Can you imagine what it would be like jumping out of a plane, 12,000 feet in the sky and experiencing the incredible rush as you dive into the air and freefall towards the earth at 120mph? Now think about the tranquility when the canopy opens, gliding until your feet finally touch the ground. Take part in our Big Jump and this amazing experience will become a reality!
Date: June 22nd 2019
Location: Swansea Airfield
Registration Fee: £50.00
Fundraising Pledge: £345
Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway of an aircraft flying at 12,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start free-falling at over 120mph! Then …. peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air, steering yourself back down to the centre of the drop zone below. Sound amazing? Imagine being able to do this for FREE whilst harnessed to a professional free-fall parachute instructor and at the same time being able to help an anti-bullying charity!
The technical term for the jump is a ‘Tandem Skydive’. It is a Skydive because you will be free-falling through the air (without the parachute deployed) for several thousand feet; it is in Tandem because you will be harnessed to a professional parachute instructor at all times throughout the descent. This is literally the chance of a lifetime!
The tandem skydive you must be at least 16 years old. There is no upper age limit but if you are over 60 years of age, you will need to complete a pre-assessment at the centre before your booking is accepted.
The weight limits are 15 stone for men and 13 stone for ladies. Everyone doing a tandem skydive will be required to complete a medical form. You will be required to sign a medical form before your jump declaring your fitness to take part – this will be sent to you along with your booking form. Those under the age of 18 will need the medical form signed by a parent or guardian; those with a medical condition will need it signed by their doctor.

Once your online form has been received, you will be sent a booking form which will need to be completed and returned to Swansea Skydive along with your deposit of £50.
Once you have signed up, you can then start collecting your sponsorship to raise the remainder of your jump fee. JustGiving is an easy way to collect sponsorship as you don’t have to chase anyone! The donations that you get will automatically come through to us and we will then allocate them to your own personal fundraising for the event. This must be a minimum of £345 to pay the remainder of your jump fee and raise the minimum sponsorship required.
