What Can I Expect

Go skydiving at Beccles Airfield and be one of over 10,000 budding skydivers who jump from this centre on the Norfolk/Suffolk border every single year!

This school, based at this former USAF airfield, makes the most of the fact that there are no altitude limits, no air traffic control restrictions and no other aviation traffic from the drop zone area. And all that, of course, makes it the perfect skydiving location.

The team here is amazing. Owners Jason Thompson and Grant Richards have done many thousands of jumps between them and are both ex military parachutists. The aim of the sky diving game here is to be professional, but approachable and friendly at the same time, putting you at ease throughout your course - especially when (for most of you) it's your first foray into that freefall feeling.

So you've decided you want to go skydiving. The quickest route is to opt for tandem skydiving, as there is a just short ground training session - and then you're off, strapped into a harness with your instructor attached. 

You will be exiting the plane from a whopping 13,000ft above the ground. Now that's high! You'll experience freefalling before the parachute is opened and then your canopy ride back down to the drop zone gives you around six minutes of calm after the rush.

And when you land you'll feel amazing. The sensation of freefalling is pretty indescribable. And in fact, many tandemers can barely speak at first. But when you do gather your thoughts, you're bound to have a huge grin on your face, as you thank your instructor and ask when you can go up and do it all over again in those clear Suffolk skies!  You're sure to have an incredible skydiving experience out of Beccles.
