SkydiveAll year round
Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph! Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air, steering yourself back down to the centre of the drop zone below.
Unless you’re one of the fearless few, this is far easier to plan and book than to actually carryout! With airfields across the country and jump dates available throughout the year, there has never been a more adrenaline-inducing way to support the hospitals.
Like Harrison Wilkins (pictured) who raised over £1,370 earlier this year by taking part in a birthday skydive to support the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. He says:
“The skydive was awesome ,I would recommend it. And to top it off, I got to raise some much needed money for the Royal Free Charity.”
So, what are you waiting for? If you want to try something new, why not register your place below? And remember, don’t look down… unless you really want to!

About your jump
- Jump and training completed in one day
- Harnessed to an experienced parachute instructor at all times
- Jump from at least 10,000 feet – just like the professionals
- Freefall down to 5,000 feet – falling through the air at 120 mph!
- Ride the parachute down to the ground – we teach you how to steer onto the drop zone
- Landing controlled by your instructor
- Certificate to prove that you have completed a ‘two-mile high’ Tandem Skydive!
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.
