Where is the airfield?

There are over twenty British Parachute Association approved centres across the UK, please see map for more details. Once we have received your reservation form, we will do our best to place you at your nearest centre. If this is not possible, we will contact you to discuss the alternatives.

Are there any restrictions on age?

For both jumps the minimum age is 16 and you need to be under 15 stone.

What are the health restrictions?

The principal medical restrictions for all jumps are diabetes, epilepsy, fits, recurrent blackouts, heart or lung disease and some cases of asthma. You will be required to sign a medical form before your jump declaring your fitness to take part - this will be sent to you upon receipt of your reservation form but is also available on request. Those under the age of 18 will need the medical form signed by a parent or guardian; those aged 40 and over, or those with a medical condition, will need it signed by their doctor.

Pre-existing physical conditions will not necessarily prevent you from taking part but please do inform us of any physical conditions as this may affect the location of your jump; if you are in any doubt then please contact us for further information.

What about insurance?

You will automatically be covered for up to £2,000,000 third party insurance but this will not cover you for personal injury. Should you wish to take out cover for personal injury you should either arrange this through your own broker or you can contact us.
