Tandem Skydive

Tandem Skydiving voucher which you can use at any of the locations we have here at Experience Days - choosing from over 10 airfields. Experience the adrenaline of free fall when jumping from a plane!

Price for 1 participant

Tandem skydiving is officially the most exciting of adrenaline experiences, combining the incredible sensation of free fall with the best scenic views found anywhere across the country - from a range of heights as you descend back to earth at Gravity's will! With an experienced skydiving instructor attached to your back, you'll be free to appreciate every aspect of what's going on around you - leaving all the parachuting technicalities to the experienced skydiver who will control every aspect and land you back on terra firma after around 8 minutes of unbridled skydiving joy! With this great Tandem Skydive voucher, you can choose any of the airfields we have here at Experience Days - and when you'd most like to jump!

Your tandem skydive experience will begin with a welcome registration at your airfield of choice, before moving on into the classroom to begin a safety and technique brief watching a video with your expert instructor. Then, once briefed and ready - you'll hit the practice mats for a practical session learning where to place your limbs and head throughout the jump. You'll then be ready to don the safety gear and get out onto the runway with your instructor, who will strap you to his chest before taking a seat together on the plane in one or two rows of skydivers. With the tension and excitement high, you'll make your way up to the desired height - where the instructor will open the hatch ready to make the most excitingly fantastic journey of your life! Sat with your legs dangling over the edge of the plane's open door, the instructor will roll forward and you'll begin the intense rush of free fall for between 30 and 60 seconds (depending on the jump height) before the instructor deploys the parachute and you start the 6-8 minutes of gently parachuting back to ground level. Once landed, you'll take off the safety gear, be presented with a certificate and will then be free to leave the airfield with one scratched off the bucket list!

Please download the form, here.

Any jumpers who do not meet the conditions of the declaration of health will be required to complete the BPA Request for Medical Advice form - this is to be signed by your doctor prior to the jump. Failure to complete this will prohibit you from skydiving.

If you are disabled this does not mean you cannot skydive!
It is advisable to allow a whole day for your tandem skydiving experience.

Depending on the weather conditions and the time that your jump is booked in for, you may be at the centre for anything from 2 to 10 hours.

The skydive itself will generally last around 30-35 minutes: with flying up to the desired jump height (between 10,000ft & 15,000ft) taking around 25 minutes, free fall lasting for anything between 30 seconds and 60 seconds - and the somewhere between 5 and 8 minutes of gently parachuting back down to terra firma.
Friends and family are welcome to watch your tandem skydiving experience at any of the airfields, and most come complete with a clubhouse and canteen serving some form of refreshments.

At every drop zone, it is advised that spectators bring a camera to capture the excitement on skydiver's faces both pre and post jump!
Tandem skydiving is available on different dates at different airfields throughout the year.

With this voucher, you can take your skydiving experience whenever you'd like - as everyday across the week and weekend is covered by this voucher.

Most tandem skydives take place close to or on the weekend.
You should wear comfortable and casual clothes for your tandem skydive, as you'll be wearing the safety equipment of the parachuting club on the day.

This will include a jump suit, goggles, gloves and a skydiving cap.

You should wear clothes that are suited for the weather. It is especially advised to wrap up warm in the cold winter months, as standing around at the centre and the air temperature between 10,000ft - 15,000ft is rather chilly!
The weather plays a huge part in the availability of Tandem Skydiving.

If there is too much wind, rain or snow - or if the visibility of the ground is poor from the jump height is poor - the experience will be delayed and you may be required to hang around at the centre for a little while.

If the conditions on the day are not going to clear, your tandem skydive will be rearranged for a convenient date.
