Making your day run smoothly

At GoSkydive, customers from South West London and across the UK are taken through a customer journey that cannot be matched by any other skydiving centre in the UK.

We are the only centre that specializes in tandem skydive parachute jumps for first time skydivers. But what does that mean? It means that we only do tandem skydives – you won’t be competing for time and space with sports jumpers – the whole day is built around you and other first-time skydivers. We’ll consider your travel time and try and get you booked in later in the day, we’ll keep you updated with weather reports to, where possible, avoid unnecessary delays. There will be a briefing within 30 minutes of your arrival, you’ll receive full training in a simulated environment and there will be a whole team of people on hand to support you at all times.

The view to South West London

The view from the skydive in Salisbury to South West London is visible on clear days. That said, the jump is a good 80 miles away from South West London, so due to the curvature of the earth, it’s not easy to make out London landmarks that far in the distance. The Surrey Hills can be seen to the south of the capital, and the Chiltern hills border London to the north. If you squint really hard, you can just about see the arch of Wembley Stadium!

A tandem skydiving experience is the safest and least stressful form of Skydiving for the first timer. You are secured to a highly qualified tandem instructor who will control the freefall, deploy the parachute and bring you into land.

Any queries just give one of the team a call and we can talk through everything with you.

There are very few limitations to participation in a tandem skydive. You can find out more about the pre-jump criteria here.
