Fly in a Wingsuit

Terrifying, yet utterly breathtaking, a wingsuit experience is the closest thing to real human flight!


For highly experienced skydivers who fancy upping the stakes, a wingsuit flight is a truly incredible activity that induces a unique sense of euphoria that is quite like nothing else!

Featuring two arm wings and a single leg wing, the aerodynamic suits offer greater control than the equipment used in skydiving, allowing the flyer to travel horizontally for significant distances and to navigate and control lift and speed by shifting their bodies; skilled operators can travel at speeds ranging from as low as 25mph up to a hair-raising 200mph!

Go Skydiving

Freefall at a (quite literally) breathtaking 120mph, from a heart pounding height of 10,000+ feet, and enjoy a birds eye view like no other.

Would you take to the skies and stand on a plane as it flies at 150mph?

For a solo wingsuit flight, The British Parachute Association requires the user to have at least 500 descents or at least 200 freefall descents within the previous 18 months. Those with less experience must complete at least one jump using a training wingsuit/tracking suit.

Although wingsuit flying presents more risks and potential dangers than skydiving, provided you adhere to the strict rules and regulations, it is generally very safe.

Like skydiving, wingsuit flyers must use a parachute to land safely.

Like skydiving, wingsuit flights are best done on clear warm days therefore we recommend the summer months.
