A professional parachute training facility in the picturesque North Shropshire countryside near Whitchurch, this Drop Zone is less than an hour from Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, the Black Country and most of north and mid Wales.

A Cessna 206 aircraft is used at this airfield with a capacity of five jumpers for static  jumps and they can be recorded on video for an extra fee payable on the day. Provisional membership to the British Parachute Association is included with each jump.

The Static Line Course Involves a days training during which you will be taught how to use the equipment, exit the aircraft, steer the parachute, land safely and all associated emergency procedures.  When you leave the aircraft at 3,500 feet a static line will automatically open your parachute.  This method of training is suitable for those wishing to make only one jump or to continue to progress in the sport.  Courses are run during the week and at weekends.  The course starts at 0800 and lasts for about eight hours.  Your jump will be made on the same day as your training (weather permitting), usually between 1700 and sunset.

Weight limits are 14.5 stone.

Minimum age is 16 years (if under 18 written consent must be obtained from parent or guardian). Maximum age is 55 years. If you are 40 years of age or over you will need a certificate of fitness signed and stamped by your doctor. Anyone else will be required to sign a declaration on the day of the course stating no serious illness or disability.

This parachuting center in Shropshire has a canteen on site serving hot and cold food and drinks. There are toilet facilities on site along with a viewing area for spectators. Spectators are welcome to come and watch but no pets or animals are allowed on site.
