Hi, you all just to say a huge thankyou for my lovely skydive this weekend.
I keep looking up and can't beleive I did it. I raised lots of money, and had a great day. Please thank the lovely Guy I jumped with, I can't remember his name! I was not nervous but terrified once I fell out the plane!! He kept talking to me so I knew I was safe!
Also the lovely Camera Man filming.

I shall stick to serving tea and coffee on aircraft!! And resist the urge to jump out at 10,000 ft!! But a memorable experience I shall never forget made all the better by nice happy professional, calm fun people! Thankyou xx

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and the team for last Friday’s skydive! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it, and everyone wants to come back and do it again! All the staff were massively professional but also kept us at ease and even made us laugh with their jokes!!

Hello! First of all I would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff there for the fantastic experience we had last Saturday 26th May :) My friends and I had a great time and are already planning when to visit next, what courses to do and who to drag along with us hahaha! Seriously... you have been officially listed as our new heroes!
Elizabeth Muscat Azzopardi
Just wanted to say a huge thank you from Eoghan and myself for such a wonderful experience last Saturday! We didn't mind the wait as it was such glorious weather, and the last jump of the day was definitely the best!
Thank you for making us feel so welcome and relaxed, please pass on our thanks to Matt and all the guys. Oh and a i apologise for the wet finger in the ear on plane - the others made me do it! Haha! :-D
May have been bitten by the skydive bug and thinking about learning to jump alone. If i do, will definitely come to you guys, no doubt about that.
Was a brilliant way to mark my 30th birthday, will never forget it.
Huge thanks for everything!
Sam & Eoghan. x

We couldn't have wished for such a perfect day on Sunday (27th May). We could see for miles around and 'thanks' to Matt and Martin our tandem partners for making it so easy. We had a brilliant time, raised over £800 for the RNIB and will remember it for a very long time. Thanks for everything, Pam & David
Pam & David
I'm sherif amin essawy,Yesteday at 9/10/2012 , I was with u to the AFF level 1 with Chris.
Really it was amazing , great trainer , amazing and friendly stuff.
the experience also was incredible.
A special thank for all of ur friendly stuff.
I cannot wait to c the pictures and the video to this expereince, hope u send it as soon as possible.
Just wanted to send a note to thank you and the whole team for an amazing time on Saturday when I completed my Skydive!
Matt was fantastic..... bearing in mind that he is jumping with people over and over, his enthusiasm was unfaltering and he made me feel very well looked after. What better way is there to cheer up a regular Saturday afternoon than to be strapped tightly to such a lovely man!! ;-)
Anyway, I can't wait to recieve my DVD (thanks to the cameraman, Bensie, I think?).
You all do a truly amazing job, I hope to do it again and will be telling all my friends to have a go!
thanks for the frill of the life time even if i made you deaf while screaming out of the plane !!!! fantastic and the beer went down well :) x went with martin
What an amazing morning! MASSIVE thank you to Dan and 'Crazy' for looking after me so well, you guys were awesome :) loved loved loved my sky dive and I knew that I was in good hands! Looking forward to getting my DVD! Who knows, maybe see you again soon...
I sky dived with you yesterday and I wanted to write to thank you for this amazing experience.
My instructer Harrison was brilliant at keeping me calm (especially when the aircrafts doors were opened and I was bricking it! Lol) He kept checking I was alright and it was a delight to jump with him.
I loved it so much that I would like to do another. Can I just double check the cost is £150 if booked within 12 months?
I think I have got the sky diving bug now!
On behalf of Lucy, Rebecca, Bradley, James and myself, I just wanted to say what a fantastic bunch of people you all are and how you made our first experience of Skydiving one we will all remember for the rest of our life's.
We had such a wonderful experience that we are already making plans to book with you again sometime soon, but this time there will probably be more of us!!
The fact that we were also able to raise over £4K for three different charities makes it seem all so worthwhile.
Please extend our heartfelt thanks to all your team and we hope to see you all again in the near future.
some times your lucky enough to meet one amazing person if ur really lucky you will get to meet a few, if u meet an entire hanger full of awesome humble open funny people well thats when you come to skydive london, people that very easily could have been arrogant and excluding because they are really good at what they do, where including warm and treated me like family.
on top of all of this they helped me get to the point where i was ready to get one of the biggest thrills of my life.
i didnt jump out of a plane, i jumped into a whole new better way of life.
thanks guys :)

Hi all at skydive London, I was the one who asked my girlfriend to marry me yesterday! All the staff were great at keeping it a secret, she had no idea which was very special. A huge thanks to my Instrutor dan who was very professional and thanks to cookie and crazy and dab for making it great fun and who were all really into the whole thing!! And last a thanks to babd on the floor for sorting the banner and ring.

I especially wanted to say a huge thank you to Ricky for making my dream come true, for making me feel so safe and for all his words of encouragement. I would also like to thank Bunce for capturing my amazing day on DVD and for all the photographs they are unbelievable.

Hi, I just wanted to say a very big thank you to your team for a great day yesterday. I jumped with Matt who I must say made me feel very at safe and at ease despite what I was about to do!!!!!
The weather was extremely kind to us all and made the views out of this world.
Many thanks again.

Got my DVD today, good skills Crazy! Thank you so much for an amazing experience! x

