So much fun solo skydiving. After doing Tandem, now doing AFF Course with an excellent set of instructors - Dan and co - who make sure you are well trained and ready for each stage. Beautiful view of Hunter whilst parachuting. Incredible experience.

What a fantastic day. At the weekend I did a tandem skydive. Might I say I am not the most agile 70yr old Senior. Rob and the team were great. He is professional, yet caring, personable and 100% safety focussed. Thank you for giving me such an exhilarating experience 😘

Fantastic experience for my granddaughter enjoying her first jump (tandem). Everyone so friendly and accommodating. Nerves dissipated with the professional attention, family of spectators well informed of process and able to fully enjoy her descent to a smooth landing. Well done everyone!
