“It’s a bit of a cliché, but when you experience something like this, something that you wouldn’t do every day, something you may only ever do once… it’s something unique to us as a group that we will always have in our memories, and we will never forget it.” – One of our sensational skydivers.

More skydive FAQs
All of our skydives are run through Skydive Buzz which is based at Dunkeswell Airfield near Honiton in Devon, which allows for breathtaking views when you’re above the clouds.
However, if this location does not suit you there are plenty of other UK-based skydive companies dotted across the country. Feel free to find your local site and let us know where you would like to jump. The support you receive from us will be exactly the same wherever you jump.
Absolutely! We encourage you to bring your family and friends along to share this amazing experience with you.
As there is quite a bit of prep to do before your event, we would recommend that any spectators arrive about 45 mins after your arrival time. There is a café at the airfield so your friends and family members can get food and drink while waiting.
The minimum age for skydiving in the UK is 16 years old. If you are under the age of 18, parental consent will also be required. There is no maximum age but you may be required to receive a doctor’s signature if you are over 70.
The standard upper weight limit for UK skydives is 15 stone / 95 kilos fully clothed. Please call the Skydive Buzz office on 01404 890222 if you are between 15 to 18 stone.
You can find the full Skydive Buzz FAQs page here with lots of useful information.
Our top priority is your health and safety. Our partners at Skydive Buzz will never let a skydive go ahead if the weather is poor, or there is a chance the weather could effect your jump.
Either us or the venue will let you know of any cancellations as soon as possible, but don’t fret – you’ll still get to jump, just let Skydive Buzz know which date is best.
It’ll get chilly when you’re 15,000 feet above the ground! Be sure to wear something comfortable, relatively loose fitting and insulated. Be sure not to wear anything that could fall off or hit you in the face as you’re jumping.
You can find the full T&Cs on the Skydive Buzz website.
