- Swindon (Wiltshire)
- Price for 1 Participant
Tandem Skydiving in Swindon is the ultimate adrenaline rush for the extreme thrill seekers out there, as a mighty combination of almost 40 seconds free fall combined with the picturesque Wiltshire countryside views on offer ensure skydivers are in for a quite breath taking treat. At just 60 minutes away from London, Redlands Airfield in Wanborough has been offering 10,000ft tandem skydives for over 6 years now - and has become one of the fastest growing drop zones in the country. With an experienced instructor strapped to your back, you are free to enjoy the most incredible journey back to earth - at 120mph.Your Tandem Skydive experience in Wiltshire will begin with a registration session, filling out the forms and watching a video on the safety and techniques regarding free fall and parachuting. Then, once briefed you'll be ready to don the safety gear and hit the practice mats for some practical demonstrations, such as where to put your hands, legs and head during the skydive. Then, once fully briefed - you'll make your way to the runway with your instructor and climb into the plane to sit in rows ready to jump! Sat between the legs of your instructor attached to his chest by your back, you and your fellow drop-zoners will be eagerly awaiting ascending to the desired where the hatch will open. Once open, you will shuffle up one by one, dangle your legs over the edge and drop 5,000ft reaching terminal velocity of 120mph - before the instructor deploys the parachute and you enjoy 6-7 minutes of gently floating back to earth. Once landed, you'll be presented with a certificate and will be free to go home once you've taken the safety gear off!

In a lot of instances, this will involve standing around at the clubhouse of Redlands Airfield. However, if the weather conditions are unworkable - your Swindon skydive may be rearranged for another convenient date.
Was an absolutely amazing day. The staff made the experience very special.
Everything as excellent, very professional, instructors were brilliant, and I even had the unexpected opportunity to buy a cd with some decent photos at the end. only thing that tainted the experience was the wait, arrived at 12ish to jump at 4ish, on a clear weather day, this is the only thing that puts me off rebooking anytime soon. Aside from that the experience was awesome, thanks.
Was a fantastic experience. Highly recommend this centre and the staff. Had a brilliant time - thanks!
It was all very professional. The instructors put everyone at ease. I really enjoyed the experience and I'm even thinking about doing it again. I never thought I would say that!
