Lincoln Skydiving - Tandem Skydive

Tandem Skydive with Target Skysports in Hibaldstow - experience the highest tandem skydive in the UK, enjoying 60 seconds of free fall from a height of 15,000ft over the picturesque grounds of Lincoln

Tandem Skydives in Lincoln are the ideal way to taste the high octane adrenaline world of the thrill seekers, as Hibaldstow Airfield is not only a picturesque setting with fantastic views from up there, but is also the UK's highest tandem skydive taken anywhere! Jumping from a height of around 15,000ft, you'll experience somewhere near 60 seconds of free fall before the instructor deploys the parachute - ready to begin around 6-7 minutes of parachuting back to earth with the most incredible views of the Lincolnshire countryside all around you. The immense adrenaline rush combined with the unique nature of free fall make this tandem skydiving experience an absolute must - and worth travelling for!Your tandem skydive in Lincoln will begin when you sign the registration documents at Hibaldstow Airfield, before moving into the classroom to start a 20 minute training session consisting of watching a video on the techniques and safety aspects of skydiving. Then, once briefed you'll move to the practice mats for a lesson in where to put your limbs and head throughout the dive, before donning the safety gear and making your way to the plane ready for take off. On the airfield, you'll be strapped to your instructor's back and begin your ascent to 15,000ft - ready to take the highest tandem skydive in the UK! Once at the desired height, an instructor will open the height and begin the skydiving! Sat in two rows on the floor of the plane, you will shuffle your way to the hatch ready to dangle your legs over the edge - where the views of the Lincolnshire countryside and the carpet of clouds is quite incredible! Throughout the jump the instructor is in charge, and he will roll forward to begin the jump and then open the parachute after around 60 seconds of free fall - ready to begin around 6-7 minutes of gently parachuting back to earth. Once landed, you can remove the safety clothes and pick up your certificate - ready to go home with one scratched off the bucket list!

Where is it Located
What to wear

You should wear comfortable casual clothes for your tandem skydive at Hibaldstow, as you will be provided with the safety equipment once at the airfield.

The safety equipment provided includes a Jump Suit, Goggles, Cap & Gloves.

It is advisable to wrap up warm in the cold winter months, as standing around at the Lincoln based centre and the temperature at 15,000ft can be mightily chilly.

Weather

Skydiving in Lincoln is weather dependent.

Conditions such as heavy wind, rain or snow will at the very least delay your tandem skydive. If the visibility of the ground from the plane is poor, you also cannot skydive, so there may be a wait at the centre until the conditions allow the jump to be taken.

If the conditions are unworkable, the experience will need to be rescheduled for another more convenient date.

Best thing I have ever done, will be coming back for more!

I have nothing bad to say about Hibaldstow skydive Centre. I was very lucky as the weather was perfect on the day I chose so there were no long waits to jump. (Good tip) The earlier you arrive the sooner u get to jump. The instructor was friendly and put my nerves at ease. Overall, its probably the biggest adrenaline rush I've ever had.
