This is your chance to try a Parachute Jump in the North West of England. With this static line that is attached to the aircraft you will experience the parachute jump from approx 4,000ft. The parachute will open automatically as you fall away from the aircraft.
As you progress through the RAPS system, you will move on to freefall, gradually jumping from higher and higher altitudes.
Our Static-line first jump course consists of a structured series of class lectures and practical work. At the end of it, you will take a written test and be ready to make the jump.

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 weekends but weekday experiences can be arranged.
