Skydive in the Northwest with static line and tandem jumps from this skydiving dropzone in Lancashire! These experiences will see you exiting a plane at up to 15000ft - one of the biggest thrills you can buy!
If you've ever dreamt of doing a skydive in the north west area, this is a superb venue set in the Lancashire countryside near Lancaster. Under the same management since 1964, it is one of the longest established skydiving training centres in not just Lancashire and the northwest, but the whole of the UK.
Located around 10 minutes from J33 of the M6 motorway, this skydive centre is very accessible from all over the north west of England. And what's more, the airfield at Cockerham is not far from the sea, so imagine the amazing views of the north western coastline as you make your ascent in the skydiving plane...then again, you might just be more interested in concentrating on what you're about to do...namely jumping out of the thing!
We have two types of skydiving available at this Lancashire venue. Static Line jumps take place from around 3,500ft, whilst tandems will go from altitudes of up to 15000ft. On the ground pre-training for tandem sky dives (where you are attached to your instructor) will take around 20 minutes and is normally carried out in the morning with the jump following soon after, whilst the training for static jumps takes around six hours, with your skydive normally taking place in the early evening.
This, one of the busiest drop zones in the northwest, uses a Cessna Grand Caravan Black Hawk 208b to transport budding skydivers up to 15000ft in just 12 minutes. These super robust planes with full avionics and a fast rate of climb when fully loaded means you won't be hanging around for long when it comes to the build up to exiting the plane.
Our skydive Northwest venue boasts excellent facilities, along with top notch training from fully BPA (British Parachute Association) qualified skydivers with hundreds of jumps under their wings. Whether you decide to go solo on a static line experience or fancy the full on freefall action of a tandem skydive, this long-established skydiving establishment in the heart of Lancashire has got to be the place to jump from! Alternative parachute clubs
are available throughout the country.