Your are all incredible,

Hello, this is a message for Dylan and Luke (and not forgetting loose cannon camera man Benson.) Many thanks for doing such a great job in looking after my daughter Grace and me earlier this month and making our jump so enjoyable. We really appreciated the enthusiam, goofing about in the plane and most of all your skill in making us feel so safe.
David & Grace Phillips
I attended the static line line jump course on the 30th and had a great day and the staff were fantastic.
Was wondering how to go how about attendeing a follow up static jump at Swindon again? Would I arrange through you as both Layla and I would be very keen to do a second static line jump if there are spaces say 27 April for example?
Thanks to all at Skydive London for a fantastic weekend particularly Mike, H and Ash for dragging me through levels 1-3 and the friendly voice on the radio for not letting me land the wrong side of the hedge...again. Looking forward to level 4
Brilliant, you’re a star, thanks so much J and thanks for a great day on the 31st, I have been singing your praises to all my friends and family, it was an amazing experience!
Have just watched my skydive DVD 3 times over!!!! Love it, love it, love it! Thank u so much x
A huge thank you to Brucie and the team for enabling our team to Jump for Hope today!
Yes I jumped and it was fantastic thank you. Best experience ever and already considering my next jump.
Matt and Benson were awesome!
My chosen charity is Help For Heroes.
Many thanks indeed to all at Redlands for making our Jump for Jamie possible - and giving us the 'charity' rate. I attach a thank you that I am sending out to sponsors to acknowledge their donations for your interest. My nephew Jamie is suffering from an inoperable brain tumour and was only married in December 2011, very soon after we had had a sudden and tragic double family bereavement. You guys gave us all an amazing and life affirming day. All the instructors were brilliant - my family cannot believe that Danny Morgan managed to keep me calm enough to fall out of a plane at 10,000 feet - and the organisation, professionalism and efficiency of all concerned was most reassuring!
Before his illness Jamie flew small aircraft in East Africa and designed and built eco-lodges. We are hopeful that with the treatment he is receiving he will be able to pick up that life again before too long. In the meantime he is enjoying being a very hands on Dad - something that at one time we thought he would not live to experience.
Wishing you many sunny weekends and good weather this year!
Just wanted to say a very Big Thank you for Saturday's Tandem Skydive my Sister, Karen did. She thoroughly thoroughly enjoyed herself, it was amazing, even though I didn't do one, I felt like I had! The DVD is fantastic and big thanks to Lucy for that. We have watched it about 20 times already! The weather was FAB and the whole family had a great day out and enjoyed the experience.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone for a great day yesterday. Thanks to Matt for being a great, reassuring instructor to a very freaked out passenger! The free fall was amazing and I'm so pleased to have done what I thought id be
too scared to do. You guys are great! Thanks to Johnny Utah for the in-flight entertainment!
what can I say -a totally awesome experience in every way today, I haven't stopped grinning and it was 9 hours ago! Massive thank you to Mike - he was brilliant.
Could you do me a big favour and thank Benson for the fab video/photos? He delivered the DVD this afternoon (what service!!) and captured the experience perfectly, all set to one of my all time favourite tracks - Deadmou5/Kascade, obviously a man of taste haha.
I will defo be back - with my sisters in tow,
wanted to say thank you to H , we had an amazing day , got the bug now! thanks again :)
Thanks to Matt and Neil. Really awesome way to come back down to earth. Cant wait to see the look on my face during the freefall. Saturdays experience makes me want to do it again one day.
Had the best time today - second jump was the charm! I'm so privileged to say I was Benson's first and he nailed it (quite literally!!!) I tried to mess with him and freak him out, but he kept his cool!
Thanks Benson for a truly amazing jump and for getting me on the AFF course, changing my perspective on everything and thanks to the other guys for a great laugh.
Hi guys, thank you very much for an absolutely amazing day and thank you Dylan & Jon for making my jump WICKED. I loved it. Sorry for nicking the lime-light with my silly hat Dylan. I won't were it next-time... I Promise m8!!!! What an AWESOME pic by the way!!!! ;-)))
I did my AFF 1 with "H" on saturday(4th) and jumped on sunday (5th) with "H" and Dillon. Just wanted to say that it was an amazing experience and if I had the money i would be back every week.
At the time "H" said he thought Dillon may have filmed the jump but i was a bit spaced at the time and left without checking. Is this something you could help with? was there a film? is it still available? how much is a copy?
Would like to say Saturday was Amazing thanks to Dylan for looking after me. I can't wait to come back and maybe do a static course!!!
Dear Brucie and all the sky diving team,
Thank you so much for a fantastic day on Saturday.
We all had an absolutely fabulous time....and we all lived to tell the tale!!
From The Trinity School Mission team, who hopefully are now heading for over £6000 raised from the dives!!!
Nicky, Dan, Chris, Louise, Bright, Jane, Faith, Sumreen, Tom, Joanne xxxxxxxxxx
Love it love it love it!!!!! Got my DVD today, have watched it over and over!!! It's wicked!!! Thank you so so much, to you and matt :) And......I've already signed up to jump again next year!!! (if I can wait that long!!) Thanks again,
Hi Crazy, Its jenny (dived on 6/4/12) with Adrian… I just wanna say a MASSIVE thank you for the video! What an amazing memory of the most amazing experience!! So glad it was filmed, now everyone wants to do it! Lol Can ya say a MASSIVE thanks to Ricky too as you both made the experince amazing!!!! Defo wanna do it again….. Thanks and BIG love x
Hey Crazy, Just want to say a big thank you to all the team for a great day and a awesome jump back on the 7th for the Wallace and Gromit Grand appeal. In total we raised in my village just shy of £500, So I'm really pleased. Another big thanks for my DVD too. I received it on Friday. Every time I watch it I can't help but laugh to myself. All those feelings come rushing back and I just want to do it all again! One thing I wanted to ask was, is there any chance I could get the video in its raw format? I do love the edit but I was really hoping to hear the sound of the air rushing past us at 120 miles a hour and of course the sound of me screaming. That's was the fastest mile I've ever done that's for sure! Lmao I really do hope I'm able to come up and see you guys again. I'm thinking solo jump next time. I'd have to get my own goggles! Anyways, hope your doing good. Keep safe mate, Carl Tarsey P.s Ive attached one of my photos. Please show it to Matt because I think it's a real classic! Lol
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the most AMAZING experience on Sunday. Luke is one of the coolest guys ever, couldn't stop laughing and knew I was in such safe hands! And thank you to Jonny too for the FANTASTIC DVD and photos. Thank you all so much :-)
Hello! We want to say a massive thank you to everyone at Redlands for the fantastic time we had on Saturday 17th March. From Babs checking us in with a smile, to Matt's corny briefing jokes; from Ricky diligently kitting us out, to Dylan's safe landing - not forgetting Pieter's brilliant videoing - we had the most amazing experience we could ever have wished for. Thank you so much for being so accommodating when our jumps were cancelled last year and for juggling the plane schedules so we could jump together when Libby was stuck in traffic. We will definitely be recommending Skydive London to any of our friends mad enough to consider jumping out of a plane at 10,000ft! All the best and thanks for making our jump so memorable.
Jenny & Libby
Dear everyone My husband Andy did a skydive with you on Saturday 17th March as a surprise 30th birthday present! We didn't tell him what he was doing until we turned into the airfield and from the second he realised what was happening until even now, he has had the most humungous grin on his face!!! Thank you ALL for making it such a fantastic experience!!! From the minute we got there Babs was amazing, I normally freak out a bit when I'm not quite sure what is going on but she was ace and friendly and helpful and it was so well run. Andy had an amazing tandem guy who span him round and let him have a tug on the thing and everything and Crazy has produced a wicked dvd! I really can't thank you all enough. He works really hard for us and deserved something special and you certainly gave him that. Hopefully we will see you all again really soon - I did wonder if one jump would open the floodgates to a new hobby and I think that is exactly what has happened!!!! Oh no!!!! Thanks again Charlotte Wain (and Izzy and Andy!) xxx
Just recieved our videos & photos from our skydive on Saturday...love them!! Thanks guys!! :)
Me and heather jones Just wanted to say a major thankyou we had the most amazing experiance on sunday a special thanks to rob and ricky who were our tandem jumpers and martin and pete the camera guys the whole experiance was made fantastic because of them and we are going to do it again in september and so hope to see them again then thanks again paige and heather :)

Would like to thank Dylan for getting me to the ground safe on Saturday!!! ♥
Hello everyone. I just wanted to say I did my AFF level 1 this weekend (10th, 11th March) and had a fabulous time. Everyone I met there was extremely friendly and helpful, I always felt safe and would love to come back. An especial thank you to Dylan for my one on one training, Dylan and Chris who instructed the skydive, also to Crazy for videoing the jump, I cant wait to see the final DVD. You were all very friendly, and with all of us having a laugh it made the whole experience enjoyable and made me relax and trust you, I loved every second of it. As soon as my funds allow I will be back for my next step. Great work guys and thank you for looking after me throughout the whole process. Hugs to everyone for keeping me safe and in one piece.
Hi Brucie, Just a quick line to say what a fantastic day I, and my five guests, all had yesterday. The professionalism and attitude of every single member of staff we encountered was absolutely spot-on, and the admin process ran like clockwork. A mention in particular to Dylan and Ricky, instructors to myself and the wife respectively. I found Dylan to be knowledgeable, confidence-inspiring and very funny - all attributes very helpful to those with slight apprehension about a first skydive. The photographer we had with us did a great job too and we're looking forward to the dvd dropping through the letterbox. Hope to be back sometime in the future for another go! Blue Skies, Ian.
Completed my 1st dive yesterday and I have to say what an amazing experience!! A huge thank you to all at Redlands, professional, friendly and very funny! A particular thank you to Matt, my instructor, you were just awesome, thank you. I loved the whole experience from start to finish xxxxx
Hi guys, just a quick note to thank you so much for all your help with my Jump on the 10/12/11. I really enjoyed the experience, everyone was friendly and i raised lots of money for charity. The dvd arrived in the post yesterday and when i got home from work at 00.20am, i made everyone get up to watch it! Brilliant!! Thank you so much. I'm proud to have been jumper 2200!! Look forward to jumping again for charity soon. Hayley <!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--> <!--[endif]-->
Hi Brucie You have not been forgotten – it’s just that one of our skydivers has suffered a serious relapse (one of the major hazards of MS) and is only now recovering and still has a little sponsorship to bring in. But it’s nearly year end so I’m writing with our full fundraising total to date. And it’s quite something! The June team of ten, between them, raised £8,044 and our August lass raised £1,002 so that makes a grand skydive total of £9,046 for 2011. We think that’s quite stunning for just eleven people, and we are particularly proud of our four June people with MS who, against all the odds raised £6,929 of that total amount. It just goes to show that there’s no such word as “can’t”. Brucie, thank you so much for making this opportunity for our people to skydive and for helping us to raise so much badly needed money. We hope to come back to you in 2012 with another team; we will keep you posted! Meantime, best wishes for a happy Christmas and a healthy, peaceful and prosperous 2012. Kind regards Janet x
Received my dvd yesterday of my tandem skydive, absolutely brilliant! Thank you for an awesome experience last Sunday and thanks Dylan for looking after me!!
Thank you for a fantastic experience on Saturday, can't believe i actually did it and looking forward to receiving the DVD so i can actually believe it!!
Came up on 29th Oct and did a Tandem Skydive. I just want to thank all of you for the expert and very friendly way in which the whole thing was carried out. Couldn't get over the friendly fun atmosphere. Special thanks to Matt (sure miss your warm crotch dude ! and I don't have a ferrari either !) and Pieter (great dvd and pictures - and also for all that chat on the lift). Certainly gonna take advantage of a second tandem (just to actually try to slow the rush !!!!!!) Seriously thinking about AFF (but I think the wife will kill me !!!!) BIG THANKS AGAIN TO EVERYONE !!!
I was just about to email you to say a huge thank you to you and all the guys at Redlands Airfield for such a great weekend. I’ve had brilliant feedback from everyone who took part, and so glad that the weather came through in the end yesterday! We just watched Kiren’s DVD – it might be swaying me to do it, you never know! Sophie

