Important Update

With the continuation of the Covid-19 Virus, following the guidelines set by the UK government we regrettably announce that we will suspend all our Tandem Air Experience flying until the 9th December.

Even though the risk involved is minimal due to the very nature of the sport being outside with plenty of space, small group sizes and limited contact, the safety of our clients is nonetheless paramount.

We will continue to monitor this and provide updates here on any changes in dates and advice from the UK government in relation to our activities.

We are still accepting new bookings and continue to offer our very flexible 2 year validity period which would commence on 1st January 2021.

Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility during this very difficult time. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions at all.
