Exhilaration guaranteed with Skydiving in Devon! We think a tandem skydive is the best way to experience this thrilling extreme sport without having to learn how, as you are strapped to an instructor for the entire duration of your jump. During this amazing aerial thrill, you can reach speeds of up to 120mph and then enjoy the peace and tranquility when the canopies are opened.

The first recorded parachute jump was made in 1797 when Andre-Jacques Garnerin made a jump from a hot air balloon, however the history dates back to 1485 when Leonardo Da Vinci sketched the first blueprints of a parachute. Even before the second world war, skydiving was classed as a recreational activity and by 1952 it became an international sport and skydive schools just like this one near Honiton in Exeter started opening up around the UK, as more and more skyborne daredevils want to give it a go.

This skydive site near Exeter in Devon has been associated with parachuting since 1964 and is ideally located to cater for those from the Cornwall, Somerset, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Dorset and Devon areas. The jump zone offers fantastic scenery giving you coastline views of both the Bristol and English Channels and is renowned for being one of the most scenic drop zones in the country.

On the day you will have a full safety briefing and be fitted out in your jumpsuit, headgear, goggles, gloves and harness then its time to take off to the skies.  The “Black Beech 99” deemed to be one of the fastest and most comfortable jump planes in the world, will transport you to approximately 10,000ft above sea level. Safely attached to your instructor and “other half” for your tandem jump, its time to move towards that open aircraft door and get ready to hear the word “GO!” as you exit the plane. From then on it really is go all the way....freefalling for up to two miles will be the most adrenaline pumping moment of your life. When the canopy opens it all slows down. Enjoy the scenery for the parachute ride down to terra firma which lasts about five minutes in total. Whilst you are up in the air, there will also be an opportunity for you to assist with the steering of the chute.

So, for all you wannabe sky Gods and Goddesses, skydiving in Devon is the place to jump.  You won’t find another drop zone provides the spectacular views you will witness when that canopy opens. So if you have the guts.....let’s get going and experience the freefall madness of a Devonshire skydive.
