What Can I Expect

Skydive in Lancashire with these exhilarating tandem jumps from this skydiving dropzone in the North West of England. These experiences will see you exiting a plane at up to 11,000ft - one of the biggest thrills you can buy!

If you've ever dreamt of doing a skydive this venue set in the Lancaster countryside is a superb choice. Under the same management since 1964, it is one of the longest-established skydiving training centres in not just Lancashire, 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 picture 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 are offering tandem jumps at this Lancashire venue. 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.

This drop zone (one of the busiest in the northwest), uses a Cessna Grand Caravan Black Hawk 208b aircraft to transport budding skydivers up to 11,000ft in just 12 minutes. These are super robust planes with full avionics and a fast rate of climb even when fully loaded. That all means you won't be hanging around for long when it comes to the build up to exiting the plane and actually skydiving over lovely Lancs!

Our skydive Lancashire venue boasts excellent facilities, along with top notch training from fully BPA (British Parachute Association) qualified skydivers with hundreds of jumps under their wings. If you fancy the full-on free-fall action of a tandem skydive, this long-established skydiving establishment in the heart of Lancashire has got to be the place!
