There’s no denying that the lockdown was challenging for everyone, us here at FlyDays included. But if you’re looking for confirmation that things have been gradually picking up again for flying days and experiences, a skydiving centre reopening in Nottinghamshire is one of them.
A news report this week has highlighted the success of Skydive Langar, based in the Vale of Belvoir, which has been able to prepare and get fully COVID secure to welcome visitors back to their site since July, in line with the easing of restrictions by the UK Government.
Such has been the popularity of the centre’s reopening, which has been running since 1977, that they have seen an increase of 20% in new participants compared to recent years, which is a fantastic result.
Skydive Langar is also the home of the British skydiving team Chimera, who are set to represent Team GB at the Skydiving World Championships in Russia in July next year, so it has proved to be a vital training facility for them also.
Just like Langar, our flying venues and locations across the UK have been working hard to ensure, where they have been able to within remaining restrictions, that they can safely reopen for our range of flying days and experiences - including skydiving and parachuting (both available to book here on FlyDays).
In fact, there’s no better flying day to book than skydiving. And whether you opt to go in Tandem or via Static Line, they provide an adrenaline hit and joy rush that only a select few of our experiences can offer when you get airborne. What may also surprise you to learn, is that some of our skydiving experiences don’t even take place thousands of feet up in the air.
Our Indoor Skydiving experiences, which take place at iFLY centres in Manchester, Milton Keynes and Basingstoke, take place in a specially designed wind tunnel, which makes them a perfect day out for a family of all ages to enjoy together.
