What does the jump involve
The majority of people opt for a tandem skydive as you will be harnessed to a professional parachute instructor at all times. This will enable you to complete your training on the same day as your jump. You will skydive from 10,000 feet, freefalling through the air before the parachute is opened at 5,000 feet. Your landing is controlled by the instructor. To take part in this skydive, you will pay a registration fee of £70 and raise a minimum sponsorship of £395.
