“I'm raving about it”

“A few gentle exercises before flight could possibly make life a little less painful the next day (I would accept it was my age (36) apart from the fact that my 12 year old daughter has the same aches in the same places!) Upper arms, base of back and fronts of thighs. A few more seats in the viewing area”

“From walking through the door, all of your colleagues were really friendly and helpful, particularly Sandra (reception) who we had cause to speak to on the telephone before booking. We were a party of 3 flyers aged 12, 13 and 36, and one adult who wasn't participating. Aaron was our instructor, and was excellent. He was really patient (my son proved to be quite challenged!) as well as understanding and appeared to be concerned about every one us, (I work in retail and appreciate that this is not an easy task) As well as demonstrating fantastic teaching skills, he managed to tailor the tutoring to each individual in such a short space of time. A huge, genuine thank you to everyone at Manchester for a fantastic day, and especially to Aaron. (We are still in awe at his demonstration) We would all love to come back!”

“I think the time spent in the tunnel should increase by another minute or two, as i think for £29.99 the time spent in the tunnel was to less, i then payed £11.00 to fly extra which i thought i would get 2 more turns atlest in the tunnel, or got a bit longer then the usual time i was already having in the tunnel with the instructor, but there was no difference, i went once and for the same amount of time. I was a little bit let down by that as i was not expecting that to happen, i was looking faward to somthing happning a tiny bit different atlest.”

“This has been the best EVER awesome expierence! This has been a life time expierence and i would love to do it again!! The instructor was great and all the staff were SO Friendly. I enjoyed every second of my time spent at Airkix and felt welcomed. Thankyou for all the Help and support.”

Many flyers say they would like more time or that it is just too short and we agree which is why we always recommend the Air-born as the basic introduction to Airkix. I'm sure that also very often the comments are about wanting more for the same money too and how true that is about most things in life! However, we know that flying is great value for money which is just one reason why skydivers use us so much.

The boss says…


In relation to a 'table in the back to practice positions', we do have what we call 'Creeper Boards'. These are specifically designed to lay on and practice your positons. They have wheels, that move around, and you may see skydivers practicing on them whilst here at Airkix. These creeper boards can be used in addition to the classroom practice bench which should have been offered to you too.

Guests who are returning flyers are more than welcome to practice on the creeper boards too (with our instruction) at any time. Please just mention it to your Instructor during the briefing session and maybe on your third visit here you may like to try them?”

Staffordshire
6 April 2014 at Manchester

The boss says…


Thank you for your suggestion regarding the earpieces. Unfortunately, due to the varying wind speeds we use (depending on size and build of the flyer) , to achieve a volume where everyone could hear instructions clearly would be impossible.

Low wind speed flyers would find the instructions too loud and vice versa in relation to higher wind speed flyers.

From personal experience whilst skydiving, "in- freefall" microphones and earpieces simply dont work. (Thanks again for the suggestion though). ”

Many flyers say they would like more time or that it is just too short and we agree which is why we always recommend the Air-born as the basic introduction to Airkix. I'm sure that also very often the comments are about wanting more for the same money too and how true that is about most things in life! However, we know that flying is great value for money which is just one reason why skydivers use us so much.

“Only one very small thing I can think of is that no one mentioned about getting a log book until my last session, have been to airkix around 5 or 6 times, so would have been nice to record things I need to work on next time straight away.”

“Have now spent around 40 minutes total time at Basingstoke, and cannot fault anything. Last 20 minutes of tunnel time have been spent with Zac, by my request, I plan my visits for days he's working. I definitely find it helps staying with one instructor and managed to start back flying on the last visit. He has been brilliant, very easy to understand in the tunnel and great fun to fly with. I always buy more tunnel time and after recommending it to friends, 2 have come to give it a go and loved it.”

In relation to the Bar, we are having a complete re-fit of the first floor area in order to provide a Cafe/Bar facility for our guests. This will be run by an outsourced professional operator who currently have two Italian restaurants in the city centre of Manchester. We are super excited about this and we can't wait for all our guests to have the opportunity to sample their delights in late April early May.

The children and parents came away with a smile on their face and a wonderful memorable experience. It was worth every penny. Thank you”

Many of our flyers ask for more flying for less money and I'm sure we would like that in most things we buy. Unfortunately our machine does cost well over £4 million to build and a lot to run but it's still the cheapest and most efficient way to skydive which is why so many skydivers train in the tunnel.
