A Parachute Jump can be done just as a one off experience or as part of a course to progress on to freefall and skydiving. If you have time but want to spread the cost of learning to skydive over a longer period of time then the SL course may be just for you. It is a good way of experiencing parachuting if it is something that you might like to carry on with without the expense of an Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) Course.A single static line jump can also be done as a sponsored event for charity. A list of organisations promoting this is available upon request.

  • Minimum of 6 hours of instruction.

  • Solo jump from 3,500 ft closely supervised by expert instructors.
  • Parachute automatically opened by a static line securely attached to the aircraft.
  • Certificate issued upon completion of your parachute jump.
  • Can be used as a starting point to becoming a fully qualified skydiver.

A video of your skydive can be arranged at the centre on the day of your jump.
