After a short briefing, enjoy the flight in our aircraft up to 10 thousand feet, nearly 2 miles, checking out the views on the way up before sliding to the edge of the door attached to one of our Tandem Sky Jumping Instructors. You freefall for up to 30 seconds before the parachute opens at about 5000 feet above the ground. Enjoy the cruise down to the landing area opposite the club house.
If you want to be in control of the parachute and jump out of our aircraft from over 3 thousand feet, steering the parachute down by yourself, maybe this is for you. After a days tuition you will be ready to jump on your own.
Based at Tilstock Airfield and the home of Manchester Skydivers in 1964 and Manchester Freefall Club in 1967. The Parachute Centre can give you the experience of a lifetime sky diving event or guide you through the system to qualify as a skydiver.
Skydiving gives you a sensation you cannot explain to those who haven't skydived. You have to experience it to understand.
You can imagine the sensation of sitting on the edge of the aircraft and falling earth bound. You imagine it being similar to driving over the edge on a big dipper or in a fast car over a hump-back bridge and the weird sensation you get in your stomach.
Skydiving is nothing like that. Find out here. Skydive at The Parachute Centre, the ultimate experience.
