10,000 ft Tandem Skydive
5 October 2019
When: Saturday 5 October 2019
However, If you are unable to jump on this date please contact us on the number below to discuss the possibility of jumping on an alternative date.
Where: Lancaster Airfield
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 free-falling 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.
Stop imagining, and register to take part today and raise funds for Children Today…
Here’s what the skydive involves:
- 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
- Free-fall 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!
All you have to do is raise £395 in aid of Children Today Charitable Trust by asking your friends and colleagues to sponsor you. We’ll be happy to help support you in your fundraising efforts with sponsorship forms and fundraising tips.
