The ultimate adrenalin experience! After a twenty five minute nail biting plane ride to reach the required altitude, the roar of the engines softens and you realise your time has come, it’s now or never as you are over the drop zone. What follows is up to 7,000ft of freefall at speeds of around 120mph strapped securely to a qualified instructor. At 5000ft the instructor deploys the parachute and you float gently into the landing zone.
Your voucher is valid for 10 months for one person. For those under 18 years of age a separate signed letter of consent from a parent or guardian will be required before training commences.
