We’ve teamed up with skydiving company Skyline so you can take part in the ultimate challenge.
All you have to do us book with Skyline for a £70 registration fee and then you commit to raising a minimum amount of sponsorship money; £395 for a tandem jump in England and Wales and £450 for a tandem jump in Scotland and Northern Ireland. You can choose from a variety of jump locations all over the UK.
What does the jump involve?
Technically the jump is called a ‘Tandem Skydive’. It is a Skydive because you will be freefalling through the air (without the parachute deployed) for several thousand feet; it is in Tandem because you will be harnessed to a professional parachute instructor at all times throughout the descent. This is the only way you can jump from such an altitude without spending thousands of pounds becoming a freefall parachutist. This is literally the chance of a lifetime!
This jump is also much less demanding than the traditional ‘static line’ jump as the jump and training are completed in one day and your instructor will be in control of your landing.
How much does it cost?
There’s a £70 deposit required to book in, but don’t worry this is part of the £395 we ask you to raise so you’re welcome to reimburse yourself the cost with any cash sponsors you collect once you’ve hit your target! Once your jump has been confirmed you’re all set; you can raise money either online with a fundraising page or offline with cash sponsors.
