Experienced Skydivers Welcome To Black Knights
Black Knights Parachute Centre is the longest running parachute centre in the UK and has always welcomed experienced skydivers. Based in the stunning location of Cockerham in North Lancashire the views are vast and include Wales, the Cumbrian Hills and much more.
We operate “Black Hawk” our upgraded Cessna 208B Caravan aircraft for skydiving operations. N208AJ was the first aircraft of its model to be upgraded within the UK, increasing the standard PT6’s 675Hp to 850Hp. This allows us to climb to altitude in record time, with climb rates between 1500 and 2300 feet per minute depending on loading. This means we can get you up in the air for your skydive in super quick time.
