    Depends where you are really. Are you looking to do a fun jump for charity, a static line one off, or looking to get in to the sport?

    If your near Manchester or Milton Keynes and want to try before you fly:

    No problem,my son did this at the Milton Keynes one a couple of weeks ago and he loved it.If you search on web you may find some offers for it also rather than going direct(he got 2 "flights" for the price of 1)

    Its an absolutely huge adrenaline kick and scares the life out of many. But some get the bug and really become adicted. I think the indoor centres are a good idea as they give some indication of what it would be like in freefall without launcing from a plane.
    There is the option to jump alone - static line - or to do a tandem jump where you are strapped to an instructor and exit higher but with a chance to experience a degree of free fall under controlled conditions.
    Better if you go with a group so you can share experiences.

    Skyline - if you google it it'll bring it straight up. Did a tandem two months ago for help for heroes, amazing! Langar airfield is a DZ near Nottingham which is a bit closer to Birmingham. Hope this helps.

    Ive did one for charity...im a real adventure seeker, i wasn't too impressed with it, wasn't even scary...they do tend to do offer for those doing it for a charity but you will need to raise some funds to qualify..its worth a go and if you can get the video/photos as a momento, i have some and they make me smile
