Owner description: Parachute jump, sky dive
Reviewed 30 November 2017 via mobile

I done my first skydive back in July. I got the bug! My second five weeks later.

Well I didn't think it could get better than the first but it did. I had a great tandem instructor in Max who was really friendly and chatty and cameraman Cammy.

A few weeks after that I done tandem number 3 with Cammy as my cameraman again and Phil was my instructor. Knowing I planned to do the AFF course Phil talked to me about it and gave me loads of useful info when we were under canopy. Every jump has been amazing.

Then I moved onto the AFF course. Just myself and one other guy on ground school. Six hours of intense training before doing my first jump with two instructors the following day. Dave filmed my jump, I was so nervous but I had great instructors with me. Every level of AFF has been brilliant and the instruction has been really good. Yolande has seen me through the entire AFF course has been really helpful even when I struggled on a couple of jumps she got me sorted. Last weekend I qualified for my A licence.

The whole crew are friendly, helpful and encouraging which is perfect when you are thinking of getting into a sport like skydiving.

I highly recommend the photo and video packages. I had all three tandems and my level 1 AFF filmed and photographed and I treasure them. You don’t see yourself do it so it’s worth every penny in my opinion.

Give it a go you won’t look back.

The whole experience was fantastic :) The staff are incredibly friendly, very reassuring, and it just made the whole thing great. We went there from London, which is a bit of a drive, but I would still recommend it as the surrounding nature is beautiful, especially if its your first jump. Also, there are some nice cosy pubs around for a celebratory lunch/drink.
Very professional instructors, and I felt safe the whole time. My instructor had done something like 22k jumps!
They also offer filming, which at first I thought was a little expensive, but its justified as a cameraman jumps out with you to film it! Also very much worth it.
Would definitely do it again!!!!!