Thankyou so much, and Mark has convinced me into doing my aff level one so when I have the money to do it I will definitely be back and in the mean time i will be back to do another skydive.
Hi Brucie, The DVD arrived and we have not stopped watching it. Crazy is brilliant at filming and also the way he has matched the music to the film. It is fascinating to see all that happened around me and the chance to watch a unique event in my life over & over again is brilliant, it adds so much more to the experience, and enables me to share it with people who could not join me at the time.Just wonderful.
thank you to you and all of your team was fantasic. thank you
The last Friday in September was a beautiful day & I finally got to SkyDive at the 3rd attempt. Thank you Dylan for an amazing experience and thanks to everyone at SkyDive London. I have raised over 400 to date so I will be able to take the patients on a 'Grand Day Out'as I planned. My granddaughter, now 6months old is already hearing about how I flew in the sky She had better get used to it as she will be hearing about it all her life! Awesome day & I wish I had done it earlier. Can't wait for the video.Thanks, you lovely people.
Hi Mark, I don't know if you remember us from a few weeks ago but she had such a fantastic day that I thought I'd email you directly with my comments. I'd be very grateful if you'd pass them on to the other guys as well? I bought this Red Letter day as a Christmas present for Andrea, and I have to say the whole experience was excellent - it exceeded her and my expectations. The whole skydiving crew at the airfield - the instructors, and the camera men - were a really cool bunch of guys, which really helped make a great day to remember. And when the edited dvd of her jump arrived, it completely wowed both of us! The weather was ideal - blue skies and sunshine, with white fluffy clouds below, and the filming and photography was great. It's really inspired both of us, and she can't stop talking about it and watching the dvd. She's seriously thinking about taking up skydiving now, and I'm mighty tempted myself. Thank you for a truly fantastic day to remember for both of us :) Kind regards, Andrew
thankyou for an amazing experience on Sunday, & thankyou to Brucie for making my experience relaxful and enjoyable. I shall definitely be re-booking again soon! ♥
Hi Brucie, I just wanted to thank you again for enabling me to have the most fabulous skydiving experience. I really don’t have words good enough to describe it. The conditions were perfect on Friday and I even enjoyed being held for 10 minutes at 10,000ft. I loved falling out into a clear sky and being able to see the ground the whole way down. Swinging around under the canopy was fun too. I have re-lived it all time after time and will continue to do so. I don’t think I need to do another one as that one was so fantastic it just couldn’t be bettered, and I will treasure the memory for the rest of my life. I am looking forward to seeing Johnny’s efforts on the camera. You are a generous and lovely man and I very much enjoyed jumping with you. Best wishes, and stay safe. Fiona
Would like to thank you all for the most amazing experience of my life on Saturday 3rd September, the DVD and pics are great. A bug thanks to Luke who made me feel so relaxed and at ease, just can't wait to do it again now
Who knew jumping out of plane could be soo easy, you guys are amazing. Massive thanks to Dave Newton - who made it easy and Mark Benson for the awesome dvd that arrived about 2 hours after my jump!!! I suppose to top that i'll have to learn how to do it solo...... :)
My dvd and photos's from the 3rd sept have arrived. Thank you so much to Matt and Crazylegs :) So nice to see it all again, and from a different perspective. Still cant quite believe I did it! x
Thank you so much for an amazing sunset skydive on 3rd Sept, my dvd and photos arrived this morning and its fantastic! Brought it all back! Big thanks to Luke and Martin
Thanks guys for making my bank holiday weekend. It was totally worth the wait!!!................... I'm hooked!
Anna Sofia Hawrot
Thanks guys for such an amazing skydive! We'll be back for sure!
Hi guys. Just to say thanks for tandem skydive the other week. Best thing i've ever done and will be doing another with you very soon! Also the DVD was great. Many thanks Paul
Hey guys! We had a amazing day with you on Sunday, huge thanks to Dylan and Luke for taking us up! I must say Dylan is a cheeky chappy, but certainly knows how to keep you happy :) We're still buzzing from it, cant wait to do it again! Cheers :) P.S please tell Dylan, I have just remembered the last thing he said to me before we jumped! x
Thank you so much for a fantastic experience on Sunday 28th August. In particular, we would like to thank Matt Attridge and Ricky Capanni for being great instructors. Also, huge thanks to our fab cameraman (really sorry we cannot remember your name - will put it down to the crazy level of adrenaline on the day!). We have total respect for you guys and your level of skill at what you do. We are so jealous of all the people skydiving this weekend. What an amazing sport! We will never forget our first skydive and have a great dvd and photos to show everyone again and again! With massive thanks and very best wishes, Len and Sarah xx
Len and Sarah xx
Hi Received dvds. Thanks everyone. Special thanks to Mat and Crazy :) you guys rock... that was moment of life and I wish I could get more memories like this Thanks Yeshokiran
I just wanted to say a huge thankyou for my skydive last Friday. It was an amazing experience and one I will never forget. I received my DVD yesterday and have watched it over and over, reliving every awesome minute! So many thanks again, especially Deano (my hero!) who made me feel completely safe and Benson for his great pics! I really hope to do it all again so see you soon!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at Redlands, but especially my instructor Ash, for my wonderful sky dive on Saturday 20th August. It was an incredible experience and I couldn't have felt more welcomed and looked after. Many thanks Phrynette x
Hi Crazy, Received my DVD yesterday you sent through of my skydive on Sat 6th August, with yourself & 'Cookie'!! We were the last jump of the morning session. Just a quick thank you to you for a fantastic recording job!! Watching it back makes me want to do it again & again!! Hope when I get to jump again in the next 12 months, it's with 'Cookie' & you filming it!! Top Job!!!........you both made it a day never to forget! Thanks!! Cheers David <!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--> <!--[endif]-->
Dear Skydive London THANK YOU so much for an AWESOME tandem skydive experience on Sunday 14th August! I had an amazing time and will remember it forever. A massive thank you to Matt Attridge for looking after me and affording me the experience of a lifetime, you are a fantastic guy Matt! As Matt knew I was raising money for the Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance in memory of our 18 year old son Greg who was killed in a car crash in May 2009. A 26 year old man is now service 5 years for death by dangerous driving. The air ambulance saved his girlfriends life and she has made an incredible recovery. When I jumped on Sunday I had raised £4500 but it seems the donations are still coming in and I expect to reach £5000 which is amazing! The DVD of my jump which arrived yesterday is fantastic! Thanks to Pieter and the film crew for a fantastic film. A friend managed to up load it to 'YouTube' last night in time for what would have been Greg's 21st birthday yesterday so Matt you are on the www! Here is the link.... apologies for the advert logos in the middle to start with, that is the converting/upload software I'm afraid, I hope to be able to get a better copy uploaded at some point. www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwctccBpxUg The local paper will hopefully do a piece on my skydive in a few weeks and Skydive London will certainly be mentioned. Thank you so much again you are an amazing bunch of people! best wishes Maggie Stiles
If I had the time and the money I would be at Skydive London EVERY weekend jumping out of planes. You guys rock!!!! G :)

