What is a Tandem Skydive?

This jump takes place on one day and there is no training required apart from a briefing with the instructor before hand. The jump is in tandem as you jump with a fully qualified instructor.

After exiting the plane at 10,000 feet you experience freefall for 40-45 seconds and at 5,000 feet the instructor deploys the main canopy and you parachute to the ground. The landing is controlled by the instructor. You just enjoy the view!


How to register

  1. Fill out the register your interest form and let us know which Skydive location you are interested in.
  2. We will get in touch with our Skydive partners and will be in touch with you to book you on a suitable date.
  3. Once a location and date have been agreed you are ready to go!

 

Where and how much?

You will pay for the cost of the jump which means all your fundraising will be sent straight to your local Maggie's centre to help us help everyone with cancer. We ask each jumper to raise £250 so we can continue to provide free cancer support to anyone who needs it.
