Course Overview

Having received top class instruction you will exit the aircraft from an altitude of up to 13,000 feet securely strapped to the front of your instructor, who will control the free fall element of your tandem skydiving experience, open the parachute for you at around 5,000 feet, and then steer your parachute safely back to the landing area for a controlled landing.   We use only the very best equipment and instruction methods, with a safety record second to none, and the course can be completed in just one day, weather permitting.


Here at the North London Skydiving Centre we pride ourselves on being the premier Tandem Skydive club in the UK with the emphasis on customer service and value for money.   We believe a Tandem Skydive should be more than just jumping out of a plane, it should be a magical experience from start to finish that you’ll remember for the rest of your life – even if you only want to do it once!      Customer satisfaction is therefore at the top of our agenda and if you haven’t already done so please check out our reviews on Trip Advisor, Facebook and Google+ to see for yourself.   We make thousands of Tandem Skydives each year (in excess of 80,000 to date) and benefit from perhaps some of the best UK weather conditions due to our easterly location.   We are also recognised by Sport England as a Significant Area for Sport.

Having made your first Tandem Skydive you’ll also be given the opportunity to go on and qualify as a solo skydiver yourself through our Tandem to Accelerated Freefall Qualification Course – which will allow you to jump with us as often as you want from up to 15,000 feet for just £18!

If you’re looking for fun and excitement then this is it!

All prices include instruction, equipment, flights (which are provided separately to participants by Skydive Chatteris Club Ltd at a cost of £96 each), £16.60 provisional membership of the British Parachute Association, and third party insurance for £5,000,000.

Our airfield planning permission allows us to fly from 9am to 8pm (or dark) on a daily basis and it’s always advisable to arrive early as we operate on a first come first served system.

  • Age, Weight & Health

    Age, Weight & Health

    The minimum age for Tandem Skydiving is 16, with parental consent required for those under 18 (see below).  There is no upper age limit for this course.

    The maximum weight limit for Tandem skydiving is strictly 16 stone (clothed with shoes). However, anyone over 15 stone (clothed with shoes) will be asked to pay an extra £10 to cover the additional work load for the instructor. Reasonable height to weight ratios and levels of fitness also apply – which please note are a little more stringent for women weighing over 13 stone.

    All participants are required to sign a tandem student parachutist medical declaration form on arrival. Anyone with a listed medical condition should first seek qualified medical advice and certification using BPA form 115B.

    Anyone under the age of 18 will require the same declaration form to be witnessed by a parent or guardian in addition to providing parental consent on a BPA membership form.


  • Weather


    We can jump in clear conditions with winds of 20 knots (23mph) or less.   You can view a “5 day colour coded weather forecast” by clicking here.  The calmest winds usually occurring at the start and end of each day.

    If for whatever reason the weather prevents your jump from taking place as planned you will be given a Tandem jump ticket which you can then use to re-book your jump in accordance with our agreed terms and conditions.

    As a rough guide, throughout the year, we jump on average 60% of the 260 days we open and complete about 5500 tandem jumps. On perfect weather days we jump around 10 tandems per hour and can sometimes have up to 85 tandems booked in per day.

    If you’re visiting the country, or are  limited for time, we also offer a residential course whereby for an additional fee you can stay at the airfield on a continuous basis for as long as it takes to get your jump completed – with the added bonus of a full refund if your jump hasn’t been completed within 3 operational days. If this is of interest please let us know. The total price is £295 per person – which includes accommodation and the jump fees.

    Anyone wishing to take part should also read the “tandem jump times and orders document” before booking.
