Charity Skydive for Florence

1 April // 1:00 am - 31 December // 12:00 am

For those seeking an adrenaline-charged challenge, to mark a milestone occasion, to raise money for local hospice care or to celebrate the life of a loved one, why not consider taking on a skydive or tandem parachute jump for Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity?

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.

Imagine being able to do this for FREE whilst harnessed to a professional freefall parachute instructor and at the same time being able to support Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity!

Stop imagining, it’s real and you can be part of it in 2024…

 

FAQs

£70 deposit paid to Skyline at the time of booking.

We encourage all individuals to raise the minimum sponsorship target of £395.00 per person to be raised by the time of the jump. 

This means your skydive won’t cost you a penny as long as you raise the minimum required. That’s right, by fundraising, you get to skydive completely for free!

For a tandem skydive you must be at least 16 years old and be under 15 stone in weight. The principal medical restrictions are diabetes, epilepsy, fits, recurrent blackouts, heart or lung disease, mental illness and some cases of asthma.

You will be required to sign a medical form before your jump declaring your fitness to take part – this will be sent to you upon receipt of your online booking but is also available on request. Those under the age of 18 will need the medical form signed by a parent or guardian; those with a medical condition will need it signed by their doctor.

Pre-existing physical conditions will not necessarily prevent you from taking part but please inform Skyline of any physical condition as this may affect the location of your jump. If you are in any doubt then please contact us for further information.

Skydiving is a weather-dependent activity and there is always the possibility that we may not be able to jump on your selected date (due to factors such as high wind, rain or low cloud).   You will be offered an alternative date.
