Jersey`s fastest and highest activity. If you are an adrenaline junkie, then what better than to take a tandem skydive, travelling at up to 130 mph as you freefall . One of the beautiful aspects of skydiving over Jersey is the view of the whole Island, it’s dramatic contrasting coastline, the other Islands and the French coast. Best view you can get!Normandy Beach over Flights
This is not an exclusive activity to Jersey but is a great trip to make not only to see the French landing beaches but also to see the offshore reefs around Jersey, the other Islands and of course it’s a great way to see our contrasting landscape by air. If you can, make a detour to see Mont St Michel on the French coast, it looks amazing from the air.
Take a trial flying lesson with the Jersey Aero Club. Handle the controls of the modern four-seater dual controlled aeroplane under the watchful eye of an experienced instructor and at the same time you and two of your friends in the rear seats can enjoy the wonderful views of the island and the French Normandy coastlines. Don’t forget the camera!
Learning to Fly
Not only is it VAT free, learning to fly in Jersey also gives the student pilot the advantage of operating from a busy commercial airport, with a supportive air traffic control service in Class D airspace and Class A airways to master. Student pilots learn radio work in both British and French Airspace making flights outside the U.K. a less daunting proposition once qualified. Flight Training Courses for JAR Private Pilot License (PPL), Night Rating and Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC) are available Trial Lessons are also available
Helping Wings is a local charity, whose aim is to enable the disadvantaged and disabled of all ages with the opportunity to share in the excitement of flying who would not otherwise get the chance.
