Having started parachuting in Devon in 1988 I very quickly became totally immersed in this exciting sport. Now, after many years of competition both National and International, I spend a large amount of my time introducing people via Tandem and AFF to my passion. I also provide Instruction in all aspects and levels within the sport. Aerial Photography is one of my favorite areas and I have captured still and video images for many publications and t.v programs both at home in the UK and abroad.
Our team members...
Having left the RAF to start Infinite Skydiving Solutions I set about providing each and every student with not only the information to carry out a parachute descent but the support and coaching throughout the courses that only comes with years of experience in every aspect of the sport. Our students qualify safe in the knowledge that we are always on hand to assist them in their future skydiving requirements.
Whether you are doing a one-off Tandem descent, an AFF level one or the full course to become a fully licensed skydiver, we are here to guide you and help allay the inevitable fears you have at making your descent. We feel this way you will get maximum enjoyment from the whole experience and feel welcome and at ease in our wonderful sport.
To this end the Instructors we have on our team are not only very highly qualified instructors but outstanding in their chosen disciplines within the sport, read their individual bios to see their awesome achievements... these are the people who will be your personal instructors every step of the way.
I look forward to skydiving with you soon.
