My colleague, Niki and I volunteered to do as skydive to raise funds for a school project. Niki was as cool as a cucumber, having dived before; I was pretty nervous but I have to say the butterflies were gone within minutes of meeting my instructor, Neil - Without his calm instruction, talking me through everything, I would not have enjoyed it so much. It is the best thing I have ever done and undoubtedly down to Niel's brilliant care. Oh and one other thing.....they tried to persuade me to jump from 15,000 ft and I refused - regretting it the minute I was out of the plane. Don't make the same mistake I did!! Thanks to the whole team for helping us get the most from our experience and raise a load of money to boot!! I will be back to enjoy a jump from 15,000ft.
What can I say, this was my first skydive it was absolutely awesome. From start to finish the whole team made you feel so relaxed there emphasis on your safety was second to none, Thank you to every one especially Chris, for making my day so memorable. Your are all a credit to Black Knight.
Well where do I start, firstly I would like to thank Chris for his fantastic skills and professionalism from start to finish he is an amazing instructor, if anyone reading this is worried in any way..... dont be it is a truly amazeballs experience the instructors are fantastic.
Then there is the fantastic flying photographer Levi what a job you did my friend top notch, people you must have a video done no matter what, me and my wife have watched it 30 plus times what a keepsake, thank you as well to all the team that make this happen congratulations to you all xxx

came today 24/6/18 first ever tandem skydive can honestly say Black Knights was fantastic had a brilliant day and my instructor Lee Rhodes was brilliant thankyou so much...would definately recommend Black Knights and i shall be returning regards David
I'm writing this after completing my first two jumps of the six jump RAPS static line package. What an experience so far! The quality of the training and the instructors is first rate, and the equipment used is top notch. As someone with a history of fear of flying, I was amazed at how relatively calm I was for my first jump, and a BIG part of that was the quality of the training provided.
I only stopped after the second jump because of the weather, but I already can't wait to get back and keep progressing! If you're thinking of doing a static line course, I can absolutely recommend Black Knights as the place to do it. And book the six jump package, because you WILL want to jump again! 🙂
Did my tandem skydive today with Neil who made me feel safe, was professional and talked me through everything. Would thoroughly recommend the Black Knights, everyone was so welcoming and friendly. A mention to Phil who took my photos also....
I did it..!!!! a skydive, me and a friend did a dive for R.N.L.I. on the 29th of May.. it was the best experience ive ever done...we was made so welcome from the start and i would do it all again in a heartbeat...i felt i was in heaven !!!!! the best thing ive ever done...everyone should do this in there life time...thank you all for everthing xxx Suzanne Dodd xx
This was the best thing that ive ever done....making memories that i will never forget!!! loved it !!! a must for everyone..thank you so so much Black knights ..
I completed my tandem jump on 28/05/18 for Alzheimer's with the amazing Chris Davison who made the whole experience one to remember, I was smiling from start to finish also big thanks to Elliot my camera man he produce a video to remember. I will be showing this to the children in the school where I work.
Once again an amazing experience with Chris and Elliot I will certainly be back.
I accompanied my partner and daughter to the centre on Sunday 6th May to watch them skydive from 15,000ft, something that I thought I would never be in a million years be able to do. My thinking changed when I met Phil, one of the instructors, who convinced me that if I had even the slightest yearning to skydive that I should do it. I will be forever grateful for his advice. After seeing the centre in action, seeing how knowledgeable and professional the instructors and staff are, I found the courage to book there and then and had the most exhilarating experience when I did a skydive from 15,000ft.
I would like to thank Phil, Chris and Emily as without your input I may have missed out on the opportunity to skydive, an experience which I could never have imagined would have been so exhilarating and which I will never ever forget! Thank you so much xx
Thank you for a wonderful day on the 14th April 2018. The tandem 15000 jump was incredible. The flight up wonderfully smooth and Lee Rhodes was a brilliant tandem instructor, giving encouragement and clear instructions. The cameraman too was superb. Thanks to all involved, especially to Sharon who not only put me at ease on booking and arrival but also was very understanding and kind when after the jump and sitting with my family over a mug of tea I became faint and needed time to get used to being on the ground!
Thank you to you all.
I done my 15000 foot skydive today at blacknights Lancashire for clatterbridge cancer unit, absolutely enjoyed it Steve Rhodes was my instructor he was epic put the shits up me good and propa (quick stand on my feet I’ve got to fix your harness as where freefalling ) haha joking aside really enjoyed it going to be booking on for aff level 1 soon great place very friendly
Thanks lee 👌🏻
I did my charity jump from 15,000ft for Alzheimer's society on 11th march 2018. I have got to say my instructor Steve was amazing, he made me feel so at ease and the jump was amazing. My cameraman Levi was also amazing and made the jump that extra special that I can watch over and over again.
Thankyou to all of you, I will definately be jumping with you again.
I jumped on the 24th of September for The Christie. I was paired with Steve Saunders and thank god that I was as he made the day truly incredible. He's mad as a box of frogs but made me feel so safe that my brain didn't even comprehend that something big was happening until we fell out of the plane. Tony was an incredible cameraman and had me laughing the entire time! I can genuinely say that it was one of the best days of my life and I can't thank or recommend Black Knights enough.
