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.
