Hello everyone! I hope your jumpsuits are still fitting after Christmas! We’ve had a great (but rather cold) start to the new year.  We’ve already sent loads of tandems up and had regular visits from all our club jumpers too. Looking back, what an amazing year we had over here at UK Parachuting! Loads of tandem students and a great number of AFF Levels completed. And by no means are we going to be any less action-packed this year, we already have an amazing list of events that will be taking place over the year such as FS Coaching with Jordan Bate, Sunset jumps over the beautiful east coast, Scrambles events and BBQs, on top of aiming to beat 2019’s records for tandems and AFF hoping to give many more people a taste of this amazing sport! We’re looking forward to more FS competitions and visits from our wingsuit jumpers too.

A big thank you to all our amazing staff here for all the effort they put in last year, and a big shout out to our Instructors, camera team, Packers, Riggers, pilots and admin & office staff! Myself and Archie are the two ‘newbies’ over here at UKP and we look  forward to an action-packed summer putting into practice everything we have learned so far!
