We are delighted that we can begin skydiving operations again here at Netheravon for experienced, student and tandem skydivers.  At present we are only permitted to jump at weekends and access to the base will be done in a very controlled way with a limited number of jumpers permitted.  All 'A' licence skydivers (who have already been refreshed) and experienced jumpers with B licence upwards will need to use the FaceBook form which will be put on line at 9am each Monday. Please fill this in for the appropriate day.  Please choose one day at present so we can give everyone a chance.  You must commit to a five jump package and have read the COVID-19 details that we have put on our FB site.  We are limiting numbers on the DZ.

All A Licence students who need refreshes or jumps should contact the APA office on a Monday morning at 9am so that we can assess what you need and add to you the list for the following weekend.  Please call the APA office on 01980 628250 or 01980-670734

We have also begun jumping tandem skydivers (weekends only) who were booked in to jump during the COVID period and those wanting new bookings. Feel free to call us on 01980-670734 or email and we can reschedule your booking.

Everyone coming on site must have filled out the health questionnaire and we have placed a link below.  This is mandatory and no one will be permitted on the base without having filled this in.

We have some COVID restrictions in place which will affect those coming to jump:

  • Please note that if you are jumping tandem please do not bring more that two spectators with you (including children).  We need to know their names prior to your arrival so that we can add them to the list on the gate for access and temperature checks.
  • Please bring a face-mask with you
  • Please note that we have no cafe facilities in operation so feel free to bring your own food and drink with you.
  • Absolutely no dogs permitted on site

Our aim above all else is to keep you safe and ensure you have a good day.  If you need to contact us please either call or email on  All staff are presently working part-time so there may be a delay at some point in getting back to you.  Please bear with us and we look forward to getting you back up in the air.


The Army Parachute Association (APA) has charitable objectives aimed at promoting and supporting sports parachuting for military personnel, active and retired. Our Association welcomes civilian members and tandem students and benefits enormously from the skills and diversity that they bring.


We strive for excellence in everything we do and are committed to providing the highest level of training for all our members throughout their skydiving career.  For those wishing to learn to skydive for the first time, or to progress to a higher level, the APA can provide safe and exceptional training with an enviable track record.   

If you are coming for one of our amazing tandem skydives, please be prepared to make it an all-day event.  Whilst we endeavour to get you jumped within four hours, delays can occur.  Weather can have the biggest effect as well as unexpected delays, large groups wishing to jump together and camera uptake.  We have a huge spectator area, free WiFi and a great cafe in Dare's Diner which will keep you sustained whilst you wait.  We just want you to have the best experience and really enjoy your day!

The Army Parachute Association operates at Skydive Netheravon as a not-for-profit organisation continually reinvesting to improve the services and facilities for our members. 

  • “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."
