From Our Editors

Located at Peterlee Parachute Centre, the Skydive Academy benefits from the use of unrestricted Air Space flying planes and a site where parachuting is the number one priority. The Academy has been taking customers to dizzying heights seven days a week since 1987, and offers solo parachute courses alongside tandem skydives from a choice of altitude. Accelerated Freefall, or AFF courses are accelerated learning courses made up of eight one-to-one skydiving jumps, and designed for the average person who wants a more comprehensive experience. Their Shotton Colliery site features a canteen and licensed bar and free overnight camping, bunk beds and caravan spots are available by arrangement.

I wouldn't recommend buying a groupon for this company if you don't live in the area, you will have to re-schedule 3+ times without priority each time and if you can't then jump due to medical reasons they will charge you £70 not stated in T&C's.

Only recommendation would be to ensure that those on a planned day that have to rearrange have priority on the re-book. We were 3rd to go but when we returened to the hanger post cancelleed jump, those behind us booked the next available slot on another jump day - this meant we had to wait 3 weeks to redo the day rathwer than just 2, this was anooying and defeated the point of ariving early to get in the queue.
