SKYDIVE CHALLENGE

We hope you can join us on Saturday 1st September for this thrilling fundraising challenge, where you will be able to jump from 11,000ft and experience a 120mph rush down to earth! All whilst raising money for a brilliant cause.

WHAT IS A TANDEM SKYDIVE?

A tandem skydive involves the participant being connected to a British Parachute Association qualified instructor through the use of a harness. The instructor will be in charge throughout the whole decent from getting ready through to landing. The participant does not require any experience and will be given a safety briefing on the day of their jump.

You’ll be able to experience the 120mph rush once you and your instructor have left the aircraft for approximately 30 seconds. Then your instructor will deploy the parachute, where you will then experience the peace and quiet whilst gliding slowly back down to the ground.

HOW HIGH DO I JUMP FROM?

Black Knights offer a standard jump from 11,000ft however if you wish to jump from higher, they offer an upgrade to 15,000ft (the highest in the UK!). You can discuss this with them on the day of your jump.

SO HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST?

In order to complete a charity tandem skydive, you must firstly pay a fee of £50 and raise a minimum of £395 per person. Alternatively, you can choose to self-fund the skydive, which costs £200 then you must raise a minimum of £195. You must be within the criteria set by the British Parachute Centre in order to complete your skydive.

Upon arriving at Black Knights Parachute and being unable to jump, a person may replace you should you develop a medical issue or other problem that prevents you from jumping. The cost of this will be £35 for the ‘P6 Insurance form name change’ and £15 admin fee.
