Today me and my boyfriend did our first tandem skydive at Peterlee Skydive Academy. It was the craziest and best thing either of us have done and we loved it! Big thank you to our trainers, instructors and cameramen especially Mark, Dave, Alan and Steve! Very well trained and helped to put us at ease!

A second booking later with Peterlee Parachute Centre for my Tandem Skydive was just AMAZEBALLS!!!!!! They were only too happy to make sure myself and three fellow skydivers jumped on the same day. THANK YOU SO MUCH for the PLAN, it worked.
Of course i was excited and jumping with adrenaline before the jump but when you actually start that climb in the plane reality kicks in and feeling anxious kicks in. As we shuffle to the edge of the plane (after many laughs and jokes) it was F F F but before you know it you're free-falling! Oops my glasses slip back above the lovely helmet but quickly recovered and the amazement you feel is so UN-REAL! We then open the shoot and MAD MICK starts playing around! At first I wasn't keen but when my cousin shows up beside us and i saw how cool a ride she was having i said let's do that. Landing was perfect...very soft. I still can't believe i have actually done it and A VERY BIG YES i would do it again with PETERLEE PARACHUTE CENTRE. A VERY BIG THANK YOU to you all.
