Tandem Skydive - Experience a long freefall, safe in the hands of one of our very experienced Club Instructors. After a short briefing the Tilstock aircraft will take you to up to ten thousand feet, nearly 2 miles. You will be able to check out the views on the way up before sliding to the edge of the door attached to one of our team of Instructors. You will freefall for up to 30 seconds before the parachute opens at about 5000' above the ground. Enjoy the cruise down to the landing area.
Solo Static Line Jump Course
Jump on your own! This course is designed for novices. No experience necessary. If you want to be in control of the parachute and jump out of our aircraft from over three thousand feet, steering the parachute down by yourself, maybe this is for you. After a day's tuition by our Club Instructors you will be ready to jump on your own.

Absolutely loved my skydive on Friday!! Still buzzing 3 days later! And to top it off ive raised around 2k (to be finalised!) for Alzheimer's - a charity that is really close to my heart. Thanks especially to Lee my tandem instructor & cameraman Buzz!!! Cannot wait to see the pictures & dvd and re-live it all over again! Soooo tempted to come back and do a solo jump now , ive definitely got the skydiving bug!! Definitely one of those 'bucket list' things that everybody should do at least once in their lifetime! Maybe see you all again soon
Can't wait to skydive again, can't tell you how much of a buzz I got on Saturday. I am still grinning like a Cheshire cat and its now 4 days after. The next time I go up I will take one of my besties with me. Thanks to Chris my instructor and Wilko my cameraman, I received my DVD today and can't wait to show it off - might have to have a cinema at our house soon! I can't encourage you enough to get up there and try this amazing sport out.
Beautiful day for my first tandem skydive. To say that I wasn't nervous would be an understatement, although all the staff were excellent at the centre and explained what was going on. It was one of the most exciting things I have ever done and I am sure I will be back again..... this is the start of Skydiving for me I think !! A massive thankyou to Paul my instructor for getting me to the ground safely :) and also to Lee who filmed my experience... wouldn't have been the same without it !!!!
Dear Team, I'm not going to put a comment on your guestbook because I didnt actually do a skydive, however, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for a brillant day on the 15th March. My daughter (Natasha Cooper) did a charity tandem with Tony Lightfoot. Your whole team were fantastic throughtout the day (even when everything was delayed due to the Royal fly over)and made her day spectacular and the experience (not just the jump but the welcome she and I recieved from your team) helped her with her confidence and self esteem. Her jump wasnt till the end of the day but while we waited we were warmly welcomed by staff and regulars alike which added to the experience. A big thank you to Ange too for the drinks. I would deffinatly recommend your centre to anyone purly on the fact that everyone is made welcome whether they are jumping or not. Who knows - if i loose a little weight I may come back myself next year :S
I thoroughly enjoyed my tandem skydive experience this weekend. I did it to raise money for Nightingale House Hospice, Wrexham. I would also like to thank the skydiving team who looked after us all well, especially Paul who I did the tandem skydive with. He looked after me well and explained everything fully. I would recommend tandem skydiving to everybody.
