TANDEM SKYDIVING

Read more

Thought about ticking a skydive off of your bucket list?

Book with Just a £50.00 deposit

Then you just need to raise another £320 in sponsors which will give you a free tandem skydive!!!

Everything you need to know about your skydiving experience

If you want to experience every aspect of the sport on your very first jump, a Tandem Skydive is just the thing! Following a short pre-jump briefing, you will enjoy the thrill of free fall and even learn the basics of steering and landing a modern ‘square’ gliding parachute, while securely attached to a highly experienced instructor. All you need to do is smile and enjoy your skydive.

With a tandem parachute especially designed for two people, you will board an aircraft and soar to around 13,000 feet (approximately two miles high!). When you and your instructor leave the plane, you will fall at about 120 mph, descending to 5,000 feet in around 40 seconds. At this point, your instructor will open the parachute and fly you safely back to earth! During the six minutes or so under the parachute, you will enjoy breath-taking and unique views of the local area and beyond. We guarantee that your tandem skydive will be one of the greatest experiences of your life.

On the day…

On the day of your skydive your tandem instructor will explain in detail what you have to do and what will take place during the flight up, the free fall descent and the ride down under the parachute. This briefing normally takes around 20 minutes.

After this, you will be provided with a skydiver’s jumpsuit to go over your clothes (you should wear comfortable clothing, such as a track suit, and a pair of trainers). After fitting the tandem parachute harness (and appropriate headgear and goggles) you are ready to board the plane for the 15 minute ascent. Then it’s one glorious leap out into the blue!

The Parachute Training Operations at Beccles and Peterborough are affiliated to British Skydiving (governing body). All tandem instructors are very experienced free fall parachutists who hold British Skydiving Tandem skydiving Instructor ratings. You are in safe hands.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

The minimum age is 16. There is no upper age limit.

A self-declaration medical certificate is required, however, regardless of age, you do not need to get a medical form signed by a doctor to take part in a Tandem skydive.

If you have doubts about your fitness to do a tandem jump, please discuss this with your doctor. They should read this form before giving the advice

Over 40’s do not need to get a medical form signed by a doctor to take part in a Tandem skydive. The new form can be downloaded here 

If you have doubts about your fitness to do a tandem jump, please discuss this with your doctor.

Wing Walking

Ready to join us for the challenge of a lifetime in 2020 !!

Date: 19th June 2021

Location: Damyns Hall Aerodrome, Upminster, Essex.

Would you like to tick a Wing Walk off of your bucket list ?

Just £50.00 deposit to secure your booking.

£600.00 minimum sponsorship to qualify for a FREE wing walk, which needs to be raised 48 hours before the challenge.

Please read on >>>>>

Can my friends and family come to watch my wing walk?

All your friends and family will be more than welcomed to join in the experience, we have a homely café on site which serves both hot and cold dishes as well as a large garden area with unrestricted views of your performance.

Is there a weight limit?

There is an upper weight limit of 18st. This is an absolute limit that cannot be exceeded and all wing walkers will be weighed prior to briefing.

Is there an age limit?

All wing walkers must be at least 18 years old and a maximum of 65 years old.

What should I wear?

Warm but not bulky clothing (no hoodies or scarves), soft soled flat shoes (plimsolls or trainers) and if you wish gloves. We will provide you with goggles and ear plugs.

Can I wear glasses during the flight?

Yes, all wing walkers will be given goggles to wear during the flight and we have some larger ski goggles which fit comfortably over the top of most frames.

Can I wear contact lenses during the flight?

No, unfortunately even with goggles there is a lot of wind pressure and therefore a risk of contact lenses moving in the eye. We recommend taking contacts out and wearing glasses underneath the goggles provided.

I suffer from travel sickness, will I feel sick during the wing walk?

Travel or motion sickness is often brought on in enclosed spaces where there is a lack of fresh air and disorientation results from a lack of forward visibility. During a wing walk you can see the horizon and there is plenty of fresh air, so people rarely suffer from motion sickness.

How long will the flight last?

The flight lasts approximately 10 minutes from take off to landing.

Will the aeroplane do aerobatics?

No, you will not do loops and rolls, but you will do low dives and sharp turns, so you will have an exhilarating experience! Alternatively, a gentler experience is also available, if preferred

How high does the aeroplane fly?

The aeroplane will fly to a maximum of 700ft and a minimum of 100ft on waving-runs.

How fast does the aeroplane fly?

The aeroplane will fly at between 80mph up to 130mph.

Can I have my wing walk filmed?

Yes, as an option, a video recording of the experience may be purchased on the day for £50. This is recorded on a memory stick from a professional HD camera system which has two camera views with cockpit sound, (click here to watch a sample video).

What if the weather is bad?

The weather is unpredictable in the UK so please call our operational number 48 hours before your flight to confirm the suitability of the weather. If your wing walk is cancelled then please re-book to a date that suits you.

How long will the experience last from arrival to completing my wing walk?

In normal circumstances you will fly within 90 minutes of your pre-arranged safety briefing time-slot.

How do I get on top of the aeroplane?

All wing walkers will need to be able to climb unassisted onto the wing of the aeroplane, which will require a level of flexibility.

Can I communicate with the pilot during the wing walk?

Wing walkers may communicate with the pilot via hand signals during the flight, this will be explained during the safety briefing before your wing walk.