Thank you so much for making it the best birthday I have ever had. It was my 70th and I was jumping for Macmillan Cancer Support in memory of my daughter Pippy, I know she was with me all the way down. I can not praise the staff and my instructor Paul enough, they were all very friendly and professional. The video I had taken was first class and will be a family favourite for years to come. All in all an amazing experience.I will certainly recommend you to every one I know. Than you.
I jumped on 16th Sep 2017 with my wife and two kids and it was the best experience of my life. Everyone at the centre made us very welcome and put at ease at every step of the way. I jumped with Dave and was filmed by Ollie and they were both superb!!
Me and my wife (Tracy) jumped on Saturday 9th September`17 for Wigan & Leigh Hospice, we raised £1,000.
It was a truly electrifying experience, like nothing I've ever experienced before in my entire life.
Great place, great staff, the whole day was amazing.
Thank you to everyone who made it a special day.
particularly Mark (my Instructor) and Emily on the Camera.
Don't even think of not getting the DVD. I keep watching it over and over and laughing to myself. It was well worth the money.
Did my first tandem skydive yesterday, to raise funds for the Wigan and Leigh Hospice. Can honestly say it was one of the best experiences every and the 15,000ft jump was well worth it!! Matt was absolutely great, and I never imagined I would feel so relaxed jumping out of a plane. Thanks Matt and everyone at Black Knights... I have a feeling I will be back!
I did my first ever tandem skydive here today (9/9/2017). It was amazing, the centre is run very well, the staff are all excellent, friendly and professional. I jumped from 15000ft (if you are going to do it you may as well do it properly) and got the DVD which also has loads of amazing photos.
If you want to jump out of a perfectly good aircraft at 15000ft I can't recommend this place enough.
And a big thank you to my instructor, Lee, 189mph freefall!!! WOW.
I did my tandem skydive almost 3 years ago for my 18th Birthday. I remember this day like it was yesterday, and I absolutely LOVED my skydiving experience.
I paid extra to have a DVD of my skydiving experience and it was definitely worth it! Ready to come back and tackle the 15,000ft dive next time. I would recommend it to anyone. One of the best things I've done (although my friends are yet to be persuaded!)
Me and 3 colleagues came here to do a charity sky dive! Once arrived we upgraded from 11,000 ft to 15,000 ft and it was the best decision we made! The views were amazing and at 143 mph and the fastest!
All the staff were friendly and make our first experience one to remember! Their quirky sarcastic comments through the whole morning made us laugh and kept us at ease! My tandem trainer was Lee Rhoder and he was fantastic and talked to me the whole way through keeping me calm! Absolutely loved the experience. Thank you so much!
Myself, my fiance, Jim Scott and my instructor Master Thomas done a tandem skydive today at 15000ft which was such a dream come true experience from start to finish. The guys were second to none and made our day comical and all the more amazing!
To top it all off we done the skydive on behalf of UNITE Martial Arts Academy to raise money so when we get to Sierra Leone, Africa next year we can improve the facilities in schools, orphanages, etc.
myself and my daughter both did a tandem skydive on Friday 4th Aug, what a marvellous experience!!
we had to reschedule jump due to adverse weather but the staff were great , kept us updated right up until our actual jump which went great, clouds cleared away to leave a beautiful sunny afternoon, we also rased approx £1500 for the Marie Curie centre in Woolton which made the jump all thr more worthwhile. thank you all for a friendly and professional experience.
Steve and Jade
What a fantastic experience, loved every second of it! I did a skydive from 15000 feet yesterday morning, raising money for the Alzheimer's Society and highly recommend the Black Knights Parachute Centre.
A special thanks to my instructor Chris, who made me feel safe the whole way through & camera man Levi who documented the experience on DVD & photos (well worth paying for!) – I had such a laugh and will remember this day forever! I'll definitely be back 🙂
Yesterday I did a 15,000ft jump and it was incredible!!!
I'm so happy I went to the Black knights parachute centre, they were all so friendly and very welcoming.
My Instructor was brilliant (thank you Matty) and made my experience even better!
I now have this amazing memory, which was captured perfectly on camera. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you all again!!
I did a 15.000ft jump today ( 28th July) it was AMAZING, absolutely fantastic, best thing I've ever done, my instructor was Lee Rhodes, he was brilliant, made me feel really comfitable, jumped from 15.000ft an out top speed was 153mph, I HIGHLY recommend it and I will definitely be going back to do it again, would like to say thanks to all the staff there, especially Lee Rhodes, thanks mate for the greatest experience and the greatest memory of my life
The most amazing rush!.
Thank you to all the staff at Black Knights for a brilliant day on 24th july and to my instructor Steve Saunders with his dry sense of humour which would have put the shits into most people but I couldn't have asked for a more perfect person to put my life in their hands. Still buzzing from my 15000ft tandem even 2days later but now i just want more... I will be back. If you're thinking of coming here.... Don't think just do it you won't regret it.
Thanks again to everyone, see you again soon.
Had an amazing day today, felt really comfortable all morning before my jump and in great hands when we got in the air, site is fantastic, hope to see you again soon
Had a fantastic day , the staff were all very friendly, my instructor neil was very professional and made my tandem skydive a experience I will be doing again ....thanks neil and all the staff at bk
A big thanks to everyone at black knights, they made me feel as relaxed as possible when skydiving from 15,000 ft above sea level. Lee Rhodes (needs a pay rise) was fantastic, couldn't have asked for a better instructor. Great banter too! Also camera man John, amazing memories captured. Thanks guys, hope to see you again soon. X
