Let’s see if you’ve got what it takes to do a Sibson Skydive! This drop zone is very well-known in the Peterborough area with jumpers and their canopies filling the skies for many days of the week during the main parachuting season. It’s an impressive sight but why watch from the ground when you could be up there doing it yourself?
It’s destination Sibson Airfield then for these skydiving experiences. We are offering both tandem jumps and the intensive Accelerated FreeFall (AFF) course here in Peterborough so whether it’s the quick sky-high thrill or the first steps on the way to be a qualified jumper you’re looking for it’s all up for grabs.
This highly respected sky diving centre has been operating for many years out of Sibson and what makes it unique is the height. Thanks to the unrestricted skies over Peterborough the club benefits from unlimited altitude. No wonder around 10 000 jumps are logged from the 250 or so club members each year…
So what’s it like doing a parachute jump? Well from the second you enter the Jumper’s Reception to sign in to the moment you touch down on Terra Firma after your free falling fun you will be extremely well looked after. The aim of the game here is safety first but keeping it fun and relaxed to put you at ease the whole time too.
And we have to say because of what you will be doing (i.e. jumping out of a plane) you will be relying on your instructor. This is why they are all BPA (British Parachute Association) Instructor rated here at Sibson and also why the comments about them afterwards include words like ‘legend’ and ‘awesome’. This is the ultimate bucket list experience after all so you need to be doing it in safe hands!
And indeed once you’ve lapped up those seconds of freefalling over the Peterborough countryside with the wind rushing at you you’ll feel like you’ve walked on the sky. As soon as you can actually talk again we can pretty much guarantee you’ll be uttering things like ‘best thing ever’ ‘epic’ and ‘where can I sign up to do it all again?’. And that dear potential parachuters is what skydiving at Sibson is all about.
