When: Throughout the year

Where: Airfields throughout GB

Picture yourself at the edge of an open doorway, 10,000 feet in the air, peering down at the distant fields. Now imagine the rush of freefalling 5,000 feet through the sky, the tranquillity as the parachute deploys, the breathtaking views as you glide to earth. And the elation of knowing you’re helping to break new ground in heart research. That’s what being a Heart Flyer is all about.

How it works

  • You choose the skydive venue and jump date that suits you best.
  • Your training and skydive are completed in one day.
  • You jump harnessed to a professional parachute instructor, who controls the free fall, parachute opening and landing.
  • If you raise £400 plus any fuel surcharge, you can jump for free as you won't have to pay for the cost of the skydive.

Register

You can either register online or download a registration form. If you would like jump on the same day as someone else, you should each complete a paper registration form and send them in together.

You have to be at least 16 years old to jump, if you are over 16, but under 18, you will need your parent's or guardian's permission.

Most drop zones require jumpers to weigh 15 stone or less, but this can be lower or higher depending on where you jump, your gender and your body mass index.

Before you are able to take part in a tandem skydive you will need to complete a Declaration of Fitness form. This form will be emailed to you by UK Skydive with the confirmation details of your jump, and it will need to be completed and brought with you on the day of the jump. If you are aged 40 years old or over or have one of the medical conditions listed on the form, it will also need to be signed by your GP.

To take part in a tandem skydive, you will need to raise a minimum sponsorship of £400 plus any fuel surcharge to cover the below payments.

 

 Amount  Payable
£50 non-refundable deposit (initial jump fee payment)

At the time of registration

£165 to fund our life saving work (most people find that they raise much more money than this) Two weeks prior to the date of the jump
£185 plus any fuel charge (final jump fee payment) Two weeks prior to the date of the jump (if raised online)
OR
On the day of the jump (if raised offline)

 Total £400 (plus any fuel charge)

 

Some drop zones apply a fuel surcharge. If this applies, the surcharge is normally between £5–£30. UK Skydive will let you know if you have to pay this charge before they confirm your booking. If a fuel surcharge applies you will have to raise that extra amount in addition to the £400 minimum amount required to jump.
