Thsi is your opportunity to do a parachute jump from 3,500 - 4,500 feet in the air. This experience consists of a static line fixed cord attached to the aircraft. This is a great hands on experience and is one you will never forget. Our Experience Hunters have found the best way to enjoy your first Parachute Jump in Cumbria.
- You will receive a minimum of 6 hours on-ground training
- Head up into the air, at least 3,500 feet
- Jump out of the plane attached to a static line which will automatically deploy
- Steer and land your own parachute safely back to ground level
Unfortunately some restrictions apply to skydiving; the venue will reserve the right to refuse anyone that they believe is unfit or unsuitable for RAPS. We will ask you your age, height and weight. These restrictions exist for your own safety and for that of our instructors.
The minimum age is 16 years old and under 18 must provide us with a parental consent. The maximum height will be 15 stone subject to BMI, you may provide us a medical consent if you are 40 or older, or if you have any medical problems.
Your training will start normally as this is not weather dependent. A decision on the suitability of the weather conditions will be made once all the training has been completed.
The ground training takes up most of the day. Ideally the student will complete their first skydive on the same day, however this is not always possible due to adverse weather conditions, perhaps the student is tired or perhaps there is simply not enough daylight as the actual length of the course will depend on the size and ability of a class.
This voucher entitles just one person to enjoy the experience but you will share the training with up to 12 people.
Spectators are not allowed at this experience.
You will need to wear warm, comfortable clothing, a good pair of training shoes or boots
This experience is available during the selected days around the year.
