What We Do

Welcome to Skydiving!


The adrenaline rush starts here....


We run RAPS (Ram Air Progression System) and AFF (Accelerated Freefall) courses throughout the year. Both of these courses enable you to eventually skydive solo anywhere in the world. 


RAPS starts off with static line jumps so don't fear - your parachute will open automatically for you. Once you have got your body position right and have done some 'practice pulls' (after around 6-10 jumps) you will move on to pull your own parachute - this is where the real thrill begins! 


AFF starts at 15,000ft.... Your first jump will be with 2 instructors holding onto you and involves skills and drills in the sky. You move through 8 different levels within AFF and allows you to skydive solo after only 8 jumps. 


We run RAPS and AFF courses throughout the year depending on interest levels. Keep an eye out for training dates on our Facebook page, or message us for details of the next course. We share our courses with other universities so there's likely to be one coming up!  

Don't forget to come meet us at Sports Fair on the 3rd of October, we'll get you jumping out of planes in no time!
