Tandem Skydive

A tandem skydive is the best way to experience a freefall. During this, you will be strapped to one of our fully qualified instructors, reaching a speed of approximately 120mph before your parachute is deployed. Our tandem jumps range from 7,000ft right up to 15,000ft – the highest in the UK.

Anyone over the age of 16 can take part in this fantastic experience of a lifetime. Furthermore, our drop zone operates all year round. All our instructors are fully trained and certified by British Skydiving, so you have complete peace of mind.

Our drop zone has been in operation for over 50 years.

Static Line Courses

At Black Knights Parachute Centre, we also offer static line parachute training. A traditional method of skydive training, static line parachuting involves the student jumper leaving the aircraft at 3,500ft. Your parachute which is attached to the aircraft is deployed by a ‘static line’. As you fall away from the aircraft, the line pulls the parachute out.

You only require 6-8 hours before taking to the skies. Our training covers aircraft drills, parachute equipment, controlling and landing your canopy and emergency procedures. If you’re interested, you can easily book online.
