Here you'll find everything you need to know about your skydive and what happens on the day.
Each person taking part should aim to raise £400. For organisations this target could be shared across multiple people e.g. if 10 people wish to take part then overall the organisation should aim to raise £4,000 overall. We ask that your fundraising target is met 2 weeks before your jump so that we can cover the cost of your skydive. If you're having trouble meeting your target speak to your Account Manager who will be able to offer support and advice.
What do you need to do to get ready for the day?
- Everyone who wants to take part will need to have signed up using the online sign up form from your Account Manager
- You will be required to complete a Declaration of Fitness form before your jump, confirming you're able to jump. There are some restrictions in relation to medical conditions like diabetes, epilepsy, fits, recurrent blackouts, heart or lung disease, mental illness and some causes of asthma. Full details are given on the form, but if you have any of the above conditions you will need to get your form signed by your GP.

- You'll receive training before taking to the skies for your tandem skydive
- You'll be harnessed to an experienced parachute instructor at all times

- The instructor will control your landing as you arrive safely back on the ground
- You'll receive a certificate to prove you have completed a two-mile high tandem skydive!
