On the 19th October, my 70th birthday, I skydived for St. Luke's Hospice where my husband spent his last weeks and received the best of care. I would never have thought of doing it otherwise but am so glad I did as it was the most amazing experience. My instructor was brilliant and made me feel very safe and to think that we chatted about how lovely the view was on the way down! Quite surreal. On top of that we raised £1,440 for St. Luke's - couldn't have hoped for a better birthday.
my 40th birthday skydive
I did the skydive on the 7th sept 2013, it was a present from my husband and kids for my 40th birthday, it was a totally amazing experience, i would like to thank everybody at the skydive centre for making it an exceptional day, i would especially like to thank jason my tandem expert who was really nice and gentle with a nervous lady,i would definately recommend this centre to anyone, i hopefully will do it again soon.
Dear Jason, Dawn and all @ UK Sky Dive,
just to say thanks again for such an amazing experience and a level of customer service that well surpassed all our expectations; still cannot believe how much you went out of your way to arrange accommodation and get us fed when we were completely exhausted and got us jumped despite tricky weather conditions, we had an amazing time thanks to all your help, and obviously the jump itself was phenomenal!!!
Will and have been recommending you to everyone we know (whether they want to hear it or not! :) ), cannot emphasise enough how much of a special and welcoming experience you and your team made this for us!!
We'll definitely be back (with more sleep next time..)
You guys rock!
(And if you ever come to London and need anything, you've got our details!)
All the best,
John & Vanessa
My Tandem Skydive
Can't wait to do it again!! Thanks to all the staff at skydive Uk for making the experience so great.

My wife surprised me for my 40th birthday, presenting me with a booking to do a tandem skydive the following day. Having not ever done anything like this ever before, my sleep that night was somewhat disturbed, as you can well imagine.
Well, what can I say? How about stupendously massively awesome, insanely intense and the hugest adrenaline rush ever.
The guys at Skydive UK were really friendly, professional and extremely good at allaying your fears with a good bit of banter. A big thanks to Ralf in particular who took me to 15,000ft and back again in one piece.
The freefall was absolutely mad, the noise, speed and sensation was just like nothing else. I`ve done white water kayaking, commando assault courses and caving, but nothing compares to the buzz of jumping out of an aeroplane and hurtling towards the ground at 120mph for over a minute. And then the beautiful calm after the chute is deployed is such a contrast to what went before.
I can`t recommend this experience enough and the guys at Skydive are brilliant. Fantastic pictures too.
A double thumbs-up from me.
Friggin` awesome!! :o)
I want to say a big `Thank you` to everybody at skydive uk ltd. for a wicked day. You made us all feel so welcome and so at ease. Brillant job done by all!!
I also want to say a special `Thank you` to Simon for sharing my experience with me and making my dive so friggin` awesome!! Definitely a day i`ll remember for the rest of my life.
Advice to anyone reading this - if you get the chance to do it - DO IT!! AMAZINGLY AWESOME!! :o)
These guys are the best.
This was my first tandem and I would have to say that the experience was amazing. I went for all the marbles and did the 15,000ft tandem with DVD and photos because I figured this was my first time and you can never get that experience back. These guys are great, all of them. From the time I checked in at reception to the time we landed everyone was professional. Professional but with a sense of humor. It was hard to get nervous with all of the great banter between the pros and jumpers. I suggest that if you are looking for some place to do your first jump in the UK then these are they people to do it with.
From start to finish this was simply sensational! I did a tandem, 15,000 feet skydive. The weather wasn`t great the day we jumped so there was a bit of waiting around but just as sunset was coming we spotted a hole in the clouds and off we went! I can`t recommend the experience highly enough. I felt safe thoughout and the guy I jumped with (Simon) did an epic job. I also massively recommend getting the photos and DVD. It`s a lot of money I know but soooo worth it! Big thanks from me to all at Skydive UK - I loved it!!
Was absolutely amazing, well worth it!
