Skyline Skydiving offer tandem skydiving at Durham airfield. We understand the anticipation, the thrill and the liberating empowerment that can be experienced on a skydive – so whether you’re considering skydiving for a charity or just for yourself, we’re here to help make it happen safely, smoothly and as comfortably as it can be.
Your jump in Durham will cost £305 (which includes our £70 registration fee). If you’d like to jump for a registered charity instead, you can jump for free – that’s as long as you raise £395 for them. We work with over 3,000 charities for a huge range of causes that you can choose from.
You will be strapped to one of our licenced instructors and from this location, you can jump from heights of 10,000 to 13,000 feet. If that’s not quite high enough for you, you can choose to upgrade a further 2,000 feet and jump from a height of 15,000 feet for an additional £30. If you would like something to remember your jump by, you can purchase videos and stills of your skydive from £100.
You can skydive at the Durham airfield on Wednesdays, Fridays and at the weekend. You will need to weigh no more than 14 stone and 4 pounds if you’re female and 15 stone and 2 pounds if you’re male to skydive from this location.
You’ll be reaching speeds of 125mph as you fall through the sky. Your qualified instructor will be doing all the work, so you don’t have any responsibilities other than taking in the views.
If you’ve made it this far, you must be seriously considering a skydive. Some might call you crazy – but our experience based on what each of our customers say is that you won’t regret going through with it. Whether you’re a newbie to skydiving or you’re an experienced adrenaline junkie, the thrill of the jump is usually a life-changing experience.
The entire skydive from jump to landing on the ground only lasts a few minutes from start to finish, but when you’re in the air, it feels like an eternity. Suspended in freefall, time seems to freeze and a few seconds can feel like a few minutes or longer. Reaching fast speeds during your fall is definitely up there in terms of reasons to go skydiving, but those high speeds are followed by the glide to landing where it will slow right down and you can take in the views.
