Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph!

Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air, steering yourself back down to the centre of the drop zone below. Well you can stop imagining because it’s real and you can do it at an airfield near you by reserving a place on one of our 10,000 feet freefall tandem skydives…

Where can I jump?

We work with ‘Click and Jump’ who offer tandem skydives from the following locations: Banbury, Bridlington, Brigg, Cambridge, Cark, Durham, Honiton, Lancaster, Maidstone, Norwich, Nottingham, Peterborough, Salisbury City, Salisbury Plain, St Agnes, Swansea and Whitchurch.

How much does it cost?

The registration fee is £50 (or £100 if jumping with the Red Devils) and then you have two options:

Fundraising – Pledge to raise £395 for WellChild and the cost of your jump is covered

Self-fund – Cover the cost of the jump yourself (£230-£285 depending on location) and raise as much as you can for WellChild (no set fundraising target).

Do I need any experience or training?

Tandem skydiving is perfect for a first-timer, with training (around 30 minutes) given on the day of the jump.  You will be attached to a highly skilled Tandem Instructor, who will control your descent and landing as you jump from 10,000ft!

Is there an age limit?

There is no upper age limit, you just have to be at least 16 years old.

Covid-19 Update

Most parachute centres in England are now open and Click and Jump are taking bookings (some sites are currently only offering jumps at the weekend).  There are guidelines in place and the greatest care is being taken to ensure the centres are safe environments following the restrictions set out by the British Parachute Association and the UK Government.  You will be required to wear a neck tube/buff, as a face mask is unlikely to stay in place during the jump.
