Skydiving over Wiltshire - the perfect way to tandem jump, static line or freefall above the very tranquil Ridgeway, which separates the southern Cotswolds from the West Country. These skydives offer a fun-filled adventure in Wiltshire, suitable for fans of the most extreme sports.
In a stunning setting among the foothills of this ancient Wiltshire countryside, this wild and wonderful winged activity centre, headed up by expert skydiving instructors Dan, Mad Mike and H, gives you the choice of tandem, Accelerated Freefall (AFF) or static line jumps. Skydiving has never been more accessible.
In a tandem dive, you get a 20-minute briefing before you’re fastened tight to your instructor for both the ascent in the plane and then that amazing ‘once in a lifetime’ rapid freefall descent. When the instructor finally opens the parachute, your headlong plunge turns into a gentle sweep of upward motion as the canopy floats you gracefully over the Wiltshire hills, to finally land back at base.
For the more adventurous, this skydiving centre also provides solo skydive opportunities offering AFF Level One courses and static line jumps. Both experiences count towards gaining your personal skydiving qualification.
The AFF Level One course gives you six to eight hours of skydive training before you attempt your first jump out of the plane as you gaze down on Redlands Airfield below you. Accompanying you will be two BPA (British Parachute Association) instructors, but it’s up to you to deploy your parachute and guide yourself back to earth!
For those who want autonomy but less pressure, consider a static line jump. This allows you to experience the blissfulness of being in control of your own skydive over Wiltshire without having to worry about opening your parachute – the static line does that for you. Ascending to just over 3,000ft, your parachute is deployed automatically when you leave the aircraft, so you skip the freefall but can still enjoy the sensation of directing your own descent to the landing field.
All three types of jump are available to book through our skydiving Wiltshire page and operate year round at weekends. So whether you’ve always wanted to throw yourself out of a plane, or fancy offering the skydive challenge to someone you love as a bit of a dare, this Wiltshire dropzone has the full range of skydiving choices for you.
