Using the British Parachute Association Ram-Air Progression System (RAPS), over two days you will learn all the necessary techniques to jump safely from an altitude of over 3000 feet, with a parachute that automatically opens.
You will leave the aircraft from around 3,200 feet and the ram-air canopy is activated automatically by a static line. Now test your skill and judgement in guiding the wing to the correct landing area before trying your hand at landing like the experts. Don't forget to enjoy the view, you can see for miles on a clear day! Throughout your jump you will be in radio contact with your instructor who will guide you to soft landing.
Minimum age is 18, whilst the maximum 49. Max weight is around 15 stone and should be relative to your height. Check carefully to ensure you meet the strict health restrictions. Must be reasonably fit with good upper arm strength and will need a doctor's certificate if you are over 39. This experience is not suitable if you are pregnant or suffering from heart or back conditions.
Jumping is always subject to weather conditions. Cancellations are made with your safety in mind. Please call the centre before you leave.
This course will involve around eight to ten hours of training from British Parachute Association approved instructors, over one or two days, followed by your jump.
The number of people taking part will vary.
Spectators are generally welcome. Be sure to bring a camera as there will be some fantastic shots to be taken.
