Saturday 14th March 2020
Is a skydive on your bucket list but you haven’t quite got round to it? Well this is the perfect opportunity to finally tick it off!
We are hosting a fabulous skydive day on Saturday 14th March for individuals in the Birmingham, Solihull and Sandwell business community, helping you to release your inner adrenaline junkie and take on the 10,000ft drop for hospice care.
On the day you’ll arrive at Tilstock Airfield, where you’ll be registered for your dive; after this point you’ll be free to relax with your friends and family, or network with other professionals completing the dive until you’re called to go.
This is the easiest way to jump, a tandem dive is done in a dual harness so you are securely attached to a qualified instructor at all times. Because the instructor takes care of the important parts of the jump, such as opening the parachute and landing, you can just enjoy the exhilarating experience, and your preparation for the jump is usually only 30 minutes.
What does it cost?
Upon booking your skydive place you will need to pay a £50 non-refundable deposit. This amount is taken off the final jump cost.
The remaining jump cost is £180 – but as long as you reach our minimum sponsorship target of £395, this is covered by the hospice.
Alternatively, you may wish to pay for the entire jump cost yourself which means 100% of your sponsorship money will come to the hospice.
That moment when you’re just floating through the air, when you feel like you’re actually flying, it’s just incredible. – Maria
