Static Line Parachute Jump (RAPS) - Swindon

This is your chance to jump from a plane - alone - just an hour outside London. Experience the supreme buzz of solo parachuting in Swindon, take the first steps towards getting your skydiving licence.

Price for 1 participant

Jump from a plane on your own, after just 6 hours of training, with this Static Line Parachute Jump in Swindon. It's high up on the bucket lists of many people, and with good reason - parachuting and skydiving offer a sense of freedom and flight that we don't get to experience every day. With this experience, you don't have to jump while strapped to an instructor, rather you learn canopy control skills for yourself, and the rig is set up so that your parachute deploys automatically. This means you don't have to worry about anything but steering your chute back to earth.

You'll have 6 comprehensive hours of training, after which you'll feel confident to get up there and do it, and once you have completed this course, you can progress to more intense skydiving until you're ready for full-on freefall!

The skydiving centre in Swindon is just 1 1/2 hours from London city centre.
