What does ‘extreme’ mean?  Jumping out of a perfectly serviceable aircraft could well be classed as extreme!  But what if you were trained to skydive by some of the best military instructors in the country and jumped on the largest drop zone in Europe?

The Army Parachute Association here at Netheravon is not only the home of the fantastic Red Devils, but is renowned for training skydivers from 16 to 95!  Whether it’s a tandem jump for fun, an Accelerated Freefall or Static Line course, you will be trained to jump by the very best. 

For those who have done over 200 jumps there is a chance to start a new adventure, that of Wingsuiting!  Netheravon have just been privileged to host the first World Cup and has World champions within its ranks.

If skydiving is something you have thought about but never taken more seriously, then now is the time.  The thrill and anticipation of that first jump, right through to the exhilaration and sense of adventure for those who eventually take up the extreme sport of Wingsuiting, this sport has it all. 

Call us for information on Tandem jumping and all our skydiving courses – taking up skydiving seriously means getting it right and this is exactly where you need to start at Netheravon. 

 

  • “I had a truly awesome experience yesterday, in every way.  I was absolutely terrified but felt totally invincible afterwards and I even fell in love with your cameraman, Mike!  Cam was lovely too and if I decide to do it again it would have to be with him.  It was all very professional, from start to finish. They were a great bunch and I will recommend this to anyone and everyone.  I jumped for the MS Trust and secured £723 in sponsorship so far with promises of more to come.  It is great to feel alive again.”

  • "First charity tandem skydive done here last Saturday. Despite being extremely scared, the instructors made me feel completely at ease and in safe hands. Highly recommend anyone doing a jump, to do it here. Would definitely consider doing another skydive off the back of this experience despite my fear of heights and flying. Brilliant day and life experience. Thank you."
