Take part in a 11,000ft tandem skydive and raise vital funds for the hospice.
You will be able to experience the 120mph rush once you and your instructor have left the aircraft for approximately 30 seconds. The instructor will then deploy the parachute, where you will then experience peace and quiet whilst slowly gliding back down to the ground.
Tandem skydive – the participant will be connected to a BPA qualified instructor via a harness. Participants do not need to have any previous experience and will be given a safety briefing on the day.
Am I able to participate in the skydive?
• You must be over the age of 16 years, under 15 stone for males and under 13 stone for females. You must also be over 7 stone. Participants aged 16/17 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult aged 18 years +.
• If you have a pre-disposing medical condition, you must have a 115 declaration of fitness form signed and stamped by your GP or hospital consultant before committing to the skydive.
• If you are aged over 70 or have a physical disability, this does not necessarily stop you from taking part. However, you would need an assessment with the Chief Instructor before booking. Please contact us and we can put you in touch with the skydive centre.
Please be aware that this is a weather dependent event. If the skydive centre advises that the skydive cannot go ahead, we will reschedule the date. We will give you as much notice as we can, but please be aware we may not be informed until the day. Also, please be aware that you may be there all day and could potentially have the skydive cancelled if weather conditions are not safe to go ahead. Friends & family are welcome to come and spectate, but please make them aware that it can potentially be an all-day event.