Hi, I would like to say a big thank you to all for a great skydive on 13-08-11. You all made me feel welcome and relaxed. A big thank you to Steve for the great DVD and a massive thanks to Luke for making feel so relaxed and for a great jump. Hope to come back next year to do it all again. Thanks Craig Harrison
Hi, I would like to thank Brucie for agreeing to fit us in for a dive on the 5th August when we rang at the last minute trying to achieve our misson that week. I would also like to thank Matt for his cheeky banter through the whole event and Benson for the fab pics and DVD - these will make my friends laugh if nothing else! Take Care Holly <!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--> <!--[endif]-->
Dear Bruce and all your team, Thank you so much for fitting us in to complete our Help for Heroes skydive with you at such short notice yesterday. We were so dissapointed not to jump on the Wednesday at Cirencester and you really helped us out in our time of need. Our experience of you all was a truely brilliant one! You were all so friendly and fun that I'm sure if any of us want to skydive again we will definatly head back to you and indeed I will be recommending you to any friends who are interested too! I would like to thank Cookie for being so good with me, I was terrified and alas have discovered sky diving is not my thing, which is a shame because underneath my fear I wanted to really enjoy the experience! That aside I am glad I am glad to have had the opportunity to do a skydive and was pleased to have someone who in my fight or flight moment could cope so patiently with me freezing! So a big thank you to Cookie :o) I hope you all have a good weekend and many more productive jumps. Take care and warm wishes Claire Avis, Richard Avis and Holly Field
Fantastic weekend of skydiving for The Grand Appeal and Cots for Tots Appeal!Thanks so much to everyone who jumped and all of you who came to support your friends and family and a huge thanks to the all guys at Skydive London! Can't wait till September now!
The Cots for Tots Appeal
My first skydive - a big thanks to Cookie for looking after me xxxx
Just wanted to say thanks again to Mark and Dylan for jumping with me on 3rd April and helping me raise loads of money for the NCT. Dylan, I take it all back - the best bit wasn't landing, it was freefall for sure. Having got over the nausea and bruising, I really want another go!Big thanks :-) x
thanks for the warm welcome these past few days! i had a great time and really enjoyed hanging out with you. hope to return in the future and will definitely be staying longer. enjoy my beer fine! :)
Thank you so much for Friday, I absolutely loved it and as said on e-mail, wish I could do it all over again so I could enjoy it more with less nerves. I will definitely be taking advantage of the returnee discount! When I sent the e-mail on Saturday we'd raised £1570, think we've raised in the region of £1750 now. *thumbs up*
Thanks guys for the most amazing experience i've ever had!! Will definitely be coming back soon...you're a great bunch and thank you Dan for looking after me and making sure i got back down safe and sound with a big smile on my face!! Had a perfect day x
Had an amazing time of Friday! Thank you so much!! Was so proud of myself and my family were too!! Will definitely do another!! xx
Thankyou to you all for such an amazing day,a special thanks to luke who put me so at ease and made my jump a thoroughly enjoyable one! See you all soon hopefully X
Thx for a brilliant experience of the tandam jump guys, ill be back next year to try the AFF, Paul
Thankyou very much for making my day at Skydive London such a memorable one! All of the staff are lovely and make you feel so welcome :) A massive thank you too Luke who was my instructor and made my experience one in a million! Good luck on keeping the centre open, it deserves all the credit it gets :D
Dear Brucie, I am writing to thank you for being so hospitable at the RMHB Sky Dive day that took place on Saturday! I cannot thank you enough. The service you provide is truly remarkable and the Sky Dive centre is something to be genuinely proud of. I have spoken with all the other participants and everyone is reeling from their experience at the weekend. It really was a remarkable day and I still can’t quite believe that we did it. It was so generous of you to allow me to have a copy of the photos and the film! I have seen the pictures on Facebook and they are so funny. The fear is very evident in my expression! I cannot wait to see the film! My instructor Dylan was amazing; he really made me feel comfortable and kept me laughing when I was on the brink of freaking out. The photographer Crazy is lovely as well and I am so grateful to all your team for making the day so special. Please pass my thanks on to everyone involved. The level of customer service that you provide is fantastic and I will definitely be sending our sky divers your way in the future. As I have now experienced it myself I know how important it is to have good reliable people around you, especially if it is your first dive. Once again thank you so much for an amazing day! Blue Skies (I can say this now!) Natalie Lucy-West Fundraiser and Event Coordinator
Hi, Me and my friends sky dived last Saturday and had an awesome time. It was a great experience. Thanks to your friendly team who made us feel so comfortable. Special thanks to Matt for making me feel comfortable and taking good care of me. Had an amazing time. I really want to do it on my own now and thinking about the lessons. Hopefully, cya soon!!! Kirti
Hi Brucie Thought you’d like to know that everyone of my 25 June team who has jumped is absolutely high as a kite; some want to do it again, others will just cherish the moment (and the dvd) but all of them without exception found it the most exhilarating experience ever. And they’ve all said how well they were looked after by your team, how good the briefing was – and what a nice cafe you have! Just two more to go (Liz Ranger and Roger Forbes, booked in on 23/7) (and our “extra”, Tracey Williams on 6/8). And the fundraising! Two of them are well over the £1,000 mark on Justgiving, a third has just had a single donation of £500 come in from a supporter and there’s masses more to come from most of them. Would you like to know the grand total once it’s all in? This sort of money is seriously important to us; we’re not yet very big but we are growing rapidly (and moving to a new building next year) and individuals raising £1,000+ for this kind of experience is seriously good news. Thanks again for all your tlc Kind regards Janet x

