About the event
A Tandem skydive is the easiest and most popular of all skydives. It requires only 30 minutes of training before you then jump strapped to your instructor!
The BPA (British Parachute Association) qualified tandem instructor does all of the hard work for you, allowing you to enjoy the exhilarating feeling of flying through the clouds from over 10,000 feet at up to 120 mph!
It is a truly unforgettable experience.
Most airfields in the UK jump all year round and many offer midweek dates as well as weekends so you will be sure to find a date that suits you. You can check out the Prices and Locations page on the skyline website to see what days the airfield near you operates on. We usually recommend that you book a couple of months in advance to get the date that you want but many airfields can accommodate last minute bookings too so if you are keen to get skydiving as soon as possible then make sure you book now at a UK airfield near you.
What to expect
JUMP 10,000 FT
This is it, your tandem skydive – strapped to your fully qualified, expert instructor, you begin your descent into the pure open sky. As you exit the aircraft, you dive straight into an incredible 30-40 seconds of freefall time, soaring through the sky at rapid speed (approximately 120mph). By this point, your adrenaline will be at its absolute peak – there’s no rush like it!
CANOPY DEPLOYED 5,000 FT
Your parachute opens, and the beauty of the landscape surrounding you suddenly comes into view. The high-octane thrill of the freefall now becomes something more relaxed and inspiring. You will feel as though you are floating through the sky as you slowly descend; be sure to enjoy the view, you’ll never get to experience anything like this again!
And you’ve done it!
All the euphoria and bliss of the tandem skydive will rush through you at this point, you’re back on dry land and you’ve completed a truly incredible experience.
Sign up and funding options
With Skyline Skydiving, you can choose to either pay for your jump yourself, with costs ranging from £270 to £340 depending on the drop zone you want to jump from. Or, may choose to jump for a charity instead. This means your skydive won’t cost you a penny as long as you raise a minimum set amount for that cause. That’s right, by fundraising for a charity of your choice, you get to skydive completely for free!
A small deposit of £70.00 is payable upon booking
The minimum amount you need to fundraise is £395.
Some drop zones require a minimum amount of £450.
The charity sponsorship scheme in place means that rather than paying the money upfront, you can get your skydive booked in first of all – then you can start raising the funds for your skydive through an online fundraising page or simply through cash donations.
