; Skydiving - tandem parachuting - Northampton UK - gift vouchers - charity skydiving


Owned and operated by professional skydivers Mike Browne and Geoff Wood, Hinton Skydiving Centre is The Closest Full Time Skydiving Centre to London, Birmingham, Northampton, Banbury, Brackley,Milton Keynes and the Midlands with fast links from the M1, M5, M6 and M40 Motorways.

The "Drop Zone" is located at Hinton Airfield which is on the Northamptonshire / Oxfordshire border and is probably the friendliest and most social skydiving club in the UK. There is always something going on from competitions, corporate events and charity fun-days, to progression courses and seminars for club members.

Tandem skydiving is designed for those people who wish to try Skydiving for the first time, without the need for a time consuming course. Available from Tuesday to Sunday either for a morning or an afternoon report time, Tandem skydivers should normally budget a half day from start to finish. All Tandem skydivers will receive a personalised certificate upon completion.

One step further, the AFF Level1 is for you. This course requires more commitment as you will need to budget two days in order to achieve your aim. The first day is spent in the classroom learning about all aspects of freefall and canopy control through a series of lectures and practical lessons. The second day you will be taking to the skies at altitudes up to 13,000 feet and feeling the rush of adrenaline as you take your first "leap of faith" into the skies above. Courses run every Friday throughout the year and Tuesdays during the summer months. Once trained, students can jump every day from Tuesday to Sunday. All students will receive a personalised certificate and a log record of their jump on completion.

Convinced you want to become a Skydiver? Ready to take that leap and commit to an adrenaline infused lifestyle, fuelled by throwing yourself from an aircraft at heights in excess of two and a half miles? OK but next time you are sat in the office, not concentrating on work, looking out of the window and wishing you were at the "Drop Zone"..... Don't say we didn't warn you!

Hinton Skydiving Centre is open from Tuesday to Sunday, fifty weeks a year for all types of jumping and also on Bank Holiday Mondays. Opening times are from 9:00 am, Tuesday to Friday and from 8.00am on Saturday and Sunday.

Courses are run at the Centre in a relaxed training environment with a canteen facility on site offering hot and cold food and drinks.