Hi yes i did jump on Saturday 9th July. It was the best thing I have ever done so thankyou! (I secretly wanted to lie so I could do it all again!! haha!!) I hopefully will have the opportunity to do it again. I would just like to say all the staff on the day were really good and I was quite nervous but they make you feel safe. Please pass on my thanks to them and to the instuctor Gavin for bringing me to the ground safely. Thanks Erica Osborne <!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--> <!--[endif]-->
Hello! Just an email to say thank you so so much for making my skydive last Saturday one of the best experiences of my life! Have just received my DVD in the post and have watched it over and over again so thank you so much. Both that and the pics are ace! Thanks to you all for making it such a fab day (sorry to everyone in the plane for the amount of noise I made, and thank you for being so nice and passing it of as 'enthusiasm'!) Looking forward to next time already, Lottie
Than you for an absolutely amazing experience! The crew you have are phenomenal people and I will be sure to tell all my friends about it! Thanks again, Brucie. Bests, Melissa
Thank you for your help and another amazing experience, I hope to see you soon for another static jump.Hello Babs Please could you really thank Martin for me for the RAPS course yesterday. I had the most amazing day and couldnt stop smiling, I thought that having my chute being twisted would have really freaked me out but Martins training really paid off and was able to handle it immediately. The training was good fun, effective (sank in) and I had the best experience ever. Thanks Michelle <!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--> <!--[endif]-->
Hi Just wanted to say thank you for a brill day that i had, doing a tandem skydive with Matt he really put me at ease all througt the day, I did'nt feel nervous or scared when the door opened at 10,000ft. What a great way to spend my 30th birthday. I can't wait to do another jump. thanks samantha
Hi I did a Tandem jump with Mat yesterday and just wanted to let you know that it was brilliant. From booking in on the day, to the journey up in the plane lol!! to landing on the ground was great. What a brilliant chap Mat is, great instructor! Hopefully see you all again one day. Thanks for a brilliant time. Kate
Hi, I did a skydive with you today, it was totally amazing i was at ease all the way though, even when I was hanging out the aeroplane, I felt really safe and knew I was in good hands, thanks for a great day, I'll be back!!!!!! Cheers Mrs Davison.
Did the static line jump yesterday in glorious bright sunshine after the training two weeks ago! Would like to say the only criticism would be only lasted approx. 3.5-4 mins! Could have done with at least 33 mins flying in the air. Wow what a feeling of peace and calm. In fact the most terrify aspect of the whole experience was the training!!!! The emphasis was on the what if scenarios in an emergency. So was fully prepared. Safety seemed to be paramount at all times and this assists in a smooth transition from the air onto the ground. Will seriously consider doing AFF from a greater heights of 10,000 feet!! Would definitely recommend this to all adrenaline junkies! The major caveat would be one seems to be always battling against the British weather. Thanks again and hope to do AFF sooner rather than later! Tahir <!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--> <!--[endif]-->
Hi Steve, Just thought is drop you a line to say a massive thanks to you and the lads for making my 1st skydive so fantastic & memorable. The Dvd is great and the whole experience was truly one best days I've ever had! I'm already planning my next jump so you may be seeing me again soon! I'm also seriously considering going through the AFF course to become fully qualified but that's something for the future. I am keen to know if I could make a living out the sport? Lastly please pass on my personal thanks to Ash and the rest of the boys. Cheers Joel Pritchard. <!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--> <!--[endif]-->
Hi! I just wanted to say a HUGE! Thank you to Matt for the most absolutely amazing experience EVER! ( I am talking about the skydive!) I will be back for sure! Word’s can’t describe the feeling, thank you for keeping me safe!! Lots of Love Tillyxxxxx
Hello I did a tandem with Brucie on Sat, just wanted to say a huge thank you to him. He really gave me confidence and I had an amazing time. Such an amazing time, please could you send me some information on RAPS as I would really like to book it up. Thank you once again, the experience was unforgetable and I cant wait to give it another go! Michelle
thanks for a fantastic day, soooo want to do it again, and a BIG thanks for Matt who made me feel realy relaxed, xxxxx
Dear Brucie and Team, I just had to write and say a HUGE thank you for the most amazing experience of my life! The weather was awful and I was debating cancelling, I am so glad that I didn't. Nothing could have prepared me for the feeling as I left the aircraft. I very rarely envy people but I certainly envy you and your team who experience that feeling as often as you do. If only I had done it years earlier I have no doubt that I would have got the bug and would be doing it often, alas that is not possible but I WILL definitely be doing another tandem jump sooner rather than later. I just hope the weather will be better next time. I look forward to seeing the DVD and photos once again thank you all for such a fantastic jump. Maybe next time I will be able to scream! Hazel Overend
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Gavin and Matt. The jump was brilliant and so exhilarating. I don't think I would have been so calm if it hadn't been for Matt. The training before hand was brilliant and it definately put me at ease, even though it was a serious subject. I'd love to come back again and do another jump! I received the DVD and photos today which were brilliant too. I even look like I remembered to hold my legs and head up! So another big thank you to Gavin for his expert skills. THANK YOU! Elle
Hi I just wanted to say how brilliant the skydive was on Saturday. We had great weather for the jump and the 3 instructors on board made us all feel at ease. I didn't feel scared or nervous, even when the door opened at 10,000 feet! A BIG THANK YOU! many thanks Elle
Hi Just to say thankyou to you and all your colleagues for great time on Sunday. Jack thoroughly enjoyed himself and I might even be tempted?! Thankyou Karen <!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--> <!--[endif]-->
just to say a massive thanks to Dyl,Benson and Babs for a fantastic day and giving me the biggest addrenalin rush ever, see you all soon got to do it again.
I would like to thank all the staff at Redlands Airfield on sat 7th May.I had a fabulous experience which I will never forget. The experts looked after me so well that I felt completely safe throughout my jump, true professionals and fun too. Susan
Hi, I did my first Tandem Skydive (Yesterday) 30th April 2011. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone at SkyDive London, special thanks to Matt for his entertaining briefing session before the jump, to Luke the Camera man, and my main man Ricky who jumped with me, he was so friendly and reassuring and made the jump that bit better...I had an amazing time, what a great experience WOW! Thanks Again Sheree
Hi, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for making my jump, relaxed, well organised and amazing! I loved every minute of it, an experience I will never forget and would highly recommend to anyone. Can you please pass on my thanks to Luke who was my tanderm partner, you never know I may have to come back within the year!! Cheers Dennis
Thanks. And thank you for providing such a great day for Cameron today. Kind regards Simon
I jumped on Mothers Day for the NCT and wanted to say thank you to all of you - although at the time I wasn't sure I liked it, by the time the nausea had faded and the pretty bruises appeared, I had decided that actually it was pretty cool and I would definately do it again. But maybe come armed with travel sickness pills! Special thanks to Mark for the DVD - shame about the problem with the camera, but Adam, the baby, was very excited to see his mum on the telly (and the ambulance too - he thought all his Christmases had come at once) and that's good enough for me! Also, there are some amazing shots on the stills, which I wouldn't have got without the camera problems so every cloud..... Massive thanks too to Dylan for looking after me, and for his part in raising 547 (so far) for the NCT - couldn't have done it without you! You guys are all mad, but great - thanks for a fantastic day, an unforgettable experience and the nagging feeling that one day I might just do it again Mary
I took part in the Grand Appeal Skydive yesterday, heading up Team Jack. I just wanted to send a HUGE THANK YOU for a brilliant day and special thanks to Dylan who helped me get through my jump and to Rob the cameraman for capturing the moment. Amazing experience, we are all still buzzing today.... Will need to sign up some new recruits for Team Jack to take part in the next Grand Appeal Skydiving event! Thanks again, Paula
I just want to say what a fantastic time I had doing the tandum jump on 9th April 2011. A massive thank you to Dylan for being so much fun, and helping with the nerves! Myself and Jane will be back to deafen you all again with our screams!! Thanks again Jayne Martins
Brucie! J What can I say, you and the team made John’s 80th birthday skydive truly a weekend to remember, perfect weather, fantastic instructors, great cake but most of all incredible skydives! I have never seen so many proud, happy people from achieving their dreams and supporting the Grand Appeal, thank you so, so much for making it happen and being so supportive and generous. Team Grand Appeal loved the weekend and John was in his element, he was made up with the photo presentation and the dvd & photos, please also thank Howard for his kindness J You are all superstars and we look forward to working with you and the team for many years to come! J ©Love from© Lauren, Sarah, Anna, Leo, Nicola, Julie and of course the main man John! xx
Just a note to say a massive thank you to Andy who made the sky dive on Sat 9th April SO much fun! What a great guy! I have never felt so exhilirated in my life! Jayne Martins and I will be back for more! Fond memories, Jane
Hi Lu What a brilliant day! Thank you so much for all your organising and support – and initially encouraging me to have a go. In the past I have often thought I would love to try it but would never have taken the step on my own initiative. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute – apart from my stomach churning as we did some turns to get into the right place! My only problem was that last night every time I closed my eyes I was imagining I was in free fall and daren’t go to sleep!! Thanks to Bruce, Babs and all the people who helped to make it such a great time for us all. The whole set up really gave me confidence. I’ll let you have the cash I’ve got so far next time I’m in Bristol. Love Mary
Thanks so much for the most amazing experince ever i will never forget my Tandum Jump Saturday 26th MARCH 2011! Will defo be back to do many more!
Thank you to all the team! Especially Mr H who was my instructor. I had so much fun and will be back again!!!!!Sarah Cox Ditto all the way! Brilliant day and can't wait to do it again.
Hello, I completed a sky dive on Saturday 26th Mach and it was FANTASTIC!!! Please can you say a big thank you to Andy, Dylan, Luke and the other instructors for such an awesome day! Kind regards Scott Baker Leisure Club Manager

Had the most AWESOME skydive today, thanks Brucie. A HUGE thanks to Mark and Dylan.........you guys are my new hero's!. Thanks for looking after me (and putting up with me) Dylan. You are a superstar! :)
Just a quick email to thank you for rearranging my tandem dive to last Saturday morning. I completed the jump with "Andy" (I think.....northern lad, just recently became a Daddy!!) It was the best Tandem jump I have done.....amazing weather and conditions and generally a very well organised and arranged event. Thank you to you and everyone else who made the experience even more memorable. I'm going to start saving up and will come over and do another one as soon as possible...in the meantime I will happily recommend you to anyone who asks!!!! ;-)) <!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--> <!--[endif]-->
To Dylan & Buncey & all those at skydiveLondon.I just wanted to say a big thank you for making my skydive such a great experience. I Just can't stop talking about it! I'm hooked! I'd be rebooking for another one & I think I may have convinced some of my friends to come with me. See you next year! Jo Freemantle
Hello I just want to thank you all for the brilliant time I had Sunday I think you changed my life All of you were very good !! Special thank to Luke and the cameramens sorry do not remember their names but they made the trip going in to the sky very funny Hope to see you soon Ciao Sal
Hey there,My DVD arrived on Thursday, and it looks great! I just wanted to take the opportunity and thank Skydive London for providing me with a brilliant experience on 24.10.10.Please pass my special regards on to Chas, my Tandem instructor.Kindest RegardsSaad Butt
Hi Brucie I wanted to thank you and your team for a great day and an incredible experience. All of your staff were so helpful, professional and loads of fun - which is just what you want with sky diving. Everyone was great, even down to the camera crew, in particular I had Gav as my tandem jumper and Martin as my camera man - I just received my DVD and pics and am so happy with the outcome. I'll be sure to recommend your centre to anyone who ever wants to sky dive, and I'm sure I'll be back at some stage next year. Thanks for everything. Kati
Hello, I received my brilliant DVD today and when I watched it I relived my fantastic sky dive. I had so much fun and just wanted thank everyone who was there on 8th Oct for such a great experience. I especially want to thank Andy Shaw, who I had the pleasure of being strapped to, for being so funny and helping me relax and enjoy the experience. I will hopefully be back again one day but maybe i will try something a bit more adventurous like the course where you can do the jump on your own. Thanks again for a great day. Sam Frankham xXx
Dear Skydive LondonI just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for such an amazing experience, everyone at Redlands was so friendly and helpful!! I did a tandem skydive to raise funds for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice yesterday, (25/09/10) with instructor, and absolute legend, John Dunn. He did a brilliant job of calming me down when I was shaking with nerves on the ascent! Please pass on my regards... and apologies for literally jumping on him and hugging him afterwards!! It was just so incredible, I was absolutely buzzing, and I just thought it would amuse you all to know that I got some very strange looks on the train back home to Cardiff on my lonesome, smiling and giggling to myself. (Considering I spent most of the morning crying and freaking out!!)I'm not quite ready to jump solo just yet, but I'll be back again ASAP for another tandem skydive, bringing lots of friends so they can also experience the greatest feeling in the world!!Thank you again... and see you soon!!Caley
Hi all, I just wanted to say how impressed I was with your skydive centre. I did my 1st tandem on saturday and apart from being the most amazing experience ever, I was genuinely impressed with the service given, and how efficiently it was run. I didn't spend much time hanging around like I thought (although I suppose this is much more likely in poor weather) but the staff certainly made you feel very comfortable and at ease which I really appreciated. Can you please pass on my thanks to the pilot and cameraman (sorry, forget their names) and also a big thanks to Andy Shaw my instructor. I am still buzzing from the experience 24hrs later and cannot wait to come back and do it again. Many thanks, Lynn Davies.
Dear all,I had my first tandem jump on the 27th of August. I have to say it was thebest experience in my life. I would like to thank all the staff, for making this event so special forme! The whole atmosphere was relaxing, and everyone was very friendly andlooked chilled. I was on the last tadem jump that day. Even though itwasn't the first jump for the staff that day, they behaved as if they weredoing this for the first time ever, entusiastic, nice, funny andprofectional...Climbing up in that plane took about 20 min and it was hilarious. I have tosay you guys are crazy,in a very positive way:) You know how to takepeople's mind's off of their fears... You made everything looks so easy andenjoyable. And in fact it is exactly how it looks. Big thank you to Andy who was my jump partner, who was very supportive,calm and funny. Thank you for letting me spin us around - it was such fun.I am planning my next jump with skydive london as soon as possible and lotsof my friends want to do the tandem jump as well. I will see you all soon.Can't wait!!!Best regardsAgi
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you for making yesterday such a fabulous experience - both Ed and myself had an amazing time. Special thanks to Dylan and Benson for making the flight so amusing!!! Plus best wishes to Dylan and hope you have a fabulous wedding day and the sun shines on you. Thanks again, who knows we may even be back one day! Sue & Ed x
Dear Skydive LondonReference Catherine & Hannah Meatyard 8th August 2010I felt I should put on record my appreciation for a very enjoyable day yesterday.Catherine and Hannah had a great time and I was really impressed by how your staff enabled Hannah in particular to put aside her fear of heights and flying. Despite being a confident and talented horsewoman the skydive was a major challenge for her.The professionalism of all the staff (with possible exception of the wasp killer!) was outstanding and as a mother and father watching both daughters jump out of the same plane we felt totally at ease with the whole thing. The expressions on their faces on landing will stay with me for a long time. As someone who grew up in Swindon it is graetly encouraging to discover such a wonderful activity is located here. You will be aware that the girls were raising money for the target ovarian cancer and they greatly exceeded their expectations.Thanks again for a memorable experience for all of us,Best WishesDr. Barry Meatyard

