About skydives 

A tandem skydive is the easiest and most popular of all skydives. It requires just 30 minutes of training before you then jump strapped to your instructor. Your BPA (British Parachute Association) qualified tandem instructor will do all of the hard work for you, allowing you to enjoy the exhilarating feeling of flying through the clouds.  

There are a number of skydive locations available across the UK.
