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.