Hi Luke Just a few words to thank you and the team for a great experience yesterday :) Your right, INDESCRIBABLE Both Gill and I were on a bit of a high afterwards, and I have to say, probably still are It has to be done again and I would like to think that I can make a bit more use out of the BPA membership before it expires . Well organised, professional but above all fun. Let me know when you are nearing your 1,000th jump it would seem that it would be an occasion not to be missed LOL Tina :) x
Hi Brucie,Just wanted to thank you and your staff for making Alex's birthday such a great experience, he has been telling everyone about it and is planning on doing some more dives later on this year. Unfortunately we are moving out of the area but Andy mentioned that he can jump from Dunkeswell which Alex knows well from his karting days! So I think we have him hooked! Thanks again.Annette
To Brucie and everyone at Skydive London I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for one of the most memorable days in my life! All of you were so professional, friendly and made me feel so at ease. I have to say that I absolutely LOVED every moment of the dive and looking back today it feels like a dream and I just can’t believe I’ve done it. I feel rather at a loss for words to say how much the whole experience has meant to me. I am delighted to have raised a massive amount for The Firefighters Charity, but also I have achieved something special for me. I am very sorry I did not have a chance to say goodbye to Chaz before we left yesterday, but please pass on a massive thank you for being such a great instructor. He was just great and gave me a fantastic first skydive. He was a real credit to your company and made me feel completely comfortable – I just hope that I did everything I was supposed to do….it all went past so quickly and I was trying to absorb every second! So I’m very sorry if I was an awkward passenger!!! I shall certainly be returning for another jump, but in the meantime I can’t thank you enough and would certainly recommend you to anyone considering doing a skydive. Thank you so much guys, you were just fantastic and I’m rather overwhelmed by it all! See you soon! Love and best wishes Kirstie Betts
Brucie, the jump today was absolutely amazing! Everyone loved it and I can't wait to reuse the discount jump voucher again.Thanks for all of your support and response to my endless emails.Heather
Hi, Just wanted to say a big thank you for the most amazing tandem skydive. Special thanks to my instructor Luke for taking great care of me, so reassuring and happy, and very chilled – a fantastic landing too! Just the most adrenaline filled experience, we had the most perfect afternoon, including the weather – (27th June). The school, is relaxed and well run, perfect balance of humour and professional / safety. Thank you for such a great afternoon - very glad we swapped from a hot air balloon ride! Becky Amiss
Dear Martin, I wanted to thank you for the amazing experience and professionalism of all the training and staff at Skydive. I have not stopped telling people about it and Skydivelondon. I have raised over £800 so far for the MS Society, with a few more sponsors promised. Thank you and all the staff for a great two days and a good landing. Best wishes, Jonathan
Hi Brucie Just want to say a HUGE thankyou to you and all the team at Redlands Airfield for making my husbands skydive an amazing experience. I booked this as a surprise birthday pressie and from my first enquiry down to the day itself everyone was fantastic!! He had such an amazing day and after seeing how lovely you all are its made me think that I can do it too!!! Thankyou so so much :) Tanya Skene
Dear brucie, Just a quick email to say thank u guys so much, i jumped today and it was the most amazing thing ever! From the people to actually jumping it was fab,im awful with names but my partner was brilliant and their banter in the plane put us at ease. cant wait for the dvd to see the faces i was pulling! Thanks again and i have now managed to talk a few mates into doing it also so i will be back very soon! carla bowers
BruceJust a massive thanks for the fantastic support and thrill that I had during my first jump on Saturday.The atmosphere that was inside the plane certainly helped to break the tension of jumping into the unknown. Could you also convey my thanks to Luke Ingram, it was a real pleasure to be involved with such a brilliant buzz. Mark Francis
Hi WOW WOW WOW!!!! I would just like to thank you all for a fantastic day and a memorable experience. On arrival the centre is relaxed atomsphere and watching the staff prepare their equipment makes you feel safe. The team were great and comical putting you at ease and taking your mind off the jump. I would personally like to thank Luke for the instruction lesson again serious and light hearted. Mark for videoing the experience and Dylan for taking me on my first jump (something I have always dreamt of doing for such a long time) and all making me feel safe and making me laugh with their sense of humour. Would highly recommend you all and hope to come and jump again - think it will be another tandem again for now. Once again thank you, thank you, thank you xxxBest Regards Kelly Thompson
Hi Luke, John and Everyone at Skydive London, A huge thank-you for chucking us out of an aeroplane on Saturday morning, and bringing us back to earth safely. We both had a wonderful skydiving experience and we raised a total of about £1,700 for Action Against Hunger which is fab. Both David and I look forward to seeing our photos/videos so that we can re-live every moment (a photo of our own is attached, so that you are never tempted to forget us). As discussed on the day, it would be great if – as well as your final edit - we could have also the raw video footage taken by our cameramen, so we have the option of using bits for future MOF Showreels edited in our studio. In the meantime, it’s good to be alive…so thanks again for looking after us so well. Please tell your landlord that his wife’s bacon and egg sandwiches totally rocked – and I hope we can use you for a parachute stunt/job sometime in the not-too-distant future… Toodleoo, Ministers James and David x

