How the Coronavirus epidemic is being managed within the skydving community
*** STOP PRESS! MOST SKYDIVING CENTRES REMAIN OPEN!***
Concerned about how the Coronavirus may affect a booking you already have with UK Skydiving Adventures? Or maybe you are thinking about whether you should book a skydive?
Please don’t worry!
Here are some reassurances from UK Skydiving Adventures as well as information on how the Coronavirus pandemic is being managed within the skydiving community in the UK.
Firstly, please be assured that all centres are following the advice and guidance as provided by the NHS and Public Health England to ensure the safety of staff and customers. A number of processes have been put in place including specialised cleaning of facilities and equipment, staggard arrival times, reduced numbers aswell as the usual social distancing rules and wearing of face masks that everyone now expects. Following a period of closure as a result of the lockdown earlier in the year, all centres did manage to re-open during the summer and many skydives have now been completed.
As we enter a second Coronavirus wave we will be communicating any centre closures on the list below if and when they are affected by local lockdown rules. Anticipated re-opening dates will be listed when known, however please be aware that these dates may change.
If you are considering booking a skydive with UK Skydiving Adventures:
Please be assured that once you have booked a skydive, if your skydive then needs to be postponed due to either the airfield having to temporarily close or due to you needing to self-isolate, your booking is still safe. You will be able to re-schedule your skydive free of charge to another date at your convenience.
Customers who currently already have a skydive booked:
To enable us to keep the centres, staff and customers safe, we would like to kindly ask that all participants and their spectators review the current advice relating to the virus before travelling to the airfield for a skydive. You can view the latest guidance at http://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public .
If after reading the current government advice you feel that you need to self-isolate and not make any unnecessary journeys, please let us know so that we can rearrange your skydive for another date at your convenience. We will be wavering any admin fee during this time.
Gift Voucher Customers:
If you have a skydiving gift voucher that is due to expire soon and you have been unable to use the voucher due to Covid restrictions, please don't worry! We will review each voucher and extend accordingly enabling customers enough time to use their voucher.
Centres currently open:
- Shotton Colliery
- Swansea - re-opening 13th September

Centres currently closed:

If the skydive you have booked will be affected by a centre closure, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01869 278706 to re-arrange.
