To begin with I've never been in a plane. I have now and jumped out. Me and my daughter did it on the 28/09/2015. The staff were calming and very competent. Don't just look - do it. Thanks guys see you next year. Got to do it again.

My son and myself did the tandem skydive Aug 2nd. We were both a little apprehensive but there was no need Rich was very calming. The jump was an absolutely amazing experience, and I want to do another. Thank you Rich and the team for making us feel at ease.

Did my first skydive on 6th Oct 2012. Many thanks to Geoff for organising things, my instructor (Andy) and the camerman (Tibi) and everyone else involved - they were brilliant and put my mind at ease. It was a beautifully clear morning and the views were incredible. Just before exiting the plane I was terrified but once out, it was amazing! Loved every minute. If you are thinking of doing a skydive, do give it a go. I had a DVD done and have watched it so many times. Great stuff - thanks Tibi. A truely unforgettable experience doing a skydive. Loved it :-)

Did my first tandem skydive on Sunday 21st - 40th birthday present. What a fantastic experience. The staff were absolutely brilliant and put you fully at ease. The exhilaration of freefall was amazing and the peace and tranquility when the parachute opens just has to be experienced. This was something I had always wanted to do and was better than I could ever have imagined. Can't wait to do another one - maybe for charity next time.

WOW!! I did my 1st Tandem Parachute jump today with instructor Andy. An amazing experience and highly recommended. The instructors were great fun. I was so excited, so that was an added bonus. I have achieved something I have wanted to do for a long time and raised money for the Lennox Children's Cancer Fund too, so if you are thinking about doing it....just go for it and enjoy the experience from a very happy Kerry :)))) Thanks Andy and thanks to the Cameraman too. xx

I am hoping to do my 1st tandem on Sunday 21st August 2011 weather permitting. I am so excited. I am doing this for my early 40th birthday present to myself (Nov) and thought while I am up there, I may as well do it for charity. I am jumping for Lennox Childrens Cancer Fund. I will let you know how I get on :)) X

Hi Myself and my partner Darren jumped on Sat 18th and had the most amazing day. It was my 1st jump and was completely blown away by the whole experience. All your staff helped put my nerves at ease and relax me for what was the experience of a life time! We are already thinking of booking another jump with you. My dvd and photos were better than anything I could have expected, the quality is superb. On the day everything goes so quickly and literally 'flies' by, but having the dvd and photos brings it all back and I can share it now with others. I just keep watching it over and over! Please give a huge thanks to Geoff, Gavin and Jason for making it just the most awesome day ever! Great memories, Sharmaine & Darren xxx

Thanks Geoff for the wonderful skydive experience last week. I never dreamt it would be so fantastic! I was obviously a bit nervous as you could tell, but you put me at ease and helped me achieve a lifetime ambition. Thank you so much!

I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing day on Sunday 20 September. This was my third parachute jump and the absolute best!!! Thank you especially to Tim, my instructor for making me feel at ease, as despite doing it before, I was still a bit nervous! I will certainly do it again. Thank you!!!

I received my movie + stills today and it looks great, I would recommend to anyone to take the option, it's worth the extra money! I must say I'm very happy with my first ever skydive. I was very impressed by the organisation as it was such a busy day, the way everybody was very pro but relaxed and enthusiastic at the same time. Despite the long wait, my total lack of fear (I knew I was in safe hands!) which worried me as I thought I would be more excited if I was a bit nervous, feeling sick for the next hour after landing waiting for my ears to pop, I CAN'T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN very soon! Geoff was very gentle and took the best care of me, thanks to him and Paul Newton and everyone else involved, for such an amazing day!

Jumped yesterday, WOW what a fantastic experience, loved every minute of it. Weather was perfect, could see for miles, not a cloud in the sky. I am still on a high today would recommend a tandem jump to anyone. Thanks to Geoff, what a great teacher, also to Cameraman Barry, can't wait to see the DVD and stills. Thanks to everyone at Old Buckenham hope to do it again soon! :)

WOW! I managed to complete my jump yesterday after initally being worried about the weather . . . I was dreading not being able to do it! Had an amazing day all round. Geoff had a calming effect and made me feel at ease all the way through, and apart from landing in a field outside the airfield due to the wind, all went well!! Would highly recommend the DVD as once you land it all feels like a bit of a blur, and I can't wait to be able to watch it all back. Gavin seemed to be doing a really good job and was there filming me whenever I looked round, especially upon landing and when we came across some friendly cows on our trek back to the airfield! Facilities for supporters are really good, and all my family (including babies) were well catered for. I would recommend the experience to anyone, and there's nothing to be afraid of, just enjoy it as it's all over too soon!!

I'm doing my jump on Sunday 17th May and after reading all your comments I can't wait! I'm having a DVD done and hope I have Geoff as my instructor. I'm jumping jointly to celebrate my 30th birthday and to raise funds for the Grundisburgh Ward at Ipswich Hospital who cared for my late Grandad during his final weeks. Bring it on!!! :-)

WOW Done my skydive yesterday, was just the greatest thing I have ever done so far. I jumped for charity and really want to get up there and go again! I was so nervous the day before, but once in the plane strapped securely to Geoff, I wasn't worried one little bit! I loved it! ^_^ if you're thinking of doing one, go for it! xxx

Looking to jump, this site has been really informative and I think I will take the plunge after my exams in June with my friend. It should be really great fun and I am looking forward to it - I am going to do it as part as a charity jump so any fundraising tips welcome!!!!!
