It takes just a few minutes to prepare and you’re off, gliding through the air in search of waves of lift with a qualified Tandem Flight Instructor. No previous experience is required.

What a wonderful experience, from the time of booking the event with Mias. He kept us updated on the days when the weather was not great and communicated constantly on the day when we eventually could jump. The day of the jump was absolutely awesome, Mias is a true professional and an excellent teacher, the take off was perfect and flight was majestic Would certainly recommend Mias and his team for the most awesome experience - Alexandra Johnson
