A nice little Experience located in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.
Skydiving might be considered utter madness, but is a thrill definitely not to be missed. Begin with around 15 minutes of instruction on skydiving and landing techniques, before ascending skywards in the plane. After thorough safety checks and being securely strapped to an instructor, perform a tandem jump from 13,000 feet, achieving around 45 seconds of adrenaline-pumping freefall. The instructor will then deploy the parachute and take the reins as the beautiful scenery unfolds during your descent back to solid ground.
This experience runs Thursday to Sunday between March and December. Please book several weeks in advance, even earlier for the most popular summer weekend dates.
Jumping is always subject to weather conditions and cancellations for this reason are made with safety in mind.
Expect to be at the centre all day – the club jumps people on a first come first served basis. A specific time can’t be booked for your jump – you’ll get more info if you call for a weather check the day before your jump.
Training might be shared, the jump is held one-to-one with a fully qualified skydiver.
Spectators are welcome. A camera and binoculars will come in handy. Dogs are not permitted at the jump site.
Dress warmly and comfortably and wear trainers.
Maximum weight is 16 stone. Minimum age is 16. Under 18’s need prior written parental consent. All jumpers are required to complete a health and safety form to confirm they are fit and able to jump.
The venue needs a minimum of two weeks notice to postpone any booking. Jumping is always subject to strict height/weight restrictions. You can usually arrange to have your jump recorded on dvd for around £99.
