Take on the challenge of a lifetime for the Retail Trust.
The event is organised by Skyline Events and after thirty minutes of training you will be paired with a British Parachute Association qualified tandem instructor and freefall 10,000 feet! The instructor will do all the hard work for you allowing you to just enjoy the view and exhilaration of flying through the sky! A truly unforgettable experience!
What if the weather isn’t looking good?
Skydiving is a weather dependant activity. This means that you may find yourself having to wait all day for the right weather conditions and then not being able to jump. You need to be prepared for this. The airfield will try their very best to ensure that all jumpers are able to complete their skydive on the day, but this might mean having to wait all day.
Can I have supporters come with me on the day?
Of course you can bring along supporters! We would recommend that they arrive about an hour after your arrival time – this would give you time to have your training and get kitted up.
Can I use a GoPro?
The airfields do not allow you to use your own recording equipment for the jump – however you can purchase filming from the airfield on the day. If you would like to have your jump filmed there is no need to book that in advance you can book and pay for that upon your arrival to the airfield on the day.
Is there a weight limit?
Generally participants should be under 15 stone for a tandem skydive with weight in proportion to their height. Please contact Skyline if you have any queries about this prior to booking.
How long does the process take to complete the jump?
You will be given an arrival time – this is when you will check in and receive your training for the jump. The jump time would depend on the weather and how many other people are booked in that day. There is a small chance you could wait all day until you jump. The airfields do operate a first come first served basis though – so the earlier you arrive the earlier you will jump!
What do I wear?
The airfield will provide you with a jumpsuit on the day. You just need to wear comfortable clothing underneath and suitable tie up shoes (trainers or something similar would be ideal).
Can I wear glasses or contact lenses?
You can wear both of these. The airfields will have a range of goggles made to fit over glasses.
