Skydiving FAQs

A Tandem skydive allows you to enjoy the exhilarating feeling of flying through the clouds at 120mph, without needing to do lots of training. You’ll be with a qualified tandem instructor for the whole of the 10,000 feet dive; you’ll jump out and free fall together until your instructor opens your parachute at about 5,000 feet before you float down together to a soft landing. It is a truly unforgettable experience.

Each skydive has a registration fee and a fundraising pledge, which is a minimum amount of money we ask that you raise. Don’t worry – our friendly fundraising team will be supporting you every step of the way!

The fee is usually £70 with a fundraising pledge of £395, but it can vary depending on the skydiving event and location.

If you’re skydiving in Place2Be’s Skydive Event week or organising your own, you can skydive from any of the Skyline skydive locations.

If you’re skydiving for Place2Be in aid of World Mental Health Day, you will be skydiving in Brackley.
