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!

Please note: To take advantage of group discounts, the booking for all participants must be made at the same time / within the same order.
From April to September our dropzone is also open on a Friday from 12pm. Book for a Friday and you can take advantage of the following.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. (Please note that this option is subject to availability. We strongly advise to pre-book this before the day).
Or, 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.
This was truly one of the best experiences of my life and I will certainly be back for more now that I have experienced it. The staff at Skydive GB are amazing and they felt like family by the time we left.
