Got my AFF finally on 20th but wouldn't mind a few practice runs in a tunnel

Any time available in Manchester?

Been on airkix site but seems pricey for first timers as I have never been to a tunnel before

That is the reason why it seems pricey. The price doesn't just include your time in the tunnel, it includes the instructor taking you and the others through the classroom teaching side of things too, so that you get given all the basics of body position, hand signals and probably other things too. 

 

It is cheaper for experienced skydivers as they (in theory) don't need that extra classroom tuition. The tunnel will likely make your AFF less daunting and should reduce the chance of repeating levels. If you do go for it, make sure you let your instructor know that you are planning on doing AFF so he may be able to tailor the time in there more specifically for that purpose.

Thanks for reply!

Just want to give myself the best chance of not having to re-sit any levels