Hi Brucie, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for making Saturday so fantastic for all our Grand Appeal skydivers! We all had an incredible time and the skydive itself was awesome! Everyone at the centre was so professional and calming, and all of our team loved the experience, raising thousands of pounds at the same time. I would recommend jumping with you to anyone and everyone for a day to remember! (Feel free to use that as a testimonial too!) I can't wait to do my next jump! : ) LAUREN VINCENT Community and Events Fundraiser www.grandappeal.org.uk
Hi Brucie, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for Saturday. The 4 of us who jumped for the charity were so impressed with the way you run things and we all had an awesome time. I can’t believe how calm I felt- must have been Craig’s re-assuring affect on me- I literally had no nerves even just before we jumped! I’d definitely do it again (if money was no issue) and will be shouting even louder now to rally together some more participants. Thanks again, and keep up the good work. Lu Ps If there’s any jobs going to train up a female instructor, I’m your gal!
Thanks for a great experience yesterday - and helping us to raise funds forProspect Hospice. Please can you also pass on a special thank you to myinstructor Andy, who constantly reassured me, giving me absolute confidence. Jill
Thanks for yesterday the most thrilling experience I have had, see yousoon.Elvis
I am just writing to say, Thank you so much for an amazing experience!! Ididn't get the chance to say thank you so much to Brucie Johnson again,because he went back up in the plane. He was such a good instructor!! Iwould love it if you could let him know. I don't think i can say imfrightend of flying now! I am even thinking about booking a jump for mybirthday, I loved it so much! Thank you so much again! Chloe
Hi Brucie,thanks for getting me on the first hop, the view freefalling above the cloud sheet was just fantastic. I loved every second of it!I'm trying not to think about wanting more!RegardsIan
Hi everyone, Just to say a big Thank You to you all for making my day at Redlands yesterday such a brilliant experience. It is such a lovely place, all the staff are so relaxed and friendly which creates a fantastic atmosphere. A special thank you to my instructor Andy who was absolutely wonderful and made my first jump an amazing experience. Best wishes to you all. Amanda Tibbles x
Hi Martin Just a quick note to thank you for the fantastic DVD and photos of my tandem jump in Swindon on 31st Aug. It's been great being able to show everyone. Would just like to apologize for not answering your question 'what was the best bit?' after I had landed, but I think I'd left my eardrums a few thousand feet up, and couldn't hear a word anyone was saying. Many thanks again, please pass my thanks onto H as well.ena Adamson
I recently took part in a tandem sky dive on 23/08/09. I would like to say a huge thank you to all involved, it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I found everyone at Redlands airfield to be so friendly and encouraging, immediately putting me at ease. Please can you pass on my thanks to my camera man Martin who did a fantastic job, I'm so thrilled with my D.V.D. I have already watched it several times with a huge grin on my face. Please can you also pass on a special thank you to my instructor Lee Reed, who constantly reassured me, giving me absolute confidence which enabled me to feel totally safe whilst I "Enjoyed the view" ! With many thanks and kind regards Emma Appleyard.
Apologies for taking so long to thank you for an amazing experience with you and the team on Friday, May 22nd, but I have just managed to get the last of the sponsor money in from all the lads. It was actually worth the wait - nine of us tandemed on the day and we raised £877.15 for The Firefighters Charity. Many thanks again for such an awesome day. Two of us are undertaking an AFF Course at the moment - we are on Level 4 at present. We are looking for some Friday jumps - shift pattens and all that - could you please forward me your prices for level 4 and up and also consolidation jumps and beyond.... Also, could you confirm that I have £50.00 credit with you, due to paying for one deposit that we did not use. Your help in this matter is much appreciated. Yours In Freefall,
Hi Bruce & Co.We'd like to thank you and all the staff at the Redlands Skydive Centre for giving us such a fantastic day last Sunday. Our family do some crazy things together, but that was the craziest and certainly the very best. From the initial signing in, through to the briefing from Andy, the great tandem instructors, you Bruce, Andy and Jerry, the pilot and the photographer, we were made to feel as relaxed as possible in a very friendly, but efficient and professional way. Our supporters were also made to feel very welcome.We really enjoyed the flight up to 10,000 ft, and after the initial " !!!!!!!!!!!!!! " from us on leaving the plane like we've never done before, we actually loved the descent. The "high" lasted for a long time.We would certainly recommend you to anyone "mad enough" to want to do a similar thing.Thanks again and best wishesValerie Baldock, Jules Baldock and Clare Humphrey.

Brucie (and the team), Just a quick note to say thank you for taking us up there and dropping us out of a plane safely. You guys clearly know what you are doing, are straightforward and professional about safety and have an amazing office. It was exhilerating and I'll definitely be doing it again. Kind regardsKate

Hi! I had an amazing jump on Saturday (Group 8) and just wantedto say a huge thank you. Andy made the experience amazing - even though iwas rubbish and left the plane like a plank!!I think i may have caught the sky diving bug and wondered if you would beable to tell me what the next steps are? I'm not sure i am ready to do acourse yet (jumping on your own is a big step!!) but I would love to doanother tandem jump ;) Thanks!Lucy
Just like to say thank you for such a wicked skydive, we are all still reliving it and buzzin from such a great experience. May be back to jump again sometime. It was awesome. Happy jumping From Nikki Sam and Jo

Hi I just wanted to email to say a big thank you to everyone at Redlands. I did my first Tandem Sky Dive yesterday and absolutly loved it!! I really wasn't sure if would be abe to do it because heights are really not my thing, but all I meant made me feel so at ease that I knew I would be ok. Andy and Luke were great and made the expereince one I will always remember - and I one I want to repeat!! Thanks again Kate
Hi Brucie Just wanted to say thanks to you and everyone there for making my groups tandem jumps on Saturday so enjoyable. We're all still grinning and most of us are hoping to come up and do it again in the foreseeable future. Thanks again Jamie
Brucie, Thanks for a 'sensational' skydive (9-8-09). A truly wonderful experience. All your team helped this event to be a day to be remembered. To be done again. Best wishes, Glenn.
We visited you on Saturday for our first skydive. It was a fantastic experience and we are looking forward to jumping again with you and hope to get a few friends along. Please give our personal thanks to Andy Parkin, Dylan and our two great camera crew who made the day for us. They were brilliant and an asset to Skydive London.
Jackie & Bradley

Dylan and Andy - thanks for taking care of us (and for your beautiful rendition of Happy Birthday to Owen).Steve - brilliant DVD, I love it. Thanks!It was honestly THE best thing I have ever done and I'm now trying to work out when we can come for a second jump. Can't stop smiling every time I watch the DVD - so awesome.

Hi Brucie,Thank you very much for the skydiving. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.Could you also thank Andy, as everyone was commenting on how amazing he was as an instructor - patient, thorough and fun. Also, could you thank Jordy (or Geordie) for the class-room briefings, although most were exhausted by then.It was great taking part on Saturday, and was very much a learning curve. I hope that we can keep jumping with you guys! The course was very professionally run, and I can't wait to make this a regular occurrence.Regards,Andrew Griggs
Hi Brucie I had my skydive with you guys on Sunday and I firstly want to say thank you very F-ing much. Twas awesome and I loved every second, would've done it again straight away if I could. I have found my newest most expensive hobby thanks to you! Jo
Dear Sir/Madam,Could you please forward this on to Redlands on my behalf.On Saturday 25.10.08 I undertook a tandem parachute jump at Redlands. The booking process was so straight forward and the staff were very helpful, and supplied all the information necessary.On arrival at the airfield the staff there were efficient and friendly, and quickly put everyone at ease. There was a warm welcome, which was good as the morning air certainly had a chill about it! Bruce gave us our safety briefing. He then decked us out in our jump gear. He was great. He explained every stage and made sure we all understood. The whole atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. It was evident that the staff where there to make sure that everyone had a great time and a great experience.Bruce then introduced me to my jump instructor, Ryan. Ryan also ensured I was at ease and asked if I had any questions. As I walked to the aircraft, Ryan briefly went over safety aspects again, and what he would be doing and checking once we were in the aircraft. He was very informative and it was evident that he was also very experienced. He made me feel as though I had known him alot longer than just the few minutes since we were introduced.Deep down I was very excited, which apparently did not show externally as everyone kept asking me if I was alright and not to worry. In hindsight, maybe I did look a little concerned as I do not like heights especially where I do not have a barrier in front of me. This is certainly the case when you are dangling from the side of an aircraft!The aircraft reached its target of 10,000ft, the door was opened and everyone was jumping out in order. My turn came. We bounced to the door, and without realising, there I was dangling with nothing in front or below! I did not have time to think as Ryan pushed off. It must have only been for one or two seconds, but I felt I was on my own and hurtling towards earth at a pace of knots. Then there was a tap on my arms. The signal to take up the diving position. My brain must have told me subconciously that I was not alone after all! as I felt myself relax, take up the position and I enjoyed every second of the jump. I was actually disappointed when we landed and it was all over. I felt like a kid at a funfair, and wanted to turn round and say again, again!It was not until it was all over and the whole experience was going around and around in my mind, and I kept reliving every moment, that I realised exactly how I felt when we first jumped out of the aircraft. My fear of heights and no going back. I also realised that my life was in Ryan's hands, and he certainly did a brilliant job in looking after me. I was on a 'high' for two days afterwards, and I have not 'landed' yet.I cannot express my gratitude to all the staff at Redlands, and a great big special thanks to Ryan. Ryan has made a big impact on my life through this fantastic parachute jump. I would like to wish him, his wife and his baby a long and fruitful life.Thank you everyone, I would certainly like to jump again sometime.
Hi Bruce,Many thanks for making our jump day a success. Everyone had a great time and I believe that quite a few of us will be doing it again. We will certainly float the idea at the College to make it an annual event. Take it easy..Ellis
Home safe and sound, the aquarium burbling away the constant noise of the traffic in the distance trying its best to smother the bird song. My most lasting memory of my tandem jump today will be of the "exhilerating silence" which has re-awakened my somewhat tired and tarnished view of life.Please pass on my thanks to Ash and the rest of your team for a truly wonderful experienceGraham Smith
I jumped on Friday, with Marc Mackintyre and Naomi Baker<P>Wow, I didn't think the human body could feel so many extremes of emotions in 45 mins - tremendous!!!It was one of the most fantastic afternoons I have had, I loved it, OK the anticipation nearly killed me but in a weird way that was the bit I enjoyedI would like to say a big thank you to Bruce who took me up, sorry I was a bit of f girl in the plane, and to all the staff at the centre, all brilliant, very professional and they really helped to make it a fun event. Especially to the kind lady who gave me three beers at the end (I thought it was a bar! - Whoops - and she wouldn't take any money for them - well needed)Tremendous, we will be back!Matthew LUNDIE BSc. (Hons)Risk Consultant
Good Morning Guys,I just wanted to email you all at Sky Dive London to thank you all so much for a brilliant experience on Saturday the 13th of September. From start to finish I had an excellent time. Special thanks to Dylan and to my instructor Andy Shaw you were both great.Many Thanks, Jenny Lingard
May I also just say that My boyfriend and I enjoyed our day very much at Redlands airfield, It was a presant for his 30th birthday - we still can't believe we did it. But wanted to say a BIG THANKYOU to you and the instructors for a great experience!!
Dear Jerry, I should like to express my thanks to you, Andy Shaw and Steve Bunce for your contribution to making our first Tandem jump such a superb experience.Your relaxed and humorous manner on the ground and in the air coupled with an overlying professionalism and regard for the safety and well being of your students gave my son Chris and myself a thoroughly enjoyable and unforgettable day.Thanks also to Buncey for recording the event on film for us to re-live the experience. The picture quality he produced whilst tracking a subject at freefall speed still mystifies me. Many thanks again,Happy LandingsVince Mason - BPA 1065195Chris Mason - BPA 1065194

