Unless you’re a regular flyer, how do you know what to expect from executing a skydive? Well, we’re here to tell you! A day in the life:

  1. Arrival:

Once you arrive at the airfield at your allocated arrival time, you will head to the reception desk to check in. With your medical form at hand, you will hand it over to the team behind the desk. They will give you an introduction and what to expect you’re your skydive.


  1. Kit up:

Depending on the airfield, the crew may kit you up with a skydive jump suit. For some airfield’s this won’t be necessary however they will always give you everything you need for the jump i.e., goggles and helmet.


  1. Training:

You will be given specialist training from the team. The British Skydiving approved training will only take around 10-15 minutes and will give you all the information you need to complete the parachute jump safely.


  1. Going up:

You will be greeted by your personal skydive instructor who will escort you to the plane. They will make sure your harness is secured to theirs and the flight will commence. The pilot will take you up to the correct altitude which shouldn’t take any longer than 20 minutes. You will take in all the views below before your instructor moved you towards to door.


  1. Going down:

The instructor will tilt your head back and edge out of the plane. Strapped to your instructor you will fall out into the air at about 125mph. Depending on whether you’re jumping from 10,000ft or 15,000ft – the fall will last between 30-60 seconds.


  1. The parachute:

At 5,000ft the instructor will deploy the parachute which will slow you down. As you drift down to the landing area you will enjoy the quiet and peaceful atmosphere.


  1. Landing:

Once you reach landing, you will assume the landing position as explained in the training. And that’s done!

You would have completed one of the most exhilarating experiences of your life. Now you know all that, what’s stopping you? Get started today here.
