Skydive for Maggie's

Date

Wednesday 4 January 2017 - Sunday 31 December 2017

Location

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 the aircraft door and letting go...

 

 

 

What is a Tandem Skydive?

This jump takes place on one day and there is no training required apart from a briefing with the instructor before hand. The jump is in tandem as you jump with a fully qualified instructor.

After exiting the plane at 10,000 feet you experience freefall for 40-45 seconds and at 5,000 feet the instructor deploys the main canopy and you parachute to the ground. The landing is controlled by the instructor.

You just enjoy the view!


How to register

We've partnered with Skyline to offer you the chance to take part in a tandem skydive.

To book your skydive register online with Skyline or alternatively email us if you have any questions.

You will be asked to pay a deposit of £70 (refundable, so you will jump for free!)

We also ask that you commit to raise a minimum sponsorship of £395 in England and Wales or £450 in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

From your sponsorship amount, Maggie’s will receive an average donation of £140 (the remainder will cover the tuition and jump costs of your skydive) with everything else you raise above your minimum sponsorship coming directly to Maggie’s.

Please download the Information Pack for full details, before you register.

In return for taking on this amazing challenge Maggie's will be on hand to offer fundraising advice and support you as you prepare for your jump.
