This was my first jump and I was nervous but the guys at UK Parachuting were super relaxed and fun and put me at my ease. The jump was an awesome experience. A superb day!

I had been wanting to do this for many years so bit the bullet and decided as a 50th bucket list pressie. I was not disappointed, the whole experience from start to finish amazing, incredible, mind blowing. On arrival you check in hand over the forms and then wait in excitement for your call. I met my tandem buddy (Rick) who when looking at me (maximum weight) said this is going to be fast. I had arranged for the experience to be filmed and in my opinion well worth it. In all the excitement I think my camera man was (John). You attend the hanger to get your safety brief and kitted out. The family are able to watch, take photo's there is a cafe that you can get hot/cold food & drinks just a few minutes walk from the parachute centre. On boarding the aircraft the crew are talking with you, having a laugh and joke very relaxed atmosphere. The exit was absolutely incredible a sunny clear day 2 1/2 miles up the view up and down the coast was wow. I didn't even consider looking down as was so excited. The fear I expected never turned up and I can only think it's because my mind couldn't take in the distance to the ground. The free fall (Rick) was an expert in full control from start to finish. Once the canopy opened and we started the controlled decent we had time for a few stunts twists and turns (corkscrews) before coming in for a soft landing. If I was able to I would have been on to the next plane for another jump. An incredible amazing experience with my video and photos turning up a week later to relive the whole experience again and again. I will return with out a doubt. Thank you.

Amazing experience today, thank you guys! Special thanks to Gavin for keeping me safe and getting me down in one piece, Callum and Camy for filming my memories... What a fantastic place, everyone is so friendly, will definitely do it again. To my fellow jumpers, Paul and Linda - it was great meeting you, sorry i didn't see you to say goodbye - hope you loved it as much as I did! xxx
