Test your nerve with a tandem skydive

Join us on our Sky Saturday in May 2019 where Team CHSW will take to the skies above Honiton and jump to raise smiles for families and children with life limiting illnesses.

Imagine the adrenaline and thrill of jumping out of a plane at up to 15,000 feet high!  Now imagine the pride you feel after free falling at around 120mph and experiencing the serenity of gliding back down to earth!

A tandem is an easy and enjoyable way to experience the thrills of skydiving without having to learn how. The exhilarating freefall combined with the peace and tranquillity of the parachute ride, makes tandem skydiving a unique and eye-opening way to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West.

Our exclusive time slots are

What is a tandem skydive?

A tandem skydive is an easy and enjoyable way to experience the thrills of skydiving. The exhilarating freefall combined with the peace and tranquillity of the parachute ride makes Tandem Skydiving a unique experience you will never forget.

After your safety briefing with an Experienced Instructor who will teach you everything you need to know, you will then be ready to take to the skies. On your pre-boarding call you will meet your Instructor who will prepare you for your skydive; fitting your jumpsuit, head gear, goggles (suitable for contact lenses/glasses), gloves and harness.

Once aboard our aircraft you will be securely harnessed to your instructor as you ride up to your chosen altitude. Our aircraft take approximately 10 minutes to climb to 15,000ft, giving time to take in views including the South and North Devon coastlines, Cornwall, Somerset, Dorset and the Bristol Channel to South Wales. Many people say we are one of the most scenic drop zones in the country!

Once at altitude, you will get the green light for ‘GO!’ and you will experience the most exhilarating, adrenaline fuelled moment of your life as you and your instructor edge towards the door and launch into the sky. During freefall you will experience speeds of approximately 120mph. Feel the air on your face for up to a full minute, falling around 2 miles!! Enjoy the unparalleled freedom of this unforgettable sport.

As the canopy opens, you will become aware of the sudden tranquility as your speed dramatically decreases. This allows you to talk with your instructor, take in the expansive scenery during the 5 minute approximate parachute ride and of course, have a safe landing. Help your instructor steer the parachute around the sky before gliding back to the airfield.
