Overview

They say that the first solo parachute jump is always the one you remember the most. There is no chance of you forgetting this opportunity. This splendid package puts you on a two day tuition course at the end of which you will make a solo parachute jump. The first day you'll do both theoretical and practical sessions on a range of subjects – safety regulation, sky diving techniques, steering, landing and many others in order to prepare you for the jump ahead. On the second day you'll be taken up to 3000ft, the aeroplane door will be opened and you will launch yourself into the void. The static line will release the parachute and you will drift slowly to earth, admiring the beautiful view and the complete tranquillity as you do so.

What's included?
  • Full 2 day static line parachute jumping course and jump
  • Day 1 – Theoretical and practical sessions on safety regulation education, skydiving techniques, landing, secondary 'chute training etc
  • Day 2 – 3000ft Static line solo parachute jump

Amazing Experience
20 February 2013
I received this gift as a Christmas present and was both thrilled and terrified. The training took place at Flookburgh airfield and was very thorough. The staff were lovely and explained everything in great detail. Unfortunately it was too windy for us to jump on the same day so I had to return. Following a couple of visits which were either too windy or too cloudy I finally had a beautiful day. I was taken through the basics again before going up,up and away. I was the only static line jumper on that particular plane. The instructor talked all the way up and the view out of the plane was lovely. Then PANIC! The door opened and out I leapt. I was so busy panicking I forgot the basics for a few seconds then it all kicked in (by which time the parachute was open!) It was truly amazing. The view was spectacular and it was so peaceful. The ground instructor talked to me when necessary and it was a great, easy landing. I was like a Cheshire cat. I just wanted to run around squealing like a big kid. I would've loved to go back up there and then. Fab, Fab, Fab. Go for it. If I can do it anyone can. (No I'm not good at heights or standing close to the edge of anything) :-) Wow wow wow!!! Loved it!

Hi just wanted to let you know what an amazing time I had on my static line parachure jump. I didn't want to do the tandem skydive so this seemed liek a good option and I'm really pleased I asked for it for my 21st! The instructors are really good and make you feel comfortable with what you'll be doing with the parachute and how to land. No complaints at all!
