Skydive With Us

SCF Charity Skydive.jpeg

Take the plunge from 13,000ft by joining us for one of our first exhilarating group skydive!


With a parachute specially designed for two people, you will board an aircraft and soar to around 13,000 feet (approximately two miles high!). When you and your instructor leave the plane, you will fall at about 120 mph, descending to 5,000 feet in around 40 seconds. At this point, your instructor will open the parachute and fly you safely back to earth! During the six minutes or so under the parachute, you will enjoy breathtaking and unique views of the local area and beyond.


If you want to experience every aspect of the sport on your very first jump, a Tandem Skydive is just the thing! Following a short pre-jump briefing, you will enjoy the thrill of free fall and even learn the basics of steering and landing a modern ‘square’ gliding parachute, while securely attached to a highly experienced instructor.

 

We have places reserved at Sibson Airfield, Peterborough on Sunday 5th September 2021. However, if you are unable to attend Peterborough please contact us about other airfields or contact https://ukparachuting.co.uk/ directly. All dates will be subject to change in light of COVID restrictions.

 

The minimum age for participation is 16. Please visit http://ukparachuting.co.uk/terms/ for height and weight limits.

 

Registration is £50 and we ask you to pledge to raise £400 in sponsorship for Sports Connections Foundation.

Costs

Registration: £99

Minimum fundraising: £1,500

We are partnering with TFA to deliver these events and there are two ways of funding your place. For both options TFA require a non-refundable registration fee of £99.

Option 1 - sponsorship

  • You commit to raising a minimum sponsorship of £1,500 per person

  • £1200 of this amount must be received by the charity 1 month before your trip

  • The rest of your sponsorship must be sent in no later than 6 weeks after your return. 

 
Option 2 - Self funder

You may prefer to cover all of the trip costs yourself. To do this you must contact Sports Connections Foundation to make a payment of £651, from which we pay the balance of your trip costs.

Choosing this option means you pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £750 and will aim to send in as much as possible to us before the trip and no later than 6 weeks after your return.
