Beccles Airfield is home to UK Parachuting, a British Parachute Association Approved Drop Zone operating a 14 place Cessna Caravan C208 aircraft.

UK Parachuting was formerly known as the Ipswich Parachute Centre, and operated for many years at Ipswich Airport The airport was finally closed down in 1996 by the Local Authority in order for the site to be developed. After a brief period of operations in Oxfordshire and Cambridgeshire, UK Parachuting established a base at Old Buckenham airfield, Norfolk in 1998.

In January 2010, UK Parachuting relocated to Beccles Airfield situated on the Norfolk - Suffolk border, near Lowestoft, a short distance from Norwich. The airfield is very accessible from London and the Southeast, Middlesex, Essex, East Anglia, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and the Midlands.

Parachuting and skydiving activities are dependant upon weather conditions being favourable. Suitable weather conditions for tandem skydiving would be reasonably clear skies and not too breezy. UK weather is notoriously difficult to forecast with any degree of accuracy, especially more than 24 hours in advance. You can telephone the parachute centre 01502 476131 the day before your booked date if you have any concerns about the weather. If necessary, your jump can be rescheduled.
