What Can I Expect

Ready, set, go skydive Shropshire! This drop zone at Tilstock Airfield in Shropshire is well-placed for beginner skydivers from all over the West Midlands, Wales and Liverpool areas and with top notch tuition and efficient organisation, it’s all systems go for your very first skydiving experience.

Tilstock Airfield is just outside Whitchurch in Shropshire. Amazingly, parachuting has been part of everyday life here at this ex-RAF base since 1964. Back then it was more of a club for experienced jumpers, but these days hundreds of us come every year from miles around to take our first taste of free falling through the air.

With so many newbies to the world of skydiving around, the atmosphere on these jump days could be quite tense, but that’s what makes this Shropshire-based crew so good at their jobs. Be it a calming hand on your shoulder, some humorous quips, reassuring chatter or silence, they’ll do whatever it takes to get you calm and confident ready to jump. Just picture yourself edging towards that open aeroplane door, about to take the biggest jump of your life…

There is a variety of ways to get your sky-high thrills here in Shropshire, with this school offering tandem, static line and accelerated freefall (AFF) experiences. Which one you choose depends on what you’re looking for in your jump - is it the pure and simple surreal thrill of falling freely in the air, or would you like more of an insight into what training to become a skydiver entails on the two day static line and AFF courses?

The choice is up to you, but in every case you can be rest assured that your instructors will be friendly, encouraging and with you right up to the moment you’ve landed with that huge smile on your face. And of course, all the Shropshire team are British Parachute Association club instructors who love nothing more than accompanying a newbie parachutist in their quest for the ultimate rush.

Recounting what it feels like to have the strength and loudness of the wind rushing past you as you fall at 120mph, or describing the amazing view of the patchwork of fields you get after your canopy has opened and you are floating back down to earth isn’t easy and as most first time skydivers can only utter ‘That was amazing’ or ‘I want to do it again’, we think you should be brave and book yourself a skydive in Shropshire!
