On the Day

What Happens During The Tandem Course


Before you book your Tandem skydive, please check the next available dates and locations for our civilian courses. Once you book your jump (initial £50 deposit required), you will be given an arrival time for one of our sessions and all relevant information emailed to you.


On the day, once you arrive on-site you need to register with our staff member and will be introduced to one of our experienced tandem instructors.

  • During a group briefing, your Tandem Instructor will explain everything you need to know about your skydiving experience and you can ask as many questions as you like.

  • Your instructor will fit you in a jumpsuit and special dual harness when its your time to jump. You will also be given headgear and goggles.

  • You will board the aircraft and during the 20 minute flight you can enjoy the beautiful views of the British countryside.

  • After leaping from the open door you’ll experience up to one minute of freefall.

  • The instructor opens your parachute at around 5,000ft and you then enjoy around 5-6 minutes under canopy taking in the spectacular views. During this time you will be able to talk to your instructor and even try steering. Your instructor will take control for the landing and you can breathe a sigh of relief when back on solid ground!

  • The spectator area is not far away, so your instructor will take you there and give you time to tell your family and friends about your experience.

  • Before you leave, you will be presented with a Tandem Jump certificate to prove you were brave enough to ­skydive.

  • If you booked our video and photo package, then this will be ready either shortly after you land, or during busy times we may post it on to you.


Your skydiving experience ideally takes only a few hours and we book staggered arrival times in order to reduce waiting times as much as possible.

Normally on a weekend you should expect to be with us for 4-5 hours and midweek 3-4 hours. However, we cannot account for weather or other delays so please do not be in a rush and allow yourself the whole day to enjoy this unique experience.
