For your additional entertainment – only available to those taking part in our skydiving courses and friends attending with them who have paid a £12 daily entry fee!
An unusual and thoroughly entertaining “hands on” experience learning how to fly hovercraft. Minimum age is 14.

These nippy single seat machines are easy to handle and can reach speeds of up to 30 mph!


The hovercraft operate each day we’re open (between the hours of 11am and 5pm) as and when staff are available – i.e. when they’re not skydiving or wind tunnelling.


All Tandem Skydiving and AFF Level 1 Skydiving Course customers can take part free of charge in the practice area. Once on the track however a charge of £10 per 15 minutes will apply.

Bookings can only be made by those present at the airfield on the day. If you wish to take part please add your name to the list held in reception immediately upon arrival. Names added after 10am will not normally be allowed to take part.

We always do our best to complete flights on the same day as jumps but please note this can never be guaranteed. The two events are also completely separate activities.


The hovercraft can operate in almost all weather conditions.


Old casual clothes such as jeans and trainers are ideal. Everything else is provided.