Thank you to everyone at Skydive London for making my skydive so amazing. I'll definitely be back to do another one, maybe by myself next time! Thanks Again Amy
Hi Ryan, DVD came through today – Great job! Some wicked footage there plus excellent photos, angles and editing – absolutely AWESOME in the true sense of the word! If you want me to leave feedback somewhere or testimonial about paying the extra for the DVD I will do gladly, it was well worth every penny and has completed the experience for me, and possibly started off a new hobby, looking into doing a lot more now as there is somewhere quite near to where I live it turns out… That’s my site - http://www.jasonkent.co.uk/skydive I also ‘youtubed’ a smaller edited version – I left your credits on the end ;-) All the best with your jumps, and many thanks Jase
Dear Grant Just a very quick thank you on behalf of the Benevolent Society for helping us organise the skydive last Sunday (20th July). All the staff at the airfield was great and the instructors were amazing, we all had a fantastic day and we have managed to raise over £20K in the process. It was so successful that we are planning on making this an annual event so hopefully next year we will get a least 30 people jumping and raise even more. Best wishes Nic
"I have heard people say that if a person has a disability there are so many doors closed to them....My experience, with the help and enthusiastic staff at Redlands Airfield, Swindon proves that disability need not be a barrier to achievement"
Hi Jerry, Just a short note to say thankyou for a fantastic jump last Sunday. (There's a joke or two in there somewhere!) It was excellent fun.Best Wishes,Mel McQueen
Dear All,I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic day I had last Saturday!Initially, when I received my Red Letter Day experience for my birthday lastyear, admittedly, my heart sank. A skydive was NEVER on my 'to do' list,and I really didn't think that I could do it. Of course, I didn't tell myfamily that and, if I'm honest, I only turned up on Saturday because Ididn't want to let them down.When I met Gerry, my Instructor, I was immediately put at my ease. He wasfriendly, reassuring and witty, as was my photographer, whose name, I'm sosorry to have to say, has escaped me (that'll be an age thing!). He wasreally great too... When we were on the plane, I really didn't feel asnervous as I thought I would. Even when the door opened and we sat with ourfeet out at 10,000 feet, I felt secure knowing that Gerry was with me. Thewhole experience was a pleasure from start to finish, mainly due to theprofessionalism, care and dedication of the Team I was entrusted to.I have watched my DVD over and over, completely amazed that I DID IT! (I amalso amazed at how quickly the DVD came through - what service!) I willDEFINITELY do it again, and this from a woman who used to have a fear ofheights and flying!!So, thank you so much for my experience. Please pass my thanks on to allthose who were with me last week, particularly Gerry. I can honestly saythat the memory will stay with me forever. I'm so glad I did it, and Ican't wait to do it again.Yours sincerely,Marie Hall,
Hi yaJust thought I would mail to say thanks again for yesterday - Paul and Iare very grateful and I am very pleased that its over !!!Could you pass on my thanks to Lee and tell him I'm sorry I didn't get hima cup of tea but I think I was in shock until about 7pm last night !!!And pass on Pauls thanks to Andy - they were both really nice to us andmade us much less nervous, if that's possible !Thanks againLucie Haugh
Hi Andy, Thank you SO much for such an amazing experience, i had a stupid amount of highness and animation after the drive home. But that's not the last you are going to see of me I'm afraid, I will be back next year. What's the next stage...that static line thing? Also, please can you say thanks to Jez for me, I received the DVD today and I am so happy with it, twas worth every penny, though the pictures have made me realise how big my nose is!!! I've attached a couple of pics. Thank yoooooooooooou!!!! Steph
Hey Brucie, Had such a great time skydiving, you guys really made it an experience never to be forgotton!We'll be back.... Rowanne x
HiI came up on Saturday to do my 1st parachute jump....I just want to say thank you to all the instuctors to making me feel at ease! Thank you to Lee Read who I jumped with, who was so fantastic!!!!...I will definitely be booking my next jump (of many) very soon...Sharon x

We just wanted to say thank you to all who were there yesterday when frank did his jump. You are a great team with some wonderful people and so helpful and friendly. He has really seen his 60th B'day in with the experience you gave him.

You have a great team
Love Sue and Frank
Sue and Frank
Thank you for what has to be the best hour of my life so far. (Sun 10th Sept, 1st flight, 1st jump). I am so glad you managed to hang onto your shades. I had not realised just how close you actually came to losing them, but Jez's excellent photography showed me. Thought you might like to see for yourself, if you haven't seen it already. I definitely want to jump again, but from higher this time, and do more swoops, turns etc. Would love to receive any advice on how to achieve this.
Hope to meet you again one day.
Thanks for the fantastic footage, both on the DVD and the still shots (Sun 10th Sept, 1st flight, 1st jump). Everytime I watch the DVD everything comes flooding back and as yet is keeping me on a high. I expect that will fade eventually, but right now, I still want to do it all over again, only higher next time.
Please pass the following onto Andy Shaw, as I know he has 'other' work commitments!
Back in 2000 I lost part of my right forearm during an incident with a neighbour and a shotgun. Due to the skills of the surgeons at Morriston Hospital in Swansea, I still have the arm and my hand is pretty functional.
Thanks to you guys and the staff at Curves gym in South Wales I was able to raise a little more than ﾣ500 which I am donating to the Burns and Plastic Surgery unit in Morriston hospital. A mere drop in the ocean by some standards, but a great achievement for me, none the less.
Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks once again, for what was the most exciting thing that I have done so far. I would have loved to have stayed around and watched everybody else jump, but pressure from elsewhere meant I had to leave.
Just wanted to drop you guys an email to say thank you for an amazing jump. It truly was breath taking and the minute we landed I wanted to go again. I hope we didn't come across too evil just desperate to get up there!
Being strapped to Loz obviously made up for the wait - 10 fold... :o)
Take care, hope to see you at our next tandem!

Many thanks for an excellent skydive experience last week - it was worth the wait.
As a semi-professional writer I make a habit of recording the details of events I have experienced before the memory fades. My take on our skydive is attached. It may end up in a magazine or newspaper one day! Feel free to use any or all of it in your own promotional literature if you want to.
Thanks too to Jeremy for the DVD - very professional. I've now got the Gorillaz and U2 tracks on my ipod!
