Looking for the experience of a lifetime? You are in the right place. Ask Me About Skydiving shows you all the best options available for skydiving experiences in the UK. If you want to become a skydiver with a solo course, make a tandem skydive, or just fly in a wind tunnel, we explain all the possibilities that you have and the best places to do it in the UK.
Once you have run through all the options available to skydive in the UK, use our easy-to-book system. You will only need to grab your deposit upfront and the rest will be covered on the day of the jump. We also have “gift voucher” options to make your present extra sexy.
The only thing left to do is to relax and get ready to enjoy the greatest life experience on the planet. We will guide you through the whole activity and make sure everything goes smooth as silk so you have the most fun you’ve ever had in your life. What are you waiting for?
You want to jump out of an aeroplane. Of course you do. Or you wouldn’t be here. You have three options to choose from: Tandem Skydiving, Solo Skydiving or Indoor Skydiving. Which will be your first skydiving experience? Learn more about them below.
Learn to skydive. Get your licence. From as little as 18 jumps you can be a qualified skydiver. With your solo skydiving licence you can rock up to any airfield in the world, hire a parachute and jump out. It’s the coolest thing in the world. Your very first skydiving experience will be undertaken whilst wearing your own parachute. You get six hours of tuition the day before and you’ll have two instructors with you in freefall to make sure things go smoothly. About 1300 people did this in the UK last year.
Or, if you’re not so confident in your own abilities, that’s cool too. 63,000 in 2016 made a tandem skydive. You wear a harness and your instructor wears a double sized parachute, suitable for two people. You’re clipped in securely. And all you have to do is relax and smile. And talk about it for weeks afterwards once you’ve landed.
And if planes aren’t your thing, or you want to supercharge your freefall skills learning, then indoor skydiving is for you. In a skydiving experience you’ll be rushing through the air at 120mph. With indoor skydiving we jump into a vertical wind tunnel and a huge fan will blast air past you at 120mph. The results are the same. It’s just like freefall. But without the parachute. Or the view.
I just want to thank you for helping me in my path to make one of my most desired dreams come true. Thank you for being such a great instructor and for your patience with me. Jumping from a plane and skydive has been even more awesome than I expected. I’m loving every bit of it. Yeah man!

Brian is an outstanding coach. He has been skydiving for 13 years so the explanation is done basing on his own experience. He recognises that stress and mistakes are normal and he helps to deal with everything while you are on the ground so when you are in the skies you feel 100% sure that you are prepared to perform your task smoothly. Brian goes the extra mile and helps you to socialise at the dropzone. I am glad that I got to be his student.

Boom…! Smashed my AFF solo skydiving course and now I’ve got my “A” licence. I couldn’t have done so well without the patience and knowledge of my awesome instructors. So I would like to say a massive thank you to Ally, Chris and Brian. Drinks will be on me when I see you at the Dropzone. Also, thank you to the whole team at Langar. Fantastic support and you couldn’t ask for a nicer bunch of people. Blue Skies!
