Skydiving is on so many people's bucket lists - and there's a good reason! Soaring through the air, free as a bird, is absolutely exhilarating. Skydiving London experiences are ideal for anniversaries, birthdays, and special events, and are also fun challenges to set yourself. On a practical level, going skydiving is also good for getting rid of a fear of heights: many people opt to do a skydive for this reason, too. There are lots of options for skydiving in the nation's capital, from military experiences to brightly coloured parachute rides.
If you are thinking of Skydiving in London, then Skydive London is a great place to go to because you can choose the type of skydive that you do. Perhaps you would like to do a tandem skydive, for instance, strapped to the body of an instructor? Or maybe you would like to do a whole course of lessons in freefall technique? Maybe what matters most to you is getting an amazing photo of yourself in the air, which you can later show off to friends and family? All this and more is available at places like Skydive London.
As well as offering similar options to Skydive London (such as tandem diving), the London Parachute School, also offers you the chance to enjoy indoor skydiving in a unique environment that simulates the experience of being high up in the air. Indoor skydiving is perfect for practicing and is also great for people who feel a little afraid of jumping out of a plane right away. But, if you start out with an indoor skydive, make sure to at least think of doing a real skydive over London: the views that you will experience over the capital will be unrivaled. That said, there are plenty of options in London, so make sure to do your homework and choose the best option for you.
It is a good idea to talk to your instructor about what you want from the skydive, and to ask any questions that you have. They will then explain the dive to you and everything that you need to do and know. When choosing a place to go skydiving, make sure to look out for British Parachute Association approved skydive instructors and schools. The British Parachute Association (or BPA) is the main body in the UK for training and checking skydive instructors, so you will know that you are in safe hands if your instructor is BPA approved. The cost of skydiving varies, depending on the type of dive you are doing and sometimes on whether you want optional extras such as photos. This is also something that you can discuss individually with your skydive instructor before you make a booking. So go on, challenge yourself to a skydive over London: it will be the experience of a lifetime.
