Whether you are an adrenaline junkie or just ready to take on a new adventure, we may have just the challenge for you! Why not reach for the sky and Tandem Skydive from 12,000ft?

A Tandem skydive lets you experience free fall without the need for lots of training. After a brief 20-minute training session, you will be ready to skydive. You will be kitted up and then head to the aircraft. Once you have boarded the aircraft it will only take around 15-20 minutes to reach skydiving altitude. You will free fall from at least 10,000 feet with the parachute being opened at 5,000 feet after you have experienced around 1 minute of free fall. You then get to enjoy the last mile under a canopy with your instructor, taking in the spectacular views before a soft landing back at the airfield. This is the perfect experience for your first jump, as you are attached to an instructor who does all of the work for you, leaving you free to enjoy the view!

Taking part couldn’t be easier. You only need to pay a £70.00 non-refundable deposit (plus a £2.50 booking fee) to Skyline directly. Then create a page with JustGiving and raise a minimum of £450. Turn up on the day, and everything will be taken care of.

Please note that you must raise the minimum to take part however, we’re here to support you get to this target and help raise vital funds for Havens Hospices.
