Sky Diving

Tandem skydiving gives you the opportunity to experience the thrill of freefall. You will experience 40 seconds in freefall and you will have approximately five minutes under the parachute. Just imagine freefalling at 120mph, falling amongst clouds, just like flying!

You will jump from up to 13,500 feet attached to your instructor using a specially designed dual harness. The instructor controls the freefall, parachute opening and landing, leaving you free to enjoy the stunning views and the sensation of freefall.

There is no better feeling than skydiving from an aeroplane when it's for fun and to raise money for charity, so why not give us a call for an experience to remember for ever? We ask you to raise a mimimum sponsorship of £500 to support visually impaired people throughout Derbyshire.
