This skydiving gift is based at the nearest full-time centre to the UK capital, conveniently allowing for an exhilarating skydive near London.
You could be taken as high as 13,000 feet (depending on the weather), before you are strapped to the front of an instructor and cast under the control of gravity. Hitting speeds as high as 120mph, you’ll smash through 1,000 feet every 5 seconds, before your instructor deploys the parachute at 5,000 feet. You will control the parachute together, and settle to the ground around 4 minutes later.
Hinton Airfield is located near Brackley on the Oxfordshire / Northamptonshire border, making it the closest full-time centre for skydiving near London, Birmingham, Northampton, Milton Keynes and the Midlands.
Whether you’re buying this for yourself or buying a skydiving gift for somebody else, this is the place to go for skydiving in the UK and for skydiving near London.
