Aerial Sports in Manchester
Tandem skydiving is by far the quickest and easiest way of experiencing the thrill of a free fall skydives from your very first jump.
Tandem parachuting is a great introduction to free fall skydiving by using a dual harness system. Parachutists need a reasonable standard of physical fitness and must not be overweight in relation to their height. Tandem Skydiving is the easiest and most hassle free way to make your first parachute jump. You experience the thrill of freefall and enjoy a long parachute descent.
Paragliding developed from the introduction of “Ram-Air” parachutes, designed by NASA as a method of returning the Apollo to earth. In the end it was dropped in favour of three huge round parachutes, which could not be guided or slowed down and so splash down was the answer.
Airborne was originally founded in 1973 as the Northern School of Hang Gliding, by the former Hang Gliding World Champion Graham Hobson. Airborne has a consortium of centres throughout the UK, the original centre is based in the south Pennines.
Our indoor skydiving packages are perfect for Gifts, Parties and Groups. Indoor skydiving is the simulation of true free-fall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel. It’s where the dream of flight becomes a reality.
After lots of testing Manchester Paragliders now know that changing the pivot point to where they want it will help move the centre of gravity and the hang point of the wing further forward, again more room for the pilot.
