Tandem Skydive

This challenge is run by UK Parachuting in support of Dig Deep. This challenge is a half day activity that will have you leaping for joy. On the day you will have a short pre-jump briefing, so you are prepared for your jump. Then with a tandem 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. UK Parachuting guarantee that your tandem skydive will be one of the greatest experiences of your life.

On the day of your skydive your tandem instructor will explain in detail what you have to do and what will take place during the flight up, the free fall descent and the ride down under the parachute. This briefing normally takes around 20 minutes.


After this, you will be provided with a skydiver’s jumpsuit to go over your clothes (you should wear comfortable clothing, such as a track suit, and a pair of trainers). After fitting the tandem parachute harness (and appropriate headgear and goggles) you are ready to board the plane for the 15 minute ascent. Then it’s one glorious leap out into the blue!


UK Parachuting is affiliated to the British Parachute Association. All tandem instructors are very experienced free fall parachutists who hold BPA Tandem skydiving Instructor ratings. You are in safe hands.


Once you click on the sign up button, you will be directed to the UK Parachuting website to pay your registration fee.
