Skydive for Charity

Raise Money for Charity!

Need a little persuasion? You could raise lots of money with a charity skydive!

Doing a parachute jump for charity is a great way to raise money for a cause that’s close to your heart. What’s more, you can test your nerves and have lots of fun in the process!

We work with a handful of great charities, most of which will let you jump for free if you raise enough cash! We advise you to contact the charity directly as they may have their own system in place.

Remember, it’s often cheaper for them to book direct with Skydive GB. Leaving the third party agent behind means a larger proportion of the sponsorship money can go to the charity itself.

So what about the skydive?!

Explore the stunning Yorkshire Coastline from almost 2 miles up before taking the leap! Whilst safely harnessed to an instructor, you’ll accelerate to speeds of 120mph and experience the exhilarating feeling of freefall before the main parachute is deployed. You’ll then spend the next few minutes floating back down to earth, and if conditions are right your instructor may even let you steer!

Head over to the Tandem Skydive page for even more details on the jump itself!

Age

The minimum age for tandem skydiving is 16. Under 18’s require parent/guardian permission in the form of signing the British Parachute Association membership agreement and medical declaration here. Participants no longer need a doctor's signature if over the age of 40, however it is advised you read the Medical Declaration Form 115A as described below.


Weight and height limits

The maximum weight for tandem skydiving is 15.5 stone (98.4kg) fully clothed (unless you want to jump naked) and your weight must be in proportion to your height. There is no height limit.


Medical Requirements

There are a few medical conditions which can cause issues when skydiving – these can all be found on the Medical Declaration Form 115A.

It's important that you read and understand the Medical Declaration Form 115A. If you have a medical condition listed, it doesn't mean you can't jump - you will just need your doctor to to sign Form 115B.

If you have any concerns over health and fitness please contact us for advice.

Relive the Experience with a Media Package!

The skydive may feel like it's over in a few seconds, but you can relive the experience again and again with one of our DVD / Photo packages.

Silver Media Package - £70 p/p

With the Silver Package your Tandem Instructor can film the jump with a specially designed 'hand-cam'. You'll get a pre-skydive interview, the plane ride, some close-up freefall action plus footage from the parachute flight.

  • Video
  • Pre-skydive interview
  • Close-up shots
  • Footage from the plane ride, freefall & parachute flight

Gold Media Package - £95 p/p

With the Gold Package you can hire your own personal camera person to jump with you, capturing movie and photos throughout the experience. You'll get a pre-skydive interview, the plane ride, freefall and landing. Your digital photos will be ready to collect shortly after the jump, with your DVD to follow in the post a few days later.

  • Video & photos
  • Personal camera person
  • Pre-skydive interview
  • Different angles captured of freefall
  • Footage from the plane ride, freefall & landing
  • Tandem Medical Self-Declaration - Form 115A

    If you're wishing to carry out a tandem skydive then you need to read and fully understand this form, 115A. If you're happy, and able to agree to this then you can sign this self-declaration. Simply print, sign and bring this with you on the day of the jump.
    If you are unable to agree to this, you will need to have Form 115B signed by a doctor. You can find this form below.

  • Tandem Medical Doctor's Declaration - Form 115B

    If you're unable to agree to Form 115A, then you'll need Form 115B signing by a doctor.
    It doesn't mean you can't participate in a Tandem Skydive, it just means that we need confirmation from your doctor that you're in good health and he/she is happy for you to jump.
    If this applies to you, simply print, read and get it signed by your GP. Make sure you bring this with you on the day of the jump, otherwise you won't be able to participate!

  • What time will I be jumping? +

    We understand it could be useful to know what time you will be jumping but as we get people in the air in the order they arrive and check in, and at times the weather can stop us, it is impossible to give even an approximate time. The best advice is to allow the whole day in case there are a lot of people in front of you in the queue or the weather is against us.

    If you are booked on the solo training course rather than a tandem then your jump will be at the end of the day (weather and time permitting – it can run onto the next day)
  • What if the weather is bad on the day? +

    We are restricted by certain weather conditions for reasons of safety and comfort – if it is too windy or the cloud is too thick we won’t be able to jump. As we are close to the coast the weather can be very changeable and often the forecast can be wrong so it is usually worth sitting it out. Although on the day if we genuinely believe it won’t go ahead then we will advise you. If the weather does mean your jump doesn’t go ahead, all you have to do is arrange another date.
  • Is it safe? +

    All of our instructors are highly trained and qualified under the British Parachute Association and are also carefully selected to give the highest standard instruction at Skydive GB. The equipment used is regularly inspected and serviced and repacked by qualified packers only. The aircraft is regularly maintained in accordance with Civil Aviation Authority regulations and all of our pilots are highly trained commercial pilots. All of this happens under the watchful eye of the Chief Instructor (who is also a Vice President of the British Parachute Association). It is however impossible to say there is no risk at all, as with most things in life, but we do everything we can to minimise and manage the risk.
  • How long does the training take? +

    The training for tandem skydiving isn’t too intensive and usually takes around 20 minutes. For the solo jump course the ground training takes most of the day with regular refreshment breaks.
  • What clothing should I wear? +

    Skydiving is a physical activity so loose fitting comfortable clothes and a pair of trainers (with eyelets, not hooks) are recommended. In can be cold at the jump altitude so bringing a warm top is also recommended. We provide jumpsuits, gloves etc so there is no need to bring your own.
  • Can I breathe in freefall? +

    Yes. You can breathe normally in freefall although sometimes the change in temperature and the fact you’ve just left an aircraft some way above the planet can take your breath away – we will advise you in the aircraft to take a couple of deep breaths when the door opens to get acclimatised to the temperature change.
  • Will I be able to jump with my friend? +

    If you inform check-in when you arrive you would like to share your experience with a particular person then we will do our best to accommodate. Please be aware that we cannot always facilitate this for logistical reasons among others.
  • Are there any refreshment facilities? +

    There is a cafe on site serving hot and cold food/drinks. Currently the bar is only open once all jumps have been completed, i.e the end of the day. Remember, if you are jumping you must not consume any alcohol before you jump.
  • Is insurance included in the cost? +

    Third party liability insurance of up to £5M is included as part of becoming a provisional member of the British Parachute Association. It does not cover personal accident insurance and if required can be taken out separately from several companies who specialise in extreme sports cover.
  • Can I get my jump recorded? +

    We provide a DVD/photo service for an additional £95 for which you will get a dedicated camera flyer who will go up in the aircraft with you and jump out with you. You will be able to take the photographs away with you on the day on a CD and your edited DVD will arrive in the post – usually within two weeks – and will include an interview before the jump, footage from the flight, the freefall itself and the landing.
  • I’m only just over 40 – do I still need a medical? +

    The rules set by the British Parachute Association has now changed, which means those over 40 may not require a medical declaration signing by a doctor. Take a look at the 'restrictions' tab for full details.
  • I am disabled – can I still skydive? +

    We can take people with disabilities depending on the nature and severity of the disability. We would need to assess each person on an individual basis which normally means coming to see us prior to booking a skydive. If you contact us we can discuss options
  • Can I wear my glasses or contacts? +

    We provide goggles for everyone and they fit over most glasses. Contacts are also no problem.
  • Can I bring spectators? +

    Yes you can. We have a comfortable clubhouse with a cafe serving a range of food and drink and an outside spectator area where people can watch the action up close. You can bring as many spectators as you wish although if you are planning on bringing a coach load we would appreciate being warned so we have enough bacon sandwiches in!
