Bridlington, East Yorkshire
Located in the beautiful East Yorkshire countryside at East Leys Farm in Bridlington, Skydive GB is home to Yorkshire’s only skydiving centre.
Skydivers can test their nerves as they freefall from 10,000 feet, and take in the stunning views of the east Yorkshire coastline. Experts are on hand to give you a short training session to ensure you fall safely; you are then fitted with the necessary kit, and get ready to board the aircraft and jump.
The plane climbs to around 10,000ft in about 20 minutes and after jumping out, you will find yourself falling 5,000ft in 30 seconds – but don’t worry, the instructor is with you at all times to open the main parachute.
Afterwards, several minutes can be enjoyed floating back to the ground taking in the scenery from above. All instructors are highly trained and qualified by the British Parachute Association to ensure you have the safest possible dive.
Skydive GB also work with some great charities, perfect for those needing a bit of extra motivation before taking the jump.
It is often the case that you will be able to jump for free if you raise enough cash – what a great way to earn some pennies for a cause close to your heart!
For skydivers looking for the ultimate thrill and maximum adrenaline, a solo parachute jump can be experienced after the completion of a 6-hour intensive course.
The static line means that the parachute will automatically deploy, and you will have the security of having radio contact with the landing area. You also receive a certificate of completion, and there is an option to purchase a DVD of your jump as proof that you completed the exhilarating jump.
