“We had a totally brilliant experience. Our 5 year old daughter was a little scared and wasn't sure if she wanted to fly but Adam was amazing with her and she loved it even doing the high flyer twice. When she was asked if she wanted a 3rd go she jumped at the chance with a huge smile on her face. All the staff were extremely helpful and really friendly. Adam is an excellent instructor thank you so much for a fantastic morning, we ll be back.”

The Cafe (Salvis) is run by an outsourced operator. Generally, they are open from 9 am every day however I note your flight time was 9:30 am with a report time of 8:30 am.
I will mention this to them in order for them to open up a little earlier when we have earlier bookings. Many thanks.
We look forward to seeing you with your friends or for some coaching. Please let us know if we can assist in any way.”

“Well, I had my flights (for the first time) this morning and it's now about 4.00 and I'm still buzzing! It was utterly wonderful! I thought your advertising was a bit O.T.T at first by saying something like 'life will never be the same again/life changing....' and I hadn't built up any dramatic expectations - even though I was really excited and looking forward to the experience. But, I now think your advertising about nails it! I'm coming back - with others! I would also, whilst here, like to compliment you on your professionalism, friendliness, safety awareness and attention to detail. Thank you all so much - and especially Stuart, my instructor, who was so clear, always encouraging and made it such a fun experience. Thanks! Stephanie”

Walking into the wind tunnel before the wind started up to feel the mesh under my feet and to see what was above and below me was a really important confidence building exercise for me, I really appreciated that.”

“This was an excellent experience, very different to the skydive I did last year. Being in the wind tunnel and getting instructions while you fly gives you so much more control and opportunity to play about. And my instructor, Cameron, was great - really friendly and encouraging.

Right from the booking stage your staff were amazing and really supportive, entering into the spirit of my plan so enthusiastically. I had many flights booked throughout the day, and your reception staff were able to be very flexible with my time slots should I need more of a break in between certain flights. I was rather nervous and very much out of my comfort zone, but everyone put me at ease immediately with their friendliness, competence and supportive nature. Feedback and encouragement was brilliant.

“Anything to keep the positive, encouraging, really friendly atmosphere throughout the organisation.”

“Stuart, the coach was brilliant, I hadn't been in a tunnel for ages, but he was really encouraging and immediately not only identified flaws in my flying position but started to put them right. Tanya and Heidi on reception were very welcoming and excellent too. Thank you for a great experience and hope to see you again soon.”

“Kuba loved his instructor today and would love to have his next flight booked in with him. Are instructors schedules known in advance to book in with a specific one?”

The boss says…


Thank you for your enquiry regarding the Instructors schedule. We do know what each Instructor will be working for approx 2 weeks in advance. This however can change at late notice I'm afraid so we could not guarantee that Cez could be in Kuba's session.

At the time of booking though, please feel free to enquire on 0845 331 6549 and our Customer Service Team will advise of the days Cez is due to work. We can then request that if logistically possible on that day, Cez be scheduled into Kuba's session.”

“I'm raving about it”

“Since my son started on his skydiving career...I have been passionate about learning and experiencing as much as I can of the discipline. Last year for my 60th I did a "tandem" and he flew with me. This year for his birthday I joined him to discover the world of tunnel flying. Even though I had achieved the skydive experience I was still nervous. My instructor,Stuart,had all the qualities needed to put me at ease. It felt good to see his "thumbs up" signs as I attempted to follow his instructions. Suffice to say...I shall be back to give it another go. It was so good to watch the instructors demonstrating their skills. I tried a 10min taister session on the ski slope....oh dear!!!...say no more.”

“The only thing I could possibly comment would be clearer details on what exactly is required to show as proof of booking, only because it stated to bring everything yet only needed to show a few things, but this isn't a negative thing! just a suggestion.”

“I heard a few people comment that they struggled to see teh signals being offered them. Perhaps a radio mic communication would help people get the best of the short time they have for their flights.”

“It was awesome, the instructor (Cez) was cool and calm and gave me a clear idea of what I could aim to achieve in my session and then helped me achieve it. I didn't stop laughing the whole time I was in there and the added "All the way up" experience along with Cez's display of what you can do left me wanting more. I will certainly be back.”

Many of our flyers ask for flights 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.

“We had my 3 year old granddaughter with us and as the 5 of us were flying a young trainee kindly look after her so she could watch us and she was given a hat to wear. I didn't get his name and we did thank him on the day but we were impressed how accommodating your guys were and it was much appreciated. Two of our group already brought extra flights so we will be back.”
