Everything You Wanted To Ask
Black Knights – Your questions answered…
Skydiving is an all day event. Due to weather conditions and how busy we are on the day, we can not predict an accurate time for your jump. You must expect to spend the whole day with us to complete your jump. You should expect to stay with us for a minimum of 3 – 4 hours, however skydiving can be an all day event, as it is weather dependant. Check the forecast over our Drop Zone using our handy Dropzone Weather Checker.
Comfortable casual/sports clothing is advised with pumps/training type shoes that can be laced up securely. Please no boots.
Yes you can. The cost for video and stills is £120. You get your own personal camera man to video your experience and give you anything from 80 to 120 high quality images. You also get to leave with it on the day just half an hour after you land.
If your jump is cancelled, you will be asked to rearrange the jump as soon as possible. There are no refunds.
If you need to cancel your booking completely, the skydives are all non-refundable so there is no refund available for monies payed, this includes for your skydive and any photography or video packages purchased.
Yes you can but please be aware that this could be an all day event and spectators could get bored very quickly. Please make them aware of this. If you bring small children, there is not a lot for them to do and can become restless very quickly, if you are waiting a long time to jump.
Yes there is, serving hot and cold snacks all day Friday to Sunday and a large picnic area.
Yes, absolutely! There is a charge of only £150 to do a second jump on the day, or if you pay a £50 deposit, you can come back on another day of your choice. *Your reduced priced jump will be an 11,000 skydive and must be completed within 3 months of your initial jump date.
Right on the doorstep is Patty’s Barn. A lovely set of holiday cottages that can sleep 1 to 8 people. Just give Margaret a call on 01524 751825. Also just down the road is The Mill. A very picturesque hotel with a great restaurant and fabulous rooms. Tel: 01524 752852
We have several arrival times which are allocated upon booking. Please be aware though, your arrival time is not your jump time and are allocated on first booked first served basis.
You will receive a minimum of 20 mins training before your jump from one of the Tandem Instructors.
From April 2016 two British Skydiving Tandem Student Parachutist medical form 115 A and B have now replaced the previous form 115 BPA medical form. The form 115A is for those Tandem Parachutist who are able to self declare; Form 115B Student Tandem Parachutist Request For Medical Advice is for those Tandem Parachutist who do not meet the requirements on Form 115A.
The requirement to have the Form 115 completed by your Doctor if aged 40+ has now been removed.
Anyone over the age of 16 can do a tandem jump.
Alcohol is *strictly forbidden* during operational hours for jumpers and spectators. Anyone jumping that smells of alcohol will NOT be able to jump and no refund will be given. Anyone seen with alcohol will be asked to leave the premises.
You can of course change your jump date. If you give us 14 days or more notice from the date of your jump then it’s free to change the date. If you give us less than 14 days notice from your jump date, then there is a rebooking fee of £50 to do so.
Unfortunately, due to insurance and safety, dogs are not allowed on the drop zone. The only exception is a guide dog.
