North East of England, mid-way between Tyneside & Teesside, only a short drive from Newcastle, Sunderland, Durham and Middlesbrough as well as accessible from North Yorkshire and Southern Scotland. Our Texas Turbine converted Cessna 208B regularly lifts 15 parachutists to 15,000ft up & down in 15 minutes, as well as 4 place Cessna 182 climbing to 10,000ft in 30 minutes.
