Gordon

Tandem Skydive Instructor and MD

Total Jumps

6000

Qualifications:

BPA Tandem Master

Gordon founded GoSkydive back in 2008. After meeting a group of passionate skydivers in a bar in the states, Gordon gave the sport a go and never looked back. After spending many years skydiving in South Africa and the US, Gordon was disappointed by tandem-skydiving centres in the UK and thought he could deliver a much higher level ‘end-to-end’ customer experience. GoSkdive is now the UK’s only specialist tandem skydiving centre and by the end of this year over 55,000 people will have jumped with us.

What customers say about this instructor:

Gordon spent a lot of time with me following the training, I was really nervous but he really helped to reassure me and put my nerves to rest. I'm so glad I pushed through the nerves.

AIRCRAFT

Our Cessna Super Cargomaster is the fastest tandem skydiving aircraft in the UK and will get you to your jump altitude in 8 -12 minutes. Refitted to our specific tandem skydiving requirements, this aircraft was new to our fleet in May 2015. It takes up to 21 passengers but reaches its top speed, climbing to 3000ft per minute, with just the pilot.

Parachutes

parachutes

We use industry leading parachute equipment. The United Parachute Technologies Sigma Tandem Parachute System. The parachute container (which looks like a back pack) houses the main parachute and a reserve chute. The main parachute is packed on site by our own team of packers. The reserve chute is packed by an industry approved specialist team off site. At 5000ft your instructor will deploy the main parachute.

camera professionals

Filming with a GoPro camera from 15,000ft at 125mph is a highly skilled operation and only those instructors who are jumping regularly and have a minimum of 500 tandem skydives as a tandem instructor are permitted by The National Governing Body for Skydiving (sport parachuting) - British Skydiving to do this. The results, however, are pretty special!
