3 jumpers were booked, at Sibson, at 8:30. We were called 2 days before to ask to move to 12:30, which was fine, but I stated I needed to be away by 5 as it was my fiancees birthday and we had dinner reservations. The manager - Paul, was very accommodating, and said this is fine. The day arrived and... More

Our charity skydive has been cancelled 3 times, once because the plane was due a service the day they booked us in(why would they double book this). Cathy, was very unhelpful and rude every time we have contacted her. After the first cancellation they refused to move us to Peterbouroguh (which is closer to us). Now they tell us we... More

My instructor Steve was brilliant and I felt completely safe! Friends and family were made extremely welcome and the drop zone is... More

Just held a Charity Tandem Skydive event at UK Parachuting in Beccles with 18 people taking part, including The Bishop of Norwich! Staff were brilliant and communication prior to the day and on the day itself was really good. Everyone spoke highly of those that they did their skydives with, feeling confident they were in safe hands. We also had... More

Fantastic first experience with very knowledgeable staff who were extremely friendly and filled me with confidence. Also a lovely little cafe which was busier than we expected for that time of year but great for drinks and snacks. Highly recommended. Will definitely visit again!

We booked a tandem jump for last Saturday and we turned up on a cold miserable day only to be directed to the cafe after a briefing and a bundle of nerves- Luckily there was a break in the weather and we didn't have to wait long. I don't remember much about the plane ride but what a rush words... More

I did my tandem skydive 5 months ago at UK Parachuting Beccles and I was hooked. My New Years present to myself was to do the AFF course. I booked my ground school for the 23 jan, you have to do 6 hours of lesson's so you know how everything works. When I arrived on the 23 rd, I'd I'd... More

I booked my first skydive with these guys. The website gave me lots of information but talking to the lady when I called really put my nervous mind at ease. From our arrival everything was very slick and my Instructor Zuz was brilliant, making me feel confident in this scary situation. My family got really close to the action and... More
