Can I Do It?
The minimum age is 16, under 18 you must have parental consent. There is no upper age limit for Tandem Skydives.
The maximum weight is 15 stone and you must be reasonably fit for your weight.
Can I bring friends?
Your friends and family are welcome, they can watch your skydive and be there to congratulate you when you land.
A camping and picnic area, café and toilets including a disabled toilet are available for everybody.
Is it Safe?
There is no such thing as a totally safe skydive. The risk may be fairly low but as with any action sport there is always some risk.
Having said that, thanks to very strict safety standards enforced by the British Parachute Association, skydiving fatalities for Tandem skydivers in this country are exceptionally rare. In the last 20 years and some 428,000 Tandem skydives, there has been only one in the whole of the UK.
All activities at Skydive Northwest are regulated by the British Parachute Association . All Tandem Skydive instructors are trained and certified by the British Parachute Association and have already done at least 1000 skydives before becoming your Tandem instructor.
So, yes, it’s as safe as it can be.
Skydive Northwest is a long established Skydive centre and we have been throwing people out of aeroplanes now for over 40 years.
Our staff are professional and friendly and our aeroplane is modern, fast and specifically made for Skydiving.
Open weekends and bank holidays we have spectacular views across the Lake District, Lake Windermere and Morecambe bay, making Skydive North West one of the most picturesque skydive centres IN THE WORLD.
