Whether you're a self-professed adrenaline junkie searching for a jump with a difference, or searching for an experience to tick off your bucket list, the tandem skydive for Alzheimer's Society has it all.

Feel the wind in your face at 10,000 feet, the adrenaline pumping through your veins while travelling at 120mph, and the pride in your heart when your feet safely hit the ground. Experience a truly unforgettable challenge.

Join us for your tandem jump with our skydiving company, Skyline, at one of 20 airfields across the UK. The participating airfields are Auchterarder, Brackley, Bridlington, Brigg, Cornwall, Durham, Errol, Grange-over-Sands, Haverfordwest, Honiton, Lancaster, Maidstone, Salisbury (Netheravon/Old-Sarum), Norwich, Nottingham, Peterborough, St. Andrews, Swansea and Whitchurch.

25 or 26 May 2024 during Dementia Action Week. Watch spring bloom from a whole new perspective as you take one giant leap for everyone living with dementia.

You will need to pay a £35 registration fee to our skydiving company, Skyline, to secure your place on the day. We will then send you out a welcome pack and monthly newsletters to give you plenty of fundraising ideas to help you hit the £430 minimum fundraising target.

When you fundraise for us, you’ll receive:

  • a welcome pack with fundraising help and materials
  • a free Alzheimer's Society t-shirt (when you raise £430) to wear on the day
  • support from our dedicated events team to help you smash your target

If you have received all the information you need, you can sign up now or telephone the organisers Skyline on 020 7424 5500, stating that you would like to take part in our skydive day.  


Not to worry, you can skydive for Alzheimer's Society at locations across the UK on a date that suits you - for more information and to sign up, visit our tandem skydiving webpage.

You sign up and pay a £35 reg fee to Skyline. We also pay £35 to Skyline to supplement your registration fee. You then need raise £430 before the sponsorship deadline, so we can pay your jump costs (usually around £200, dependent on the airfield). This leave us with just under £200 to continue being there for everyone affected by dementia.

9am 26 April 2024

We need your full £430 fundraising target, to be with us by this date we can cover your jump costs for you (around £200).

You will need to cover the cost of your jump on the day - this will be around £200. However, if you're really close to hitting your target, you could top up the difference on your JustGiving page yourself before the deadline, to avoid paying for your jump on the day!
Yes, each airfield has its own height and weight limits in place for safety reasons. Please check the Skyline website, and make sure you are aware of these limits for your local airfield before signing up.

The one aspect of your day that is out of our control is definitely the weather – if the forecast is looking bad in the days leading up to your jump, you may be contacted by the airfield to reschedule. However, if you have not heard anything to the contrary, you must still turn up to your jump.

Unfortunately, we can't be at all 20 airfields - as much as we would like to be! We will make every effort to attend as many locations as possible, but because of how spread across the country the airfields are, we may not be able to make it to your local area.

Yes it's possible to have your jump filmed at a cost of around £100 (varying depending on the airfield). You will need to arrange this directly with Skyline by emailing them on [email protected]

However, if you raise a minimum of £1000 by the fundraising deadline, you can have your jump filmed for free! If you raise £1000 by 26 April 2024, we will will cover this cost for you as a thank you for raising such an incredible amount for us!

Once you have your skydive booked in, Skyline will send you a confirmation email with everything you need to know. You can also check out Skyline's FAQs which has lots of useful information to help you prepare for the big day!
