The Experience of a Lifetime!
The Ultimate Altitude Skydive
We are one of very few centres that jump from Flight level 150 - 15,000ft! This is the highest possible skydive without an oxygen supply.
Our instructors have combined total of 60,000+ skydives! We maintain an impeccable safety record, second to none.
Based at Dunkeswell airfield, home to parachuting since 1964.
Most Luxurious Jump Planes
We have the biggest plane capacity in the UK with our fleet of Beech 99 aircraft. They will get you to 15,000ft faster than any skydive plane in Europe!
We are based in Central Devon, on clear days giving us the unique view of both the North and South coastline. It’s sure to take your breath away.
What is a Tandem Skydive?
A Tandem Skydive is an easy and enjoyable way to experience the thrills of skydiving. The Exhilarating Freefall combined with the peace and tranquillity of the parachute ride makes Tandem Skydiving a unique experience you will never forget.
After your safety briefing with an Experienced Instructor who will teach you everything you need to know, you will then be ready to take to the skies. On your pre-boarding call you will meet your Instructor who will prepare you for your skydive; fitting your jumpsuit, head gear, goggles (suitable for contact lenses/glasses), gloves and harness.
Once aboard our aircraft you will be securely harnessed to your instructor as you ride up to your chosen altitude. Our aircraft take approximately 10 minutes to climb to 15,000ft, giving time to take in views including the South and North Devon coastlines, Cornwall, Somerset, Dorset and the Bristol Channel to South Wales. Many people say we are one of the most scenic Drop Zones in the country!
Once at altitude, you will get the green light for ‘GO!’ and you will experience the most exhilarating, adrenaline fuelled moment of your life as you and your instructor edge towards the door and launch into the sky.
During freefall you will experience speeds of approximately 120mph. Feel the air on your face for up to a full minute, falling around 2 miles!! Enjoy the unparalleled freedom of this unforgettable sport.
As the canopy opens, you will become aware of the sudden tranquility as your speed dramatically decreases. This allows you to talk with your instructor, take in the expansive scenery during the 5 minute approximate parachute ride and of course, have a safe landing. Help your instructor steer the parachute around the sky before gliding back to the airfield.

There are various medical reasons why a person should not take part in a skydive. However, we are happy to take people who are deemed ‘safe to jump medically’ by their G.P. or consultant, even if they suffer from medical conditions.
