Suffolk Skydiving is the ideal way to experience the ultimate adrenaline found anywhere on or off this planet! Flying from Beccles Airfield in Ellough, the tandem skydive Suffolk is a truly glorious experience that combines a 13,000ft jump height with 50 seconds of free fall - providing a fantastic option to cross one off the bucket list! With an expert instructor strapped to your back, you'll be on the most extreme passenger ride - without having to do anything except take in the surreal nature of free fall and the incredible views that come as standard with the freedom of skydiving.Your tandem skydive in Suffolk will begin with a registration session, before moving to the classroom for a video brief in the safety aspects and techniques required to complete your jump. Then, you'll move to the practice mats for a practical session in where to tuck your limbs and head throughout the jump - before donning the safety gear and moving out to the runway ready to take to the skies with the instructor strapped to your back. Once you have reached the desired height of 13,000ft - the first instructor at the front of the queue will open the hatch and begin the free fall! One by one, skydivers will leap from the open door and then when your time arises you'll shuffle forward, dangle your legs over the edge and roll forward on the instructor's call - falling into the carpet of cloud that is covering the patchwork countryside in a beautifully surreal way. 50 seconds of the most intense adrenaline hit will follow, as you fall at 120mph toward the earth - covering around 8,000ft - before the instructor deploys the parachute and you begin around 6-7 minutes of canopied floating back to ground level. You'll then be presented with a certificate and the memories of completing a skydive!
