I decided to do a tandem skydive for my 30th birthday in aid of Macmillan cancer research. It was an amazing experience with excellent staff!!! Raised over £1000 And couldn't be happier with the experience.

I completed my first tandem jump about half an hour ago, what an experience!! Dave was my instructor and Sam filmed me, both made the experience fantastic. Do the extra 5000 ft is my advice, absolutely superb centre, I can't recommend it enough!!!
