ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Tandem Skydive Nottingham

Tandem Skydive Experience in Nottingham. Free fall 50 seconds after jumping from 13,000ft with an instructor controlling the entire parachuting experience.

Tandem skydiving in Nottingham is the ultimate mixture of adrenaline, sight seeing and realising a dream off the bucket list - as jumping from 13,000ft not only provides incredible views of the East Midlands - but also gives you around 50 seconds of free fall! With an instructor attached to your back and in control of the jump, you'll be experiencing the most fantastic journey of your life after just 20 minutes of training! Located at the WWII bomber base in the Vale of Belvoir's Langar Airfield, British Parachute Schools have been operating for nearly four decades and conduct around 30,000 jumps every year! Experience the rush of free fall and enjoy a skydive in Nottingham!Your tandem skydive experience in Nottingham will begin with a registration at BPS Langar Airfield's reception, before moving into the classroom to begin the theory. After a discussion with the instructor and a video brief, you'll move to the practice mats for a practical session in where to tuck your head and limbs throughout the jump - before donning the safety gear and making your way to the runway to get airborne! The instructor will strap your back to his chest and you'll take a seat in the Cessna Grand Caravan Turbine, before the first instructor opens the hatch and begins the skydiving at 13,000ft! When it's your turn, you'll shuffle up to the door, dangle your legs over the surreal landscape - and roll forward to begin 50 seconds of euphoric ecstasy as you descend 8,000ft in 50 seconds - at a speed of around 120mph! The instructor will then open the parachute at around 5,000ft and you'll enjoy a gentle 6-7 minutes of open canopied parachuting back to terra firma. Once landed, you'll remove the safety gear and be free to go home with an irremovable grin from ear to ear! You'll be presented with a certificate to commemorate the day you crossed off the most extreme activity off your bucket list.

Duration

Experience Duration: 02:00

Time at Venue: 06:00

It is recommended that you allow a whole day for a tandem skydive in Nottingham.

The skydive experience will last for a bit less than an hour, with 20 minutes of training, 20 minutes of flying up to 13,000ft - 50 seconds of free fall and around 6-7 minutes of open canopied parachuting back to earth. However, with the weather conditions on the day, the time your flight is booked for and the amount of other skydivers on the day; this will of course take longer.

Max Group Size: -1

Spectators Allowed on Site: Yes

Family and friends are welcome to watch your big day of skydiving, and are encouraged to bring a camera to capture the moments of elation before and after the jump.

Langar Airfield has a clubhouse with bar and canteen facilities, serving refreshments, hot drinks, food and alcohol (for post-skydiving!) throughout the day.

There is a maximum of 50 skydives a day for this skydiving experience, so group bookings are possible. Usually, 2 - 4 skydivers are lifted at one time in the same plane, but this is flexible and subject to availability.

£80 can be paid to the skydiving company directly on the day if you wish yous skydive to be filmed and photographed.

Where is it Located
What to wear

You can wear comfortable and casual clothes for your tandem skydive in Nottingham, as you'll be wearing the safety equipment provided by the British Parachute Schools.

This will include a jump suit, a cap, goggles and gloves - which can be worn over the clothes you arrive in.

It is advisable to dress for the weather, as standing around at the centre waiting for the jump can be very cold - and of course the subzero temperature at 13,000ft make wrapping up warm a good idea. In the summer months - shorts, T-shirts and sunglasses are recommended.

£80 can be paid to the skydiving company directly on the day if you wish yous skydive to be filmed and photographed.

Weather

Nottingham skydiving experiences are weather dependent - and are subject to the East Midlands' conditions on the day.

If the wind, rain or snow conditions on the day are impairing the vision of the ground from 13,000ft - you may need to wait around at the Vale of Belvoir's Langar Airfield until it is clearer.

If the conditions on the day aren't going to clear, your skydive will be rescheduled for a more convenient date.
