Tandem Skydives at Black Knights Parachute Centre

The Black Knights Parachute Centre has been operating for over 50 years making it the longest running centre in the country.

Skydiving is our passion offering Tandem Skydives, Accelerated Freefall (AFF) and Static Line (RAPS) courses all year round.  All of our Tandem Instructors are trained to the highest standard, set by the British Parachute Association, to whom we are affiliated.

Our Cessna Caravan, fitted with the Black Hawk Upgrade allows us to offer Tandem skydives to 15,000ft, the highest skydive in the UK!

We are based just 15 minutes from Lancaster and Blackpool in the North West, also making us very easily accessed from the M6 motorway for Manchester and Liverpool.

We work alongside many charities throughout the North West, and having our new Head Quarters based in Manchester, gives us a central base for operations, putting us within easy reach of Warrington, Liverpool, The Wirral and even so far as Sheffield and Leeds!  There’s never been an easier way to contact us, or pop in and see us, either at the DropZone in Lancaster, or the Head Quarters in Manchester to discuss your needs.

The Cessna Caravan allows us to offer Tandem skydives to 15,000ft the highest skydive in the UK.

Here at BKPC we take pride in ourselves for offering the best skydive experience we can.

Safe with our Qualified Instructors


The idea of jumping out of a plane might seem terrifying to many people, especially those that are afraid of heights. However, thousands of people in the UK not only try skydiving, but do it again and again.

Part of the fantastic experience that comes with flying across the sky is the confidence and adrenaline rush that goes with attempting an extreme sport. Plus you don’t have to suffer months of physical training to go skydiving, you just have to take a deep breath and commit to trying it.
